Is Thermage safe for African American skin?

Is thermage suitable for for African or Afro Americans?

Yes –  it’s extremely safe because it uses radiofrequency (a sound wave) and is not laser (light waves).   Radiofrequency based technologies like Thermage are safe for all skin types/colors, can be done any time of year and don’t require sun avoidance like many lasers. Here is more information about Thermage treatments.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
