As we age, phrases like “turkey neck”, loose jowls, sagging skin and “what happened to my jawline?” creep in. Thermage is a proven, unique radiofrequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, wrinkles, and remodels collagen for the overall health of the skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel.
Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to create a uniform heating effect in the deep dermis. This gentle heating tightens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen. It reduces wrinkles and achieves brow lifting, cheek lifting, and jaw line lifting. The skin tissue lifting and tightening is caused by immediate collagen contraction followed by gradual collagen tightening. The result is a more youthful appearance to lax and sagging skin.
A specially designed treatment tip is placed against the skin in targeted areas. Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment areas and remodeling the collagen.
You may return to your normal activities immediately after treatment, as there is no down time. Makeup can be applied immediately after the treatment session. Minimal redness is seen in some patients after treatment, but it generally disappears within several hours. Occasionally mild swelling is noticed after the treatment but disappears in two or three days.
Most patients can see the results after a month. Continued improvements can happen for up to six months as body regenerates collagen. The collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect, hence wrinkles, sagginess reduced.
