Skin Tightening with Thermage Body

Non-invasive light and energy-based skin tightening procedures are among the areas of cosmetic medicine that makes the fastest progress. In fact, all skin tightening treatments act based on the same logic: They deliver heat energy into the depths of the skin for increasing the collagen production and enhancing the collagen's tightening effect. You don’t need any healing process after this effective treatment used to tighten and smooth the saggy skin, ensure the formation of the skin’s contour, and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Thermage Body is a procedure performed, with no need for surgery or needle, to eliminate wrinkles and skin sagging caused by the breakdown of the collagens in the skin as a result of pregnancy, weight loss or aging. It is intended to tighten and smooth the skin, ensure the formation of the skin’s contour, and reduce the appearance of cellulite, for creating a younger-looking skin that has accentuated contours.

The system involves a monopolar radiofrequency procedure intended for refreshing the existing collagen and triggering its production, which supports the collagen development of the collagen tissues (by stimulating them) responsible for elasticity that enables the skin to look younger. It achieves this by heating the deeper layer of the problematic skin responsible for collagen production. As a reaction, the bonds connected to the visible surface of the skin gets stretched, shortened and thickened.

In the procedure, the heat created safely sends signal to the body to renew its tissues. This signal accelerates the regeneration process of the connective tissues that decrease with increasing age. The Thermage procedure takes 1 to 1.5 hour depending on the application site. You can return to your everyday life immediately after the procedure. In Thermage Body, generally a single treatment session is adequate.

The most important advantage of Thermage, a monopolar radiofrequency procedure, is that it can be applied to all types of skin and provides strong effects that appear gradually. A visible change can be achieved in consequence of the procedure, and the effects continue increasingly with each passing day. After the procedure, the sagging skin tissues on the abdomen, leg and knee are reshaped. The buttock area is reshaped in such a way as to provide a more round an lifted appearance; and the arms with less sagging skin look smoother and tighter.
