Do you remember when you were younger and just loved looking at pictures of yourself? You were so vibrant, healthy and attractive. Now, as the aging process has started to take effect, looking at pictures isn’t quite as enjoyable. Instead of seeing that perfect and polished image of yourself, you realize that the aging process is taking over. In some ways, it kind of feels as if your body has betrayed you. On the inside, you still feel young and vibrant. You know you have a lot of life left to live. But on the outside, your body is aging, and it seems like there’s nothing that you can do to stop it. Thankfully, there is much we can do to help ourselves look as good on the outside as we feel on the inside. Thermage® is one of the easiest ways to do this.
To date, there is nothing that a person can do to permanently slow down or reverse the aging process. It is a part of life. However, cosmetic medicine has gone a long way in helping people have at least a small measure of control over how they age. Thermage® has quickly grown in popularity as one of these anti-aging treatments.
What Is Thermage®?
This non-invasive treatment harnesses the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten up loose skin and improve the way it looks. This technology will heat up the dermis, encouraging your body to produce more collagen, the compound that your body uses to keep your skin firm and tight.
Treatment with Thermage® is relatively simple. The process involves passing a handheld device over your problem areas to deliver RF energy. In response, the skin heats up, tightens and produces more collagen. When the treatment is done, you will feel like your skin is tighter, and you can take years off your appearance.
The entire treatment process is relatively quick. Depending on how much of your face you want to treat, you should expect the treatment to take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. One of the best things about this treatment is that once it’s done, it is done. You won’t have to worry about extensive downtime. You can go right back to your treatment.
You are going to see some of the results from the treatment immediately after your treatment is done. However, you will get to enjoy the full results a few weeks to a few months after your treatment is finished. The results of this treatment are long-lasting; many people even see results that last as long as five years.
Thermage® is an excellent choice for those who are looking to increase collagen growth, make their appearance look fresher and tighten up loose skin.
