How Thermage works
Thermage treatments are all about focusing radiofrequency energy to kick start the body’s own natural renewal process.
Treatment uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin. The applied heat causes collagen to contract and encourages new collagen to start growing.
What does this mean? It means Thermage can help create smoother skin following a single treatment, with results continuing to improve for four to six months.
What to expect from a Thermage treatment
Thermage treatments are typically 30-45 minutes for eyes or face and up to 90 minutes for larger body areas.
Noticeable results can be achieved with a single treatment. Results can continue to improve for four to six months. In discussion with an authorised Thermage provider, you might choose to have a Thermage treatment every six months to two years depending on your skin care goals and financial considerations.
Most patients can see and feel Thermage results immediately after treatment. Continued improvements can occur for four to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Better yet, results are long lasting. See untouched results of Thermage on the face, eyes and body.
Thermage incorporates vibration and cooling technology which has been shown to aid comfort during treatment. You will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. Throughout the procedure, your physician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. Some patients may feel a mild or moderate pain during the treatment. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically little to no recovery time, and no special follow-up care required.
Be sure to ask if your Thermage provider has the latest Thermage FLX technology – it provides an optimised treatment algorithm with site specific real-time tuning, allowing optimised energy delivery with each and every treatment ‘rep’ so you get a consistent result. The Thermage FLX also facilitates faster treatment times, making it even easer to fit Thermage into your lifestyle.
Remember, everyone’s skin tightening goals and circumstances are different, so for an individualised recommendation, we recommend consulting your Thermage provider.
