REDUCE THE VISIBLE SIGNS OF AGING IN MINUTES
s we get older, there are many visible signs of aging that, despite our best efforts, will catch up to us. One of these is the slowing of collagen and elastin production which leads to loose, sagging or crepey skin. When the years go by and the clock moves forward, collagen and elastin production slows down. These two proteins are responsible for keeping our skin firm and resilient. Along with aging, the production of these important proteins is affected by UV exposure, environmental pollutants, poor nutrition and excess alcohol consumption. It can be frustrating when you look in the mirror and see once-firm skin now sagging and giving you an aging appearance. Thermage® is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that can treat loose skin and wrinkles on the body, face and around the eyes.
How does it work?
The Thermage® skin tightening treatment uses radiofrequency technology to heat the collagen-rich layers of your skin below the surface. When this heat is applied, it causes the collagen to contract and encourages new collagen to start growing. This helps create smoother skin after just one treatment, with results that will continue to improve.
How long will results last?
Most patients experience measurable results in the two to six months following a single treatment; these results can last 1–2 years depending on the condition of your skin and unique aging process.
Does it hurt?
The Thermage® system incorporates vibration on the face and body which has been shown to provide patient comfort. You will feel a brief heating sensation when the device’s tip touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect the skin and minimize discomfort.
What are the side effects?
Some patients have temporary redness or minor swelling after the treatment which usually subsides within 24 hours.
