Over one million Thermage® treatments have been carried out in the last ten years, and this amazing procedure is only getting more popular in Chelmsford, MA and elsewhere. Unlike invasive cosmetic treatments, this non-surgical skin tightening treatment allows our team to restore your natural beauty without making incisions. This technology utilizes the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to trigger your body’s natural healing process. It is the perfect solution for many different blemishes, including loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and deeper folds.
Understanding Your Skin
Our skin is one of the most complex organs that we have, and it is actually made up of three distinct layers. The top of the skin is known as the epidermis, and it is responsible for protecting us against environmental damage. Just below the epidermis is a strip of collagen and elastin fibers called the dermis. The final layer is the subcutaneous fat that makes our skin look firm, smooth, and toned.
Over the years, the collagen and elastin that is found in the dermis layer of your skin will slowly fall apart, and your body won’t be able to replace those proteins quickly enough. That generally results in cosmetic blemishes like loose skin and wrinkles. Your body might also begin to metabolize some of the subcutaneous fat under your skin, giving you a sunken or hollow look. The goal of Thermage® skin tightening at our office in Chelmsford, MA is to improve the appearance of your skin by stimulating the production of collagen and drawing moisture into the underlying fat.
How It Works
We now know that radiofrequency energy can be used to trigger certain processes in the human body. When the RF waves are set to a certain frequency, your body will respond as if your skin is getting attacked. Even though no damage is done to the soft tissue, the area will be flooded with collagen and elastin. Once in place, those proteins will draw moisture into the fat and other soft tissue. Studies have shown us that this skin tightening technology can minimize the appearance of many different cosmetic issues, including loose skin and other common signs of aging.
