Thermage & FaceL: Very Doubtful!!! In fact if you desire a slightly more 'pull' after a FaceLift than consider the FDA approved "Silhouette Lift" - NOW THAT WORKS!!!

Thermage facelift: Thermage isn't a substitute for a facelift, but can be an adjunctive procedure. Its a noninvasive procedure, so the results will be minimal. Therefore, patient expectations have to be low and reasonable.

Minimal result is a vast over statement! If looking for non invasive/minimally invasive FaceLift LOOK at the FDA approved SILHOUETTE LIFT!!!!

Thermage & Facelift: Thermage uses radiofrequency and can help maintain facelift results but cannot replace the benefits of a facelift. By itself you will see modes skin improvement
