Thermage Skin Tightening
Thermage is a non-surgical method to tighten and smooth wrinkled and sagging skin. Thermage uses radio frequency to signal the deeper layers of the skin to produce new collagen, replacing old devitalized collagen fibers thereby increasing skin elasticity.
The skin attains a more youthful appearance while becoming firmer and tighter resulting in “a lifting of the skin”. The method produces no incisions and requires virtually no recovery time. The entire face, eyes, neck, upper arms, abdomen, love handles, thighs and buttocks can be treated.
The results are noticeable within two months after a single treatment with maximal effect one year after treatment. Maintenance is required every three years to maintain long term results.
With the new advanced treatment protocol, treatments have become quicker, less painful and more effective than before, with a treatment success rate in excess of 80%. Skin tightening should be a part of every Aesthetic patient’s protocol in order to prevent sagging skin and maintain good, elastic skin quality.
