Thermage® Non-Surgical Face Lift
Available in Pittsburgh, Thermage® Non-Surgical Face Lift is designed to tighten aging skin on the face, gently lift the forehead for a more rejuvenated appearance, and redefine the contours along the jaw line and under the chin with just one treatment and no downtime.
Benefits of the Thermage NonSurgical Face Lift:
FDA-approved Thermage skin tightening technology offers comfort pulse technology (CPT) and radiofrequency energy to warm and stimulate the fibroblasts in the dermis while keeping the skin's surface cool. The newer CPT technology combines a gentle vibration sensation with cooling bursts to make your Thermage experience as comfortable as possible. Thermage skin tightening treatment works by promoting the contraction of the existing collagen fibers and stimulating new collagen growth. The end result is a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance with no downtime.
Thermage Non-Surgical Face Lift Treatment
Performed in all three of our med spa locations in Pittsburgh, Thermage Non-Surgical Face Lift is one of the few anti-aging skin treatments that offers skin tightening and toning without surgery.
A Thermage skin tightening treatment is performed with a specially designed treatment wand that delivers a light, refreshing cooling burst and a gentle vibration to help balance the sensations of warmth delivered by treatment wand.
The warming sensation experienced during a Thermage skin tightening nonsurgical face lift treatment is the powerful radiofrequency energy that stimulates new collagen production and contracts the existing collagen fibers, resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
For enhanced comfort, a topical gel anesthetic may be applied to the face or a mild oral sedative may be taken prior to treatment to help ensure the experience is pleasant, and optimal skin tightening results are achieved. If an oral sedative will be administered, transportation home should be arranged.

FAQ's: Thermage Non-Surgical Face Lift
The degree of skin tightening varies from person to person. Age, skin condition and degree of skin laxity plays a role in the outcome. Some of individuals have seen improvement within two weeks with continued improvement over four to six months.
To date, some studies indicate that improvement lasts up to two years; other studies show that thermal collagen changes can last several years depending on the rate of the aging process. It is important to keep in mind that this treatment does not stop the aging process. Gravity will continue to take its toll on the skin, causing natural skin laxity over time.
Does the Thermage skin tightening technology treat age spots or other skin discoloration?
The Thermage CPT Nonsurgical Facelift is FDA-approved for skin tightening and is often performed in conjunction with Fraxel® Dual laser skin resurfacing to improve skin tone and texture and significantly lighten sun spots, age spots, dark patches and other types of hyperpigmentation.
Individuals who choose to have both the Thermage Nonsurgical Facelift and the Fraxel Dual treatments are generally very pleased with noticeable skin tightening and overall improvement in skin tone, skin texture and skin color.
