Thermage is a non-invasive, radiofrequency cosmetic procedure that can smooth, contour, tighten and renew your skin’s collagen.
Thermage basically works by two mechanisms: deep heating that works on tightening the deep collagen in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, while also stimulating the formation of new collagen. An integrated cooling system protects the surface of your skin during the procedure.
Thermage can treat sagging face skin, eyelid hooding and loose jowls while redefining the jaw line. On the body, Thermage can treat wrinkled, sagging, or bulging skin and improve the appearance of cellulite on the abdomen, arms, hands, thighs, and buttocks.
Typically Thermage is a single treatment procedure depending on the treated area. Immediately after a treatment the area maybe red with a slight tenderness during the next day. There is almost no downtime, and the natural collagen rebuilding usually happens over two to six months — although visible results may be immediate. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and natural aging process.
