You can begin to take control of the way your skin starts to age with Thermage, a radiofrequency treatment that is designed to improve the appearance of sagging and loose skin. Thermage is a non-invasive technique that can be customized to the patient and help you look and feel younger. If you are unfamiliar with this incredible technique, here is what you should know:
How Thermage Works
Thermage uses state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology to rotate between a heating and cooling sensation that can be controlled throughout the treatment. Our ThermaCool handheld device allows our technicians to control the pulses, making sure each patient is comfortable. The radiofrequency pulses heat up the treated areas to jumpstart collagen reproduction and help tighten the skin tissue. After the heating sensation, a delivery of cryogen is given that will cool the outer layer of the skin. Our treatments are non-invasive, making sure our patients are virtually pain-free during each treatment.
Areas that Can Be Treated with Thermage
Thermage can be used to treat a variety of areas, including around the eyes, face, and all over the body. Thermage treatments on the face and around the eyes are one of our most popular options due to this being where sagging skin typically occurs. Sagging skin can also occur around other areas of the body, and these spots can easily be treated.
How Long a Thermage Treatment Lasts
Our cosmetic technicians typically complete Thermage treatments in as little as 45 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. Larger areas can take up to an hour and a half.
Recovery Time with Thermage
When you choose Thermage, you are choosing a skin tightening treatment that has no recovery time. Some patients may experience slight redness in the treatment area, but this will subside within a few days and not require any follow-up care. You can return to your daily activities immediately following the procedure.
Good Candidates for Thermage
In addition to Thermage not requiring any recovery time, it is also ideal for all skin types. Anyone who is experience sagging skin, loose skin, or wrinkles can benefit from Thermage.
