  • What is the Thermage® procedure?

    The Thermage® procedure employs a patented, FDA approved radio-frequency (RF) technology called ThermaCool. It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smooth out wrinkles and renew facial contours. The incision-free procedure is fast and easy, requiring no downtime from normal activities. It’s perfect for the treatment of the face and neck area, as well as the tightening of skin on the stomach, arms or other areas where tightening is desired.

  • What is the Thermacool™ device?

    The ThermaCool™ device uses a sophisticated treatment tip called ThermaTip™ to deliver a controlled amount of RF energy. With each touch to the skin, ThermaTip™ uniformly heats a large volume of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, while simultaneously protecting the outer layer of skin with cooling. This heating action causes deep structures in your skin to immediately tighten. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced, further tightening skin for a healthier, smoother, more youthful appearance.

  • What can I experience during and after treatment?

    The ThermaTip™ device delivers a brief, deep-heating sensation to your skin. The device is cooled before, during and after heating to further protect your skin surface. Post-treatment, studies show measurable tightening improvements appear over two to six months after a single treatment, and can last up to 24 months. For most patients, a single Thermage® treatment is sufficient, though your physician will help determine the right course of treatment for you.
