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?
If your skin isn't as firm and tight as you would like, you're a great candidate for Thermage.
What kind of conditions does it treat?
Thermage FLX treats wrinkles and loose skin on the face, around the eyes and on the body.
What to 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.
