ThermaFrax- 2 powerful treatments in one

ThermaFrax- 2 powerful treatments in one!

(Results vary by individual patient and  results cannot be guaranteed)

You’ve heard of the newest generation of Thermage for skin tightening AND you know about the amazing results that the Fraxel Dual can give. Well now we can combine the two, on the same day, for maximum impact! Thermage CPT tightens and Fraxel Dual smooths. The Thermafax is here!

What is involved?

We start with the Thermage CPT, which is now a very comfortable treatment. With a new, built-in vibration feature, Thermage CPT  makes the treatment a walk in the park. Using radio frequency technology to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, Thermage stimulates existing collagen and promotes new collagen growth. The Thermage CPT will improve your skin from one treatment that can last for years.

Once this procedure is complete, taking about an hour and a half, we apply numbing cream to your face, give you some medication and tuck you in for an hour to prepare you for the Fraxel. So far it sounds pretty easy …  right? Fraxel Dual uses fractionated laser to make microscopic perforations in your skin that heal quickly and resurface the skin over the next few months. After the Fraxel, you will need a ride home, as you will be somewhat groggy during and after the procedure.

You see, what we want to do is wake up your collagen in a big way and these two non-ablative treatments work together even more effectively than they would if you did them separately. It’s the inflammation caused by the Thermage and and micro laser wounds caused by the pixilated Fraxel that give your skin that ultimate push it needs to create healing and restructuring of the tissue.  This smooths and tightens the skin thereby softening lines.

All that in one trip, one day off and about 3-5 days of social downtime. This means you may need to wait a week before attending any big social events. Would you love to just watch your skin get better and better over the next 6 months…who wouldn’t?!
