Thermage is a non-invasive treatment that can tighten and smooth skin on the face and body. It does not require incisions or injections. Thermage works by stimulating existing collagen in the face and/or body to create the growth of new collagen, creating naturally younger looking skin.
Although Thermage will not tighten skin as much as a surgical procedure such as a facelift, it will reduce mild to moderate skin laxity in patients who do not need more dramatic surgical results.
The Thermage Procedure
Thermage treatments heat the skin using radiofrequency (CRF) technology that penetrates three layers of skin: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutaneous. There is no adverse impact on the surface skin layers. The heat generates a tightening effect, remolding the existing collagen and stimulating the growth of new collagen. Collagen is essential in maintaining the skin’s elasticity.
Results are immediately visible and may continue to improve up to six months following a single treatment.
