ThermageTM is a new way to look younger without undergoing plastic surgery. It uses a revolutionary technology that is clinically
proven to help lift, tighten and contour the skin as well as to soften wrinkles. ThermageTM is the only non-invasive treatment that
delivers tighter collagen (Collagen is the building block that provides structure to your skin). ThermageTM is incision-free, fast,
easy and requires no downtime and hence, no interruption to your daily activities.
ThermageTM has been approved by the FDA for the non-invasive treatment of facialwrinkles and rhytids. The procedure is safe and no
permanent side effects are attached to it. Patients can see and feel the difference immediately after the treatment as the skin become
tightened, smoother and more radiant. The skin will gradually show a tightening improvement 1 to 3 months after a ThermageTM treatment.
What is the ThermageTM procedure?
procedure employs a patented radiofrequency (RF) technology called
. It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to
smooth out wrinkles and renew facial contours. The incision-free procedure is
fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities. Unlike lasers,
the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin types. The ThermaCoolTM
has been cleared by the FDA for the non-invasive treatment of facial wrinkles
How does it work?
device uses a sophisticated treatment tip called ThermaTipTM
, which delivers a controlled amount of RF energy. With
each touch to the skin, the ThermaTipTM
device uniformly heats a large volume of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin and its
underlying tissue while simultaneously protecting the outer layer of the skin with cooling. This deep uniform heating action causes
deep structures in your skin to immediately tighten. Over time, new and re-modeled collagen is produced to further tighten skin,
resulting in healthier, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance. ThermageTM
uses Radio Frequency energy to heat the under layer
of the skin concurrently cooling the outer layer. This heat will cause the collagen to contract and tighten, which helps to lifts
What does the ThermageTM procedure feel like?
With each touch of the ThermaTipTM
device, you will experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your
skin and underlying tissue. This deep heating sensation is your indication that your collagen is reaching effective temperatures
for tightening. The physician controls the amount of energy delivered to balance procedural comfort with maximum results. The
device is cooled before, during, and after heating to protect your skin and make the treatment more comfortable. Prior
to treatment, an anaesthetic cream may be applied to enhance your comfort. Additionally, your physician may also prescribe relaxants
and/or pain medication.
