The Thermage procedure is the only non-invasive treatment that delivers tighter, younger, and
healthier skin in a single treatment session. We use the Thermage CPT with TOTAL TIP!
Thermage is focused on rebuilding and remodeling collagen in your skin. Collagen is one of
the main components of skin that helps to maintain your youthful appearance. As we age the body produces less
collagen resulting in wrinkles and laxity of the skin. Thermage causes the collagen in the dermal layers of the
skin to tighten and increase; thereby reducing skin laxity and wrinkles and renews facial contours. Thermage uses
an FDA approved method of radiofrequency to create a precisely controlled zone of heating to achieve the desired
What does the Thermage procedure feel like?
With each touch of the
device, you will experience a brief heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your underlying skin. This
deep heating sensation is your indication that your collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening. The
physician controls the amount of energy delivered to balance procedural comfort with maximum results. Often
relaxants and pain medications may be given prior to the procedure to aid in patient comfort.
How long does it take?
The Thermage procedure can take up to 2 hours,
depending on the size of the treatment area.
What will my skin feel like after the procedure?
Immediately following a
Thermage procedure, you will notice minimal change. Over the next 4-6 months you will notice tightening and lifting
of the treated area.
How many treatments will I need?
A single thermage treatment has produced
results in the majority of patients.
When will I see results?
Recently published studies conducted by Thermage
show that measurable tightening improvements appear gradually over 2 to 6 months after a single treatment session.
However, many patients have reported seeing an earlier response.
How long will the effects of the Thermage procedure last?
reports by experienced cosmetic physicians indicate that results may last 24 months or longer based on the
patient's natural aging process.
Is the Thermage procedure safe?
The most frequently reported incidents
are classified as swelling, redness, bumps and blisters on or around the treated area. These side effects have
usually disappeared in a few days or weeks. A rare (<0.2%) but longer lasting side effect described as a skin
depression has also been reported.
How long before I can return to my normal activities?
Most people return
to their regular activities immediately following the Thermage procedure. Some people experience mild redness (like
a sunburn), but it usually disappears quickly. No special care is needed after treatment.
