(For Tightening & Contouring of the Loose Skin & Wrinkles and non-surgical face & body lifts)
Thermage is a recent safe, non-surgical, non-laser, single –session, cosmetic procedure using a computer controlled Capicitative Radio Frequency (CRF) device, for tightening of the loose sagging skin, dissolving skin fat & cellulite and smoothening of the wrinkles & folds and naturally restoring a more youthful appearance with a shine & a glow on the skin. It is offered in the clinic, without ‘down-time’, therefore, patient can resume usual activities immediately. It’s truly a ‘Lunch Break Office procedure’.
When computer controlled Capicitative Radio Frequency (CRF) energy is delivered into the deeper layers of the skin through a specialised ‘ThermaTip’, the large volume of its collagen fibres, the fibrous septae and subcutaneous fat cells are heated optimally, while simultaneously cooling the outer surface of the skin, thereby protecting it from any thermal damage. This heating causes immediate contraction of these deeper structures giving tightening effect to the skin. As the time passes, new production & remodelling of the collagen occurs naturally resulting into further tightening of the skin giving it a healthier, firmer, smoother and more youthful appearance over a period of about 2 to 6 months following only one treatment session.
Thermage procedure is useful in the tightening of the loose, lax sagging skin and the wrinkles & folds at the following areas of the body:
- Forehead to lift eye brows
- Periorbital region (around the eyes)
- In the mid & lower face: Includes the cheeks, area around the mouth, chin, jowls, jaw line and area under the chin
- Full face: Includes periorbital region and mid/lower face areas
- Tummy, Hands & Legs
When ThermaTip touches the surface of skin, patients feels cold sensation at the treatment site, followed by the deep heat sensation with the delivery of each pulse of CRF energy and finally cooling sensation on the skin occurs. Each of this cycle lasts for less than 2 seconds.
Heating of the deeper structures earlier caused some discomfort. However, this discomfort has been eliminated by using latest improved and faster speed ThermaTips reducing the period of ‘cold-heat-cold’ cycle during the procedure, thereby eliminating pain during and after the procedure.
It may take 30 to 60 minutes, depending upon the size of the area to be treated.
There may be some temporary redness and swelling at the treated area. Immediately, your skin may show some shine & glow and feel tighter & smoother.
No special preparations or precautions required. You have to use warm water for face wash, during the rest of the day. You may use your usual skin care products, cosmetics or medications before and after the procedure.
You can resume usual activities immediately; as it is a ‘lunch break’ office procedure with no ‘down-time’.
Some skin tightening is experienced immediately. Over the period of 2 to 6 months, there is a gradual further tightening, lift and contouring effects due to the new production and remodelling of the collagen fibres and loss of fat &. Cellulite.
Most of the patients are satisfied by its excellent results after a single treatment. Very few may require second treatment after 6 months of the first session.
Changes are permanent. However, time factor of age & gravity continue to take toll. Like Surgical-Lifts, Thermage procedure ‘turns back the clock’ but does ‘not stop the clock from ticking’ and unlike Surgical-Lifts also treats sundamaged skin.
It is safe and it is the only procedure approved by FDA-USA for skin tightening, contouring and smoothening of the wrinkles and the non-surgical face-lifts.
Complimentary consultation with Dr. Mukadam can help you to decide whether the Thermage procedure is needed for you or not. Persons having above mentioned skin changes and those who are determined to improve their looks by having tighter, smoother and more youthful skin are the best candidates for this procedure.
The Thermage treatment is offered to the particular area of the skin where effects are desired, therefore, the cost depends upon the size of the area to be treated and number of pulse-shots of the specialised CRF required.
Moreover, Thermage treatment is offered in the clinic that too without anaesthesia, thus saving cost & avoiding mental torture of operation theatre, anaesthesia, hospitalization, post-operative medicines and any loss of the human working hours of the client.
Traditionally, loose & lax skin is treated by the ‘Surgical-Lifts’ , ‘CO2 Laser Resurfacing’ and ‘Fractional-CO2 or Fractional-Erbium: Yag Laser Resurfacing’. They give excellent results but they are invasive, require hospitalization, post – operative bed rest for few weeks causing loss of daily earnings etc. However, CO2 Laser resurfacing may cause certain side-effects like, secondary infections, hyperpigmentation, hypertrophic scars & keloid formations. These side-effects are more frequent and more pronounced in Asians (Skin Types IV, V, VI)
