What is Thermage®?
Thermage®® is a non-invasive radio-frequency therapy that can address the look and feel of aging skin. Thermage®® treatments are customized to your needs, and typically have no downtime post procedure. You can go straight back to your daily routines. It’s a great solution if you want your skin to feel firmer and tighter but can’t afford a lot of time away from work or your social life. Thermage®® involves just one treatment and delivers a natural-looking result.
Thermage® is ideal for individuals with early signs of sagging skin (40s to late 60s depending on skin condition and overall health). Thermage® can firm up the skin and provide a modest lifting effect and will stimulate collagen and elastin production for months. It’s an excellent option for those seeking an anti-aging preventative treatment as well. A yearly Thermage® has been shown to significantly slow the appearance of aging.
How does it work?
Thermage® employs radiofrequency wave energy which is delivered deeper into the skin than laser. Its patented CPT (comfort pulse) technology provides cooling at the skin surface, vibration to distract the brain and optimized deep heating to tighten elastin/fibrin and collagen and stimulate new collagen production.
Thermage® does not provide facelift type results and it can be uncomfortable for some (but not nearly as uncomfortable as ultrasound – Ultherapy). ArtMed offers complementary ProNox® treatment if a client is finding the procedure uncomfortable. Discomfort varies considerably from person to person and many people find the procedure very tolerable. Certain areas of the face can be a little more sensitive (like bony areas). Thermage® is adjustable in its treatment level and if you’re uncomfortable reducing the treatment level will not affect your results (your comfortable treatment level is the right level to provide results for you).
Thermage® Eye is a wonderful option to treat early hooding and eyelid laxity and to lift the brows. It is one of the few energy-based technologies available in the aesthetic market that is safe to use in the delicate eye area. With no downtime and good results this can be an excellent option for the right candidates.
A consultation prior to Thermage® is always recommended. Our highly experienced medical laser technicians will be able to advise you as to whether you are a good candidate for Thermage® CPT treatment.
