Collagen is the building block that provides skin structure. Thermage uses targeted radiofrequency energy to heat deeper dermis layers of the skin to contract collagen proteins and stimulate further collagen production. At the same time, it has an integrated cooling system, where the tip of the Thermage handpiece vibrates and cools the skin’s surface to aid in patient comfort.
Treatment time: 30-90 minutes
Thermage can be considered a minimally-invasive alternative to surgical facelifts. However, it can be used to correct sagging skin on the body as well.
You may experience immediate results that will continue to improve over the next one to six months. Most patients experience optimal results by the six-month mark.
Thermage results can last between 1-2 years. After one treatment, the body continues to produce new collagen for six months.
Most patients require only one treatment session. However, some patients can opt to do two or three more treatments, approximately six months apart, for even better results.
Generally, Thermage treatments are recommended for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity, usually between 30-60 years old. However, it is possible for younger patients to undergo Thermage treatment as a preventative measure by maximising their collagen production.
Right after the treatment, you may experience minor redness and swelling. This is normal and will subside within 24 hours. You may return to your daily activities following the treatment.
