Looking for smoother, tighter skin with less sagging? Thermage® could be the answer!
If you are looking for smoother, tighter skin with less sagging, then Thermage could be for you! This ‘non-surgical’ facelift is actually a non-invasive procedure suitable for the 35-55 year old age group and is used to tighten and improve the skin of the face, neck, eyelids, tummy, arms and legs. It can also can be used to retighten a facelift which has begun to sag (See Figure 1). Thermage’s patented radiofrequency (RF) technology has been in use worldwide for over ten years and the results speak for themselves.
As we age, the collagen in our skin breaks down resulting in a loss of elasticity and wrinkles. Thermage works by safely heating the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate existing collagen and promote new collagen growth to create younger looking skin.
With Thermage, while the skin is improved immediately, the real results are evident between 4-6 months later after the collagen has had the chance to regenerate and increase. The effects can last for years depending on the individual’s skin condition, natural ageing process and lifestyle such as sun exposure, smoking or consumption of alcohol.
The procedure also requires no down time, which can be a huge benefit to those who don’t have the luxury of weeks of recovery time. Most patients return to full regular activities immediately after treatment.
