Warmer days are quickly approaching! Are you on a mission to tighten and smooth your body before showing off your summer skin? Let us help with the Thermage body procedure! Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure for skin tightening and contouring that takes just one single treatment. Any area of the body can be safely treated - abdomen, legs, knees, buttocks, and arms. The little-to-no downtime following a Thermage procedure, allows most patients to immediately return to their regular activities.
Results vary from patient to patient, but everyone can expect some degree of tightening. Patients have reported the following:
Collagen is the protein in your skin that gives it firmness and tightness. As we get older, the collagen in our skin begins to break down, resulting in wrinkles and saggy skin. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat collagen fibers in the deep layer of skin called the dermis. This heat tightens your existing collagen while promoting new collagen production to give you that firmer and smoother appearance. Some improvement may be visible immediately, but maximum results are seen up to six months after a single treatment as the skin continues to gradually rebuild collagen. Results can last for years, but this depends on the starting condition of the skin, your age, your genetic aging process, and your lifestyle and skin care routine. The best candidates for Thermage are less than 65 years old, have mild to moderate skin laxity, and are within 15 pounds of their ideal body weight. You can get the most from your results by maintaining underlying muscle tone, refraining from tanning and smoking, and regularly using an exfoliating and nourishing body lotion to maintain the health of the skin and stimulate cellular turnover.
