As we age, our facial tissues lose volume and sag. Traditionally, a surgical procedure is required by a plastic surgeon to pull or "lift" the tissues either upwards or backwards in order to achieve a more taut youthful appearance. The surgeon will skilfully hide his incision lines along the hairline or natural creases in our skin so that the scar is not obvious.
While this is still the most effective method, many patients seek less aggressive procedures, such as minimally invasive "thread-lifts" and non-surgical machine-based techniques with little or no downtime. The most popular such machines use high intensity focussed ultrasound (HIFU), radio-frequency (Thermage) or lasers with various wavelengths.,
Thermage® is a non-invasive therapy using radiofrequency (RF) to smoothen, tighten and contour skin for a more youthful appearance. No surgery or needles are required, and all it takes is a single session to achieve the desired skin rejuvenation effect which lasts for up to 12 months. There is no downtime though numbing cream is usually required for greater comfort during the procedure.
As we age, the collagen in our skin responsible for skin tone and texture breaks down resulting in sagging skin, furrows, grooves, fine lines and wrinkles. Thermage heats the deeper layers of skin stimulating the collagen and promoting new collagen growth over the next few months, firming our tissues and tightening our skin over time.
It is suitable for younger patients who want to maintain their skin or have a more defined contour, and as a complement to other skin resurfacing procedures. It is a quick and easy procedure with no down time, and gives a radiant afterglow, making it an ideal treatment before an important event. Although some results are visible in just one session, multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results and continued improvements.
THERMAGE® FOR BODY
Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the collagen in the skin in order to tighten it. It helps to improve sagging or loose skin and gives a smoother, sleeker and more youthful look and feel. Results come in two phases. You will see an almost immediate effect due to the applied energy, but the formation of new and tighter collagen which takes place over time will ensure a longer term effect of around 12 months. Latest developments include the patented Comfort Pulse Technology, which channels gentle vibrations, interspersed with cooling effects on the skin to reduce discomfort. There is little or no down-time.
