Thermage is a proven radiofrequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. It can help smoothen and tighten wrinkled, crepe skin. As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down, resulting in sagging skin. The stomach area, knees and arms can show signs of ageing over time and Thermage can treat these areas.
Thermage uses patented radiofrequency technology to safely heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen.
The Thermage procedure is very safe with almost no significant adverse effects.
Throughout the procedure, your physician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.
Most patients can see and feel Thermage results very soon after treatment – in as little as one day. Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Your body actually produces new collagen which is how the collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. The effects continue to improve for up to a year following a single treatment. The results can last for years depending on your skin condition and natural ageing process.
