There’s no denying the fact that aging transforms the way we act, feel, and look. From facial lines originating from the side of your nose extending to the corners of your mouth due to a lifetime of laughing and smiling, to sagging skin that has lost its elasticity after years of hard work and collagen breakdown; aging causes the inevitable fading of our youthful look and beauty in several ways. However, technology has provided us with a safe and effective solution that turns the oxymoron of ‘aging youthfully’ into a reality. The solution is called ‘Thermage’.
What is Thermage?
Considered to be one of the most innovative cosmetic techniques available today, Thermage tightens the internal structure of the skin to restore your contoured, wrinkle-free look. What makes this FDA-approved cosmetic procedure unique is its ability to produce a marked and almost instantaneous reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Thermage is also recognized as an effective method for treating other areas of the body as well, such as the legs, arms, tummy, and hands.
6 Q+A’S ABOUT THERMAGE…
1. How does it work?
Collagen breakdown is the primary reason behind wrinkles and sagging skin. Thermage works by stimulating the production of collagen which results in a tighter, well-contoured look. The procedure uses radio frequency energy to activate fibroblasts, a type of cells responsible for producing collagen.
2. What areas can be treated with Thermage?
Thermage can treat wrinkles on the eyes, face, neck, arms, hands, tummy, buttocks, and thighs effectively.
3. How long does each treatment take?
This depends on the size of the area being treated. Typically, Thermage treatments average about 60 minutes for the eyes, 45 minutes for the face, and 60 to 90 minutes for other parts of the body.
4. What results can I expect from Thermage?
While Thermage is known to be one of the most effective methods for eliminating wrinkles, sagging skin, and other signs of aging, the precise results of treatment will depend on your skin condition, your age, and your general health. The results appear almost immediately most of the time and continued improvement can be observed for up to six months.
5. How long do the results last?
The results obtained from a Thermage treatment can last for years depending on your initial skin condition, your health, and your exposure to different environmental factors such as sunlight, smoking, etc.
6. Are there any side effects of the procedure?
Thermage is considered to be one of the safest aesthetic procedures available today. Severe side effects and complications are rare; however, you may experience mild redness, hot and cold sensations, and swelling for a few hours after undergoing a Thermage treatment.
Unlike invasive aesthetic procedures, Thermage claims to have little to no downtime so recovery is simple and you can reapply makeup and get back to your routine immediately after treatment.
