any recent thermage patients with fat loss?

Postby miaou5 » Mon Mar 16, 2009 11:21 pm

so i've been reassured countless times that fat loss is not a possibility in this day and age, but somehow i still wonder...

are there any recent thermage patients who have experienced fat atrophy?

thanks in advance for any help!!

Oh darling! Don't be insane! Please. It still happens even with modern machines. It makes me sad that you are considering such a high risk procedure. I am sure you are very beautiful. Thermage has ruined many a lovely face.

Belindah is correct, fat loss has been reported in cases with the "second generation" RF devices.

Do some reading on this board (Laser Skin Resufacing...", and the "Non-Surgical" board further down.

Research, research. Forewarned is forearmed. Why take the chance for a product that even doctors say gives minimal lasting results. Dr. Mani (whose board is now locked) even said there would not be a great deal of difference as do a couple of the active docs still on the board.

Please be careful.

I experienced fat loss from a thermage treatment. I was told that it was impossible for the machine to cause any negative side effects, because it was a 'second generation machine.'
I really have had some pretty negative side effects from just one treatment, including fat atrophy, and horrible linear marks under each cheekbone, dents in my forehead etc etc.
I have also spent thousands trying to correct these issues, but it is ongoing.

Please think carefully before having this done.

Hi DCNGA,

I'm doing okay! It just upsets me when I think others are considering this treatment......

You are a true angel though x
