Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate your body’s own collagen to contract resulting in firmer, tighter skin. During the procedure, a hand-piece is applied to the skin surface. An individual will feel vary degrees of heat during treatment. The top layer of skin is cooled while the heat is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. Thermage treatments can take one hour or longer depending on the area treated.
There is no downtime after Thermage. You will be able to resume your normal activities and skin care products. Makeup can be applied immediately. Results improve over 6 months after treatment with many individuals seeing results much sooner and sometimes immediately after Thermage. Over the next 6 months, your skin will begin to produce more collagen and tighten existing collagen, producing a younger, more vibrant appearance.
Unlike laser resurfacing, Thermage does not improve deep lines and wrinkles. Our staff at Nouveau Medispa will be able to analyze your skin care concerns and see if Thermage if the right choice to meet your expectations.
Unlike Intense Pulsed Light andlaser resurfacing, Thermage can be used on darker skin types as works just as well as light skin types.
Thermage is best suited for those who are concerned about loose skin. It does not tighten muscle or substitute for a face lift. If you have heavy jowling or a very loose “turkey neck”, you are unlikely to see a dramatic result with Thermage or you may require several treatments to obtain the results you are looking for. If you have a fat deposit under the area to be treated, you may consider liposuction of that area apart from your Thermage procedure as Thermage does not remove unwanted fat deposits.
