ThermaCool for facial wasting
Jun 11, 2003

I am 39 years old and have been HIV+ for 10 years. While my weight has been stable for years, lately I've noticed that my face is looking more drawn and gaunt with a mild sunken look to my cheeks. I've been reading a lot lately about ThermaCool, an FDA-approved surgical process that heats up the skin to stimulate collagen production. Do you know if this product/process has been used to treat HIV/AIDS facial wasting?

Response from Dr. Moyle

I would suggest seeking advice on

Good luck
