Thermage® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that offers you a youthful appearance once again. If you are starting to see signs of aging when you look in the mirror, you may begin to think about ways to reverse those signs. Thermage® treatments utilize radiofrequency energy to achieve a younger appearance in a way that is both safe and effective.
Lines and wrinkles are among the things that make you start to look older with the passage of time. They develop when the collagen level in the skin begins to decline. Collagen is a protein that the skin makes in order to help keep it full, firm and tight. When you start to age, the production of it begins to decline. Less collagen will lead to visible signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and even sagging of the skin.
Many people resort to surgical procedures to tighten their skin. Facelifts are the most well-known. Countless other individuals, however, stay away from these surgeries due to the invasive nature of them. They also require a significant recovery period and must be done in a hospital or surgical setting. Others avoid the surgery because of the risks involved. There is good news available to those who prefer to avoid a surgical procedure but still want to look younger. Thermage® is an excellent choice.
Rather than physically tightening the skin the way surgical procedures do, Thermage® basically stimulates the skin to tighten itself. Therefore, it does away with the risks associated with surgery. Since the problem of aging began with a reduction in the amount of collagen contained in the skin, Thermage® works by causing the level of the substance to return to the higher amounts that were present during youth. Increasing the collagen will then cause the skin to become tight once again. As a result, the wrinkles and sagging will go away.
After the treatment, the collagen growth process will begin. It is a gradual process that will take multiple months to complete. During this time, the skin will start to become tighter until it reaches its peak level.
Thermage® uses radiofrequency energy to get the job done. The energy is emitted from the equipment that is passed across the skin above the areas to be treated. This gently warms the skin tissue that is beneath the surface. It is designed to do so because that is where the collagen is located. The warmth created by the radiofrequency energy is what causes the collagen growth process to begin.
