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.
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 a patient not ready to go "under the knife" with a conventional facelift.
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 since it is different than a laser treatment, it does not affect the skin color.
Not at all! Since we have the latest technology, the procedure is completely comfortable. You will have a pleasant experience and be satisfied with the outcome.
Only one treatment is required. However, as many patients are so happy with the results, they often opt to have another treatment within a year to achieve additional tightening.
Patients see immediate results and continue to improve for six months after treatment. The effects can last for years, depending on your skin condition and the natural aging process.
