TREATMENTS FOR FACIAL SKIN TIGHTENING AND CONTOURING
With increasing age, we lose dermal volume and the skin’s capacity to produce collagen decreases, our skin’s structural integrity is compromised resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.
Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency treatment that smoothes, tightens and contours the skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. Its results are visible after 2 months, the time necessary for the activation of fibroblasts as well as the production of new collagen. Results lasts from 3 to 5 years.
Areas that can be treated:
Thermage is a proven, radiofrequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging skin. It stimulates the body to heal by formation of new collagen. The new collagen will ultimately serve to lift, tighten, and smooth the skin.
The procedure involves pressing a handpiece with a flat tip against the targeted area to deliver radiofrequency energy towards the deeper layers of skin. This process heats the skin to tighten existing collagen and to stimulate the skin to produce more collagen over time.
Patients will feel a brief cooling sensation when the handpiece is pressed against the skin in order to protect the skin from the heat when radiofrequency energy is released. The cooling is followed by a brief heating sensation each time after the radiofrequency energy is delivered. The heat is a sign that the energy is penetrating through the deeper layers of the skin.
Contraindications for this treatment are patients who carry a pacemaker, a cardioverter/defibrillator (ICD) or any other electronic implantable device or if a patient is pregnant or nursing, has an autoimmune disease or diabetes . This treatment was introduced over 10 ears ago, Thermage is now being used in more than 80 countries around the world, with over 6.000.000 treatments been carried out.
