About the Treatment

What is it?

This non-surgical treatment uses radiofrequency energy to heat the collagen in the deeper layers of the skin without damage to the outer surface of the skin. Your skin is improved in 2 ways: first, existing collagen is tightened. Second, collagen production is renewed to further increase firmness over time. The result is a comprehensive, deep improvement that goes beyond the surface.

Who is a good candidate? Who is NOT a candidate?

If you're a healthy adult with sagging skin on your face or body, you may qualify for this skin tightening method. However, an initial consultation is necessary before undergoing the procedure to assess your suitability.

What should I expect during a Thermage treatment?

You will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. Throughout the procedure, your provider will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. Patients may feel a mild or moderate pain during the treatment. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.

When will you start seeing results?

Most patients can see and feel Thermage results very soon after treatment – in as little as one day. Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen.

What are the benefits of Thermage?

It gives targeted results. With Thermage, your provider can treat problem areas precisely, ensuring better and more defined results. It’s non-invasive making it safer and less painful than surgical cosmetic treatments such as facelifts. Thermage works on all skin types and colors. In addition to this, the cosmetic treatment can be used in many parts of the face and body.

How long is recovery? What does it look like? (Bruising, swelling, etc.)

There is no downtime. Shortly after the treatment, patients can return to their normal daily routine.

How often do you have to follow up/maintenance?

This effective skin tightening approach can yield your desired results after just one treatment session. However, for long-lasting outcomes, occasional follow-up sessions may be recommended to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.
