Aging skin affects all areas of your life. Besides your looks, it can have an influence on the way you feel about yourself and your confidence level. Fortunately, there are ways to address aging skin. One of the most effective non-surgical methods is Thermage. Thermage is a skin treatment that uses radiofrequency to address sagging and loose skin, leading to tighter, firmer, sleeker looking skin with an overall more youthful appearance. Just one treatment, with a short downtime, provides dramatic results that are long-lasting.
Areas of Treatment
Thermage can be utilized to treat loose skin in some areas. Used on the upper and lower eyelids, Thermage produces a more rested and youthful look. Thermage is used on the face, jaw and neck to tighten loose skin and remodel collagen. It can even be used on areas of the body such as those prone to cellulite.
Thermage is perfect for people wishing to have younger, firmer, glowing skin but who don’t want to undergo surgery. Also, if you’re looking for real results, without an extremely drastically different look, Thermage is a great option. Benefits include:
- Single treatment offering results
- Non-invasive, clinically proven safe
- Minimal downtime
- Improvement not available with lotions or potions
- Targeted treatment for all areas of the body
What to Expect
The Thermage radiofrequency technology goes below the skin’s surface to address some imperfections caused by environmental stressors and age. Thermage radiofrequency energy remodels the collagen of your skin to provide smooth, youthful results. The ability to target specific areas allow you to receive focused and effective results.
Treatment for the eyes or face typically last about 45 minutes while 90 minutes can be expected for areas on the body. One treatment is all you need to experience results. In fact, you’ll see noticeable results in as little as one day. Your body will regenerate collagen over time, making it possible to notice improved results and contouring over the six months following the procedure. Results can last for years.
You can expect to feel sensations of both cooling and heating during each pulse. You will be able to provide feedback regarding your comfort level during the procedure, and adjustments will be made in a way that balances with your comfort while maximizing results. Immediately following treatment, you may experience skin redness, but you can resume all of your normal activities. There is normally no expected recovery period after your procedure.
