The Thermage® Procedure is a revolutionary tissue tightening non-surgical face lift. Thermage® works by heating the underlying layers of the skin with a unique delivery of radio frequency (RF) energy, all the while protecting the skin's top layer with a cooling spray. The result is immediate collagen contraction, which, over time, will provide the skin with new collagen production.
Because the Thermage® Tissue Tightening Procedure is non-surgical there is no down time, no recovery time. You won't have to hide your face in bandages for several weeks after Thermage.
Collagen is to our skin what calcium is to our bones. It is our skin's support structure. Over time, collagen becomes depleted or damaged by the sun and other environmental factors, resulting in thin or loose skin. To counteract this, many opt for the traditional face lift, a process which literally picks the skin up and lifts it to give a tighter, more youthful appearance -- but this procedure does nothing to replace the skin's natural supply of collagen. Skin care experts have developed a non-surgical alternative to the traditional face lift.
If your skin is hanging around your eyes, jowls, neck, breasts or buttocks due to a loss of collagen you may qualify for this state-of-the-art procedure – cosmetic dermatology that is changing the way plastic surgery is performed.
