What is Thermage?
The Thermage® system is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that can help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance.. This is done into the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin.
How do I know if I am a Candidate?
Simply call our office at 315-299-5313 and make an appointment for a consultation so we can address your concerns, desired outcome, and general expectations. We can then discuss if Thermage is the best treatment for your skin tightening concerns.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Unlike many cosmetic procedures requiring multiple sessions, Thermage delivers results after a single treatment. Best of all, results continue to improve over time. Typically one treatment per year is recommended, and no more than every 6 months.
How Long do Results Last?
For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session and can last for 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and aging process.*
*Recommended by physicians as part of an annual skin rejuvenation maintenance program.
What Should I expect During Treatment?
The Thermage® system incorporates vibration on the face and body treatments, which has been shown to help aid in patient comfort. You’ll feel a brief heating sensation when the treatment device’s tip touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect your skin and minimize any discomfort. Some patients have temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually goes away within 24 hours. Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. No special care is required afterward, aside from basic skin maintenance and broad-spectrum sunscreens as part of a regular skincare regimen.
Anyone with any type of electronic devices on or within their bodies, can not have this treatment performed.
