Thermage is a deep heating technology that uses radiofrequency to heat the skin. The heat tightens collagen fibres and stimulates new collagen growth. The procedure is performed with the FDA-cleared Thermage system. The top on the device handpiece is pressed gently against the skin to deliver a pulse of radiofrequency (RF) energy. The tip cools and protects the epidermis while the energy penetrates deep into the skin to heat the collagen fibres in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue.
Thermage can effectively and safely treat all skin types and skin on most body parts, including the face, eyes, lips, stomach, arms, hands thighs and buttocks. Thermage can treat wrinkled, crepey, sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin (turkey neck) wrinkles and frown lines.
Visible results may be immediate, and they appear over time in the course of your body’s natural collagen rebuilding process. For most clients tightening and contouring appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session. Results can last year’s depending on your skin condition and ageing process.
Thermage is not painful, although when you feel the heat you may experience a degree of discomfort. Together, we will find a heat level that you can tolerate to minimise discomfort and achieve optimal results.
Thermage treatment delivers results in a single treatment for most patients. The average treatment time is approximately 40-90 minutes depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated.
Many clients will benefit from combining Thermage with other anti-ageing treatments, which Dr Alia Nasser will discuss with your during consultation.
