What is Thermage?

Thermage is a non-invasive, FDA-approved procedure that utilizes innovative radiofrequency energy to contract, firm, and rejuvenate the skin. It heats the dermis (the underlying layer of skin) to trigger neocollagenesis, or renewed collagen growth. Collagen is a key protein in the human body that is responsible for supple, hydrated skin. With the aging process, collagen stores are diminished, necessitating a cosmetic intervention. By replenishing collagen, Thermage provides a more youthful, inviting glow and an enhanced self-image. Our model is the best-in-class, 5th generation device and is the latest iteration of Thermage currently available.

What Concerns Can Be Addressed with Thermage?

Thermage can be used in multiple areas, addressing concerns such as drooping jowls, sagging skin in the face and neck, and a general loss of definition. In addition, Thermage can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and creases around the eyes and can reverse a fatigued look in the brows.

How Does the Treatment Work?

While collagen is abundant in younger years, its production slowly grinds to a halt as the body ages, resulting in a loss of skin elasticity and the formation of jowls. Rather than addressing these concerns superficially, Thermage gets to the root of the problem by initiating the body’s wound-healing response of generating new collagen. The potent radiofrequency energy targets the deeper layers of tissue to produce a firmer, smoother complexion over time.

What Can I Expect From My Treatment?

During your one-hour Thermage session, the skin is first cleansed and then is covered with a layer of cool gel. A grid may be superimposed on the surface to guide the treatment. A small handpiece is used to administer the radiofrequency energy as short, quick pulses of heat. Most patients find the procedure to be relatively painless and comfortable.

Who Makes the Best Candidate?

Thermage is a good option for individuals who seek noticeable rejuvenation and skin-tightening results without invasive plastic surgery. If you want to rewind the clock on the aging process but don’t have time for a lengthy recovery period, Thermage may be an ideal choice.

In general, good Thermage candidates are:

  • Between 30 and 65
  • Struggling with skin laxity and sagging
  • Unhappy with the appearance of their brows, jawline, neck, or cheeks
  • Experiencing jowling in the lower face
  • Looking to increase the longevity of their facelift results
  • Mentally and physically healthy
  • Realistic in their expectations

Is There Any Downtime or Recovery?

Thermage is non-invasive and does not require any recovery. You’ll be able to immediately resume your normal schedule, returning to work, school, or other activities. Minor skin redness and swelling may occur for the first 24-48 hours but these symptoms do not usually interfere with your enjoyment of the day. You can use makeup to conceal any facial discoloration.

When Will I See Results?

Thermage relies on the regeneration of collagen to replenish youthfulness and vitality in the skin. Therefore, it takes time to see your full results. While most patients notice a small improvement in skin firmness and suppleness soon after their Thermage session, the final outcome will become apparent within 3-6 months.
