Thermage Radiofrequency heats up the collagen, which in turn denatures it and allows the body to lay down new collagen over time. It is perfect for lifting and tightening the skin and can be used anywhere in the face and body. Thermage is effective in the use of smoothing, contouring and body shaping. This treatment also improves skin tones and texture. Thermage uses Radiofrequency technology to safely heat the dead layers of skin stimulating existing collagen promoting new collagen growth for younger looking skin.
Thermage is usually a one off treatment although it may be repeated after two or three years for maximum results. Unlike laser treatments where the effects can be seen immediately, Thermage treatments take a while before the effects can be noticed. This begins around a month after treatment and the effect increases up to around six months at which time the skin achieves its maximum tightening.
Involved downtime – There is no downtime but requires a twilight anaesthetic for full face procedures.
