Thermage as a Non-Invasive Treatment for the Face and Body
Skin tightening treatments of the body are often thought of as invasive plastic surgery procedures that require extended downtimes and may result in unwanted scarring. These treatments, such as tummy tucks and facelifts, are effective for patients who have areas with severe skin laxity. Fortunately, patients with mild to moderate skin laxity on the face and body can turn to a non-invasive solution known as Thermage.
What is Thermage and how does it work?
Thermage is a special dermatological device used by doctors for the treatment of sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and even cellulite. This treatment device is cleared by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement of the skin on the body and face, and effectively tightens these areas by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. The radio frequency energy administered by this device penetrates deep into the skin. Over the course of several weeks and months, patients will notice less skin laxity, less wrinkles and folds on the face, or less cellulite—depending on the treatment patients choose.
Is Thermage safe?
Thermage is a treatment that has been approved by the FDA as an alternative to surgical procedures. Radio frequency is used in many areas of medicine and continues to be at the forefront of medical technology. With Thermage, patients can treat large areas or small areas to improve their appearance and enjoy a more youthful look.
Who is a candidate for Thermage?
Men and women who have areas of concern are encouraged to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Armen Serebakian of the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center to determine if they can benefit from this particular modality of treatment. Most adult patients with mild to moderate skin laxity or cellulite may be considered appropriate candidates for Thermage.
