Thermage is an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment utilized to tighten skin, as well as reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging skin. The Thermage procedure’s popularity is continuing to increase. Many individuals call Thermage the nonsurgical facelift of the future!
What is Thermage?
Thermage treatments employ radiofrequency energy heat which tightens the deeper layers of the skin. The system targets all three layers of skin while attempting to keep skin rejuvenated and strong. Through the process, Thermage reduces the appearance of wrinkles, jowls, in addition to saggy skin in the neck or brow area. Thermage is additionally effective at skin tightening other bodily areas. The tightening treatment safely heats the skin to produce collagen and is a good alternative to a facelift, tummy tuck, or other more invasive procedures. The procedure is painless, noninvasive, and requires no recovery time. However, Thermage tightening treatment provides immediate, excellent results.
As the collagen in the dermis and subcutaneous layers stretch and sag, the skin loses firmness. The Thermage procedure specifically targets collagen-rich areas. The applied radiofrequency heat stimulates collagen production. As the area heats up, the system tricks the body into thinking it is suffering from an injury. As a result, the system regrows collagen to restore the skin’s overall structure.

What is the Treatment Like?
The higher the setting used during a Thermage treatment, the better the final result. However, there is an increased risk of pain or discomfort. For patients that request or require a more intense treatment, doctors can recommend pain medication before beginning the procedure. The preparation regarding treatment varies from patient to patient.
Some patients feel a brief, deep heating sensation as the applicator tool contacts the treatment area. However, the sensation is mild, and the out layer of the dermis is cooled with a spray. The benefit of the applied cooling spray is two-fold. It not only relieves the patient but additionally protects visible skin layers from damage.
The Thermage procedure is noninvasive. This means quick and simple recovery and the biggest advantage over traditional facelifts. Requiring no surgery, this procedure provides much faster, easier recovery time than a surgical facelift. With a Thermage procedure, your skin feels right immediately after treatment. However, results manifest over a few month period after the procedure. Patients will still see some subtle results immediately.
Side effects of Thermage rarely occur. However, this is relatively minor, appearing as mild redness, bumps, or blisters in treated areas. These symptoms disappear on their own within a few days’ time.

Laser skin treatments require up to 10 or more treatment sessions for optimal success. Thermage however, is convenient for patients. A single treatment delivers preeminent results. Thermage results in less work involved, and fewer treatments. As a result, the treatment is far more cost-effective than many alternatives.
The results of Thermage treatment vary. This is dependent on the patient’s skin condition, and the existing collagen fibers. The therapy can improve any patient’s skin. However, patients with a healthier overall skin health experience more dramatic results.
