The Thermage system is a modern, non-surgical alternative for addressing visible signs of aging. This non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy has the ability to tighten, contour and smooth skin to give you a generally younger look.
What Is Thermage?
The Thermage FLX Skin Tightening Laser is a radiofrequency laser that works with the collagen in your skin. Collagen is the substance in your skin that keeps it smooth and supple, but that unfortunately breaks down as we age, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. The Thermage FLX laser painlessly and safely penetrates the skin to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers below, activating them so that the collagen contracts, stimulating the production of new collagen, resulting in smoother skin.
What Can I Expect During My Treatment?
The Thermage FLX Skin Tightening Laser includes vibratory technology that dramatically reduces any discomfort. You can expect to feel a slight heating sensation at the point where the device touches your skin and then a pleasant cooling sensation.
What Can I Expect From the Results?
Noticeable results usually show up gradually after the treatment, anywhere from 2-6 months depending on your specific skin condition.* The treatment can last for anywhere from 1-2 years*, at which point you can have another treatment to renew the effects.
What Can I Expect After the Procedure?
One of the great benefits of Thermage is that there is minimal downtime. There are generally few side effects with Thermage; you may experience some redness or swelling around the treatment area but it should fade within 24 hours of your being treated. There is no special aftercare needed and most people return to their regular activities right away after their procedure.
Are There Any Contraindications to Thermage?
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
