Using non-invasive techniques in radiofrequency therapy, Thermage helps patients achieve greater definition in the face, eyes and multiple areas of the body.
How This Treatment Can Help You
EYES: Thermage can smooth out fine lines and hooding around the eyes, treating both the lower and upper eyelids to give your skin a well-rested look.
FACE: Thermage tightens sagging skin, loose jowls, wrinkles, and eliminates lines.
BODY: Thermage can also be used as a method for treating skin on the body, smoothing skin that has started to sag or has become uneven, as well as evening out dimples and bulges.
How It Works
We utilize the latest Thermage CPT technology which uses a vibrating tip to heat and cool with each pulse of radiofrequency to allow for greater patient comfort during treatment. Thermage utilizes radiofrequency energy which heats the targeted areas, remodeling the skin’s collagen as it penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue. As the treatment winds down, the vibration ceases and a final delivery of cryogen is given to cool down the outermost layers of skin (known as the epidermis).
A Thermage treatment typically last about forty-five minutes for regions around
the eyes. For larger area treatments sessions can last about an hour and a half. Results can often be seen on the same day with continued results occurring for up to six months afterwards as your body’s collagen regenerates.
Most patients undergoing Thermage treatment have no recovery time or follow-up care, though their skin may be slightly red afterward. Thermage treatment should not interfere with regular activities.
