What is Thermage ®?

Thermage skin tightening technology uses radiofrequency energy that works beneath the skin’s surface to tighten skin and renew collagen – the protein responsible for skin tightness and structure. Many of the skin’s surface defects that appear with aging (e.g. sagging skin, fine facial lines and wrinkles) are a result of collagen breakdown and diminished production. Thermage improves existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth.

Am I a good candidate?

If your skin has visible signs of aging, such as sagging, wrinkles, fine lines, and bulges, you are a candidate for Thermage treatments. Frequently used to rejuvenate facial skin but it is also effective on other parts of the body, like the neck and abdomen. Thermage is not recommended for people who have cardiac pacemakers or other active medical implants.

Before the treatment

  • Have a light meal within an hour of arriving for your appointment.
  • Arrange for a ride home.

What happens during the treatment?

A vegetable dye grid is applied to treatment area before your Thermage CPT treatment begins. This guide helps the technician visualize the area, ensuring that skin is treated evenly. The grid is easily removed after the treatment. A coupling gel is applied to ensure complete contact between your skin and the Thermage treatment tip. The cooling and vibrating tip allows the delivery of more efficient energy into the skin while increasing your comfort.

Treatment time: 45-90 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated.

After the treatment

Because Thermage is non-surgical and non-invasive, most people can resume normal activities immediately after a treatment. Although there may be some minor swelling and pinkness, this usually subsides in a day and pinkness can easily be covered with foundation powder.

Post-treatment instructions:

  • Don’t make important decisions or sign legal documents during the rest of the day.
  • You may return to any normal activities and exercise the following day.
  • Because results rely on creating inflammation in the skin to stimulate collagen growth, it is important that you refrain from taking any anti-inflammatory products such as Advil, Voltaren, or ibuprofen.
  • Take Tylenol for any discomfort.
  • You may return to your regular skin care regime immediately as long as products don’t contain anti-inflammatory ingredients.
  • Avoid direct sunlight for 3 days after your treatment. Wear 50 SPF sunblock and protect the treated area by covering up or wearing a hat.

Recovery time: virtually no downtime. Post-treatment pinkness/swelling subsides in a day.
