Thermage® Science

Thermage® treatments are all about energy – focusing radio frequency energy to kick start the body’s own natural renewal process. Like most smart technologies, the process is relatively simple – it’s a combination of heat energy to treat deep tissue, and cooling effects, to protect the skin surface and deliver better patient comfort. And our latest evolution of T Thermage® includes patented Comfort Pulse Technology – gentle vibrations and interspersed cooling that make your Thermage® treatment comfortable.

Thermage® at Work:

1. Treatment begins with a cooling effect on the skin for comfort and safety of surface layers.

How Does Thermage® Work?

Thermage® in San Francisco is a proven radio frequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. The benefits of Thermage® include the smoothing of wrinkly or uneven skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the face and body. Thermage® radio frequency energy works with your body, remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want.

How Long Does Thermage® Take?

Thermage® treatments typically take between 45 – 90 minutes depending on the area being treated. Thermage® treatments require minimal recovery time and Thermage® treatments are a great solution if you can’t afford a lot of time away from work or your social life.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

One treatment is all you will need to see and feel real results.

What Results Can I Expect From Thermage®?

Most patients can see and feel Thermage® results very soon after treatment – in as little as one day. Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Your body actually produces new collagen which is how the collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. Even better, results can last years.

Does It Hurt?

Aura features the latest Thermage® CPT technology that adds a gentle vibration sensation and interspersed cooling bursts that give you even more comfort during treatment. You will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. Throughout the procedure, your physician or practitioner will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.
