What is Thermage® – skin tightening?
Thermage® is a non–invasive Radio Frequency Energy System. Its volumetric and uniform heating is passed into the subcutaneous tissue layer causing immediate collagen contraction and stimulation. It only requires one treatment, although many patients are so thrilled with their result, they may choose to have treatment every 1-3 years to maintain and achieve further improvement.
Is it right for me?
Patients, who are looking for a non–invasive solution to tighten their skin, and correct obvious areas of skin laxity such as along the jawline may strongly benefit from Thermage®. This procedure will benefit patients who are not quite ready for a facelift or other surgical procedure but who would like to have the subtle appearance of tighter, more youthful skin along the facial contour and around the eyes. Thermage® can also improve acne scarring and loose skin under the chin area. Thermage® can be used safely on all skin types in both males and females.
What to expect?
A grid will be placed on the skin to identify the areas of concern, which may include the full face and eyes. The Thermage® hand piece will be passed over each area and uses vibration to make the treatment more comfortable. Being that collagen growth is a gradual process, it can take from 4–6 months to see the full result, which is when we will see you back for your post-photos. There is minimal to no downtime with the Thermage® procedure and patients can return to work immediately.
