Thermage is a non-invasive procedure that uses radio frequency (RF) technology. It's safe and clinically proven to help improve the skin's texture, giving a younger-looking appearance. This technique can be used on all skin types - both on and off the face - and is handled in a single procedure. There are many advantages to this method, with perhaps the biggest being that there is little to no downtime associated with treatment. Also, the results look natural.
Thermage works by using radio frequency to heat up your skin's deep collagen-rich layers. The heat allows existing collagen to be remodelled as it helps encourage the production of new collagen, thus improving your skin's smoothness and texture.
This method can be used effectively to treat wrinkles and fine lines on the face, neck, eyes, and other body parts (including the hands, thighs, and buttocks). Thermage can also be used to help smoothen uneven and dimpled skin, while also temporarily reducing the appearance of cellulite. For most people, Thermage is a single-treatment procedure - which means regular treatments aren’t necessary to enjoy the results you want.
Thermage is one of the few options available for non-invasive and effective wrinkle treatments with little to no downtime. The in-clinic treatment takes around 45 minutes for the face. It can take up to 90 minutes for other parts of your body, depending on the size, location, and condition of the area being treated. And because it's a short and single-visit procedure with long-lasting results, Thermage can fit into even the busiest lifestyles.
Unlike surgery, there is no need for you to prep prior to the procedure, and there is no blood work or fasting to be done. There is also no special care required after your treatment. All you need is to do, is maintain a basic skincare regime. There is little to no downtime following the procedure, which means you can return to your regular activities right after treatment. Some patients may see temporary redness or minor swelling, but that should disappear within 24 hours.
This is what makes Thermage different and highly favoured. Unlike many other procedures, Thermage does not involve any surgery, injections, or downtime. It works both on and off the face, on all skin types, which makes it very accessible. Additionally, no other treatment heats as deeply as Thermage does, which makes it very effective. By heating your skin's innermost layers, Thermage gives you smoother skin than other laser treatments and radio frequency procedures.
All of this means that Thermage can help you enjoy subtle, natural-looking results that can take years off of your appearance. There is no need to prepare, no need to take time off to recover, and no need to hide your skin during a prolonged healing period. With Thermage, you can go in and out of the clinic in a single visit and enjoy more youthful skin for years to come.
