What is Thermage?
Thermage is a proven radiofrequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. Benefits include the tightening of sagging skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and sculpting of unsightly bulges and wrinkles on the face and body. Thermage radiofrequency energy works with your body, stimulating your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want. Thermage treats targeted problem areas so the results are focused and effective.
What areas can be treated by Thermage?
Thermage procedures are most effective to treat the following areas:.
The Eyes: hooding fine lines and even our brow line can make us look worn-down. Thermage treats the upper and lower eyelids to help you look more youthful and rested.
The Face: as we age, phrases like “turkey neck”, loose jowls, sagging skin and “what happened to my jawline” creep in. Thermage smooths lines and wrinkles and remodels collagen for the overall health of the skin.
The Body: aging doesn’t just affect the skin on our faces, our bodies see the effects too, with creepy, sagging skin and unwanted bulges and dimples. Thermage is a non-invasive way to smooth the skin on our bodies and even improve the appearance of cellulite.
