FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT EXACTLY IS THERMAGE SKIN TIGHTENING?
Thermage is a tried-and-true radio-frequency skin tightening treatment that transforms skin by addressing a variety of complexion imperfections caused by age and environmental factors. To give your skin the smooth texture and youthful appearance you desire, a process that remodels your collagen must be used. Thermage technology safely delivers up to twice the heat volume of your body, allowing more tissue to reach a higher temperature during treatment and thus increasing collagen production. Thermage only treats specific problem areas, so the results are focused and effective.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SHOW RESULTS?
Thermage's best feature is that significant results can be seen after just one treatment and will continue to improve over the next two to six months. Depending on your skin condition and unique aging process, results, while not permanent, can last for up to one to two years.
WHICH BODY AREAS CAN THERMAGE TREAT?
Sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin, wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition in the lips can all be treated with Thermage. Thermage can treat under eye bags, hooding, rough texture on the eyelids, wrinkles and fine lines, and other factors that contribute to tired-looking eyes around the eyes. Thermage can also be used to treat wrinkled, crepey, sagging, or bulging skin on the tummy, arms, and legs, as well as the appearance of cellulite.
WHO MAKES A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THERMAGE?
Thermage is suitable for all skin types because it does not cause variable pigmentation in darker complexions. However, it is important to note that it produces better results for those who are just beginning to consider cosmetic facial surgery. Patients with extremely loose skin, sagging jowls, and a turkey gobbler may not see much improvement from Thermage and are better suited for surgical procedures such as facelifts.
DOES THERMAGE SKIN TIGHTENING HAVE ANY RISKS OR SIDE EFFECTS?
Overall, side effects from Thermage are extremely rare and minor. A small percentage of people may experience temporary redness or swelling that lasts for a day or two. The momentary heat sensation experienced when the tool first touches the skin is the only common complaint among patients. Most people can resume their normal routine as soon as their thermage treatment is finished, with no side effects.
