Face Treatments & Procedures

Thermage Pittsburgh, PA

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 Non-Surgical Face Lift:

• Softens Facial Folds, Fine Lines and Wrinkles

• Redefines Contours along the Jaw Line

• Gently Lifts the Forehead

• Smoothes Crepe-Like Skin

• Diminishes Fine Lines Around the Mouth

• Lifts and Tightens Skin

FDA-approved Thermage 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.

 

Treatment Information

Performed in all three of our med spa locations in Pittsburgh, Thermage is one of the few anti-aging skin treatments that offers skin tightening and toning without surgery. 

A Thermage 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 the treatment wand. 

The warming sensation experienced during a Thermage 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

What kind of result can I expect from a Thermage non-surgical face lift treatment?
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 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 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.
How is Thermage CPT System different than Thermage skin tightening?
The newer Thermage CPT System volumetrically heats the deep layers of the skin, while cooling the epidermis to non-invasively smooth, tighten and contour skin in a single treatment. This proprietary CPT, or Comfort Pulse Technology, allows for the delivery of more therapeutic heat energy more comfortably than in prior systems, offering patients better results.
Can Thermage CPT be used on other areas of the body? Or just the face?
Thermage Skin Tightening technology can be performed on the eye area to lift, tighten and tone hooded or drooping eyelids and on the body to tighten and tone loose skin on the abdomen, knees, arms and thighs. • Eyes by Thermage® • Body by Thermage®
