Thermage for Skin Tightening


Thermage for Skin Tightening Thermage® is a non-invasive treatment that tightens skin, restores facial contours, and builds healthier collagen; it has often been referred to as the non-surgical facelift.  Thermage is not a laser or light based system.  Thermage treatments use a powerful radio frequency (RF) technology named ThermaCoolTM.  RF energy heats the skin and naturally provides collagen to your epidermal surface. This stimulation occurs over the next 4 months after your first Thermage procedure, and slowly tightens and firms your skin.  The result is a rejuvenated face with more youthful contours.  Thermage facelift procedures are safe for tightening skin under your chin, neck, or jaw line, lifting your upper eyelids or the wrinkles below, and correcting acne scarring. 

The average Thermage procedure can be finished in less than an hour.  Many laser treatments take 3 or 4 sessions to complete what Thermage can do in one.  As the ThermaCool handset is placed on your body, you will experience a brief heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your skin.  This deep heating is how you know that your collagen is reaching the right temperature for tightening.  The results will last well after your treatment and Thermage costs are competitive with other non-surgical facelift treatments.
