Treatment for renovation of the skin
Thermage employs exclusive radiofrequency (RF) technology in order to safely heat up the deep layers of the skin, while simultaneously cooling the skin’s surface in order to keep it intact during the procedure.
It stimulates the skin’s natural rejuvenation process, helping to tighten the existing collagen and form new collagen. Over time, sagging and wrinkled skin is replaced by smoother and firmer skin with improved tone and texture and an overall more youthful appearance.
The topical application of an anaesthetic lotion such as EMLA, for 30-45 minutes, is necessary.
First, a return adhesive electrode should be placed on the back or thigh in order to close the radiofrequency circuit. A special lotion should also be applied to the face in order to better conduct the current to the skin. The patient will experience heat on the area where the pulse is delivered, a sensation that will increase as more pulses are delivered to the same area.
The treatment takes about 40 minutes.
The patient can resume normal activity immediately.
hould I follow any special skin care guidelines?
The only recommendation is the application of some type of serum or lotion containing Vitamin C that helps with collagen synthesis. The use of sunscreen is also recommended.
When will I see results?
After the first month you will start to see results, and these will progressively become more evident up until the sixth month after treatment. A Flash effect can be seen on the day of treatment, which will last for 24 hours and then return to its initial state.
