Thermage Skin Tightening

There is an inherent beauty to aging that brings with it grace, wisdom and experience and who among us doesn’t want those things? There are also the wrinkles, lines and sagging skin that come with the process due to the loss of collagen. Nobody is happy about that. But what can we do?

Plastic surgery isn’t always the go-to answer for everyone, and not just because of the discomfort, cost and recovery time. Plus, we’re often not in need of such an invasive procedure, just yet. Still, we find ourselves looking in the mirror on occasion, thinking, “Isn’t there something to tighten and shape this skin, soften the wrinkles and lines and maybe, just maybe, renew my confidence?” There is, and its name, is Thermage.

Thermage is a unique procedure that employs radiofrequency (RF) technology to tighten and contour the skin. Right now, Thermage is #1 in patient demand, in part, because it is a non-invasive treatment that can be done in approximately one hour with no recovery time. Your friends and co-workers (even your family) will wonder how you found the time to “go on vacation” and ask how it is that you look so rested and rejuvenated.

The first signs of aging are usually seen in the face, neck and hands due to a loss of collagen. Thermage works to stimulate your body’s own natural stores of collagen, the very thing responsible for keeping skin youthful looking. Your skin is made up of three distinct layers; the epidermis (or outer layer); dermis (beneath the surface); and the subcutaneous tissue (the “fat layer” with its web of collagen fibers) and Thermage works to heat these layers, tightening existing collagen and helping the body to form new collagen. Unlike other methods available, Thermage renews collagen in the dermis and the subcutaneous layer. No surgery, no injections and no downtime.

Thermage has been approved by the FDA and is considered by Dermatologists to be the safest and most effective non-invasive method of tightening and contouring the skin. Thermage can be used to treat the entire face or specific parts of the body and works on all skin colors and types. Currently, more than 500,000 Thermage treatments are performed in 80 countries. Because of its reputation, you can feel confident, knowing that compared to other treatments, Thermage has the longest history of safety and effectiveness.

While other laser procedures require four or more sessions and repeat visits, patients who opt for the Thermage treatment have just one office visit. Some patients get an immediate response, but everyone gets improvement as the body responds to its own natural collagen rebuilding process during the following two to six months. Doctors and patients have also reported that the results can last years.

That magic wand we’ve all been looking for to take care of crow’s feet, tired looking eyes, that excess flap of skin that shows up on the upper eyelid and that crepe-y tissue paper appearance of the skin in that area? Thermage has the first only FDA clearance for non-invasive eyelid treatments, smoothing the skin on the eyelids, reducing under eye.

sagging and giving you brighter looking eyes that appear lifted and less tired. Your hands can receive the same treatment, resulting in the thicker, smoother skin of your younger years. In addition to the long-lasting results of smoother skin on your face, hands and neck, Thermage can also treat other parts of the body, such as the tummy, arms, thighs and buttocks.

Thanks to Thermage, you can have it all: wisdom, grace, experience AND younger, smoother looking skin. And everybody… is happy about that.
