A clinically proven and non-invasive procedure, Thermage is a unique, deep-heating technology that stimulates and renews your own collagen. The result is tighter, smoother, more contoured skin.
Thermage does not involve any surgery or injections. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. The procedure is typically performed in a single session and there’s little to no downtime so you can quickly resume your normal routine.
Most patients can see and feel Thermage results in as little as one day. Continued tightening and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body forms new collagen that’s tighter and stronger. This natural response by the body accounts for results that can last for years.
The procedure is unique because it’s the only non-invasive method available that tightens and renews your skin’s collagen in all three layers. The exclusive Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s under layer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. Improvements typically become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment due to new collagen growth.
Thermage procedures can effectively and safely treat skin on most body parts, including the face, eyes, lips, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks. Thermage can also temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
On the face, Thermage can treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin (“turkey neck”), wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition in the lips.
Around the eyes, Thermage can treat bags, hooding, rough textured eyelids, wrinkles, fine lines and other contributors to tired looking eyes. Elsewhere on the body, Thermage is effective on wrinkled, sagging or bulging skin.
During the treatment, you will feel a brief, heat sensation each time Thermage delivers energy to the under layer of your skin. This indicates that your collagen is being stimulated and tightened. Thermage is a very safe procedure with generally mild side effects including redness, swelling, blisters, bumps and rare instances of surface irregularities.
