As a leading procedure for body contouring and skin tightening, Thermage gives patients an opportunity for real change in their appearance. Thermage is known as a non-damaging treatment, meaning there is no wear and tear on the surface of the skin. This allows patients to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment while enjoying the tightening, rejuvenating effects that Thermage offers.
Over time, patients see a dramatic improvement in wrinkles, sagging skin and fine lines. If you think Thermage may be for you, please call our Beverly Hills office with any questions or to set an appointment.
Thermage uses radio frequency technology to deliver heating energy to the deeper layers of the skin while concurrently cooling the surface of the skin. This first tightens the underlying layers of your skin, while concurrently giving your body a boost in natural collagen production. Both these effects serve to give you a smoother, more youthful appearance wherever treatment is delivered.
Thermage has a unique feature to keep you completely comfortable during the procedure. While the treatment tip heats the underlying layers of skin, it simultaneously cools the surface of the skin. This not only keeps the patient comfortable during the procedure, it also protects the outer layers of skin from damage. Because of this, Thermage skin tightening, delivered at our premier facility in Beverly Hills, requires no downtime and no recovery period.
The latest version of Thermage skin tightening, delivered by our specialists in Los Angeles, is called Thermage CPT. This stands for Comfort Pulse Technology.
This means that when the radio frequency is delivered to the skin, it is done in a series of micro-pulses. Additionally, the handpiece vibrates with each pulse, which minimizes the heating effect on the skin. This all goes toward ensuring total patient comfort during the procedure.
All in all, Thermage treatment in our Los Angeles office is perfect for patients looking for tighter, more youthful skin without the hassle of needles, incisions or surgery of any kind. If you have any questions about this groundbreaking procedure, please call our office today.
There are several incredible benefits of Thermage treatments. Thermage is designed to stimulate collagen production, which softens, tightens, and firms your skin – naturally. It is an excellent option for candidates that are either medically unable to undergo surgery or for people who want a non-invasive way to treat skin laxity. Some of the benefits include the following:
As the treatment works by stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin through heat, the results will develop gradually. Many people start to notice the results developing as early as a few days after treatment.
These results continue to improve for up to six months. Subsequent treatments can be scheduled to maintain or enhance the results of your first session as you see fit, although many patients need only one treatment to achieve a stunning level of skin rejuvenation.
I get now why I’ve heard the name ‘Thermage’ so many times before this. This stuff is powerful. What I love is that my skin feels so much better. I can walk around and feel the effects without even seeing them. But then when I look in a mirror, I get even more elated by what Thermage has done for my skin. I look 5 years younger, and it was done without any pain or discomfort. I couldn’t be happier.
Our office in Beverly Hills provides a tranquil environment where you will receive the highest quality treatment and care. Our highly trained and skilled practitioners strive to deliver Thermage treatments that bring out the results and rejuvenation that you desire. Our approach involves providing our patients with the knowledge they need so that they can make educated decisions about their treatments.
In addition to Thermage treatment, Lasky Aesthetics and Laser Center provides other means of skin tightening and resurfacing, including CoolSculpting, TriPollar and VoluDerm. We encourage you to read about each of these procedures to find out what areas they specialize in.
As the first step of your Thermage treatment in Beverly Hills, your practitioner will apply a numbing topical cream to the treatment area. This helps prevent any discomfort during the procedure. For patients with especially sensitive skin, a mild sedative or local anesthetic may be used. This aspect of your treatment will be thoroughly discussed during your initial consultation.
During the procedure, your practitioner will use the Thermage handpiece over the treatment area.
With each pulse of radio frequency, you will feel a brief sensation of heat. This is Thermage technology working to restore your skin’s elasticity and deliver a smoother, more even texture.
As your practitioner makes multiple passes over the treatment area, she will monitor your comfort and adjust the power of the handpiece as necessary.
Thermage is a completely non-invasive procedure and causes no damage to the surface of your skin. Because of this, patients can leave our office in Los Angeles immediately following the procedure and resume their daily activities.
A single Thermage skin tightening treatment from our Los Angeles specialists can last for up to three years.
In some cases, we recommend that patients receive a follow-up treatment after one year. It all depends on how your skin responds to the procedure.
At the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center in Beverly Hills, we stay in touch with our patients long after Thermage, ensuring they are still seeing the benefits. If you have any questions or concerns that arise following treatment, we are completely available to you.
Thermage skin tightening is a cost-effective treatment when compared to the cost of a facelift. The exact cost of the procedure varies widely depending upon the number of areas treated. The average price for most patients is in the range of $2,000.
Thermage is an excellent complimentary treatment with dermal fillers. The procedure can stimulate collagen and also reduce the quantity of filler needed to smooth lines and wrinkles. Although Thermage and fillers work well together, allow at least two months after dermal filler injections before a Thermage treatment.
The length of time the skin tightening lasts will vary from person to person. A single Thermage skin tightening treatment can keep you looking younger for up to three years. To ensure you look your best, you might be advised to return after one year for a follow-up treatment depending on how your skin reacts.
Typically, Thermage can be used every three to five years to hold off on undergoing surgery. However, Thermage can also be used to supplement the effects of a facelift. Since a facelift does not treat the forehead and eyes, a Thermage treatment could maximize your overall results.
No, Thermage is not painful. One of the benefits of Thermage is its unique feature to keep you completely comfortable during your treatment. The radiofrequency delivered is a series of micro-pulses that limits the heating effect on your skin.
The tip of the Thermage handpiece heats the underlying layers of your skin, while simultaneously cooling the surface. Not only does Thermage’s technology keep you at ease, but it also protects the outer layers of skin from damage.
Thermage and Ultherapy are both minimally invasive skin-tightening procedures. Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to tighten the skin from the inside out. The tissue under the skin is gently heated stimulating collagen. Thermage uses radiofrequency energy and tightens closer to the surface.
