What is Thermage Face and Neck?
Thermage is an FDA-approved non-invasive, no downtime skin tightening procedure. Also known as the “non-surgical facelift”, Thermage delivers radiofrequency energy to all three layers of the skin to accelerate the body’s natural collagen building process. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and firmness due to natural aging, accumulated sun exposure, smoke, and many other environmental factors. With inadequate elasticity, our skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Thermage targets the collagen-producing layers in the skin to strengthen and restore the damage, creating tighter, smoother skin.

What does the Thermage application feel like?
The Thermage hand-piece contains a ThermaTip that delivers controlled dual heating and cooling to the skin. Most patients feel a brief deep-heat sensation as the RF waves are applied to the skin; this is when the existing collagen is being rejuvenated and new collagen growth begins. The ThermaTip then delivers a cooling effect with each pulse caused by Cryogen. In essence, Thermage for remedying the skin on the face and neck is safe, painless and comfortable!
