Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency procedure for skin tightening and contouring that takes place in a single treatment-with no injections, and little to no downtime
Thermage can effectively and safely treat skin on most parts of the body, including the face, eyes, lips, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks. On the face, Thermage can treat prominent jowls, facial wrinkles and lines, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin ("turkey neck"), under eye bags, hooding and rough texture on the eyelids. Elsewhere on the body, Thermage can treat wrinkled, creepy, sagging or bulging skin as well as temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite
All skin types can be effectively treated with Thermage.
Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of the skin. The heat tightens existing collagen and stimulates the formation of new collagen, which reduces sagging, renews contours, improves the smoothness and tightness of the loose skin, thus leading to softening of wrinkles and lines, and an overall younger looking appearance.
Treatment duration depends on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated and averages about 45 minutes for the face and up to an hour and a half for other parts of the body.
Measurable tightening and contouring commonly appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session. Results can last years depending on the skin condition and aging process.
