Thermage Skin Tightening Treatment
The board-certified plastic surgeons and other medical and health professionals at VIDA Wellness and Beauty offer an array of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic, health and wellness procedures. Patients can come in for a cosmetic treatment and stay for nutrition or mental health advice. At VIDA, our goal is to provide a one-stop shop for all your beauty, health and wellness needs.
One of the innovative nonsurgical cosmetic treatments we offer is Thermage skin-tightening treatment. With Thermage, patients can improve the look of wrinkles and rejuvenate their facial appearance without having facelift surgery! If you are frustrated by visible signs of aging that are making you look depressed, exhausted or older than your actual age, nonsurgical Thermage treatment may be the solution.
Why Thermage Treatment Becomes Necessary
As we age, the body gradually stops generating collagen, a protein that is essential for healthy, supple skin. Without a sufficient amount of collagen, the skin loses its elasticity and starts to sag. In addition, hereditary traits, environmental pollutants and certain lifestyle habits, such as sunbathing without proper SPF protection or smoking, can cause premature signs of aging to develop, including lax, sagging skin and wrinkles. To correct these aesthetic concerns, Thermage skin-tightening treatment may be necessary.
More About Thermage
Thermage is a safe, noninvasive way to tighten skin, with no downtime. The quick procedure allows you to come in for treatment during your lunch break and return to work looking reinvigorated and more youthful. In addition, unlike some other laser treatments, Thermage is safe for use on all types of skin.
What the Thermage Procedure Entails
The duration of Thermage treatment is between 20 minutes and two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients find that one treatment is sufficient to provide their desired aesthetic results, but your Thermage provider will help you formulate a treatment plan that is best for your unique needs.
Your Thermage technician applies a cooling spray to protect the skin, before the start of treatment as well as during and after each application. To start treatment, the Thermage provider applies the ThermaCool device with the ThermaTip to the treatment area, thereby delivering heat from radiofrequency (RF) energy to the tissue layers underneath the skin. The heat tightens the skin’s tissue fibers and stimulates the body’s latent collagen production, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin.
Immediately after treatment, you will start to notice the aesthetic benefits of Thermage. The rejuvenating results continue to improve for up to six months, as your body regenerates more skin-rejuvenating collagen.
Thermage Safety Facts
Thermage is FDA approved for use in tightening the skin. And again, unlike some laser procedures, it is safe on all skin types. Uncommon side effects include swelling, blisters, bumps and redness; however, these side effects are generally temporary and improve within a few weeks — if not days. Very rarely, some individuals may experience long-lasting surface abnormalities after the procedure, but the Thermage professionals at VIDA take every available precaution to minimize any treatment risks.
