Thermage is a safe, clinically proven way to tighten and contour skin, with improvements in tone, contour, and texture occurring naturally through the stimulation of your own collagen. It is completely non-invasive—no surgery, no injections. A single treatment tightens your existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth. Improvements are both immediately visible and continue up to six months. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and aging process.
The Thermage procedure is normally done as a single treatment that takes from 20 minutes to 2 hours depending on the treatment area. Best of all there is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your normal routine. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. And unlike injections or fillers, Thermage works on your entire face.
If you want to look the way you feel, schedule a consultation with Dr. Byrd to see what Thermage can do for you.
Thermage is a non-invasive procedure available that tightens and renews your skin’s collagen in all three layers. Thermage’s unique Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. And the improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment due to new collagen growth.
Thermage works on all skin types and colors. Best of all, you only need one Thermage treatment to obtain the full benefits rather than three to five as you would with some laser therapies. There is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your daily routine. Thermage is FDA cleared for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids. Side effects are generally mild and may include redness, swelling, blisters, bumps and rare instances of surface irregularities.
Normally, the complete procedure can be performed in just one session lasting from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the treatment area. General anesthesia is not required, but to make sure you are comfortable, Dr. Byrd may offer light pain medications prior to treatment.
During the treatment, you’ll feel a brief, heat sensation each time Thermage delivers radiofrequency energy to the underlayer of your skin. This indicates that your collagen is being stimulated and tightened.
After treatment, your skin may be slightly red for a day or two. But most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment, with no downtime or special follow-up care. The good news is that you’ll see immediate results. You may feel and see your skin being smoother, firmer, and tighter immediately after your Thermage treatment. You may also notice some contouring effects which will begin enhancing the shape of your face.
After the procedure, you may continue to see improvements to your skin as a result of the production of new and increased collagen, as well as some additional contouring effects due to continued tightening over time. These effects will continue for up to six months. You should see lasting results. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and aging process.
