My rosacea doesn´t seem to be severe. Is there any contraindication for trying Thermage in my face?

While there is no harm in using Thermage on someone who has rosacea, in my experience Thermage does not produce improvement in the signs and symptoms of rosacea. If you need Thermage treatment for other reasons such as facial contouring then your results will not be affected one way or the other by the underlying rosacea as long the skin is not particularly inflamed.
