Loose and wrinkled skin does not need to be an unavoidable part of growing older. For many patients, these cosmetic issues prematurely age their appearance and make them self-conscious about the state of their skin. Luckily, those problems might be a thing of the past with the revolutionary new treatment known as Thermage®.
Approved by the FDA in 2002, this procedure provides many of the same benefits as traditional implants and lifts without the drawn-out and uncomfortable recovery time. With over 1 million treatments performed in the last 14 years, it might be time for you to take a fresh look at this safe and effective procedure.
Protecting Your Skin
Shielding your skin with sunscreen and hats is extremely important to your health, but it might not protect you from cosmetic issues for the rest of your life. There will come a point when your body breaks down collagen faster than you produce it, and this creates problems such as loose skin, discoloration and even cellulite.
When combined with a slower metabolism and extra pockets of fat, the results can be devastating. Unfortunately, there are no over-the-counter creams or moisturizers that will eradicate these blemishes. For long-term results, you will need to consider professional treatments, such as Thermage®.
Radiofrequency technology has been used in the field of medicine for over 75 years, but it was not until recently that we discovered it can alter one’s appearance. Radio pulses have the ability to penetrate deep into the skin without damaging the outer layers. Over a short period of time, these pulses will stimulate the production of collagen and other vital proteins.
Your natural proteins do most of the work as your skin becomes tighter and fine lines disappear. Thermage® is so gentle that it can be used practically anywhere on the body, including the eyes, forehead, jowls, stomach, neck, hands and thighs.
What Does Thermage® Feel Like?
Your Thermage® appointment may take anywhere from 45 to 90 minutes depending on the size of the area you would like to have treated. Most patients feel nothing more than a warm tingling feeling with little or no discomfort. After the session is over, there is no downtime and you can head right back to work.
The Months Following Your Thermage® Session
Altering the state of your skin and promoting the production of collagen can take some time, and this is why most people don’t notice immediate changes. The final results typically become apparent within three months and generally last for up to 18 months. Thermage® is completely non-invasive.
