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.
