No one is immune to the effects of time on the appearance. Good genes and years of self-care definitely help, but we all begin to see sagging skin with fine lines and uneven texture. With advances in the world of cosmetic procedures, we no longer have to accept aging gracefully. If you’ve been hoping for a non-invasive way to look younger, you may be interested in Thermage®.

This aesthetic innovation uses radiofrequency waves to provide patients with a sleeker and more contoured appearance to the skin by tightening loose skin. In just one treatment and hardly any downtime, you can look refreshed and more youthful. So if you want to feel more confident in your looks, then it is a good idea to learn about how you can tighten your skin non-surgically with Thermage®.

About Thermage®

Thermage® has been around for more than ten years and has been performed on more than a million patients. So you can feel confident that it’s been shown to be an effective treatment for wrinkles and sagging skin on various parts of the body. Both men and women can undergo the procedure if they wish to firm up their skin and return to a more youthful appearance.

It’s a great option for those who aren’t interested in undergoing the complexities of a surgical procedure with extended downtime and don’t want to dramatically alter their looks. Thermage® is likely to fit conveniently into your current lifestyle and routine. You can expect to see results with only one treatment and to achieve more noticeable results than any cream or topical product can provide.

How It Works

The radiofrequency energy of Thermage® boosts the body’s healing process to produce a cycle of heating and cooling that reaches deep within the skin to transform tissue and remodel the collagen while maintaining your comfort. The patented Comfort Pulse Technology can be attributed for ensuring patient comfort with its gentle vibrations that are alternated with a unique cooling process.

What to Expect

A typical treatment session for the facial area is about 45 minutes and double that, 90 minutes, for larger parts of the body. There is no recovery protocol to follow, and you may immediately resume your regular routine.

Thermage® is useful for smoothing and tightening crepey skin around the eyes, lifting the forehead, contouring the jawline and toning loose skin on areas of the body, such as the abdomen and the thighs, among other uses. You may see results soon after treatment, and one treatment is likely all you will require. However, optimal results are seen gradually over a four to six-month period while the collagen beneath the treatment area is regenerated.
