Thermage for skin tightening uses a non-invasive radio frequency (RF) energy to re-tighten loose and sagging tissues. Best suited for early aging issues, Thermage can be seen almost as a “prevention measure” to slow the beginning natural collagen degradation that comes as you get into your 30s and 40s. After your 20s, the collagen in your skin begins to uncoil and break down, almost imperceptibly at first and later resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.
With Thermage, your skin’s existing collagen is remolded (recoiled into a tighter spiral closer to younger collagen) – and new collagen production is stimulated. The promotion of new collagen growth continues to help you look younger and improves over time. The result is skin that looks and feels noticeably smoother and tighter with more defined and youthful contours.
At La Jolla, we now offer the expansion of the revolutionary Thermage system to address areas of the face (often referred to as a “facelift without surgery”) and other areas of the body!
Eyes By Thermage
Discover the beauty of having younger-looking eyes. Trust your eyes to Board Certified Ophthalmologist Dr. Nasrin Mani. She has worked for over 20 years with lasers in the treatment of eye conditions. When you add her exacting touch with state-of-the-art Thermage technology, you have a winning combination. You will see tighter, smoother skin all around the eyes. The procedure reduces hooding of the eyelids without surgery while softening fine lines and crow’s feet.
Another eyelid smoother is the DeepFX CO2 laser. This laser is designed to remove wrinkling and in the process tighten skin on the face, neck, and eyelids. Your eyes look more lifted and brighter, open and alert. It’s much easier to apply eye makeup to smooth eyelids. Immediately apply make-up and return to your routine.
Body by Thermage
Thermage takes the impressive results achieved with Thermage facial treatments and delivers them to sagging skin across the body. Thermage delivers radiofrequency energy into the dermis layer of the skin. There the RF energy converts to heat and triggers a wound response in the body. The body responds by contracting existing collagen across the treatment areas, and then it initiates new collagen production.
The result is firmer, younger-looking skin on problem areas such as the lower abdomen, thighs, and anywhere you’re not happy with your sagging skin.
