Thermage to Tighten and
Shape Skin and Smooth Wrinkles
Thermage Benefits are enormous in term of beauty. Your face is
important to you, and unfortunately, it can show signs of aging long before the rest of your body
does. If you have some minimal
wrinkling, bulges or sags, you may be interested in the non-invasive procedure called
Thermage. This is
a cosmetic surgery technique designed to improve the skin around the eyelids and eyes. In addition, Thermage
can help tighten skin on other parts of the body such as skin of
the stomach after pregnancy. The procedure can really restore or
improve your beauty and boost your confidence. Thermage is a form of anti aging
During a thermage procedure, there is no surgery and no injections are
involved. It takes very little
time for the actual procedure, but the skin is tightened and smoothed, which redefines the contours of the face and
gives your eyes a more alert and younger appearance. Because the collagen in the skin tends to break
down as we age, the face begins to form wrinkles or sag. The revolutionary Thermage procedure can lift
and firm the skin while renewing the collagen.
Radiofrequency (RF) technology is used to heat the dermis and subcutaneous layers
of the skin, which are the layers that lie under the epidermis, or surface of the skin. At the same time, this technology keeps the
skin’s surface cooled. The
skin is cleansed and spread with a gel-like substance. The technician performing the Thermage procedure
then uses the treatment tip to touch the skin areas that are being treated. Depending on the amount of preparation necessary
and the amount of treatment required, the procedure can last from a few minutes to an
hour. Treatments are
individualized to each person and may include different treatment levels. Generally only a single treatment is
required, and the results gradually appear between 2 and 6 months after the treatment has been completed and
can last for several years.
Women who are pregnant and people with pacemakers or other implanted electrical
devices should not receive Thermage treatment. If you have diabetes, heart problems,
suffer from tumors or system diseases such as lupus or have skin diseases in the treatment area you are not a
good candidate for this procedure.
There is not an average cost because it depends on the amount of treatment needed,
but the cost can range from $670 to $4000. There are no additional costs for
anesthesia or other surgical procedures.
Complications that may occur with Thermage tend to be temporary, such as skin
damage. The minimal risk of
burns, asymmetry of the face or uneven skin can be caused by improper use of the RF device, which is why it is so
important for the medical team that you choose to be highly trained in the procedure. Verify their experience before proceeding with
the procedure. If you experience serious adverse effects or painful symptoms, your Physician will
prescribe you an appropriate treatment to fight against these health issues.
