Thermage is a non-surgical procedure that uses a handheld device to tighten existing collagen via a sequence of radiofrequency heating. The procedure is commonly used for skin tighening, which leads to the improvement of facial lines and wrinkles. These results come with absolutely no down time. In fact you can resume all daily activities immediately after your treatment. Most patients experience an immediate skin tightening through the heat generated. Over the next four months, you can anticipate new collagen forming, which will reduce facial lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin.
Common areas for Thermage include:
Face – Thermage is most popular for facial procedures, and the non-surgical procedure has been heralded by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow. While not as dramatic as a face lift, the effects of Thermage can last for up to two years. It works both as an alternative for patients who cannot have a face lift, but also as an easier option to produce new collagen and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. From lifting the cheeks, to tightening the jowls, or decreasing the wrinkles in the nasolabial fold, and even as a brow lift, these are the most common facial treatments that Thermage treats.
Stomach / Tummy – This can be an option for women looking to tighten abdominal skin after pregnancy, or for men and women who have recently lost weight and want to tone the stomach area. And unlike a surgical “tummy tuck”, Thermage is a non-surgical alternative with no “down time” or recuperation.
Eye Wrinkles – Thermage is also used on skin located around the eyes. Because this is a sensitive skin area, having an effective non-surgical option benefits the patient in many ways. It often is used here to reduce wrinkles above and below the eyes and can also make the eyes look more open. That said, this procedure does not improve under-eye fat or fill in tear trough hollows as fillers do and all options should be discussed with Dr. Green prior to the procedure.
Neck, Thighs & Other areas – Other areas that can receive Thermage include hands, knees, arms, legs and buttocks.
