What is Thermage?
Thermage skin treatments help smooth, tighten and contour skin with gradual, natural looking results, as opposed to the dramatic change that invasive surgery produces. So, rather than looking like you've had surgery, you'll look like you've been away on holiday, rested and rejuvenated. With Thermage treatments, there is NO surgery, NO injections, NO anesthesia and little to NO downtime.
How It Works
Thermage uses unique radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely heat the deep layers of your skin, this deep heating stimulates your body's natural skin renewal process, which helps tighten existing collagen and form new collagen.
Over time, sagging skin is replaced with smoother, tighter skin; improved tone and texture; and an overall younger looking appearance.
What Thermage Treats
Smoother, tighter facial skin with less sagging
Softening of fine lines around the eyes
Flatter, smoother skin on the tummy, knees, legs, arms, hands or buttocks
