Loose, saggy skin along your jaw line can cause your face to look heavy and tired and add years to your appearance. However, a facelift may not be the only answer for significantly counteracting early signs of aging in the jowls. With Thermage®, you can enjoy a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your jawline or other areas of your face without going under the knife.
How Thermage® Works
Thermage® is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that beautifully tightens and tones loose skin without surgery or downtime. Using patented radiofrequency waves, Thermage® gently heats the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating production of—and reinforcing existing—collagen, the supportive framework that gives firmness and structure to the skin. When collagen levels in the skin are bolstered, the skin’s surface develops a plumper appearance reminiscent of how your skin looked in younger years.
A Facelift May Not Be Necessary
If you have premature aging in the jowl area that makes you look older than you are, you may be reluctant to undergo facial surgery due to surgical risks or concern over possible scars. Thermage® is a great non-invasive solution that can subtly yet effectively sculpt and tighten your jawline and create a younger, more refreshed appearance that doesn’t require incisions.
Beyond the Face
If you have sagging skin in other areas of your body, Thermage may be able to help there as well. Our patients are pleasantly surprised by how well this treatment works for skin tightening on other areas of the body such as arms, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks.
Choose the Right Doctor
Just like with any cosmetic procedure, the quality of results you’ll see is directly related to the skill and expertise of your doctor. Do your homework and choose a practitioner who has extensive experience using Thermage® to ensure he or she will deliver the best results possible.
