Success with Thermage
Understand the process.
Thermage treatments use a device that tightens skin on your face and body without making any incisions or using lasers. Rather, the device emits pulses that heat the skin, causing it to contract.
Contact Beautique Medical Spa to learn if Thermage is right for your needs.
Dr. Sanchez or any of our experts can explain all aspects of the procedure and will also be able to do an evaluation to determine if treatment is right for you.
What to expect during your Thermage treatment.
If you’re worried about pain (which is minor), the doctor can apply an anesthetic lotion to the treatment area or prescribe oral pain relievers. During the procedure, you’ll most likely feel cold and warm sensations with each pulse. You may experience some tenderness, redness or swelling in the treatment area afterwards. You can find out more about what to expect in our previous blog post Thermage- What to Expect
Schedule enough time for your treatment.
The length of the Thermage treatment will vary depending on the treated area. This means that, for some patients, a Thermage treatment only lasts a few minutes, while others may spend up to an hour with the doctor.
Most importantly, remember that your results will appear and improve gradually.
Although a lot of people notice improvement immediately after a Thermage treatment, the skin’s appearance continues to improve in the weeks and months that follow.
Wash that face!
No matter what type of treatments you have, it is always important to keep your face clean meaning pores free of dirt and makeup. Use a high quality face wash with gentle circular motions to improve blood circulation.
Use an antioxidant rich cream
like Mask Biotense by Nelly DeVuyst. Antioxidants prevent collagen from breaking down.
Use a good daily sunscreen
like SPF 30 Broad Spectrum Sunscreen by Nelly DeVuyst. We love the sun too, but the sun’s harmful rays wreak havoc on our skin and promote premature aging. Protect your skin!
Invest in a heavy duty nighttime moisturizer
and make sure it contains wrinkle-fighting ingredients – we recommend Lifecell Plus Mask by (you guessed it) Nelly DeVuyst.
Regularly exfoliating promotes cell turnover which generates new cells and brightens skin.
