Dr. Hillelson is terrific.

When Thermage first came out i was one of her first patients. It was very painful way back then.

I had an other one a few years later and it was much better with minimal pain. It did tighten my skin and hold back time.

You could not ask for a better doc though.

I had it done two years ago. A definate waste of money. I also think it made my neck worse. If you are a thin person, don't do it. (If you are a normal person, don't do it).

This year I got a neck lift which was cheaper than thermage. An the neck lift was under full sedation with an anathesiologist present and an overnight stay in the clinic (I live in Slovakia, and the cost was about $2,000 or 1,500 euros). I'm beginning to think that there is no subsitution for cutting.

Hopefully, this company with cease to exist one day.

Thermage is radiofrequency energy

Please everyone do your research, before any of these procedures! WAIT before trying anything new on the market I think many doctors are using these thermage machines because they invested in something that has more risks than benefits . From what I've read there are tons of women that had this radio frequency energy treatment they may look good at first after a few months their face are worse dimples, sunken and hollowed out . Some women are lucky and don't have side effects, but enough women have been impacted by the negative effects from Thermage or radio frequency energy so that scares me enough to make you run as fast as you can the other way!
