How Thermage Works

To understand how Thermage works, it helps to know a little about how your skin works.

The facial skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer, also known as the fat layer that has a web of collagen fibers running through it.

When the collagen in these three layers break down due to sun exposure, family heredity, or the normal aging process, your face begins to sag and wrinkle. Naturally, treatments that work on just the surface can’t do anything to restore the collagen in the underlayer or the innerlayer of your skin.

Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure available that tightens and renews your skin’s collagen in all three layers. How? Thermage’s unique Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. And the improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment due to new collagen growth.

Thermage is safer than invasive cosmetic procedures. And unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and colors. Best of all, you only need one Thermage treatment to obtain the full benefits — not three to five as you would with some laser therapies. And there is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your daily routine.
