Everyday, thousands of computer users will go online to get information about the Thermage Procedures for erasing fine lines and wrinkles on their bodies. Most inquires ask what Thermage is and does it work?
What is Thermage:
Thermage is gaining in popularity across the nation as the safe alternative to plastic surgery. Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that effectively eliminates subtle signs of aging in the face and around the neck, legs, tummy and buttocks and other body areas. It is FDA approved and the treatments are performed only by certified physicians, nationwide. During Thermage treatments, high levels of heat are applied to the different areas of the body using radio frequency energy, and during the heating process, collagen rebuilds itself and over time, tightens the skin and smoothes out lines and wrinkles. Just prior to a Thermage treatment, a topical anesthetic cream is applied to the area of treatment, and this numbs the skin so the patient does not feel any pain during the treatment. Anesthesia is usually not used during Thermage treatments. Most Thermage treatments last about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
The results of the thermage procedure will vary according to the patient’s skin and collagen fiber production. Patients who have healthier skin tend to experience more dramatic results. Over the months following the treatment, the patient’s skin should gradually improve. The gradual improvements are a result of the skin tissues healing with gradual collagen production.
