As you age, your skin slowly becomes looser and even saggy, in places. If you spend a lot of time in the sun or under tanning lights, your skin can age even faster, robbing you of your youthful good looks.
While there are many treatments available to alleviate loose, sagging, and aging skin, few are safer, more effective, or more affordable than the Thermage skin tightening system. Here’s how it works and can help you.
Precision Radiofrequency Treatment
Thermage utilizes completely safe and painless radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift your skin, while maintaining your natural good looks. Dr. Parvin Mani will use a precision instrument to gently apply the radiofrequency treatment to very precise locations. The radiofrequency energy heats the deeper tissue in your skin, altering and tightening it, yet, the Thermage instrument remains cool to the touch. Each treatment lasts about 30 minutes to an hour and promotes the natural production of collagen over time, making your skin more vibrant, as well as tighter and more youthful looking.
Among the Safest of Cosmetic Procedures
Because it uses radiofrequency instead of a scalpel, chemicals, or anything else that cuts or damages the skin, the Thermage treatment is among the safest available. There is virtually no chance of infection, improper incisions, nerve damage, or other problems that can arise from surgical and other alternatives for treating the same skin conditions. The FDA has approved its use, and you can get great, long-lasting results in just one or two short treatments, particularly when performed by a skilled and experienced professional like Dr. Mani.
Conditions Treated with Thermage
The Thermage radiofrequency treatment can improve baggy eyes, loose jowls, sagging chins, and sagging or bulging skin nearly anywhere on your body. Among the most common procedures is tightening facial skin, particularly around the cheeks, jowls, and chin.
If your eyes are saggy and look baggy, the radiofrequency treatment can help without requiring surgery. The system can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, lift your facial skin, and help you to lose unwanted saggy skin left over after you have lost weight through dieting or giving birth to a child.
No Downtime for Recovery
When you are done with your treatment, you won’t feel sore, have to eat any special diets, or take time off work or other activities. The FDA-approved system typically only produces some minor redness that usually goes away within hours, and generally does not irritate your skin.
Most skin conditions require no more than one or two treatments, and results can last for years. Because there is little to no irritation to the skin, treatments can occur as frequently as your doctor determines necessary.
When you undergo Thermage treatment, it will take up to six months for the best results to reveal themselves. That’s because it takes time for your skin’s increased collagen production to have its full effect. You might see optimal results in as little as two months, and in some instances, even sooner.
Your doctor can help you to determine if additional treatments are needed, which is why it is best to wait at least a couple months between treatments. Once you have obtained your best results, they can last for several years, which makes the radiofrequency treatment one of the most cost-effective, as well as effective.
