One of the reasons why people find it hard to look at their aging face in the mirror is because they feel like the aging process is something that they have no control over. Many feel like their body is actually betraying them.
The truth of the matter is that there is little that a person can do on their own to control or reverse the aging process. However, modern technology and cosmetic medicine has gone a long way in helping people to have some say in how they age. Thermage® is an example of a treatment that can impact the way a person looks as they age.
What is Thermage®?
Thermage® is a radiofrequency treatment. It is designed to pinpoint the layers of your skin where collagen is produced. Collagen is one of the basic building blocks of your skin. It plays a role in giving your skin its flexibility, keeping your skin tight, making your skin look vibrant and giving you that overall radiant appearance.
As you age, your body starts to produce less and less collagen. The result is that your skin starts to sag, you develop wrinkles and you start to see a lot of those unwanted skin imperfections. Thermage® addresses those issues by using radiofrequency energy to heat up the layers of your skin where collagen is produced. The result is that your skin is kicked into an overactive mode where it starts to produce collagen at a level that is close to what it produced when you were younger.
In short order, you start to see the results. Your skin looks and feels smoother. When you look in the mirror, you see a younger face looking back at you. This affects the way that you feel about yourself. Since you are more confident, others treat you differently.
Where Can Thermage® Be Used?
This treatment can be used on different parts of your body. For example, when it is used around your eyes, it can treat your upper and lower eyelids. It can make them more elastic, and it can remove bags under your eyes. It can help you go from looking like you’re tired and worn out to looking like you are alert.
Thermage® can also be used on your face. One area where it is particularly effective is on your neck. As a person ages, they start to develop a turkey neck. This comes from loose skin hanging around the neck. When this happens, a person looks in the mirror and asks themselves what in the world happen to their jawline. Thermage® is an effective tool to smooth out those wrinkles and to give you a more defined jawline.
Since the aging process does not only happen on the face, but on the entire body, Thermage® can be used most anywhere on the body that you have excessive sagging skin or unwanted dimples. Popular treatment areas besides the face and neck include the arms, thighs, buttocks and abdomen.
