In a recent article written by the Australian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), Dr Anh expresses that plastic surgeons are not solely responsible for body shaming issues. This article was written in response to the media frenzy about the issue of Specialist Plastic Surgeons’ social media being responsible for body image anxiety. In the […]
Thermage is a non-surgical way to tighten the skin.
Thermage is a treatment with many different uses including:
- Nonsurgical face, neck and eye lift treatment
- Non-surgical skin tightening for the abdomen after weight loss, having children and ageing
- Non-invasive treatment of cellulite
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.
It is a non-invasive radio frequency skin tightening treatment that can address the look and feel of ageing skin in many areas of the body or face. Due to the skin tightening properties of Thermage, it can decrease wrinkles, the appearance of stretched skin and fine lines. One of the most valuable benefits of Thermage is that you only require one treatment to make a significant difference. Dr Anh Nguyen offers the Thermage treatment at her Perth consulting rooms, where she offers caring female guidance for women who want to improve their appearance.
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.

Tightening for the abdomen with Thermage
Thermage is perfect for smoothing and tightening the skin on the legs, arms, hands, knees and tummy. Many patients have experienced significant improvement when it comes to the appearance of cellulite, wrinkles and very fine lines caused by stretched or sagging skin. The treatment works by stimulating existing collagen so that it can produce new collagen which makes the skin look tighter and younger.
Nonsurgical face, neck and eye lift treatment
Thermage can be a great treatment for the décolletage and facial area as this is where loose skin becomes the most obvious. Patients who need to tighten the skin around the jaw line and jowls experience significant improvement as this can redefine the shape of their face. Wrinkled and loose skin around the eyes and cheeks that can appear crêpey may also have significant changes, with decreased wrinkles and a more youthful appearance.
The area on top of the eye is also one of the most popular areas of treatment as skin can sag, impair vision and affect your beautiful appearance. Thermage can treat this area by causing the delicate eye skin to tighten, exposing more of the eye and improving the appearance of your brow area.
Benefits of Thermage
There are many benefits of Thermage, including:
- One treatment necessary
- A more youthful appearance without the ‘surgery’ look or downtime
- Any skin colour can be treated
To experience these benefits contact Dr Anh Nguyen at her Perth consultation rooms today.
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.
