Thermage was the very first FDA-approved treatment for skin tightening in 2003, and Dr. Mott was one of the first physicians performing the treatment. Since then, numerous advances have been made almost every year making treatments with Thermage more effective, safe, and painless than ever. The CPT system that uses a vibrating hand piece to make the treatments even more comfortable has revolutionized this “no downtime” treatment for skin laxity.
How Does It Work?
As we age, the collagen in our skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Thermage uses patented radio frequency (RF) technology to safely heat the deeper layers of the skin, causing the collagen to contract and tighten. This subtle and specific wound to the collage layer also stimulates existing collagen and promotes new collagen to grow for younger looking skin.
Almost everyone can expect some noticeable collagen tightening. Many patients have seen:
- Smoother, tighter skin with less sagging
- Redefined contours along the jawline and under the chin
- Softening of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead
- Tightening of the saggy skin under the chin
Which Areas Of The Skin Can Be Treated?
- Thermage face procedure
- Thermage eyelid procedure
- Thermage body procedure
- Thermage hand procedure
How Long Will The The Results Last?
The effects continue to improve for up to six months following a single treatment. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and the natural aging process.
How Long Before I Can Return To My Normal Activities?
There is no special care needed after the procedure and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
