Medical Grade RadioFrequency Skin Tightening by Thermage

(b) facial wrinkles;

(c) cellulite; and

(d) all body laxity (sagging skin) e.g. abdomen, arms, neck, thighs.

Science behind Thermage

Thermage CPT - how it works

Thermage discharges monopolar radiofrequency energy to the skin. This electrical energy is met by the skin cells. The electrical resistance converts the radiofrequency (RF) energy into heat energy. The heat produces does two things:-

(1) Short Term. The heat breaks down hydrogen bonds in the skin, causing its structure to shorten and thicken. What this means is that a few weeks after the procedure, this molecular structure shorting will lead to visible tightening effect of the skin.

(2) Long Term: New, healthy collagen is produced in the skin due to the heating effect of the radiofrequency (RF) energy, leading to long lasting tightening seen after a few months of the procedure. In addition, the heat also stimulates blood flow, which leads to an increased metabolism (slow removal) of the fatty layer of the skin.

Thermage radiofrequency (RF) energy is monopolar, as opposed to bipolar. The advantage of monopolar radiofrequency is that it penetrates deeper than bipolar radiofrequency, reaching the deepest skin layer for the production of collagen.

It is a myth that the only ways to tighten one’s facial skin is by way of invasive surgery. Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment which is absolutely non-invasive, can be very effective for a modest face lift.* Thermage has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles and sagging skin.

Side Effects

The Thermage procedure is non-ablative, meaning the radiofrequency (RF) energy does not damage the top layer of the skin. The radiofrequency (RF) energy penetrates underneath the skin, leaving the skin surface intact. This translates into a much shorter downtime, even none.*

Almost immediately after the treatment, there should be visible tightening and minimal swelling.* Swelling is necessary as its presence indicates that the treatment was successful, and that long lasting tightening results are more likely to be achieved.* In addition, there may also be some transient erythema (redness of the skin) after the procedure.

The swelling and redness should disappear approximately 2-3 days after the treatment. However, this is not visible most of the time and so there is essentially NO downtime.*

After Childbirth or Losing Massive Weight

The tummy is an area of special concern to women after childbirth. Tummy skin after childbirth and weight loss may become lax and loose. Some women also have this problem of loose skin around the tummy after they lose massive amounts of weight. Why should loose skin at your belly stop you from wearing your favorite bikini?

Thermage can tighten up loose skin around your tummy / belly ofand get you one step closer to a firmer, tighter, more toned tummy.*

Jawline & Neck

Jawline sagging, or not being able to see a clearly defined jawline, is a sign of aging. The more the skin around your jawline sags, the older you will look. Thankfully Thermage is also able to tighten up this part of the face and make your jawline look defined.*

In addition to the jawline, Thermage can also tighten the loose skin around your neck, reducing neck lines and giving you a complete fresher and younger look.*

Results

Facial tightening improvement continues for 6 months post Thermage treatment. Depending on the area treated, results can include*:

  • Improved complexion.
  • Tighter, more contoured skin.
  • Eyebrow lift.
  • Correction of hooding of the eyelids.
  • Correction of wrinkles around the eyes.
  • Improve laxity of the jawline and reduce neck lines.
  • Improved nasolabial folds.
  • Improved acne scars.
  • Tightening of skin of the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
  • Improved cellulite.

How is it done?

How many sessions are needed?

Only one session of Thermage Treatment is required to see results.* The next Thermage treatment should be done approximately 6 – 12 months after the last treatment as aging and gravity do not stop!

There are some surveys showing that some patients feel that they look 5 years younger look after 3 sessions of Thermage.*

FAQs

What is Thermage?

Thermage is a safe, non-invasive procedure that is clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance.* The treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime – on all skin colours, on and off the face, all in a single procedure.* Since there is no surgery involved you can generally return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. It has been approved by the FDA since 2002 and available only in the doctor’s office. The latest Thermage procedure offers Comfort Pulse Technology, significantly improving treatment comfort. It works on all skin types.

How does it work?

Thermage is a deep heating technology that uses radiofrequency (RF) to heat the skin. A smooth flat tip delivers Thermage’s unique radiofrequency technology, which safely heats the deep collagen-rich layers of the skin. This heat helps to tighten existing collagen that have become loose with age and stimulate the formation of new collagen over time, which reduces sagging, renews contours and improves the thickness and texture of your skin.*

Each treatment takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour for the face. Only a single treatment is usually sufficient to deliver results.*

Who performs the procedure?

Only physicians are trained to use the Thermage effectively for best outcome with minimal side effects.*

Which areas of the body can you use Thermage for?

It can be used safely and effectively on the face, eyes, abdomen, arms and thighs. It also reduces the appearance of cellulite.*

What results can I expect?

Wrinkled, crepey or saggy skin can appear smoother; bulging skin can be tighter and firmer.* The eyes may look bigger and brighter with less hooding.* The results are subtle, very natural and gradually improves over time.* You see full results in 6 months and some patients report improvements lasting more than 1 year.*

Immediate result is usually visible and improve over time as the body rebuilds natural collagen. In most patients, measurable tightening and contouring gradually appears in 2 to 6 months following a single treatment session.* Results can last for 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and the process of aging. It’s setting the clock back, but not stopping the clock.*

Results do vary depending on age and skin condition.

Is there any downtime?

There is no special care required and most patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment session, including your own makeup and skincare regime. There may be slight redness immediately after the procedure that resolves in an hour or so and slight swelling that disappears within the day.

Does it hurt?

Each time the treatment tip is applied, there will first be a brief cooling sensation, followed by a brief heating sensation and finally by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of the skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening, whereas the cooling sensation protects the topmost layer of the skin so it prevents blisters. Heat is absolutely essential to see skin tightening results. You may feedback to your treating physician on the level of heat to help maximize your comfort while maximizing results. Vibration of the tip also helps to reduce discomfort.

Thermage has an excellent safety record. Side effects are few and may include redness, swelling, blisters.

Can I get a Thermage treatment in place of a facelift?

Thermage can definitely tighten loose skin but it cannot give the dramatic results of a surgical facelift. If you are looking for a modest improvement without the trauma of surgery, then Thermage is right for you.*

Can I get a Thermage procedure if I’ve already had other procedures?

Thermage is compatible with most other cosmetic procedures and in fact, may complement some procedures such as btx for wrinkles, threadlift and skin resurfacing laser treatments. Thermage may be repeated once a year.
