What is Thermage®?

Thermage® is a radiofrequency-based treatment that uses a special tip to deliver heat to cells deep in the dermis. During the treatment, the energy from the applicator stresses skin cells (similarly to how exercise stresses muscle fibers), causing them to go into “repair mode.” When they do, they begin fixing damage to their structures and churning out more collagen, a crucial component of healthy, younger-looking skin. Over time, the quality of the skin gradually improves. 

Immediately after treatment, you should be able to see some results. Skin looks tighter and firmer. Within a week or so, lines and wrinkles begin to fade. And after several months, the full effects become apparent. Skin in the target area looks refreshed, revitalized, and beautiful. 

How Long Will Thermage® Results Last?

The full benefits of Thermage® become apparent in around three to four months – roughly the length of time it takes for the skin to renew itself. The effects can persist for between one and two years after that, depending on your age and prior skin condition. 

Capital Laser & Skin Care patients can return to Drs. Tanzi, Shah, and Peters annually for top-up treatments to maintain the effects. Thermage® is more cost-effective than undergoing surgery.

Benefits of Thermage® Treatments

The benefits of getting Thermage® treatments at Capital Laser & Skin Care are considerable.

  • No surgery: Thermage® uses radiofrequency (RF) to stimulate the deepest layers of skin. Thus, it does not require any cuts or injections. 
  • Comfortable: Thermage® comes with integrated cooling with pulsed RF, enhancing your comfort as you undergo treatment
  • No downtime: Because Thermage® is entirely non-invasive, there’s no downtime. You’re free to return to your regular schedule immediately after your appointment. 
  • Long-lasting results: We recommend using Thermage® as part of an annual anti-aging plan. Results can actually improve over time. 
  • Multiple treatment areas: You can use Thermage® to target lines, wrinkles, and loose skin on the face and all over the body. It’s great for the area around the eyes, stomach, thighs, arms, and neck. 
  • Just one treatment: Thermage® is so potent you only need one 60 to 90-minute session to get the full benefits. There is no need to return to the clinic for follow-up treatment. 

Am I a Candidate for Thermage®?

Because Thermage® uses radiofrequency technology, it is suitable for the vast majority of patients. You should consider Thermage® if: 

  • You want to improve the overall quality of your skin
