Many people wish to regain some of the tight skin of their youth. In the past, this meant extensive surgeries. Now, there is Thermage®, an exciting, non-surgical option to help tighten the skin and regain a youthful-looking physique. This is an FDA-approved procedure that uses radiofrequency energy. It is a safe and effective method for turning back the clock on the appearance of your skin.
How Does Thermage® Work?
The dermis, which is the layer underneath the surface of your skin, is heated by Thermage®. This will stimulate neocollagenesis, a process that will make your body produce new collagen. Since collagen is the building block of the skin, this will result in you have firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin.
This is a great treatment option for almost any area of the body. Some of the most popular areas are:
During treatment, the handpiece is passed over the area. This handpiece is delivering the radiofrequency that makes this procedure effective. You feel a cooling, then a brief heating, then another round of cooling. This procedure is meant to be gentle, and no anesthesia is required to have it done.
The length of the treatment will depend on the size of the area being treated. The location and condition of the area will also impact how long the treatment lasts. Many patients see their desired results after just one session of Thermage®.
Results with Thermage®
Some improvement will be immediately obvious after having this treatment. It may take multiple months to see your full results. These improvements can last longer than a year. How long your skin will appear more youthful depends on your skin, habits, and the natural aging process.
