Thermage Procedure in Las Vegas NV
If you’re ready to make some changes to your skin but aren’t sure about having an invasive procedure, Thermage may be just the option you’re looking for. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy waves to target problem areas on the body and the face. It can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin. It is a non-invasive procedure that has very little down time afterwards, so you can resume your busy schedule without missing a beat.
What Does Thermage Do?
The technology behind Thermage is radiofrequency waves applied directly to the areas that you would like to improve. First, a cooling technique is used. Following that, a heated pulse is sent to the targeted areas. This pulse actually causes changes in the collagen below the skin’s surface – and those changes improve the skin’s appearance and contributes to the removal of wrinkles. After the heat, another cooling pulse is applied. The changes in temperature work to stimulate the collagen and help keep you comfortable during your session.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients see results within twenty four hours of treatment. And the results are also long-lasting, improving more over time. This is due to the stimulation of the collagen. Strengthening the collagen gives the skin a more youthful appearance.
How Long Does a Thermage Session Last?
Sessions vary according to what is being done. Typical facial sessions last up to 45 minutes. Body treatments can last up to 90 minutes. Areas that are targeted include the area around the eyes, the jawline, and the neckline. Those are often the regions that we see sagging and wrinkles.
Body treatments can help reduce unsightly bulging, dimples, and wrinkles. We already know that the signs of aging aren’t just limited to the facial area, so why not treat your whole body?
What About Side Effects and Downtime?
Although all patients are different, the most common side effect is a slight redness to the skin within the treatment area. And because this is a non-invasive treatment, downtime is minimal. Most patients resume normal activity directly following at treatment. You can go straight back to the office or out for lunch and nobody will even know you’ve had Thermage – until they notice your smooth skin and more youthful appearance.
