How does Thermage skin tightening work?

Thermage treatment is a non-surgical alternate that effectively tightens the skin at various places all over the body, leaving you feeling younger and better-looking. To achieve this, it makes use of a radio frequency to reach to the deep layers of the skin (dermis), and creates a heating effect there. This gentle heating effect causes the existing collagen to tighten, while stimulating growth of new collagen. Collagen is a vital chemical that plays an important role in maintaining the health of the skin. This heating effect leads to a transformation of cells, starting from the bottom skin layers and extending to the top layer.

Thermage uses radiofrequency energy (RF) to heat up the deep layers of collagen which makes the body produce new volumes of collagen resulting in tightening of the skin and its rejuvenation. Thermage is a unique technology as it uses a smart Thermatip™ that uses the energy to treat problematic areas precisely, leaving the outer layer of the skin protected. The treatment typically lasts 30 min-2 hours (depending on the area to be treated). Our office offers patients simple analgesic to help relieve minor discomfort. There is no downtime after procedure, so you may return to work and your social life immediately.

Aging is a natural process that cannot be avoided. Many of us try different methods to stay looking younger for longer; however, many of the methods out there are not safe at all, while some do not deliver what they promise. There are surgical procedures that do show some improvements, but they have their own set of disadvantages and risks. Some people are simply not comfortable getting under the knife.

This procedure effectively lifts skin tissue, reduces wrinkles, and lifts eye brows, the cheeks and jaw line. All of this causes the appearance of a person to change for good – making them look younger. It can shape the whole body, or just the face as needed. What makes Thermage unique is its ability to treat only those areas that are affected by sagging skin.

A detailed outline of Thermage treatment can help you better understand what goes on:

  • Throughout the treatment, Thermage device monitors the skin’s temperature in order to protect the skin by applying a cooling spray at the start, during, and at the end of the application of heat.
  • A heating sensation and slight vibration is felt throughout the procedure, which indicates that the collagen is indeed reaching the ideal temperature needed for tightening.
  • A ThermaTip device is used to properly deliver heat to the underlying tissues of the skin.
  • Radio frequency is capable of reaching the deeper layers of the skin, and this is provided by the thermage laser.
  • As the procedure continues, the outer skin layers are cooled. This and the use of ThermaTip have made thermage face treatment almost completely pain-free.
  • The results are almost instant at the end of the procedure, leaving you excited and brimming with joy.

A typical Thermage treatment procedure in Portland OR takes an hour for facial treatments, and around an hour and half for body treatments. Also, Thermage cost varies according to the extent of the skin that needs treatment.

In fact, with time, as the new collagen starts to form as a result of this procedure, the skin gets better and better, leaving you and your friends surprised at your rejuvenated skin.
