A skin-tightening device that contours and gives an uplifting effect for an overall younger looking appearance on the face, neck, eyes, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks.
HOW IT WORKS:
As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Thermage uses patented radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, to start the body’s own renewal process, stimulating and promoting new collagen synthesis for younger looking skin.
The latest evolution of Thermage includes CPT – gentle vibration sensations and dispersed cooling bursts that make the treatment even more comfortable
As we age, collagen and elastin in our skin simply break down faster than we can rebuild them, causing skin to easily lose elasticity. This is generally most noticeable around the eyes where skin is delicate and thin. Heavy “hoods”, fine lines, as well as our brow line, can make us look worn – Thermage treats the upper and lower eyelids to help you look more rested and youthful.
Considereing that our face is the area most exposed to sun damage, sagging skin becomes common as we age and features lose definition, especially in the jawline, lips and neck. Thermage helps smooth wrinkles and changes collagen structure to ensure healthy skin.
Although skin is our bodies’ largest organ, our skin’s resiliency and elasticity decreases as we age. The effects of aging can become apparent on our bodies
namely through unwanted bulges and dimples that cannot be repaired simply with exercise or diet. Thermage evens the skin and can temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite as well. Treatments typically last up to 90 minutes for larger areas of the body.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING TREATMENT:
Cooling and heating sensations will be felt throughout each pulse, and your feedback on the level of heat sensation will ensure maximum results. Patients may experience temporary discomfort during the procedure for which pain medication is given. Length of treatment is 1-2 hours depending on area being treated.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER TREATMENT:
Some patients exhibit a temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment but this usually goes away within a few hours. Mild or moderate pain localized within the treatment area is rare.
There’s no special care needed after the procedure and most patients return to their regular activities right away. Collagen production is progressive. Patients will start seeing results at the 12 week mark which continue to progress for up to 6 months. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and natural aging process.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS:
Thermage is effective with just one treatment.
