Thermage – What to Expect
Obviously at Beautique Medical Spa we love ALL things anti-aging but one of our VERY favorite treatments is Thermage. Thermage is versatile and non-invasive which makes it a great solution for many skin elasticity issues. Like with all amazing things, understanding equals believing!
Thermage is a proven radio frequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. Benefits include the smoothing of wrinkly or uneven skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the face and body. Thermage radio frequency energy works with your body, remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want. Thermage treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective. Can we say, yes please!
Duration of Procedure: Thermage treatments take about 45-90 minutes depending on the area of the body. Eyes and face take a shorter amount of time and larger areas of the body take a little longer
Number of Treatments: After only one treatment you will see and feel results. However, treatments can be repeated every 6 months or yearly
Duration of Results: Most patients can see and feel the skin tighten shortly after the procedure – with a day. What’s better is results continue to improve for up to six months as your body regenerates new collagen. Contouring continues to improve also as the collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. And the very best part? Results can last years!
Comfort: Beautique Medical Spa has the latest CPT technology – it adds a gentle vibration sensation and interspersed cooling that enhance comfort during treatments. You will feel a mixture of cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. Throughout your procedure we will ask you for feedback on the level of heat sensation in order to help balance your comfort with maximum results. After treatment your skin may be slightly red but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically no down time.
What kind of results can I expect?
Results may vary based on age and collagen quality but many patients report the below results. Again, results begin to take shape shortly after treatment and continue to improve over time.
Eyes: Tightening of hooded eyelids, unfurrowed brow line, diminished crow’s feet, firmer skin and less bagging under the eyes
Face: Contoured jaw line and profile, less “turkey neck”, diminished laugh lines and jowls, firmer cheeks.
Body: Smoothing of bulging areas around the waist, tighter skin on back of arms, elimination of extra skin around the stomach, temporary elimination of cellulite dimples on the buttocks and thighs.
Thermage works great for women who have had children and need to tighten loose skin, people who have lost weight and still have extra skin, as well as individuals who have sagging skin from age and exposure to sun. As mentioned, the process is quick and non-invasive with long lasting results. The first step is to identify the areas of your body that you want to improve and then contact Beautique Medical Spa and schedule your consultation! We will even throw in a free gift, just mention this blog post.
