How Thermage Skin Tightening Works
As we age, collagen in the skin breaks down, causing wrinkles and sagging. Thermage is a skin care procedure that tightens and smooths skin on the face, arms, tummy, hands, and other areas using heat radio frequency technology. Our medical spa offers Thermage treatments as part of our skin care solutions.
Thermage treatments are known to produce great results that often last for months, depending on the condition of the skin at the time of the treatment.
During the Thermage skin tightening procedure, a handpiece is passed over the treatment area delivering heat and radio-frequency energy to the deep layers of the skin. This radio energy and heat combination stimulates the existing collagen in your skin and causes the collagen to grow. The procedure takes between one and two hours, depending on the size of the area being targeted for treatment.
Following the treatment, you should see immediate results as the collagen rejuvenates and fills in the wrinkles, firming up previously sagging skin. The appearance of your skin will continue to improve over the next several months.
Thermage is ideal as a skin care solution for patients who have had babies, have lost weight or have skin that has wrinkled or lost elasticity through the normal aging process. Thermage can be used to:
- Tighten sagging jowls
- Firm the skin underneath the chin
- Re-contour the jaw line
- Improve the overall texture and tone of skin
- Lift the eye area
It is estimated that more than 190,000 patients worldwide have undergone Thermage treatment that is FDA approved for use in the United States.
We get a lot of questions from amazed patients about how Thermage manages to work its magic on aging or sagging skin. It’s a simple procedure that works through a number of processes. Thermage applies deep heating and radio frequency energy to the collagen in the underlayers of your skin. This causes the existing collagen to tighten while stimulating new collagen formation. This is what causes the immediate tightening of skin that amazes our patients. This immediate response makes skin smoother while also improving tone.
Thermage heats up the deep layers of your skin, but it also cools the surface of the skin, which protects the skin during the Thermage procedure and prevents damage. This is why there’s no recovery time associated with Thermage skin therapy treatments. There’s no damage that would require recovery.
Thermage is extremely safe. In rare cases a patient may experience mild swelling as a result of the procedure or other mild side effects such as redness, occasional blistering, numbness or pigment changes, all of which can be resolved. We would be happy to discuss such side effects with you in your free consultation.
