Thermage

Thermage®

Non-Surgical skin tightening system

As people age, their skin loses its tightness and may begin to sag or become loose. Collagen is the protein naturally found in the skin that keeps the skin tight and smooth. Over time, the natural aging process and sun exposure causes the skin to break down collagen faster than the body can replace it. The more collagen your body produces the tighter, smoother and more youthful looking the skin appears.

For patients seeking a non-surgical alternative to a facelift or body lift, Thermage® can be an effective way to tighten the skin without surgery scars or a prolonged recovery time. Most patients experience little or no down time, and no anesthesia is needed. Generally, patients return to work or to normal activity the same day. Results can be achieved in as little as one treatment. Results tend to be more subtle than with cosmetic surgery procedures.

Where Can the Thermage® Skin Tightening System Be Used?

Thermage®, FDA cleared ThermaCool™ system is effective for the following face, neck and body areas:

  • Eyes – Thermage® treats the upper and lower eyelids to reduce eyelid hooding and fine lines.
  • Face and Neck – Thermage® is effective in smoothening lines and wrinkles and replenishes collagen to tighten up sagging face and neck skin.
  • Body – Thermage® can be effective on the neck, arms, abdomen, and inner thighs. Specifically, areas that may need additional skin tightening after liposuction.

What is Thermage® and the NEW Thermage® Total Tip System?

Thermage® stimulates collagen production to help tighten the skin.

Thermage® is a skin-tightening technique designed to stimulate the skin to regenerate collagen. The device applies radio frequency energy to the body. The energy heats the collagen naturally found in skin and causes the cells to reorganize and rejuvenate, causing the skin to tighten.

At Expert Liposuction, Dr. David Amron, utilizes the Thermage® Total Tip, an effective treatment tip for the face, neck (jowls) and specific areas of the body. The Thermage® Total Tip system is especially effective for facial treatments because delivers uniform, volumetric bulk heat, resulting in better outcomes and improved patient comfort.

Thermage® is nonsurgical and requires no injections. The radio frequency device is applied externally to the skin, but the heating effect penetrates through the epidermis to the subcutaneous tissue. The epidermis, or outer skin, is cooled by the radio frequency device. The penetrating radio frequency energy acts on the collagen to tighten the underlying layers of skin to cause a rejuvenating effect on the surface. Thermage® is safe for ALL skin types. 

Is Thermage® a Replacement for Liposuction?

Dr. David Amron advises his patient that Thermage® is not a replacement for liposuction, and it cannot achieve fat reduction or weight loss. This technique is intended to improve the skin’s elasticity and tone. It can be a helpful addition to liposuction or another fat reduction procedure since the removal of fat may cause the skin to become loose.

What are the Benefits of Thermage®?

Patients can see positive results from Thermage® after a single treatment. Thermage® is a non-invasive, clinically proven safe cosmetic treatment with little to no downtime.  The Thermage® Thermal Tip® dispenses targeted uniform heat with early and long-term results. Thermage® can help address the signs of aging on the face and tighten skin in many areas of the body.

What does Thermage® Cost?
