The clinically-proven, unique radiofrequency (RF) treatment Thermage:
*Results and patient experience may vary.
Thermage works from the inside out. It transfers heat to the outer skin layer (epidermis), causing collagen to contract and gradually reform. Because outer layers of the skin are unaffected, there is almost no recovery period. What’s more, a single Thermage treatment may last up to ten years.
Depending on area being treated, a Thermage procedure can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. Prior to the procedure, your physician may administer local anesthesia and an oral discomfort medication.
Some patients report experiencing an alternating cooling and heating sensations as the Thermage device reaches their skin’s deeper layers. Your physician will usually monitor the heat intensity to maintain comfort levels.
Each RF pulse lasts only a few seconds. Collagen in the deeper skin layers (dermis) warms just enough to trigger substantial restructuring and regrowth. To prevent damage, an integrated cooling system cools you skin’s surface. Following a Thermage treatment, you should make a habit of using a high-SPF sunscreen.
Thermage beats mini facelifts and other skin-tightening treatments. It delivers superior results without the risks and downtime associated with invasive procedures. And it lets you resume you normal activities immediately. Though you may see results right away, they tend to appear gradually in the two to six months following a treatment. But they can last years, depending on your skin condition and the natural aging process.
A revolutionary treatment for mature skin, Thermage is also customizable. Though it works wonders practically anywhere on your body, it’s especially effective on your face, eyes, and body.
YOUR EYES: No matter your age, hooding, fine lines, and furrowed brows can give you an unrested look. Thermage reduces these signs, refreshing and revivifying you.
YOUR FACE: Thermage smooths facial lines and wrinkles by restructuring collagen, which promotes your skin’s overall health.
YOUR BODY: A noninvasive way of smoothing skin, Thermage transforms your body and temporarily improves the appearance of cellulite.
After only one Thermage treatment you’ll likely see dramatically tighter, firmer, and smoother skin. It’s the first and only system to receive FDA clearance for noninvasive, energy-based eyelid treatments.
In clinical trials, Thermage recipients saw significant improvement in face and neck laxity. Recently published studies have shown that improvements continue for at least six months after a single treatment. Other studies have shown that thermal collagen changes can last several years.
