Thermage – Face and Body
The signs of aging affect the way we feel about ourselves. As the years go by, our once-smooth skin loses it elasticity, and wrinkles and lines begin to cover our faces and body. The sagging skin makes us feel old and weary. A permanent solution to restoring your appearance is surgery, but this is expensive and requires a substantial recovery period. To tighten your skin, reduce wrinkles, and alleviate signs of aging with surgery, consider Thermage.
What Is Thermage?
Thermage is a form of heat therapy for the deeper layers of the skin on the face and body. It is a proven technique that delivers consistent and effective results. Thermage can be used to target problems such as jowls, sagging skin, and wrinkles.
Thermage can be used to reduce signs of aging from all over the body. For example, Thermage treatments can be used to smooth out skin on the stomach, legs, arms, and buttocks. It can be used to soften the wrinkles that appear on the knees. It can also be used to reduce stubborn cellulite on the thighs.
This treatment option can also be used after liposuction to tighten sagging skin folds that occur due to the sudden weight loss.
The Benefits of Thermage
Thermage is an ideal treatment for any individual who is looking to reduce signs of aging and restore their youthful looks without undergoing surgery. It is painless and non-invasive. It also only requires a short recovery period.
Thermage treatments are effective for both men and women. Individuals of all skin colors and types can use Thermage to tighten their skin. They also receive the added benefit of collagen simulation, as Thermage treatments encourage the growth of collagen protein in the skin tissues.
Thermage uses radio frequency energy to target all three layers of the skin tissues. A ThermaTip applicator uniformly applies heat energy to the targeted areas. You will alternately feel a cooling sensation followed by a heating sensation. The heat energy stimulates collagen production in the skin and restores the wrinkled, sagging skin to its former structure.
Thermage treatments last for approximately an hour. The duration of the treatment only increases in cases of high level treatment patterns where the patient is given anesthetics.
The result of the treatment is felt immediately. During the next few weeks, the results will improve as collagen continues to grow at an enhanced rate. The results of Thermage treatments can last for around two years.
Potential Side Effects
Any side effects experienced after Thermage treatments are typically mild in nature. Patients may experience temporary bumps, blisters, and redness in the treated areas. In rare cases, less than 1%, patients suffer from surface irregularities. Most of these side effects disappear within approximately a week.
Thermage is not a recommended treatment for patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Once you have finished breastfeeding, you can use Thermage treatments to get rid of the stretch marks and sagging skin that follow pregnancy.
