A variety of genetic and environmental factors can have an impact on the laxity in your skin, particularly with age. Turn back the clock and restore a tighter, smoother appearance through Thermage®. NYC patients can expect little to no downtime and long-lasting results.
What is Thermage®?
A combination of factors can leave skin with a deflated, sagging appearance, but Thermage® can change that. This non-invasive radiofrequency therapy addresses areas across the body to ensure a smoother, tighter contour. Thermage® works with focused radiofrequency energy directed at targeted areas through a combination of heating and cooling elements. The heat energy directly targets the deep tissue while the cooling touch ensures patient comfort and skin protection.
How Can Thermage® Enhance Shape?
The FDA approved Thermage® for use on the body in 2006, offering a safe method to reduce skin laxity in the arms, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. If you’ve noticed sagging in your arms or loose skin from your abdomen to lower body, then Thermage® may be the solution you need. Whether it’s unsightly dimples or bulges in your abdomen or loose skin around your knees, Thermage® can transform your skin to bring back the youthful contours of your body. You will notice an overall improvement in the texture of your skin and even a temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
This procedure is especially popular among women who’ve noticed skin laxity in the abdominal region following pregnancy. With the amount of stretching involved, it’s only natural for women to experience noticeable loose sin and even stretch marks. As an effective alternative to liposuction or tummy tuck, Thermage® can tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
If you’ve just hit an important milestone and finally reached your goal weight, you should have cause to celebrate. While weight loss is the desired outcome, loose skin may be an undesirable side effect. You may feel insecure about the extra skin near your arms, waist, and lower body. Luckily, Thermage® works to target and tighten these areas without the use of invasive procedures such as a body lift or abdominoplasty.
Over time, you may notice that your skin’s appearance has become loose and deflated, no longer resembling the person you once were. Collagen production is at the core of aging, which is where Thermage® comes in. By encouraging the natural production of collagen, this radiofrequency energy works to restore the youthful, smooth texture to your body. This procedure can address common areas that may lead to insecurity such as loose skin beneath the arms, on the legs, and buttocks. Let Thermage® bring back the youthful radiance you long for.
What to Expect
Treatment times vary depending on the size of the treatment area. Typically, Dr. Green completes a session in 45 minutes, but treatments can run up to 90 minutes for larger body areas. Thermage® is a non-invasive, single treatment process, and requires minimal downtime. Results depend on skin type, age, and individual body response to heat treatment. While some patients see results and skin tightening immediately, the process does not reach its full potential for six months.
If you’re looking for a solution without intensive surgery or extended recovery, this non-invasive procedure can provide the results you’re looking for. Love your skin from head to toe with Thermage®. NYC patients can rewind the clock and emerge with youthful, smooth skin.
