Renew Your Appearance with Thermage

Do you want to smooth your skin or improve the appearance of cellulite? Thermage can deliver just that. Thermage CPT Technology is a specialized radio frequency treatment made to deliver a more sleek, smooth, and younger feel to your skin. Thermage is generally used on the face, neck, eyes, and overall body.

How Thermage Science Works

Thermage treatments use radio frequency energy to encourage the body’s natural renewal system. This smart technology is a simple process and combines heat energy and cooling effects to protect the skin and help the patient feel comfortable. The latest update to Thermage technology uses patented Comfort Pulse Technology, which uses regular cooling and gentle vibrations to enhance your comfort during the treatment.

Thermage Treatment

Thermage transforms the skin by focusing below the surface to diminish skin imperfections caused by age and environmental factors. Thermage can smoothen wrinkled or uneven skin and provide enhanced facial definition for the neckline, jaw, and eyes. Thermage will tone undesirable bulges or dimples on the face and body while allowing the patient to feel comfortable during the process. Treatments generally last 45-90 minutes depending on the size of the area being addressed. Since recovery time is minimal, Thermage is an excellent skin enhancement option for those that cannot spend a lot of time away from work to recover.

Thermage Results

It takes only one treatment to see and notice real and natural results from Thermage. In merely one day, patients report that their skin looks more taut and smooth. Your skin can continue to improve for up to six months after the treatment as the body regenerates collagen. Your results can last years.

Want Tighter Eyelids? Consider Thermage!

Thermage® San Francisco, CAIn this day and age of technology, it is difficult to imagine that you may need a surgical procedure to correct signs of aging such as upper eyelid hooding or crepey skin around the eyes. In many cases, we’re finding that men and women have numerous alternatives to surgery if that is their preference. One of the options that we offer in our San Francisco med spa, Thermage, is a promising modality for eyelid rejuvenation without surgery.

What Thermage can do for the Eyes

The eyes change in some ways when we age. While Thermage is not indicated for concerns like crow’s feet (that’s a job for Botox), we may suggest this treatment for:

  • Upper and lower eyelid wrinkling and crepey skin around the eyes.
  • Upper eyelid was hooding due to mild to moderate laxity of the skin.
  • Tired-looking eyes.
  • Eyelid maintenance after eyelid surgery.

How it Works

Thermage is one of the several devices that have been developed around radiofrequency energy. This particular form of energy penetrates the uppermost tissues of the skin to affect the strands of collagen the lie beneath. When existing strands are heated, they immediately constrict, which tightens the skin. Further improvement occurs as healthy new collagen floods the area to support remodeling.

Proof is in the Numbers

Of course, the biggest question about any non-surgical treatment is “does it work?” According to clinical studies, 94% of people who choose Thermage for eyelid rejuvenation are happy they did. In one study, 87% percent of patients surveyed reported noticing immediate improvement in the tightness of the eyelids. 92% reported satisfactory tightening at the six-month mark after treatment. Diagnostic testing of collagen stores also confirmed collagen strengthening in the months following Thermage.

There are Exceptions

Perhaps the unpredictability of any treatment is what can make the whole process of anti-aging so frustrating. When it comes to Thermage, we do know that treatment is best suited to the tightening of the skin on the upper eyelids. Under eye, puffiness does not seem to improve with radiofrequency, though lines and wrinkles may decrease somewhat. Excessive hooding, as well, may require surgery for full correction. We are careful to perform a thorough consultation with each patient so that we may develop the most appropriate treatment plan for each.
