Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
What is Thermage?
Thermage is a safe, non surgical face lift, that’s clinically proven to help tighten and contour your skin. Using its unique deep-heating technology, Thermage stimulates and renews your own collagen, resulting in skin tightening.
Thermage is completely non-invasive, a facelift without surgery: no surgery or injections. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. The procedure is typically performed in a single session. And because it’s a non surgical face lift, there’s little to no downtime – so you can quickly resume your normal routine.
Affected Areas: Many patients have seen:
- Flatter, smoother skin on the tummy, legs, knees, buttocks or arms
- Skin Tightening, firming and lifting
- Softened wrinkles above the knees
- Reduction of crepey skin
- Smoothed dimples for temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite
How it Works: To understand how Thermage works, it helps to know a little about how your skin works.
The skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer (also known as the fat layer) that has a web of collagen fibers running through it.
As you age, collagen in these three layers break down and your skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Naturally, treatments that work on just the surface can’t do anything to restore the collagen in the dermis or the inner subcutaneous layer of your skin.
Thermage is the only facelift without surgery. A non-invasive procedure available that results in skin tightening and renews your skin’s collagen in all three layers. How? Thermage’s unique Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. The improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment, due to new collagen growth.
Thermage is safer than invasive cosmetic procedures. It is a non surgical face lift, and unlike lasers, it works on all skin types and colors. Best of all, you only need one treatment to obtain the full benefits.
Procedure: During the treatment, you’ll feel a brief, heat sensation each time Thermage delivers energy to the underlayer of your skin. This indicates that your collagen is being stimulated and tightened. Thermage is a very safe procedure. Side effects are generally mild and may include redness, swelling, blisters, bumps and rare instances of surface irregularities.
Recovery: There’s no special care needed after the procedure and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
