Default Thermage scam?

i havent heard one positive story personally from anyone on this thermage. it's not cheap (2 to 3 thousand) and all i hear is people don't even notice much of a difference. yeah it sounds like a great product --- using intense heat to tighten skin and increase collagen production but if youre trying to do that in place of a neck lift or face lift your just going to come out of it dissappointed. i think the only reason doctors push it is its an easy procedure to do with high profits.

In my opinion thermage is not a scam however many people have unrealistic expectations of the outcome and it doesn't help that some doctors may stretch the truth to make the sale. Thermage is a non-evasive way to mildly tighten up your skin and promote collagen production as found in more youthful skin. Only expect a mild improvement. If you have wrinkles and folds of skin this not change those. Thermage is not an alternative to a face lift I would just look at it as a way to freshen up your skin similar to a laser treatment. The drawback with Thermage is the price of $2000 to $3000. If it were about 1/3 to 1/2 that price I would recommend it more because I would say for the average person it is not worth spending that kind of money. However if money is no issue for you then it doesn't hurt to give Thermage a try.

allegedly all thermage does is heat your skin until you burn in your dermis. this is why it will hurt you so much and everyone complains about that. the machine the doctors buy only costs $30 thou and then they charge patients $3 thou for treatment? 10 treatments = price of machine!!! this thing is for greedy doctors and the manufacturer. if no one can give a fully satisfied review then that should tell you soemthing right there.

Thermage treatment is an non-surgical, FDA approved procedure that offers an innovative way to rejuvenate your face which involves the application of radio frequency energy to your face. This energy strategically heats collagen, which composes your skin. Thermage unique deep-heating technology stimulates and renews your own collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin.

I haven't heard as much "buzz" about Thermage as of lately. It appears its popularity is dying down. Not that it ever was extremely popular.

Now what do all the doctors do with their Thermage machines they paid $100,000 for?
