The Thermage system® is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that can smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. Treatments can be adjusted to fit the patient’s particular needs and requires minimal downtime. This makes Thermage a great option for patients who have busy lifestyles and do not have a lot of time to spare for a long recovery period.
How does it work?
In order to effectively treat wrinkles, Thermage works from within the skin layers, transforming it from below its surface to achieve a naturally subtle effect that addresses imperfections brought about by aging or other environmental factors. The radiofrequency used in this technique is able to smooth out wrinkles, provide definition to facial features and tone bulges or dimpling on various areas of the face and body. Additionally, radiofrequency is a type of energy that works in coordination with the body to remodel the patient’s collagen and improve it to make the skin smoother and younger looking.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
One quick treatment (30 to 90 minutes depending on the treatment area) can deliver outstanding results. Patients will generally only need one Thermage treatment to see the results and feel the difference. After this initial treatment, the regenerated collagen will continue to manifest improvements in the skin and the body contours for us up to six months. And, as the body produces its new collagen matrix, the effects can even last for years moving forward.
