The Thermage procedure uses a unique form of radiofrequency energy that can enhance the skin’s firmness, tone and texture and provide a better contour. This results in a noticeable tightening, similar to that of a lift, but without an incision or recovery time. With the gentle touch of the device tip, the surface of the skin is cooled while the deeper tissue is altered by the radiofrequency heating. This stimulates new collagen production to provide dramatic rejuvenation that appears quickly yet is long-lasting.
Thermage Total Tip is very effective for patients with a moderate amount of sagging skin and wrinkles. Minimal redness is seen in some patients after the procedure, but it usually disappears within an hour. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately following a treatment. The results are typically noticeable for at least six months and in some cases will last for several years.
