Should I consider body Thermage for my upper arms?
I really don’t recommend body Thermage. It doesn’t work well and is expensive, in my opinion. As you know, for the right patient, I think Thermage on the face/neck can be quite a nice modality. The body tip has never worked as well unfortunately.
My recommendation would be to wait for Coolsculpting by the Zeltiq company to get their FDA approval for the upper arm adaptor which will hopefully be in the next year or two. Some centers are using the current adaptors which are FDA approved for the abdomen and flanks for the arms, but I really don’t recommend that. Dr. I
