Thermage is a radio frequency technology that has USA PDA approval for wrinkle reduction. It is also known for its ability to tighten, lift, and contour skin on face, neck, and body.
ThermaCool CPT (Comfort Plus Technology System). Thermage has been described as the Non-Surgical Facelift. There is a special device in the new system that reduces discomfort and allows higher radiofrequency energies for greater results.
As we age collagen production slows down, skin loses its elasticity and the contours of the face and body appears less defined.
Normal changes in skin that come as we age include more visible wrinkles and sagging skin, uneven texture, dryness, and thinning of the superficial later of the skin.
Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure that helps reduce wrinkles, and tighten your skin in a single treatment—with no surgery, no injections, and no downtime. Instead, Thermage stimulates your body's natural renewal of collagen, which creates subtle, natural looking results.
Over time, sagging or wrinkled skin is replaced with smoother, tighter skin; improved tone and texture; and an overall younger looking appearance. The skin will begin to look plumper, while firmness and elasticity will be improved.
None – you can return to normal activities straight away.
We are the Bangkok leading non-invasive cosmetic group. Thermage treatments are carried out by highly trained nurses and doctors who have extensive experience in this field and have successfully treated hundreds of patients on a variety of skin conditions.
How does Thermage work?
The procedure works by using radiofrequency technology to safely heat collagen fibers deep in the skin and underlying tissue. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten and contour the skin.
Where on the body is Thermage performed?
The Thermage CPT procedure is designed especially for the face. It can help tighten skin safely on your face, neck and decoltage.
Face & Jaws:
- Sagging skin
- Loose jowls or lack of definition in jaw line
- Sagging skin under the chin
- Wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, forehead and eyelids.
- With special technics at Pewdee Clinic, we can also lift eyebrows, upper eyelids and erase wrinkles around eyes.
The facial skin is made up of three distinct layers: the outer layer called the epidermis, collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer. Thermage works on all three layers. Thermage's unique Radio Frequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin's underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. The Thermage treatment improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment, due to new collagen growth.
You only need one treatment to obtain the full benefits. In addition, there is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your daily routine.
Thermage can be safely and effectively used to tighten the bottom half of the face, giving you more definition in the jaw area.
How is Thermage different from other skin tightening treatments?
While laser treatments and other radiofrequency procedures also tighten skin, no other treatment heats as deeply as Thermage. By heating the innermost layers of skin, Thermage is the most effective at tightening collagen and stimulating the formation of new collagen, which results in tighter skin and an overall younger looking appearance.
Also, Thermage generally achieves results in a single treatment compared to other technologies requiring multiple treatment sessions.
Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients experience minor discomfort while some patients experience hot but bearable pain. However, the new Thermage system is considerably less painful than previous generations of this type of treatment.
The Thermage CPT system incorporates proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology™ in every aspect of the system including a new vibrating handpiece and scientifically advanced treatment tips. There is a special device in the new system that reduces discomfort and allows higher radiofrequency energies for greater results.
How long does the Thermage treatment take?
It depends on the size of the area – but can take from 45 minutes – 1 hour.
How long before I can return to daily activities?
There's no special care needed after the procedure and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
How soon will I see the results?
Most clients will notice an improvement straight after treatment. The effects continue to improve for up to 3-6 months following a single treatment. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and natural aging process.
Is there a particular preparation or follow up regime?
There is no special care required after treatment, aside from basic skin maintenance and sunscreens as part of a regular skincare regimen. Since the Thermage procedure has little to no downtime, most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. Some patients exhibit a temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually goes away within 24 hours.
Can Thermage treat all skin types and all year round?
Unlike lasers, Thermage procedures work on all skin types and colours. It is a year round procedure. After a Thermage procedure, you do not have to avoid the sun as with laser treatments. Schedule your Thermage procedure in the summer or any time that's right for you!
