What is Thermage®?
As we age, the collagen that keeps our skin firm breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and loose skin on our face and body. Thermage® is a safe and effective radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening treatment that tones and tightens lax skin without surgery or downtime. The treatment restores and rejuvenates facial and body contours for an overall younger-looking appearance by harnessing your skin’s own regenerative power.
How does Thermage® work?
Using proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT), Thermage uses RF energy to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin. The applied heat causes existing collagen fibers to contract and encourages the growth of new, healthy collagen in the treated areas. Over the months following treatment, skin naturally firms and tightens.
During the short treatment sessions (30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated), you’ll feel a brief heating sensation as the handpiece touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation that helps protect your skin and minimize any discomfort. Oral analgesics may also be administered for added patient comfort.
Recovery & Results
There is no downtime associated with Thermage treatments, and most patients can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Some patients may experience mild redness, tenderness or swelling, but this should resolve quickly.
Thermage delivers results after just one treatment. An immediate collagen contraction can give an instant lifted appearance, while measurable results—including firmer, tighter skin, and redefined face and body contours—will appear gradually in the 2-6 months following treatment and can last for 1-2 years. Repeat treatments may be recommended every 18 months to maintain results.
