Are you seeing the signs of aging? You know the ones: the loose and sagging skin, or a few wrinkles here and there that may make you look older than you feel. At the Skin and Vein Center, we specialize in a revolutionary procedure that can help erase the appearance of those years from your face. If you are suffering from loose, sagging skin around your face, it’s time you learned about Thermage laser treatments!
Benefits of Thermage
Thermage has several benefits, including five main reasons you may want to consider undergoing this procedure. These include:
- Thermage has been clinically proven to contour, tighten, and rejuvenate the facial area.
- It uses an FDA-cleared ThermaCool system that uses a form of capacitive radiofrequency to tighten and stimulate existing collagen.
- Immediate results will be seen, while improvements will continue for up to six months.
- It is considered effective and safe, with few side effects.
- Thermage can be used on all skin types and skin tones.
The Thermage Procedure
The overall procedure can take between 20 minutes to up to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. The procedure uses the ThermaCool device. This handheld device briefly touches the skin while delivering the energy below the skin to the underlying tissue to cause an immediate tightening effect. You may feel a heating sensation during the application of the CRF energy. The skin of the treatment area will be cooled before, during, and after the energy is applied.
As we stated, near immediate results will be seen, with improvements to follow. In some cases, additional treatments may be needed to achieve full results. This, of course, depends upon the desired results and will vary from individual to individual. There is little to no downtime after the procedure, so you can return to your regular routine almost immediately.
Few Side Effects
Thermage is a very safe procedure, with few side effects. There have been some reports of swelling, bumps, blister, or redness. These side effects have disappeared in just a few days.
