I've had severe acne & scarring for probably 15 years on my face and chest. I also had a lot of red splotchiness on my cheeks. After one treatment, the redness almost completely disappeard. I couln't believe it. Blemishes that show up are a shadow of their former selves (smaller, not red, disappear much faster). I had tried many, many things in the past to improve the situation but nothing worked until Thermage. It was a miraculous change for the better-much better!!
