The Procedure

How does it work?

  • The procedures are performed with the FDA-cleared Thermage® System
  • The tip on the device’s handpiece is pressed gently against your skin to deliver a pulse of radiofrequency (RF) energy.
  • Thermage treatments are typically 45 minutes for eyes or face and up to 90 minutes for larger body areas.
  • The tip cools and protects the epidermis while the energy penetrates deep into the skin to heat collagen fibers in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue.

Does it hurt?

  • When you feel the heat, you may experience some discomfort.
  • Heat is absolutely essential to tighten the collagen and stimulate new collagen growth. If you don’t feel the heat, the procedure isn’t working.
  • Together, we will find a heat level you can tolerate to minimize discomfort and achieve optimal results.

Is it safe?

Thermage is a safe, non-invasive procedure with a 99.8% safety record.
Potential side effects are generally mild and may include: 

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blisters
  • Bumps
  • Rare instances of surface irregularities

 Most side effects resolve without complication.

 

Is Thermage for You?

 What Will I Look like After the Pocedure?     

  • You should feel no pain or discomfort after the procedure. You may experience redness that will resolve within an hour or so, or slight swelling that will disappear within the day.   
  • You will be able to put on your make-up and continue your skincare regimen immediately after treatment.    
  • If you didn’t take any medication, you will be able to resume your normal routine right away.   
  • If you took medication with the treatment, you will need someone to drive you home.    
  • You should have a set of “After” photos taken so that you can see your immediate changes and how they improve over time.

Will Thermage work for me?

  • Thermage® works on all skin types
  • Everyone who has a Thermage procedure achieves healthier collagen.
  • The amount of visible improvement varies from subtle to dramatic.
    –      Subtle is some slight tightening and lifting with improvements in skin texture.
    –      Dramatic is very noticeable tightening and contouring and texture improvements.
 

Thermage Results

What do the results look like?

  • The effect is natural. At first, you may be the only one to notice the change. Your family and friends may remark that you look rested, or ask if you’ve lost weight.
  • As your skin improves over time, the changes will be gradual. You’ll see your full results at approximately 6 months.
  • We recommend you have good Before & After photos taken, so that you can see the progression.

Will I look like I’ve had surgery?

  • Thermage® does not offer the dramatic results of surgery.
  • Thermage results are subtle and natural looking without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.

How long do the results last?

  •  
    • Thermage procedures offer a long lasting result. Some patients have reported improvements lasting 2-3 years.
    • The duration depends on your skin condition, lifestyle and natural aging process.
    • It’s like setting the clock back, but not stopping the clock.
