Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that can give your skin a smooth, younger, and sleeker appearance. It is used to address unwanted wrinkles and cellulite around the eyes, face, neck, and body. Thermage uses a special radio frequency energy to create the look you want, with minimal down time. Let’s discuss what a Thermage treatment can do for you and the science behind this sought after procedure.
Behind the Science of Thermage
The Thermage procedure utilizes a patented radiofrequency (RF) technology, known as ThermaCool, to smooth out your skin. Studies demonstrate the power of Thermage to tighten and lightly lift the skin to renew facial features and contours. The procedure is quick and simple and takes 45-90 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. ThermaCool is FDA approved to address many types of facial and full body wrinkles.
How Thermage Works
The patented ThermaCool process uses ThermaTip to deliver a precise amount of energy to the treatment area. ThermaTip can evenly heat a large amount of collagen in the deeper skin layers while protecting the superficial layers with cooling. This uniform heating process enables the underlying structures of the skin to tighten. The results are almost immediate and will continue to improve over six months after the treatment. During this time, new collagen is created to tighten the skin, creating a healthier and more youthful look.
Unlike other skin tightening procedures, you only need one Thermage treatment to see and notice natural results. If you are not able to take much time off of work to heal, Thermage is an excellent option for you.

We’ve all heard that phrase “the eyes have it.” That it is the It Factor; the magic of looking young and vibrant. It isn’t that we don’t want our eyes to age; there is beauty in the aging process itself (really, there is). What we want is to guide that process in a way that enables each to continue feeling good about appearance. One way that we do that here at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center is with blepharoplasty. Another option, and one that is appealing to many of our patients is non-surgical eyelid rejuvenation with Thermage.
What Can Thermage Do?
Like any non-surgical treatment, there are corrections that can be achieved with Thermage. There are also some concerns that cannot be resolved with this particular treatment. Some of the improvements that may come from heat-based eyelid rejuvenation include tighter, more resilient skin on the upper eyelids. This reduces hooding or sagging that cause a tired or angry appearance. Thermage is also a suitable maintenance treatment after eyelid surgery.
How it Works
Thermage is one of the several radiofrequency treatments used today. The wavelengths of energy emitted by this device pass through surface tissues to heat collagen strands in connective tissue. Because it is the loosening of collagen strands that lead to laxity issues, this immediate constriction can achieve noticeable results right after treatment. The real work is a continual process that occurs for about six months. In response to targeted heating, fibroblasts produce healthy new collagen to rebuild the strands that have frayed.
The Ultimate Evidence
Understandably, it is easier to invest in a treatment that has proven capabilities. In one study of more than 5,000 participants, results showed that Thermage performed very well. 87% of those treated saw an immediate tightening of the upper eyelids. After six months, 92% of those treated saw the results they desired. At the conclusion of the study, a total of 94% of treated patients remained satisfied with their results.
