It’s no secret that collagen production slows significantly and begins to break down with age. As a result, individuals notice a loss of skin elasticity, along with fine lines and wrinkles. Yet, not everyone is ready or willing to go under the knife. Fortunately, the Thermage system has the ability to smooth, tighten and contour skin with the power of radiofrequency therapy. In a matter of minutes, visible signs of aging are addressed in a non-surgical manner, with no injections and no needles.
Perhaps you’re wondering how the Thermage system works. In essence, the collagen-rich layers and strands of the skin are heated through the RF technology. This process causes the collagen to contract and start growing. Best of all, the collagen continues to produce over time, with measurable results in the months following a single treatment.
Benefits of a Facelift – Minus the Downtime and Expense
When patients want the benefits of a facelift, without the extensive downtime and expense, Thermage treatment is an ideal solution. Remarkably, only one treatment session is needed for noticeable results (though patients might elect to have an additional treatment for superior results). In turn, as skin becomes smoother and wrinkles are less apparent, results last 1-2 years for many individuals.
Aside from the results, the procedure itself is comfortable, with most patients describing a warm sensation as the device moves across the skin. Following the treatment, which last from 60-90 minutes depending on the area being treated, patients might notice slight redness and swelling that subsides after 24 hours. Even so, patients are free to return to their normal activities with no restrictions.
