Wrinkles are an unfortunate yet natural part of life. As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity and our skin loses its volume. There is nothing that a person can do on their own to permanently remove or prevent wrinkles. Thermage® is a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure that has been shown as a safe way to help smooth out your skin, diminish the appearance of wrinkles, and give you an overall healthier appearance. Thermage® has been shown to be both safe and effective. It gives results that are natural. After using Thermage®, people are not going to come up to you and ask you if you have had work done. It’s just not obvious like that. However, they will notice that you look better overall.
Unlike certain procedures that are only designed to work on individuals of a certain skin color or of a certain skin type, Thermage® is designed to work on people of all skin types. It is designed to produce results after just one treatment. While the majority of our patients use Thermage® to correct the problems on their face, the procedure can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on just about any part of the body. Dimpled skin and cellulite can be temporarily reduced with this treatment.
Unlike surgical procedures that require prep before the procedure or recovery after the procedure, with Thermage®, there is no special prep or special follow-up. Once a procedure is done, you will need to follow some basic skin maintenance. For example, you want to stay out of the sun and use sunscreen. With that being said, most patients are able to leave our office and go right back to their everyday activities. This is an extremely convenient treatment for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
Thermage® is able to produce such awesome results because of the way it uses radiofrequency technology. This technology is designed to carefully heat the layers of your skin that produce and store collagen. As a result, the collagen that you currently have in your skin is remodeled, and your body is encouraged to produce new collagen. This makes your skin smoother and improves the texture of it.
Wrinkles are an inevitable part of life. No matter how much we diet or exercise, we can’t get away from them. With procedures like Thermage®, however, we are able to take steps to keep the aging process under control.
