Thermage® is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can make aging skin look better. It has been gaining popularity since its introduction more than a decade ago. Furthermore, clinical studies have shown that Thermage can instantly smooth, contour and tighten the skin for a more youthful appearance with minimal risk.
What is the Thermage Treatment?
Thermage has been recognized as the gold standard in non-surgical skin tightening treatments. It works by employing radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production. This treatment restores the skin’s youthful appearance by replenishing deficient collagen in the dermis.
The thermal stimulation heats the skin’s collagen-rich layers, remodeling pre-existing collagen storage. It also signals the body to restore fresh collagen proteins, a vital component of the skin’s connective tissues. As a result, the skin rebounds healthier, firmer and tighter than before.
Some areas we can treat include your chin, the area under the chin, neck, nasolabial folds, around the eyes, cheeks, forehead, legs, lower buttocks and stomach. You will notice continually visible effects for up to six months after just one 30–60-minute treatment. Depending on your skin type, diet and lifestyle, these effects last one to two years.
Why Does Collagen Have an Impact on Skin Appearance?
Collagen is responsible for the skin’s elasticity and overall health. Unfortunately, many things can compromise collagen production, like smoking, sunlight, pollution, stress and aging. While avoiding those factors that deplete collagen stores helps, there comes a time when you need a way to boost your efforts. Thermage is one of those ways.
Additional Benefits of a Thermage Treatment
Minimal downtime. You can go about your day-to-day activities as usual after treatment; however, you may notice minor redness or swelling in the treated area.
Natural results. The skin is discreetly rejuvenated without being artificially altered. Thermage reactivates the body’s own collagen proteins without introducing external substances like fillers.
No injections. With Thermage, you will not have to worry about lasers, incisions or even needle pricks because none are necessary. Instead, radiofrequency energy from a handheld device goes into the skin to warm the deeper, collagen-rich layers while leaving the skin’s surface unaffected and comfortable.
