The Thermage procedure is a non-invasive treatment that delivers tighter skin, renewed facial contours and healthier collagen after a single treatment.
The Thermage procedure employs a patented radiofrequency (RF) technology called ThermaCool. It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smoothen out wrinkles and define facial contours. This non-surgical procedure is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities. Unlike lasers, the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin types. This FDA-approved device works well for the treatment of facial wrinkles, rhytids, as well as tightening and contouring of the body.
What does the Thermage procedure feel like?
With each touch of the ThermaTip device, you will experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your skin and underlying tissue. This deep heating sensation is an indicator that the collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening. The physician controls the amount of energy delivered to balance procedural comfort with maximum results. The ThermaTip device is cooled before, during, and after heating to protect your skin and make the treatment more comfortable.
How many treatments will I need?
Unlike many laser procedures that require four or more sessions, a single Thermage treatment has produced results in the majority of patients. Your physician will determine the course of treatment that is for you. Some patients who want further tightening may repeat the treatment at least 6 months after the first session was done. With good maintenance, the results of a single session may last for 2 years or more.
