Thermage is a safe and non-invasive technique that is used to tighten and tone the skin by inducing new collagen production. It is effective in the treatment of wrinkles and facial scars. It can also be used around the eyes, on the arms, legs, thighs, buttocks, stomach and hands.
How does it work?
Our skin has three layers: the upper layer called the epidermis, the dermis rich in collagen and the subcutaneous layer of fat and collagen fibers. Collagen is the protein that gives the skin its flexibility. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in wrinkles and slack. The Thermage procedure uses patented radiofrequency technology to heat the dermis and underlying tissue, which causes the collagen to contract; This process, while stimulating the production of new collagen, also helps reduce the deterioration of the current collagen. To minimize any discomfort for the patient, the outer layer or epidermis is kept cold to protect it. During treatment, patients feel warm with each pulse of energy followed by a feeling of cold. Your skin will look softer after a single Thermage treatment.
Some patients may experience temporary numbness or pink, slightly sensitive and inflamed skin.
