Do you desire tighter, firmer, younger looking skin but don’t want to go the surgical route? A thermage face lift procedure may be your best bet. It’s the only non-invasive procedure that helps tighten and better skin in just one treatment!
How It Works
In just 45 minutes to an hour and a half, a thermage face lift uses radiofrequency to heat those areas deep beneath the skin that are rich in collagen. Existing collagen is tightened while new collagen is formed, tightening and rejuvenating the surface skin.
As the heat works its magic on those deep layers, the skin is also cooled throughout the procedure. You may feel a cooling sensation as the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) is cooled and keeps from overheating while remaining intact. This cooling also prevents swelling and pain that is often related to skin tightening procedures, making for a speedy recovery time – and immediate results that gradually get better over time as the collagen in your skin rebuilds itself.
Benefits and Possible Results
An added benefit of thermage is the fact that it can be used to enhance the appearance of other parts of the body; it isn’t limited to the face! You can safely treat your eyes, lips, hands, stomach area and even the buttocks with therm age skin tightening. It can also be used on persons of any skin color.
Once you’ve had a therm age procedure performed on your skin, you can expect to experience many benefits including:
• Softened fine lines and wrinkles
• Disappearance of under eye bags
• Temporarily reduced cellulite
• Defined lips and jaw line
• Higher eyebrows
• Reduction in acne
• Firmer skin
• Diminished fine lines
You may experience a burning sensation during or after the thermage face lift procedure and require the use of pain killers. Other complications -though rare- include peeling skin, scarring, blistering and redness.
The Cost of Thermage
What you will pay for your thermage skin tightening treatment will depend on the physician you use and where you have the treatment performed. In the United States, the cost typically ranges from $1000 to $5000 for a thermage face lift.
While the results of thermage may be very good, it is important to note that they are not nearly as dramatic as those seen after surgery. Some will see this as a bonus and others may not, but if you are seeking a subtle yet simply amazing change in your appearance, then the thermage face lift may be for you.
