Thermage uses radio frequency energy to heat the deeper layers in the skin and thus stimulate collagen production and improve laxity in jowls, cheeks, neck, buttocks, extremities, abdomen, eye lids, hands and abdomen. Thermage treatment can reduce visible signs of aging. By smoothing and contouring trouble areas of loose skin, Thermage can help create a naturally younger appearance. Results show primarily as skin tightening rather than volumizing and can be first seen within days or weeks after treatment, and will typically continue to improve up to 3-6 months following the treatment.
Dr. Chapas and Dr. MacGregor have extensive clinical experience with Thermage, going back to the clinical trials. Thermage results strongly depend on physician technique and proper treatment parameters, which is why our Thermage treatments are personally administered by one of our board-certified dermatologists, not by a nurse, medical assistant or technician. We work closely with Solta, Thermage’s manufacturer (Dr. Chapas is on its Scientific Advisory Board) and have thus refined our proprietary treatment protocols. In some situations Thermage works best in combination with other treatments, and our comprehensive range of non-surgical body contouring and skin laxity devices combined with our expertise in administering these treatments allows us to design the best personalized plan for each patient.
