Thermage, Ultherapy, Exilis – do metal plates in the head and neck area affect them?
First……..you must disclose this to your dermatologist or whoever is doing the consult and always check this directly each time and each treatment. Safety first!
Secondly, here’s the thing to consider. When a treatment uses a radiowave current there is often a grounding pad. There cannot be any metal between the treatment site and the grounding pad because it could “heat up” or change the metal in someway that could be harmful to your health. As long as any metal is well away from that pathway, the sound (radiowaves) won’t heat it up. So it depends on exactly where the metal is.
Hope this helps, Dr. I
