Sagging, drooping skin can be hard to accept, as eyes begin to look more tired, and lines along the mouth and nose add years to the face. Many people seek solutions for turning back the clock when it comes to their appearance, and cosmetic procedures are on the rise for creating a more youthful look. At the Skin and Veins Center, Dr. Seiger offers a procedure called Thermage to treating sagging, tired skin.
The Thermage Procedure
A non-surgical procedure called “Thermage” is used to treat sagging skin around the jawline, eyelids, backs of the hands, and even the neck and chest. Using a combination of radiofrequency energy and heat to penetrate through layers of the skin and promote new collagen growth at the source, before and after Thermage results are often impressive.
Gentle heating tightens the collagen beneath the skin that is already in place while simultaneously producing new collagen. This new collagen production alleviates wrinkles, lifts cheeks, fills out drooping brows and creates an overall tightening of the skin.
Patients can expect to experience a heating sensation each time Thermage is applied to the skin. As the Thermage device heats the skin, a dual cooling spray is applied directly after the heat application to keep the patient as comfortable as possible. Treatment sessions take around one to two hours tops though it depends on the size of the area being treated.
Results of Thermage
Results with Thermage will vary depending on the patient and their present skin condition, age and number of sessions. The results typically last for at least two years with many people enjoying the benefits from Thermage for even longer!
Thermage doesn’t require patients to take any downtime to heal as they are able to return to their day to day activities directly following treatment. Some redness is typical after a Thermage treatment, but it usually disappears within a few hours. Some patients may experience slight swelling that will disappear within a couple of days.
