Loose or sagging skin can make you look older, but fighting these signs of aging can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t know the best treatments. For instance, some people have heard about Thermage® skin tightening, but they know little about it. So, instead of relying on hearsay, here are a few things you should know about the treatment, and why you may want to consider it.
What is Thermage® Skin Tightening?
It is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that utilizes radiofrequency technology to remove wrinkles and fine lines and to tighten loose skin. The treatment was approved by the FDA in 2004, and it has improved significantly thanks to the advancement in technology.
How Thermage® Works
As we age, the skin loses its elasticity because collagen production declines. The effects of aging, sun damage, and environmental exposure kick in and make us appear tired, unhealthy or old. Thermage® skin tightening offers a solution to turn back that clock on the skin.
The treatment can stimulate the skin to produce new collagen. The radio waves heat up the collagen layer and trigger the body to rebuild it. As a result, more collagen is produced, and you have smoother, healthier and more youthful-looking skin.
The good news is that the treatment usually takes just minutes, depending on the target area. Most patients say the treatment has both cooling and warm sensations that are comfortable and relaxing.
Benefits of Thermage® Skin Tightening
Almost everyone can benefit from enhanced collagen production, but it can also be used to treat certain skin issues like wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, and more. If you’ve not considered the treatment, here are just some of the reasons to do so today.
After treatment, you may see a little redness, but it only lasts for hours. Since there is no set downtime, you can resume most all of your normal activities immediately.
Thermage® skin tightening offers some immediate results which improve with time, since collagen production continues way after the treatment session ends.
It causes no real discomfort apart from the redness that disappears after the treatment. Of course, discomfort levels vary from patient to patient.
