Thermage Facial Treatment

Thermage facial treatment utilizes cutting edge radiofrequency technology to cosmetically enhance and renew the appearance of facial skin and features by reducing wrinkles and skin laxity and promoting the skin's own natural collagen production. Thermage facial treatment was developed by dermatologists with a California-based company that also provides training to cosmetic surgeons throughout the nation.

Thermage facial treatment techniques are non-invasive and do not require anesthesia or recovery time. Thermage facial treatment is also a quarter of the cost of traditional surgical facial cosmetic enhancement procedures. Thermage facial treatment was approved by Food and Drug Administration in 2002 as a safe and effective way to cosmetically enhance the features of the face.

Experts state that patients in their mid to late thirties to fifties with mild photoaging or wrinkles in the skin respond best to Thermage facial treatment. The best candidates for Thermage facial treatment are patients who have a good understanding of what to expect before, during, and after the procedure.

Thermage facial treatment is administered by qualified cosmetic surgeons in a hospital or doctor's office. The Thermage facial treatment procedure can take anywhere between a few minutes and an hour, depending on the area of skin that is treated. A numbing cream is typically applied to the treatment area before the procedure to mitigate any potential pain. Most patients who have undergone Thermage facial treatment describe the procedure as causing a mild, but manageable, pinching or burning sensation that lasts briefly.

Once the Thermage facial treatment procedure is completed, a patient is normally able to immediately resume their daily activities. Some Thermage facial treatment patients will experience some minor redness after the procedure, but this is usually resolved in a few days. The recommendation of sunscreen use is the only specific aftercare that is encouraged, besides normal skin care treatment. In rare cases, a patient may experience peeling, scarring, indentations, and other skin irregularities, but overall Thermage facial treatment is safe and effective.

The results of Thermage facial treatment are usually noticeable a few weeks to a few months following the cosmetic procedure. These results from Thermage facial treatment last up to two years or more.
