Thermage
I did not tell anyone I was having anything done and recently several co - workers mentioned that I looked great and wondered if I had lost weight (I hadn't).

Adverse Effects
Thermage
This is a big rip-off! I was told that it wouldn't hurt because of the topical numbing cream...it was worse than a root canal without novocaine! The worst part is that they told me I would see results in 3 - 6 months; I wasn't expecting a miracle, ..... full text >>

My friend and I had been hearing about all the wonderful benefits of Thermage so we started shopping for a place with competitive prices and previous experience. It was extremely painful, so much so that it made me nauseous... full text >>

Leading up to my 40th birthday I decided things were looking for a little bit of a lift. Not ready for surgery, and not one for injectibles I was recommended Thermage.

I researched this product and didn't go for it untill I read that the fat narcosis had been fixed. I got the recommended 900 pulses and was told that it worked on some and not on others. Naturally I thought it would "work" on me to tighten my skin... full text >>

It cost £3,500 and it did nothing at all. It did hurt but if it had worked that wouldn't have been a problem for me. I had to sign a disclaimer and when I complained that there had been no change, the oh so nice doctor became cold... full text >>

This was like a mini-facelift, and the next day I looked ok to go out (my husband didn't even realize something had been done). Then I saw gradual improvement up to about 6 months (getting younger every month is great fun), then results have held steady... full text >>

I am now three years post this proceedure and cannot emphasise enough that this treatment should NOT be allowed. I was deciding between this proceedure and a thread lift.

After reading extensively about various noninvasive skin-tightening procedures, I decided to try Thermage. At 52, my main concerns were sagging skin around my mouth, jaw line, and neck.

The actual Thermage treatment was difficult but expected. I have seen results in just a couple months, but full results are usually not seen right away so I am still optimistic.

I researched Thermage in great detail. I am approximately 2 months post-procedure and can see positive changes in lower facial skin laxity and fine wrinkling.

I'm a fair-skinned 48-year-old female. I had thermage twice. My doctor convinced me from the photos she took that my skin had tightened from the first procedure, and thus I would benefit from a second procedure, so I did it again... full text >>

Adverse Effects
Thermage Thermacool
At an average cost of $2000 per treatment with no visible benefits and an extremely painful procedure, I'd warn others to stay away from going for Thermacool.
