What is Thermage?
Thermage is a non-invasive firming and rejuvenating treatment of the skin of the face and body. During the procedure, radio waves are used to heat up the deep layers of the skin to high temperatures. This breaks the bonds in collagen structures and provokes the fibers to intensify regeneration. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and more elastic.
Thermage is used not only to get rid of wrinkles on the face and improve the overall shape. The treatment can also be used on other parts of the body to restore skin elasticity. Nevertheless, Thermage works best around the eyes, where it effectively reduces drooping eyelids, raises eyebrows, and smoothes Crow’s feet. What’s more, it also reduces bags under the eyes, which very often appear with age. Applied to the neck, it will reduce sagging skin and the double chin.
Curiously, Thermage can also be used in other parts of our body, such as elbows, arms, abdomen, buttocks. or legs. Those areas where there is sagging skin and lack of flexibility. After the treatment, the skin will become much firmer, denser, and cellulite-free.

How long does the effect last?
Thermage doesn’t need to be repeated, as the effects last for a very long time. The first changes are noticeable immediately after the procedure, but you have to wait a few months for the full effect. During this time, your body rebuilds collagen structures. The process usually takes from two to even six months. After this time, the improvement continues for the next few years.
Of course, the effects you will achieve often depend on the condition of the skin when it was subjected to the treatment. Individual characteristics of each person’s skin also play a big part.
How does Thermage work?
This method that uses high-frequency radio waves is especially recommended for people whose skin firmness has decreased and wrinkles have appeared. It’s most effective for those with mild to moderate changes. As aforementioned, it can help fight fine lines of wrinkles as well.
The heat coming from the device firms the collagen fibers that have been stretched over the years. This results in a mini lifting, so to speak. The eyelids are raised, the skin on the neck and décolleté is rejuvenated, and the shape of the face is softened. The treatment improves overall skin elasticity, like on the stomach or arms.
