Thermage® Body Contouring
What is Thermage® Body Contouring?
Thermage® body contouring is a rejuvenation treatment that uses non-invasive radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen deep within the skin. This triggers natural skin-tightening to help eliminate wrinkles and lines on the face and the rest of the body. Thermage® is even safe enough for use in delicate areas, so you can even treat wrinkles that develop around the eyes. After Thermage®, patients enjoy smoother, tighter, more contoured skin.
What is a Thermage® Treatment Like?
The Thermage® treatment uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen contraction and production in the treated areas. This is a generally comfortable technique, and patients are typically able to relax during treatment. The Thermage® device may cause a warming sensation when it initially touches the skin, but it also features a cooling component to protect the skin and minimize any discomfort that may occur during treatment. A single Thermage® treatment can take between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the treatment area.
How is Recovery After Thermage® Body Contouring?
There is no recovery or downtime after a Thermage® treatment, allowing patients to resume work and other normal activities immediately after their appointment. Some patients may experience mild redness or swelling after treatment, but these side effects typically fade within a day or two. We encourage patients to resume their normal skin care regimens in order to maximize the benefits from treatment and maintain optimal skin health.
When Will I Notice Results from Thermage® Body Contouring?
The results from Thermage® body contouring will develop gradually as collagen is restored in the skin. Some patients may notice results within a few weeks, but more dramatic results may not be seen until two or three months after treatment. Results will continue to improve for as long as six months after treatment. The results from Thermage® body contouring can last up to a year or longer, but we often recommend annual treatments for patients to maintain their results.
How Much Does Thermage® Body Contouring Cost?
The cost of your Thermage® body contouring treatment will depend on the area being treated. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized plan that includes the exact cost of your treatment. As a cosmetic procedure, Thermage® body contouring is not covered by insurance providers. In order to keep this and other treatments affordable for our patients, we offer financing through CareCredit® and accept all major credit cards.
