Thermage® is an FDA-approved cosmetic procedure that obliterates age-related blemishes by stimulating your skin’s healing process. This treatment utilizes pulses of radiofrequency (RF) energy to tone and rejuvenate all three layers of your skin. In addition to being an extremely effective treatment, it is also completely non-surgical.
The Layers of Your Skin
Before taking a closer look at the technology behind Thermage®, you should first understand the basic structure of your skin. Your skin is made up of three primary layers, including the outer epidermis, the collagen-rich dermis, and the underlying subcutaneous fat. The collagen fibers that are found in those three layers keep your skin healthy while you are younger. Unfortunately, that protein is going to break down as you grow older, and that can lead to a long list of cosmetic blemishes, including fine lines, wrinkles, and blotchy skin.
Stimulating Collagen Growth
Many traditional cosmetic operations tone your skin by physically pulling it tighter, but those procedures aren’t right for everyone. Patients who want to enjoy beautiful skin for many years to come need to undergo a treatment that triggers their body’s healing process and rebuilds their supply of collagen. The goal of Thermage® is to stimulate the production of key proteins without damaging any of the nearby soft tissue. As the RF waves penetrate deep into the patient’s skin, all three layers will be flooded with rejuvenating proteins.
Even popular cosmetic operations can sometimes be ineffective, and that is one of the reasons why many patients are now turning to non-surgical procedures such as Thermage®. This technology is quick and completely non-invasive. The vast majority of our patients experience nothing more than minor redness and sensitivity for a few hours after the procedure.
Thermage® is a great treatment option for healthy adults who would like to quickly and safely improve their appearance by eradicating age-related blemishes. Patients who aren’t interested in surgical treatments like facelifts and chin implants might benefit from a non-surgical option such as Thermage®.
