What is thermage and is it worth it?

By autmn blakeman 17th December 2012 Category: Advice

The ageing process is something which catches up with us all, but is it possible to keep old father’s time effects on the skin at bay or even reverse the damage that has already been done? Yes! It’s called Thermage – one of the best skin care treatments money can buy.

Treat Yourself to Thermage

It’s a scientific fact that the unique radio-frequency treatment that Thermage provides can not only tighten loose or sagging skin but as any dermatologist will tell you, it can give you a much healthier, sleeker, smoother and youthful appearance.

How Does Thermage work?

Thermage works in just one treatment and delivers a change that is natural but not drastic. It’s a treatment that can be tailored to meet your needs, and it requires minimal recovery time. The dermatologist treats skin with an advanced radio-frequency device called ThermaCool TC, which delivers deep intense heat without the need for incisions. The Thermage procedure leaves the epidermis undamaged as it penetrates deep within to tighten the collagen, erase the wrinkles and give your skin a healthy and youthful glow.

Why is Thermage so Popular?

Thermage reduces hooding and fine lines on the upper and lower eyelids, smoothes lines on the face, defines the jawline and lip, and can rectify the common problem of ‘turkey neck’. Best of all the procedure is painless and very, very safe. It only takes an hour or so to complete and unlike other major surgery it is not invasive and you can return to normal activities immediately. Results are almost instant, but usually, a two to six-month time-frame is required to appreciate the full results. The effects usually last up to 18 months, so as you can appreciate, the initial layout for a Thermage treatment is well worth the investment.
