Thermage, Refirme and FotoFacial
Any thoughts on the safety of these procedures, particularly Refirme?
the accounts that you are reading about thermage are old. the thermage system and radiofrequency technology in general have imporved in the time frame since these reports. i have a thermage system and i have not had any trouble with the treatments, in fact they have had better than expected results.
it used to be that the machines were designed to deliver high intensity energy deep into the tissues. this was painful and dangerous. we have seen that lower intensity works just as well and the current machines (thermage and refirme) are therefore safer, less painful and more effective.
fotofacial is not going to do that much for skin texture, although it probably will help with the redness.
hope that helps,
