Body by Thermage®
Body treatments by Thermage™, offer a single-treatment, nonsurgical method of smoothing, tightening and contouring the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs and arms. Your results will be dependent upon your skin condition, age and your body’s individual response to the heat application. Most patients see some level of tightening right away, but the process is not complete for 6 months.
Benefits of the new CPT system?
- Faster Treatment
- Superior Tightening with increased energy dispersion
- Vibrational Delivery (vibrating hand piece offsets heat sensation making your treatment more like a massage than a medical procedure
For women who’ve just had a baby, lost weight or simply want firmer, tighter and smoother skin, Body by Thermage delivers results other noninvasive procedures can’t match.
Thermage technology utilizes several “tips” – each one with a unique purpose and ability to treat skin on different body and face locations. The original Thermatip for the face is a smaller tip with a shallower heat penetration. The DC tip (Deep Contour Tip) was developed for areas of the body such as the tummy, arms, knees and thighs which has thicker fat layers. The latest tip, the Thermage Tip 16, is a large size tip that evenly treats large areas much faster and more comfortably. With the newest Comfort Pulse Technology treatment is considerably easier to undergo and results are increasingly even.
Women who find it difficult following pregnancy to regain taut skin on the abdomen will appreciate the effects Tummy Thermage has on restoring a smoother firmer stomach. Exercise may improve muscle tone but often skin stretched by one or multiple pregnancies can’t be helped by exercise.
Weight Loss and Loss of Skin Firmness
Often the negative of weight loss is the loose skin that’s left behind. Although Thermage is not a fat reduction treatment, it does have the effect of tightening loose skin. Dr. Mani or our Physician Assistant Thermage Specialist will be able to let you know if you are a candidate for Thermage to help restore firmer skin in your abdominal area.
