Preparing for your dream wedding When I got engaged 13 years ago, this feeling of panic set as I stressed about how to look my best in a wedding gown. I had 6 months to prepare and really had no idea what to do other than join a gym, enrol in body pump and spin […]
Thermage is a non-surgical way to tighten the skin.
Thermage utilises radio frequency technology to tighten skin that has become saggy or loose with time and stress. This treatment can be used anywhere on the body including the abdomen, legs and face. These are popular areas for treatment as they generally suffer from loose skin due to ageing or weight loss.
Previously people interested in skin tightening would have had to resort to extreme surgical face lifts or surgeries like abdominoplasty. While these surgeries can achieve impressive results they also require time off work, pain medication and bed rest which is why many patients prefer Thermage. Dr Anh believes that as long as individuals are close to their goal weight with a reasonable amount of loose skin then Thermage should work for them. This is why Thermage is ideal for women post-pregnancy and after minor weight loss.
It’s important to also note that Thermage is not suitable for individuals that have previously suffered from obesity or undergone gastric bypass surgery and achieved significant weight loss. The excess skin in these cases is generally too excessive to treat with Thermage alone. If you are unsure if you are the right candidate for Thermage please contact Dr Anh today and she will assess your condition during your consultation.
Many patients choose to undergo Thermage in place of a traditional surgical face lift. Thermage can help treat common signs of ageing including:
- Crêpey wrinkled skin
- Loose skin around the eyes
- Sagging areas around the jowls or décolletage
Thermage can be combined with other treatments for a full facial makeover such as anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers to improve the appearance of the lips as well as the skin. If you are also concerned about freckles and deep wrinkles then you may also benefit from our Fraxel laser treatment. Book a consultation to discover how we can help improve the appearance of your face and body.
If you have noticed your skin starting to sag but don’t want, or need surgery, this may be the perfect treatment for you. This treatment is perfect for busy individuals who do not have the spare time for laser treatments that require regular visits. As Thermage only requires one appointment, with the effects developing over the ensuing six months, it’s ideal for patients with busy lifestyles.
Thermage utilises patented radio frequency technology to safely treat the surface of your skin with heat. This induces collagen synthesis which promotes younger looking skin.
The results of Thermage will continue to develop over the ensuing months after treatment. Your final results can be seen after six months. The length of time this treatment lasts depends on how you care for your skin in the sun, your skin regime and your skin type. Many patients experience the results of their Thermage treatment for years.
