Thank you for posting a link to this blog Ovid...
I have experienced almost identical facial damage to the woman shown in the picture on this blog.
Including the linear marks across the cheeks and forehead...and dents and volume loss too.

Hi Poppy,

I have been watching your post and just wondered if the fat loss has stablised by now, nearly a year down the line?

Hi Vandar

Its probably eighteen months down the line now, and I think the fat loss
and damage has stabalized, but it is hard to tell because I have been having corrections ie temporary fillers, its a tricky situation that seems to be never ending. The half moon shaped marks under each cheekbone seem to be the hardest part to correct.
There are so many with similar fat loss complications on the laser support group......

That is dichotomous if he's (Dr. Y) believing what he reads in the article on Thermage, seeing has how he has a diclaimer saying he STILL performs Thermage in his clinics :shock: .
I no longer post on MMH. Please contact me via email.

Hello, I would like to hear more about "thermage" and its side effects. Now, is 2012, has it improved or is it as bad as we read above?

NO, NO, NO. I had the procedure November 2012. Supposedly the new improved equipment does not damage. Well, it has been the single worst mistake that I have ever made in my life. I have all the same symptoms as those reported and now 7 mos later I look 10 years older, and more and more damage keeps appearing. Now I am seeing gridlike marks appearing on the left side of my face. My undereyes are now bagging with dark circles and the hallowed sick look. Lines all over my once smooth skin (like a prune), and orange peel and dents all over. I did this for preventative measures to my almost flawless face. My jowls were showing a little sign of sagging, so I thought I would tighten them up. Never would I recommend for preventative. This procedure will send you for a face lift and fat graphs 10 years before your time. I avoid mirrors now - sad. I just wish I had my old face back.

I had thermage one year ago. Don't do it!! It dissolves the fat in your face and leaves you drawn looking. It did tighten my gobbler which I like. Everyone comments I lost too much weight which I have not lost any. So sad about this. Don't do it!!
