THERMAGE


Thermage® RESHAPING YOUR FUTURE Skin Tightening and Contouring Without Surgery

   WHAT IS THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE?

A patented radiofrequency (RF) technology called ThermaCool™. The incision-free procedure is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities.

  HOW DOES IT WORK?

The ThermaCool device uses a sophisticated treatment tip called ThermaTip™, which delivers a controlled amount of RF energy. With each touch to the skin, the ThermaTip device uniformly heats a large volume of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and its underlying tissue while simultaneously protecting the outer layer of the skin with cooling. This deep uniform heating action causes deep structures in your skin to immediately tighten. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten skin, resulting in healthier, smoother skin and more youthful appearance.

   WHAT DOES THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE FEEL LIKE?

You experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your skin and underlying tissue.

   WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?

Measurable tightening improvements appear gradually over 2 to 6 months after a single treatment session. Many patients have reported seeing an earlier response.

   HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Unlike many laser procedures requiring four or more sessions, a single Thermage treatment has produced results in the majority of patients.

   HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The Thermage procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.

   WHAT WILL MY SKIN FEEL LIKE AFTER THE  PROCEDURE?

Immediately following a Thermage procedure your skin should feel tighter, smoother and more youthful. Over time, you will notice additional tightening.

   HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE LAST?

The Thermage procedure causes immediate tightening of the collagen structure, with additional tightening over time. Results may last 24 months or longer based on the patients' natural aging process.
