Stretching the skin and giving it new tone and firmness is possible from the inside by stimulating the production of collagen. Through thermage, we can stimulate the collagen fibers of the skin, resulting in a relaxation of the skin, a slight lifting effect, and a reduction of wrinkles on the face and neck.
A deep stimulation of collagen
Thermage, also called ThermaCool, is a medical apparatus approved by the FDA that exploits the emission of a monopolar radiofrequency which is able to achieve a significant improvement in the quality of tissues. Thermage stretches and reshapes the skin through the production and the stimulation of collagen . The effects are visible in a period ranging from 2 to 4 months.
The treatment, if it includes the face and neck, may take up to two hours. If the patient wishes to receive an application of an anesthetic cream, an hour is added to the total time necessary.
Generally, only one session is considered resolutive, but in some cases more than one may be necessary.
The treatment is usually well tolerated, however this varies from patient to patient. In any case, it is possible to use an anesthetic cream topically.
Thermage offers a positive change in the condition of the skin, although it takes quite a long time for this change to become visible: from 2 to 4 months. However, this means that the duration of its effect is proportionally prolonged in time.
After the treatment, a slight erythema or swelling (edema) may occur, although they resolve spontaneously during the day or, at most, a few days.
The treatment is contraindicated in patients with pacemakers or with connective tissue diseases.
For those who want a lasting change in the skin that comes from within, without having to resort to invasive practices.
The skin of the face and neck is significantly sleeker, smoother, brighter and filled out.
