Thermage At THE COSMETIC PLASTIC SURGERY CENTER
What is Thermage?
Thermage is a one-time non-surgical radiofrequency therapy to treat wrinkles. Skin is our bodies’ largest organ, adapting everywhere to the changes in your shape, activities and environment. As we age, our skin’s resiliency and elasticity decreases and sometimes never returns to that smooth skin feeling. Whether on the face, around the eyes, or various areas on the body, Thermage can tighten your skin helping to return your natural youthful look.

Thermage treatments are customized to your needs, and typically require minimal recovery time. The most popular treatment sites are around the eyes, face, and belly. It’s a great solution if you want your skin to look sleeker, smoother and younger, but can’t afford a lot of time away from work or social life.
Thermage treatments are all about energy by focusing radio frequency energy Thermage kick starts the body’s own natural renewal process. The science can be broken down into 4 stages:
Treatment begins with a cooling effect on the skin for comfort and safety of surface layers.
Specially designed treatment tip is in placed against the skin targeted areas.
Radio frequency energy penetrates into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment areas and remodeling the collagen.
Final delivery of cryogen to cool the deep epidermis.
What to Expect with Thermage From Dr. DiMercurio
Treatments are typically 45 minutes for eyes or face and up to 90 minutes for larger body areas. Well worth the wait, only 1 treatment is all you will need to see and feel real results!
Warm & Cool
Thermage adds a gentle vibration sensation and interspersed cooling bursts that give you even more comfort during treatment. You will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. Throughout the procedure, your medical professional will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red, but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s typically no recovery time or special follow-up care.
Most patients can see and feel Thermage results very soon after treatments –in as little as one day. Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Your body actually produces new collagen which is how the collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. Even better, results can last years.
