Most people looking for a way to tighten the appearance of their skin think about the use of lasers, lotions or cosmetic surgery. However, there has been a skin tightening treatment available for several years that requires no downtime, virtually no pain, offers immediate improvement and long-lasting results; its name is “Thermage”.
When provided by a Thermage-certified provider in a medical environment, Thermage can effectively tighten and contour facial and neck skin. It differs from other skin tightening techniques in that it does not involve injections, lasers or invasive procedures. Instead, it delivers Captive Radiofrequency (CRF) energy deep beneath the skin that in a single treatment can tighten existing collagen, while stimulating new natural collagen production. Therefore, an immediate improvement is visible which continues to improve for up to six months. The effects of a single treatment can even last for years!
Unlike many skin-enhancing procedures, Thermage works on all types and colors of skins. And its safe. There have been over 190,000 patient treatments worldwide with less than 0.4% incidents of side effects; mostly swelling, redness, bumps and/or blisters.
You will want to consult with a dermatology office to find out if Thermage is the best solution for you. For every type of cosmetic treatment available there are advantages and disadvantages. It is best to make sure that your dermatologist is not only certified to provide Thermage, but also offers many other solutions that can meet your needs and your pocket book.
