Turn back the clock with Thermage

Posted by on 3 October 2016


Thanks to advancements in beauty treatments, it is now more possible than ever to take years off your appearance. The catch is that many treatments are invasive and require extensive downtime, which doesn’t suit all lifestyles. A facelift, for example, is a surgical procedure that usually requires at least two weeks of recovery time due to bruising and swelling. During this time, normal day-to- day activities such as driving have to be limited or stopped altogether.

At Gina’s, we believe in providing treatments that work for all lifestyles and
beauty goals, which is why we are proud to be the first spa in Waterloo Region to
offer Thermage to our clients.

What is Thermage?

Thermage is the perfect alternative to invasive procedures. It is a unique treatment that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to improve the look and feel of the skin by both lifting and tightening loose or sagging skin. It can be used to better define facial features by picking up drooping eyelids, jowls and skin on the neck, and it is also effective at smoothing wrinkly or uneven skin on both the face and the body.

Thermage delivers results in a single treatment - without surgery and without the need for downtime!

     

 

 

How does it work?

Our experienced aestheticians begin by cooling the skin before targeting problem areas with an FDA approved device (similar in appearance to a handheld massager). The tip of the device is gently pressed against the skin to deliver a pulse of radio frequency, which penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue to stimulate the collagen and promote collagen growth, leaving a youthful appearance. The pulses feel like a gentle heating sensation, interspersed with cooling bursts for comfort during treatment.


   

 

 

What are the benefits?

First and foremost, Thermage is a non-invasive procedure with a 99.8% safety record. Most of our clients feel no pain or discomfort after the treatment and are able to continue on with their day as normal, including applying make-up right away.  

Thermage can be used on both the face and the body, with results being noticeable right away, but not in a dramatic way like after a surgical procedure. Instead, the effects are natural and the skin continues to improve over time, with full results being achieved after approximately six months. We always recommend taking before and after pictures so you can keep track of the progression.

After treatment, it’s important to properly take care of the skin with products that moisturize and protect the skin. One product that compliments Thermage and also helps to fight the signs of aging is Diego Dalla Palma’s Youth Venom. Literally made from the venom of the Conus Seashell (but stripped of any toxic paralyzing components!), the serum is a potent smoothing formula that minimizes the signs of aging.
