Ever since being featured in the media by high-profile personalities such as Oprah Winfrey,Thermage® skin treatments have been quickly growing in popularity. This non-invasive treatment method is designed to tighten and contour your skin without resorting to surgery, injections, or other invasive procedures.
In order to understand how Thermage works, a basic understanding of your skin is necessary. As you age, the collagen fibers that exist beneath the outer layer of your skin eventually break down, leading to loose, sagging skin. Since the body’s ability to create new collagen declines as years go by, this effect eventually becomes compounded.
To address this problem, Thermage uses a special radiofrequency (RF) technology that safely heats the deep layers of your skin, tightening existing collagen and stimulating new collagen growth. Over time, your skin will be smoother and tighter, with an improved texture and tone.
While Thermage is most often used as a facial rejuvenation procedure, it can also be used on other areas of the body, including the neck, abdomen, knees, buttocks, and hands. Thermage is also effective at treating stubborn cellulite.
