AGING SKIN - Sagging - Thermage®

What is Thermage?

Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure that helps tighten and contour your skin in a single treatment - with no surgery, no injections, and little to no downtime. Instead, Thermage stimulates your body’s natural renewal of collagen, which creates subtle, natural looking results on and off the face.

How does Thermage work?

Thermage strengthens the collagen in the skin without surgery and reverses the signs of aging by:

• Tightening the skin
• Lifting the eyebrows
• Tightening loose skin around the chin, jaw and neck
• Softening the appearance of scarring caused by acne
• Softening deep forehead creases and laugh lines

Thermage works by delivering heat energy through a handpiece to the deeper parts of the skin (dermis). This handpiece also has a cooling spray that protects the superficial part of the skin (epidermis) from injury. The heat energy causes the deeper tissues to contract to decrease the appearance of lines. Eventually new collagen develops and remodels to give an even firmer appearance to the skin. This technique is non-ablative in that it does not cause damage to the surface of the skin.
