How Does Thermage Work?
When searching for a way to get tighter skin, there is no shortage of options to choose from. Several non-invasive treatments offer to tighten your skin and give it a vibrant glow. One of the top treatments available for your skin is Thermage®, and it delivers reliable results. The procedure is effective because it uses heat to penetrate your deepest layers of skin.
The heat reacts with your epidermis and causes existing collagen to tighten, and it also encourages your skin to create new collagen. When the procedure is finished, you can start enjoying a vibrant, youthful appearance.
How Thermage® Affects Your Skin
Since this is a non-surgical procedure, you can avoid the risks associated with traditional surgery. There is no downtime, and Thermage® has been shown to contour, tone, firm and tighten skin. It also offers a rejuvenating effect and makes your skin look younger.
During the procedure, a special machine is used to heat the collagen fibers within your skin. Once the heat from the machine reaches your underlying tissue, it causes positive reactions and encourages the growth of new collagen. Meanwhile, the surface of your skin is constantly cooled.
The tip of the applicator gently touches your skin and delivers non-invasive radiofrequency energy into your body. The deep heat tells your skin to remodel existing collagen and create new cells. Clinical research shows that Thermage® might also deliver immediate skin tightening.
After the procedure, your skin will improve over time. One of the main problems that Thermage® corrects is loose collagen stands. As your body ages, collagen strands become loose and unable to hold up your skin. By penetrating the collagen strands, this treatment can stimulate the strands and remodel them. Once they’ve been tightened, the collagen strands will be able to lift your skin and deliver an improved appearance.
The Results and Benefits
The results from Thermage® will help to tighten your skin for several months after the treatment. In most cases, the full results can last for up to six months. The final results from the procedure look more natural than what you’d get from many alternative treatments.
One of the greatest benefits of Thermage® is the lack of downtime, and sine it’s a one-time treatment, you can get it once and continue to enjoy the results. Many patients have called Thermage® the non-surgical facelift because it provides similar results.
If you’re thinking about undergoing this procedure, you should know that it offers a significant boost in confidence. Thermage® is very effective for keeping collagen active, and it can be used on many different areas of the body.
