|Thermage Skin Tightening for the Face|
The Thermage ThermaCool is a radio frequency system that was introduced in 2002 to help tighten the skin. With more than 150,000 procedures performed so far and extensive coverage by a variety of national news programs as well as the Oprah Winfrey Show, ThermaCool has been shown to help firm skin that has lost elasticity over time. Areas that respond especially well include the brow, jawline and eye area.
In 2007, Health Canada approved the device for treatment of wrinkles on the upper and lower eyelids. This makes Thermage the only FDA-approved device able to tighten the delicate skin around the eyes; it also makes ThermaCool an easy, non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery.
During treatment with Thermage, radio frequency energy is delivered quickly to the targeted area. This energy heats the collagen deep within the skin, causing a twofold reaction. First, existing collagen contracts and remodels for a tightening effect; second, new collagen is produced, providing further support and firmness to the skin. This process continues for several months after treatment, so that results continue to improve during this time.
