As we age, our skin can become loose and start to sag. Fine lines and wrinkles can begin to appear and cause us to look older. This doesn’t just occur on the face but all areas of our body and no exercise in the world can’t tighten loose skin.
In the past, people turned to tummy tucks and facelifts to tighten their skin. These drastic procedures are no longer necessary thanks to Thermage, a unique radiofrequency therapy that effectively tightens skin to deliver long-lasting results.
If you’ve noticed your skin isn’t as youthful and tight as it once was, then read on to learn all about how to tighten skin with this ground-breaking treatment.
What is Thermage Skin Tightening?
Thermage skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency technology to heat areas of your skin that are loose. The heat targets the collagen beneath the top layer of skin, stimulating more production of collagen. This occurs due to the heat separating water molecules from the collagen, which triggers a healing response in the body.
Thermage is painless and effective. The length of sessions depends on the area of skin being treated but should take no longer than 90 minutes. Patients will begin to notice results within a few months, and the effects can last for a couple of years.
What Areas Can You Treat?
One of the great things about Thermage is that it can treat many different areas of the body. If you have fine lines around your eyes or loose skin on your face, you can have Thermage treatment in these areas to reduce their appearance.
Thermage also works wonders on other parts of the body, including the arms, abdomen, buttock, thighs, and knees. The skin tightening treatment is suitable for both men and women and works for people of all ages. It’s also an excellent treatment for people who have lost weight but have some loose skin that they want to be tightened.
Benefits of Thermage VS Needles/Surgery
One reason people prefer Thermage to Botox or surgical procedures such as tummy tucks is that it is non-invasive. No needles or surgery are involved with Thermage, and there is little recovery time, unlike with surgery. You can get back to your usual daily routine the day after Thermage treatment and won’t experience any significant side effects afterward.
The treatment itself is also painless. While you’ll feel a warm sensation on your skin, the therapy employs pulsed radiofrequency to produce more comfort on the outer layer of skin and a cool feeling. Needle injections can often be painful, so Thermage is an excellent alternative if you have a low pain threshold.
The effects of Thermage are also more long-lasting than, say, Botox. While Botox users need to get regular top-ups every six months, Thermage skin tightening can last for up to 24 months.
Finally, and most importantly, Thermage is safe. Since it involves using heat on areas of the skin, there is no use of local or general anesthetics, usually involved in surgeries and which can be dangerous. Moreover, with Thermage, you are not injecting any foreign substances into your body, like Botox, which carries risks.
