Thermarge (Non-Surgical Face Lift)

Thermage ?

Thermage  CPT is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy which remodels the collagen in order to tighten the skin, reduce the wrinkles, and alleviate other signs of aging. Thermage® treatments are customized to your needs, and typically require minimal recovery time. It is cost effective and saves a lot of time as the results can be achieved with single treatment session.

What is Thermage ?

Thermage® uses radio frequency energy to heat the deeper layers in the skin and thus stimulate collagen production and improve laxity in jowls, cheeks, neck, buttocks, extremities, abdomen, eye lids, hands and abdomen. Thermage® treatment can reduce visible signs of aging. By smoothing and contouring trouble areas of loose skin, Thermage® can help create a naturally younger appearance. Results show primarily as skin tightening rather than volumizing and can be first seen within days or weeks after treatment, and will typically continue to improve up to 3-6 months following the treatment.

Who is the ideally suitable candidate for the Thermage

  • Those person who have Laxity in jowls, abdomen, eye lids, hands and abdomen
  • Those person who have creasing around the nose, mouth, Cheek and neck
  • Those person who have Laxity in buttock
  • Those person who have Sagging and wrinkling abdomen
  • Those person who have Laxity in hands

The Thermage procedure appears to work best in people with thin faces who are just on the verge of considering cosmetic facial surgery. People with very loose skin, sagging jowls and a turkey gobbler may see little improvement after Thermage® and are better suited for cosmetic surgery. If surgery is not an option, then Thermage® may provide some improvements but expectations need to be managed. Thermage® works well on people with all skin types

Thermage Can be Used to Treat Various Areas

The Face & Neck – With age, the face and neck skin can sag, resulting in loose jowls, extra skin in the lower face & neck, and other undesirable signs of facial aging. Thermage tightens the facial and neck skin by remodeling collagen and stimulating new collagen formation, resulting in skin tightening. The results often look very natural since facial features are preserved and improved. With age, the brows can also drop, resulting in lower brows that can look angry, with crowding and extra skin on the upper eyelid. Thermage can be used to elevate the brows and rejuvenate the forehead.

The Eyes – Thermage can be used to treat the upper eye areas by shrinking the extra skin, resulting in a non-surgical improvement of the eyelids that preserves the natural look of the eyelid. Age, extra skin, hooding, and a lowered brow line can make us look worn-down, angry, or tired. In some patients, upper eyelid Thermage is often combined with forehead Thermage in order to raise the brows and shrink upper eyelid skin at the same time.

Abdomen – Weight loss, pregnancy, and aging can create loose skin around the abdominal areas. Thermage can be used to tighten mild to moderate degrees of abdominal skin looseness without the scars or downtime of abdominal surgery.

Arms and Legs – Loose skin around the hands, arms, elbows, knees, thighs, and buttocks can be unattractive, and Thermage can improve these issues without the scars or downtime of surgery. Thermage can also improve the appearance of cellulite.
