Why is Thermage so popular? Thermage skin tightening is an FDA approved radio frequency device used to promote collagen stimulation deep in the skin.
The radio frequency delivers heat deep in the dermis to gently break down or wound small areas. As these wounded areas heal, studies show that more COLLAGEN is seen in the healed areas. This collagenation takes about 4-6 months.
In some patients, Thermage results in significantly firmer skin. In others, the skin is subtly firmer. In all patients there is MORE collagen, thus probably slowing DOWN the appearance of aging, sagging skin.
The Thermage skin tightening takes only about 60-90 minutes, and does hurt. There is NO downtime!!
For patients who are NOT ready for a facelift, Thermage is a great first step.
What areas can be treated with Thermage? Face, neck, arms, tummy, legs. Anywhere on the body that suffers from collagen loss and appears loose or sagging!
Thermage even has a specialized treatment tip for the EYELIDS!!
Thermage combined with Medical Microneedling or Rejuvapen is the ultimate combo! This stimulates collagem deep + superficially.
At Gilbert Perfect Skin, we have been treating with Thermage for almost 10 years!!
