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.
