A New Paradigm

Traditionally, surgical procedures have been the first choice for people looking to regain their youthful looks as they get older. Thermage, however, is a completely non-invasive treatment that requires no cutting or surgery whatsoever. That means no long recovery, as well as none of the risks associated with going under the knife.

Aging and Youth

To understand how Thermage tightens skin and improves appearance, it is important to understand what causes the aging process in the first place. The structure of our skin and tissue is held together by collagen, a protein produced by our bodies that provides the smooth, resilient skin that we associate with youth and beauty. As we grow older, this collagen starts to break down, and our bodies become less capable of replacing and rebuilding it. This leads to the many physical symptoms of aging, like sagging, wrinkles, and lines.

The secret to regaining the young look people are searching for, then, is to help the body to repair and regrow the collagen that skin needs. Thermage is designed to do exactly that. It jumpstarts the body’s natural healing and regenerative processes to help them return the skin to its previous firm, tight appearance.

Breakthrough Science

Thermage relies on a revolutionary system of radio frequency (RF) heat energy that penetrates the surface layers of skin to target the deep collagen tissue. This RF energy is combined with a surface level cooling process, ensuring that the outer layers of skin are protected, and that comfort is maintained throughout the procedure. The RF heat energy is what provides the breakthrough effect on skin.

The body responds to the influx of energy by reshaping the existing collagen that has become saggy and weak, firming and strengthening it. The energy also stimulates the production of new collagen, creating a lasting change that is unmatched by any other procedure. Thermage also incorporates gentle vibrating pulses throughout the treatment, which increases patient comfort and helps to encourage the body’s natural regeneration response.

Dr. Michael Cusack Says the Future is Here

One day, science may unlock the secrets of aging, allowing us to prevent any signs of getting older in the first place.
