Thermage is a revolutionary non-surgical laser treatment for lifting and tightening skin. By utilising radio frequency to stimulate the body’s natural renewal process, Thermage contours the face, eyelids, back of the hands, the neck and the body. Thermage treatments are customised to your needs, and typically require little or no downtime.
IS THERMAGE RIGHT FOR ME?
The ideal candidate for skin tightening with Thermage is a person with mild laxity of skin who is not yet a facelift candidate. These patients could consider using Thermage every 3 -5 years to try to put off a more invasive procedure. Thermage should not be done in place of a facelift.
WHAT DOES A THERMAGE TREATMENT INVOLVE?
Thermage is a proven radiofrequency treatment that transforms skin. A Thermage treatment is not painful and requires no anaesthesia. Most patients feel only a brief sensation of heat. The treatment is fairly quick, taking up to an hour, depending on the target area(s). Benefits include the smoothing of wrinkly or uneven skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the face and body.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
You will notice the results of your Thermage treatment immediately. Although the full benefits of this stimulation of the body’s natural collagen renewal response takes 4 – 6 months. The process of producing new collagen will continue for a couple of years after treatment.
The skin will appear more youthful with a tighter and firmer texture. It will feel smooth and supple, with a radiant glow. Thermage does not require repeated sessions to maintain the texture and tone of the skin.
