After we turn 30, our body starts to naturally begin to lose its stores of collagen and elastin in the skin that help it look youthful. Skin laxity happens, where the skin becomes much more relaxed and less firm and tight as it used to be. By stimulating the production of collagen, patients can turn back time and improve their skin’s elasticity. To do this, many patients turn to the team at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center to ask about certain treatments and procedures that can provide them with the most desirable results. Dr. Armen Serebrakian will often suggest to patients the benefits of treatments such as the Thermage skin tightening device.
What is Thermage?
Thermage is a non-invasive, radiofrequency based skin tightening treatment. It works by heating the dermis and stimulating collagen production. This results in a tighter, more youthful appearance. It is one of the best ways to use the body’s own rejuvenation process to address the early signs of aging, including the formation of fine lines and wrinkles that are common with increased skin laxity.
Where can Thermage be administered?
Thermage can be used on any area of the body where skin laxity is present, including the face, neck, arms, and stomach. Treatment typically lasts 60-90 minutes and requires no downtime.
How long will it take to see results?
Because collagen production takes time and doesn’t happen overnight, it is important that individuals remain patient as the process occurs. Results are typically seen within 3-6 months following the initial treatment and can last up to 2 years. To maintain results and continued to improve the skin, patients will want to schedule follow-up treatments over time with the team at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center.
