What is Thermage?
Over 10 years ago, Thermage® pioneered the way for radiofrequency treatments and has now been used in over a million treatments across 80 countries. Thermage® creates real, natural results that cannot be achieved from creams or lotions, and the convenience of treatments makes it easy to fit into even the busiest schedules.
Thermage® is safe for use around the eyes, face and body, and its gentle heating underneath the surface of the skin stimulates the production of collagen. This process jumpstarts your body’s natural healing system, resulting in skin that is smoother, tighter and refreshed over time.
How safe is it?
The Thermage® procedure is very safe. Although it is possible that skin damage can occur, this advanced treatment has been studied carefully in hundreds of patients with minimal reports of lasting adverse effects.
Who can be treated with Thermage®?
Thermage® works on all skin types and colors, and both men and women often benefit from the laser skin tightening and collagen stimulation that Thermage provides.
How long will the effects of the Thermage® procedure last?
Recently published studies show that improvements continue for at least six months after a single treatment session. Other studies show that thermal collagen changes can last several years, depending on the rate of the aging process.
“I get now why I’ve heard the name ‘Thermage’ so many times before this. This stuff is powerful. What I love is that my skin feels so much better. I can walk around and feel the effects without even seeing them. But then when I look in a mirror, I get even more elated by what Thermage has done for my skin. I look 5 years younger, and it was done without any pain or discomfort. I couldn’t be happier.”
Thermage® is effective on:
The Eyes – hooding,fine lines and even our brow line can make us look worn-down. Thermage treats the upper and lower eyelids to help you look more youthful and rested.
The Face – as we age, phrases like “turkey neck”, loose jowls, sagging skin and “what happened to my jawline?” creep in. Thermage smooths lines and wrinkles and remodels collagen for the overall health of the skin.
The Body – aging doesn’t just affect the skin on our faces, our bodies see the effects too, with crepey, sagging skin and unwanted bulges and dimples. Thermage is a non-invasive way to smooth the skin on our bodies and even temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite.
How does Thermage® work?
Thermage® consists of a four-step process:
- The beginning of treatment consists of a cooling effect to increase patient safety and protect the outermost layers of skin.
- A specially-designed treatment tip is then placed against the skin.
- Radiofrequency energy is delivered directly into treated areas, gently heating the deeper tissues.
- More cooling is applied to the skin to soothe it.
What does a Thermage® feel like?
With each touch of the Thermage® treatment tip, you will experience a brief intense heating sensation as the collagen in deep layers of your skin is tightened. To protect your skin and make the treatment more comfortable, a cooling spray is delivered before, during, and after each application of the treatment tip. Significant improvements have been made in the past few years making this treatment much more comfortable!
