Do you want to reverse the signs of aging with a safe and non-invasive treatment? If so, you should consider Thermage. It is a safe way to smooth, tighten, and contour your skin for a younger appearance. This treatment stimulates collagen production and naturally improves skin tone. The treatment can address a number of issues that include:
- Fine lines around the eyes
- Hooded eyelids that cause a tired appearance
- Sagging jowls
- Loose neck skin
- And more
The procedure is effective for all types of skin. The best candidates for the procedure include:
- Individuals who are not able to have a facelift
- Middle-aged individuals who have sagging skin on their neck and eyelids
- Individuals who have had a facelift and want to achieve further skin rejuvenation
- Individuals who have droopy cheeks or jowls
It is also important that individuals who want this treatment have a positive outlook about the results of the procedure and are in good overall health.
How Does It Work?
The treatment uses radio-frequency energy to treat all three layers of the skin. The gentle heating effect will tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production. This will reduce sagging skin and wrinkles. In most circumstances, the entire process takes about 45 minutes to complete. You will experience little to no downtime with Thermage, so you can resume your normal activities soon after the treatment. Although you may experience mild redness on the targeted area after the procedure, this typically disappears within a few hours. You can apply makeup after the procedure to cover any redness.
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice results that will continue as your body rebuilds collagen. For most individuals, significant tightening will continue for about two to six months. The treatment typically only takes one session for individuals to achieve their desired results. This is beneficial because other laser treatments may require at least 10 sessions for successful results.
Can Thermage Be Used with Other Procedures?
Many individuals choose to have this treatment administered in conjunction with other cosmetic procedures that include dermal fillers.
