Are radiofrequency and Thermage the same thing?
Maybe the easiest way to explain this is that it’s like the difference between generic and trade drugs. For example, the generic name is tretinoin and then the same medication is marketed as Renova, Retin-A, Refissa, etc. with the only differences being the cream/gel base it’s in and the concentration.
For your question, radiofrequency is the generic term and then there are all these devices that use this basic technology but marketed under different trade names like Thermage, Ultherapy, Exilis, etc.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
