Aging skin on the face is one of the first concerns men and women have when it comes to looking older than they truly feel. This is because of collagen and elastin loss that starts in one’s 30’s and continues for several decades. The skin experiences laxity that not only causes sagging, but can contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. These imperfections of the skin can slowly erase one’s youthful look and make them feel self-conscious about their appearance. With state-of-the-art solutions available at Aura Skin Spa, patients can now achieve a more attractive look without plastic surgery using Thermage skin tightening services.
What is Thermage?
Thermage is a brand of skin-tightening device that is used to provide nonsurgical, noninvasive improvements using radiofrequency energy. This energy warms and provides deep administration to stimulate new collagen production. By doing so, the skin will experience tightening and firming to reduce sagging and wrinkle and line reduction. The technology used in Thermage has been used in many areas of medicine with positive results, and is now one of the most effective solutions for aging skin that eliminates the need for plastic surgery.
Where is Thermage used?
Most of the patients who visit Aura Skin Spa in San Francisco, CA use Thermage to accomplish the results they desire in the facial area. However, Thermage can also be used to firm skin elsewhere on the body. During a consultation visit with Dr. Anthony Waechter, patients can ask about the use of Thermage throughout the body to achieve improvement in skin laxity.
Who is a candidate?
The best candidates for Thermage treatments are patients who have mild to moderate skin laxity of the face and body and desire a nonsurgical approach. Patients are often in their 30’s and 40’s and want a solution for the beginning stages of aging. Candidates must also have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved by this treatment, and should be in good overall health.
