As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down, causing it to look lax and dull. Thermage will make you look younger with better contoured, smoother skin and softened lines and wrinkles. It can be used on most areas of the body, including the face (wrinkles, jowls, turkey neck, baggy eyes and undefined lips), stomach, arms, hands, thighs, buttocks. As it tightens the skin, it also temporarily reduces the appearance of cellulite.
What is involved in a Thermage treatment?
The radio frequency energy heats the deeper dermis layer of the skin, whilst protecting and cooling the epidermis (outer layer of skin), stimulating the growth of new collagen. During the procedure, the surface of the skin is kept cool.
The treatment takes around one to two hours and does not result in any down time. Some results are noticeable immediately, and some after about six months when new collagen is produced.
Is Thermage safe?
Yes, Thermage is completely safe in the hands of expert practitioners. As the heat is delivered into the skin, a cooling system keeps the surface of your skin cool and unharmed.
Is there any downtime after a Thermage treatment?
None whatsoever. You can go straight back to work or other activities following your procedure.
What are the results of Thermage and how long will they last?
The results appear over the following two to six months as the new collagen growth tightens the underlying skin, improving the visible contours and texture. Unlike many other treatments, only one session is needed to achieve results. As the process stimulates collagen growth, your new appearance can last years, depending on your age and level of skin laxity.
