It is certainly possible that your friend did have a result from Thermage. It could also be possible that the result is from the addition of good skin care; hard to tell which. The problem I have seen in the Thermage results is that in some patients there is a real difference and in others there is not any. I have been told that even in patients who get a result, they do not last, but again I do not have any personal experience with the procedure. The healing process only lasts about 3 months, in my opinion, so I wouldn’t expect the results to get any better after that amount of time. As for whether the price was worth it only she can answer that question. If she has seen a real result and is happy with the improvement then I would say she received a fair value. I prefer to utilize procedures that produce reliable results in every patient. Therefore I do not offer Thermage.
