Aging causes the skin on your face and neck to sag. Creases appear on your forehead, and wrinkles and depressions develop near your eyes and on your cheeks due to a lack of collagen.

Today, there’s a myriad of non-invasive treatments for facial contouring, skin tightening, and restructuring. Thermage is one of these treatments and is quickly gaining popularity.

What Is Thermage?

Thermage is a skin-tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate the production of collagen. It heats the skin in the area it is targeting, stimulating the production of new collagen. Collagen helps maintain the elasticity and tone of the skin.

The Thermage procedure can make your eyes look less tired, help your cheeks appear firmer, and improve the contours of your jawline by tightening loose skin.

Body Parts That Can Be Treated with Thermage

Thermage can address loose skin naturally all over the body. However, there are some areas of the body where skin tightening with Thermage is most effective:

Face: Sagging skin and wrinkles are the prominent signs of aging. Thermage can fight loose skin by remodeling collagen, which in turn will aid in smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles.

Eyes: Due to most people’s busy and stressful lifestyle, even young men and women have furrowed brows and fine lines. These can make them look older and haggard. Thermage can get rid of these aging signs by tightening the skin around the upper and lower eyelids.

Buttocks, Abdomen, Thighs, and Hips: Loose skin on the buttocks, unwanted bulges on the hips, and sagging skin on the abdomen can be embarrassing. Thermage is a non-invasive way to smooth out and tighten the skin in these areas naturally.

Types of Thermage Procedures

There are two types of Thermage treatments:

Superficial Thermage Procedure: Superficial treatments are usually performed on the areas around the eyelids, face, and neck.

Deeper Thermage Procedure: Deeper treatments are usually reserved for body contouring. The areas treated include the arms, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.

Why Should You Choose Thermage Skin Tightening?

The Thermage procedure delivers natural results within a single session. The treatment is not only non-invasive but also has been clinically proven to be quite very safe.

Little to no downtime is needed, so you can resume your social and professional life very soon afterwards. Thermage not only addresses the signs of aging on the face but also in other body parts. It can also reduce cellulite to a certain extent.

When Can One See the Results of Thermage Skin Tightening?

For some, results are visible immediately. However, it takes around two to six months for the body to rebuild its natural collagen. After this time, the skin will look tight and youthful.

Some patients may witness swelling and redness in the targeted areas. The redness disappears after a few hours, while the swelling may take a few days to resolve. However, there will be no pain or bruising after this procedure.
