Thermage is a proven radiofrequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. Benefits include the smoothing of wrinkly, uneven or saggy skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the body.
Thermage radiofrequency energy works with the body by remodeling the collagen in order to reduce stretch marks.
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.
Patient 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 stretch marks reduced.
