What is Thermage?
Thermage is a non-surgical way to tighten excess or sagging skin and restore a youthful appearance. The procedure can be used on the skin of the face or body, and it leaves no visible scars. There is almost no downtime after the procedure, and results are visible after only one treatment.
Thermage is an excellent way to treat:
- Loose skin on the face – such as jowls or sagging neck skin
- Reduce signs of aging
- Excess skin on the body after weight loss
How Does Thermage Work for Body Shaping?
Thermage uses a device that emits radiofrequency waves to stimulate the deep layers of the skin to produce more collagen. This allows the body to fill in sagging skin with its own natural collagen, restoring a youthful appearance. Your results with Thermage may be visible immediately, but they may also improve over time as your body continues to produce new collagen. There are no special preparations or pre-procedure tests as with surgical procedures.

Side Effects of Thermage
Some may experience mild swelling for a week after having Thermage, but many others experience no side effects. Results are often visible immediately, but as the treatment stimulates collagen production they may be more marked over time as the skin continues to produce more collagen. Results can last for years.
