Thermage Concerns

October 27, 2008
Hi DR. Rivkin,
I just read a thread on horror stories as a result of Thermage.
Do you have any other suggestions for non surgical face lifts?
I especially need it for my jowls and loose neck.
Thanks!


hi,
most of the thermage horror stories are about the older version of the machine. people were running the settings too high or they were putting their patients under anesthesia and causing damage to their skin. today's thermage machines are quite safe. i have never seen a serious problem with my thermage treatments. the only complaint has been that the results are sometimes not consistent. some people get really good results, while others don't see enough of a difference. even the ones that don't see a big difference, however, are happy after a second treatment.
i say all this because there is nothing else that i know that tightens skin around the jawline, jowls and neck skin better than the radiofrequency technology of devices such as thermage. its not a great device, but its what we have right now.
cheers,
