Thermage for Skin Tightening

What is the Thermage non-surgical skin tightening procedure?

Thermage is a safe, non-invasive, no downtime, and single treatment, cosmetic procedure that is clinically proven to tighten, contour and rejuvenate skin to help restore a more youthful appearance. It is cleared by FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles. It utilizes a unique form of Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new natural collagen production. The Thermage procedure is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities. The procedure can be performed on patients of all skin colours.

How does the Thermage procedure work?

The procedure works by heating deep collagen fibres in the skin and underlying tissue, while protecting the skin's surface with a cooling spray. A handheld device briefly touches the skin, delivering the non-invasive CRF energy deep beneath the skin. This deep uniform heating action causes the deep structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten. Moreover new and remodelled collagen is produced to further tighten the skin and renew facial contours over the next few months.

Who will benefit from the Thermage procedure?

Those who wish to forestall a surgical facelift or surgical brow lift can accomplish a good degree of skin tightening using Thermage. Those who want to tighten abdominal skin can likewise undergo this procedure. Thermage is not meant to replace a more aggressive surgical procedure. However it is an ideal alternative for the younger person who is just beginning to see some jowls, drooping of their eyelids and eyebrows, or hanging skin elsewhere on the body.

How long does the Thermage procedure take?

Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure may take as little as 30 minutes or up to two hours.

How many treatments will I need?

Unlike many laser procedures requiring four or more sessions, a single Thermage treatment produces results in the majority of patients. Your doctor will determine the course of treatment that is right for you, based on your needs and goals.

When will I see results?

Measurable tightening and contouring improvements appear gradually over a two to six-month time period following a single treatment session.

What does the Thermage procedure feel like?

An anaesthetic cream may be applied to your skin one hour prior to treatment. You will experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the energy is delivered to the skin. This deep heating sensation is an indication that collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening. To protect the skin and make the treatment more comfortable, the surface of the skin is cooled simultaneously. Your feedback on the level of heat sensation experienced during the procedure will help guide your doctor to balance procedural comfort with maximum results.

Is there any special preparation or follow-up regime?

No. Unlike surgery, there is no pre-procedure preparation, such as blood test or fasting required. One can return to regular activities immediately following treatment and there is no special care needed after treatment. You may exhibit temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually resolves within 24 hours. Good skin care and sunscreens are recommended as part of your regular skin care regimen.

Is the Thermage procedure safe?

The Thermage procedure has an excellent safety record. With over 190,000 estimated worldwide patient treatments to date, the reported incidence of side effects is less than 0.4%. The most frequently reported incidents are classified as swelling, redness, bumps, and blisters on or around the treated area. These side effects would disappear in a few days or weeks. A rare (0.11%) but longer lasting side effect described as a surface irregularity has also been reported. Consult with your physician regarding this and any other questions you may have on the safety record of the Thermage procedure.

How long will the effects of the Thermage procedure last?

The Thermage procedure immediately tightens existing collagen and stimulates new natural collagen production for up to six months following the treatment. Unpublished reports by experienced cosmetic doctors indicate that results may last for years and are based on the patient's natural aging process.
