How does it work?
Thermage® uses patented radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely deliver heat and focused energy to the deeper layers of your skin. This RF energy stimulates and tightens existing collagen and promotes new collagen growth. The new collagen enhances facial contours resulting in a radial tightening effect.
How can I treat my sagging skin without surgery?
As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. The Thermage procedure tightens aging skin, giving you a more youthful appearance. In the past, when patients wanted to tighten and lift aging skin, invasive facelift surgery was the only option available. This non-invasive, no downtime, no scar alternative can provide tissue tightening to the patient that is not ready to go “under the knife” with a conventional facelift.
Am I a candidate for Thermage?
The most common complaint we hear from our patients is they are unhappy with sagging jowls, neck and cheeks. Thermage is the ideal treatment for them. Other areas of the body treated by radiofrequency include the abdomen, arms and thighs. Thermage works on all skin types and it does not affect the skin color since it is not a laser treatment.
Does it hurt?
Not at all! Since we have the latest technology, the procedure is completely comfortable. You will be pleased with the experience and delighted by the results.
How many treatments are required?
Only one treatment is required. However, patients are so happy with their results they often opt to have another treatment within a year to achieve additional tightening.
When will I see results and how long does it last?
Patients see immediate results and the effects continue to improve for six months after treatment. The effects can last for years, depending on your skin condition and the natural aging process.
