Thermage Treatments

Thermage Treatments

What It Is

Thermage skin tightening is a cutting-edge, non-invasive, and non-surgical treatment trusted by dermatologists around the globe. Almost immediately after treatment, the loose and saggy skin will begin to be gently tightened and lifted with Thermage radio frequency waves. These effects will continue to gradually improve for several months following your treatment as a result of the stimulation of natural collagen production in the skin. This will result in enhanced skin tone and texture that will contribute to a contoured, youthful appearance.

One of the major advantages of a Thermage skin tightening treatment is that your results will continue to improve and increase in noticeability over time. Because the results and its effects are so subtle and gradual, no one will be able to detect or know that you underwent a cosmetic procedure.

Treatment Areas

Thermage skin tightening treatments can be completed on many areas of the body such as the face, including the eyelids, lips, neck, hands, arms, and neck. Because there is no downtime associated with this procedure, patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following their treatment and do not need to stay out of the sun.

How to Prepare

Thermage is performed in a single treatment. Downtime is minimal as there is no bruising or swelling. You can wear make-up and return to your regular routine soon after your procedure. The positive effects of Thermage continue to improve for up to six months and can last for years.

How It Works

A monopolar radiofrequency device is used to contour and tighten the skin during the Thermage skin tightening treatment. By delivering direct heat into the skin, radio frequency tightens existing collagen in deep layers of the skin and encourages the production of new collagen on a long-term basis. This will enhance your natural skin tone and texture, without the need for incisions or significant periods of downtime. This skin tightening procedure has zero downtime associated with it and the results are noticeable after a single treatment. Thermage will also stimulate new collagen production over the course of several months.

Results

With no surgery, incisions, injections, or downtime, Thermage skin tightening produces results that smooth, tighten, and contour your facial skin to turn back the clock on your appearance. The Thermage treatment usually produces results after a single session and produces results immediately following treatment that continue to improve over time.

Thermage skin tightening is a wonderful option for those seeking facial rejuvenation. As we age, the natural collagen in our body begins to break down and decline in production. Areas of our face will begin to sag due to a loss of skin elasticity and lines and wrinkles will begin to form. Thermage skin tightening treatments are a great way to fight aging signs as Thermage not only tightens the existing collagen in the skin but also stimulates the skin to produce more of it. Because of this, Thermage skin tightening is a fantastic way to rejuvenate and replenish the skin.

Many of us do not want to wait until we are ready for a facelift to treat mild sagging and drooping of our skin. For others, cosmetic surgery is simply not an option. The skin tightening results of Thermage are natural and subtle. Many patients have noticed:

  • Younger looking, more lifted eyes
  • Softened fine lines and crow’s feet
  • Smoother, more defined lips
  • Improved definition of jaw line
  • Less visible laugh lines

At McLean Clinic, Thermage skin tightening can also be used to rejuvenate the area around the lips and mouth. Due to the collagen stimulating effects of the procedure, it is ideal for enhancing volume and lift the area that surrounds the lips.

Regardless of the part of the body being treated by Thermage, patients can expect tightening effects as a result of collagen production and stimulation. Results will vary from patient to patient and can range from subtle to dramatic depending on the condition of the skin, patient lifestyle, and the number of procedures completed. Most patients observe immediate results that continue to improve up to 6 months as the new collagen forms from the inside-out. Thermage is suitable for all skin types and can be performed year round. You do not have to avoid the sun as with laser treatments.

Improving your skin’s health can involve a variety of approaches. During your complimentary consultation, our Skin Care Specialist will design an individual skin rejuvenating program tailored to meet your specific needs and budget.

Aftercare and Recovery

The Thermage skin tightening procedure is non-invasive and has zero downtime associated with it, and therefore does not carry the same associated risks as surgery and other semi-invasive cosmetic procedures. Because the procedure does not require any post-procedural care, patients are able to return to work and their normal activities immediately after their session.

Potential Complications

Thermage skin tightening is a very safe, gentle, and non-invasive treatment that has very minor side effects and low risk for complications. In some cases, patients may experience mild redness that usually resolves on its own very quickly. Side effects are rare and usually mild and may include swelling, redness, bumps, and blisters. During your consultation, the McLean Clinic team will provide guidelines and instructions for pre and post-treatment to ensure your risk for complications are minimized.

Myths and Facts

There are common misconceptions that cosmetic treatments such as lasers and peels are able to contour the face. While they do work to improve the appearance of the skin, they do not tighten or treat the underlying structure of the skin the way that Thermage skin tightening treatments can. Thermage treatments can stimulate the natural production of collagen after a single treatment, which can be observed immediately after treatment. Your results will continue to improve over a course of up to 6 months to produce long-term results and enhance your facial contour.
