How It Works

Thermage® skin tightening uses radio frequency to gently heat the deep dermis layer of skin responsible for collagen production. It works to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production, resulting in a smoother, firmer and more youthful complexion.  

Thermage® skin tightening is used to treat most areas of the face and body. 

RESULTS

Results are visible after two to six months following a single treatment and can last for several years depending on your skin condition and natural ageing process. Regular treatments will help to maintain results.  

TREATMENT PREPARATION
  • Cease non-prescription anti-inflammatories two weeks prior  
WHAT TO EXPECT

Prior to your first treatment, your clinician will consult with you to assess your suitability and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.  

During the treatment, you will feel a brief cooling sensation followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening, while the cooling sensation protects the surface of your skin. Our clinician will work with you throughout the treatment to ensure you remain comfortable. A numbing agent may be applied 30 minutes prior to minimise discomfort.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE

  • Is pregnant or breastfeeding

  • Has poor skin quality including severe sun damage and elastosis 
  • Has poor fibroblast response 
  • Has epilepsy

FOLLOW-UP AND NEXT STEPS
