What is Thermage?

How does Thermage Work?
Areas Treated With Thermage
Improved patient comfort allows for greater delivery of skin firming energy to all areas treated, including:
The Thermage Treatment
During treatment, individuals may experience tolerable sensations of warmth, followed by a cool spritzing that is delivered by the unit’s hand piece before, during and after the treatment tip makes contact with the skin. The treatment generally takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.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.
Recovery After Skin Tightening
Following the treatment, most individuals return to their regular daily activities. Some may experience mild to moderate skin flushing, which usually subsides within an hour. Most individuals feel a slight aching along the treated area that doesn’t necessitate any type of pain medication. There is no special care needed after treatment, but an effective sunscreen is recommended to prolong the result.Results are long lasting, up to two years or more in some cases and can be seen within two months with continued improvement over four to six months.*
Eyes by Thermage
Performed in Pittsburgh, Thermage skin tightening treatment for the eyes tightens surrounding eye tissue, giving the eyes a brighter, more refreshed appearance.During a Thermage facial treatment for the eyes, a fine treatment tip is used to deliver heat energy to the surrounding eye tissue. The greater the energy, the better the results. To help counter the warm sensation during treatment, comfort pulsed technology (CPT) is used to deliver a gentle vibrating sensation with cool bursts of air to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
