With the multitude of skin products out there, it can be overwhelming to try and find the best solution for your cosmetic concerns. Over the next few weeks look for the DermaNetwork Blog's 'Treatment Spotlight' segment, where treatments ranging from the brand new to tried-and-true are featured and explained.
First up, meet Thermage, a great alternative to a facelift for those who are looking for natural-looking, progressive results and a treatment process that fits easily into a busy lifestyle.
Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that effectively addresses the signs of aging in the face. Thermage is used to smooth out wrinkles, tighten the skin, and redefine facial contours using heat technology--without any going 'under the knife.' During the Thermage procedure, heat is applied to the area being treated using radio frequency energy, delivered via a specially designed device. During the healing process, collagen rebuilds itself and tightens the skin over time--leaving you with skin that's firm, supple, and has a healthy glow. You results will be progressive, meaning that an initial subtle improvement will be visible right away, and improve over time as the collagen beneath the skin's surface continues to tighten.
Many people choose Thermage because unlike other skin rejuventation procedures, with Thermage you can see immediate results. Patients also love that it is a virtually painless, non-invasive procedure that requires little-to-no recovery time.
Areas that Thermage works best on include:
• Fine line and wrinkles on the face
• Sagging skin on the neck
• Sagging skin in the brow area
