Body by Thermage®
Thermage® is a radio frequency device with a long history and excellent safety record. It is FDA approved for skin tightening on the face, neck, eyelids (periorbital), and body. Abdomen, buttocks and knees are especially popular treatment areas.
It is one of our most performed treatments for cellulite and skin tightening on the body. Benefits include firming of wrinkly or uneven skin and the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the body.
Thermage® works by remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want.
During the treatment radiofrequency is applied to the skin to heat the subdermal tissue and tighten the connective tissue bands.
Patients may see a modest change immediately, however full results are not apparent for 3-6 months.
Thermage® is safe, non invasive and requires no downtime. The results are additive, so patients looking for a more dramatic change may opt to treat the area a second time, 3-6 months after the first.
At Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar we often use Thermage® in conjunction with other treatments such as CoolSculpting, Ultherapy® and Velashape® for a synergistic effect.
There may be some discomfort associated with Thermage®, this may be controlled with topical numbing agents, oral medication or the use of Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT), a patented treatment handpiece developed by Solta, the makers of Thermage®.
