Learn More About Thermage
Thermage is a deep heating technology that uses radiofrequency to heat the skin. The heat helps regenerate collagen fibers that have become loose and stretched out with age. The heat also stimulates new collagen growth to make your skin feel thicker and smoother over time.
The tip on the devices hand-piece is pressed gently against your skin to deliver a pulse of radio frequency (RF) energy. The tip cools and protects the epidermis while the energy penetrates deep into the skin to heat collagen fibers in the dermis and subcutaneous tissue. A temporary grid is applied to your face to help guide the technician where to treat; It is removed immediately after the procedure.
When you feel the heat, you may experience some discomfort. Heat is absolutely essential to tighten the collagen and stimulate new collagen growth. If you don’t feel the heat, the procedure is not working. Together, we will find a heat level you can tolerate to minimize discomfort and achieve optimal results.
To reduce the heat sensation, the tip has built-in cooling that is sprayed evenly over the surface of the skin. The hand-piece vibrates during the radiofrequency pulse, which is proven to reduce discomfort.
