Three Reasons to Get Thermage NOW

Tighter skin, smoother jawline, improved neck appearance.

One treatment, no downtime.

Can this really be possible?

Yes! Thermage works by stimulating the formation of new collagen while simultaneously causing your existing collagen to contract and tighten. Thermage has been the gold standard in contouring and tightening for over 15 years because it delivers. About Face Skin Care has been perfecting this treatment for over 10-years — this isn’t something new, it’s something that works.

1. Tighten and Smooth Saggy Skin

How does it tighten and smooth so well? Thermage uses Radio Frequency (RF) technology to deliver heat deep to the dermal layer. Sounds a little scary, but it’s not!

“Volumetric Heat” is carefully delivered to older collagen-fibers (that have grown lax and saggy over the years).  Volumetric Heat is a complicated sounding term that means measured, consistent and targeted. This energy causes your aging collagen fibers to contract, giving the skin an immediate lift.

One of our favorite things to show the patient their results, halfway through the treatment. It’s great to see their response when they see the lift already achieved on the treated half!

2. Stimulate The Growth Of Collagen

While the immediate lift is great to see, the full results continue to improve over the next 6-months. New collagen is stimulated to grow. (We all stop making new collagen around the age of 26, and it’s generally around this time that people see skin start to change.)

Collagen stimulation is the goal of rejuvenation, the new collagen that is stimulated will further tighten and smooth the skin. Your Thermage treatment will silently continue to deliver results over the next 3-6 months!

3. Get Your “You” Back!

In addition to the face, neck and eyes, Thermage is an extremely versatile treatment that can be used on multiple body-areas where loose-skin and sagging cause concerns. The post-baby tummy area is particularly well suited for Thermage. While a woman’s body will naturally try and restore itself during the months after having a baby, many mothers feel the skin on their post-baby tummies could have a little help. Thermage on the abdomen will help tighten the skin and help with its elasticity.

Arms, knees and buttocks also respond well to Thermage. At About Face Skin Care we have the Body Handpiece that can be used on suitable parts of the body. With a larger surface area, body Thermage treatments can be faster and more comfortable.

Pro Tip: How To Get The Most Out Of Your Treatments

Patients always want to know how to get the best results.

To get the most out of your Thermage it is important to be well hydrated. That doesn’t mean have a glass of water in the morning before treatment! It means being conscious of your water intake for at least two days before and the day of treatment. Those famous 6-8 glasses of water everyone recommends you drink daily are important, not just for your general health, but RF (Radio Frequency) treatments, like Thermage, work better when you are properly hydrated. Also, remember if you drink coffee and caffeinated drinks like Green Tea, Black Tea or Coke you should be drinking even more water as these drinks dehydrate. Well hydrated skin also looks better!  (This is a good practice even when not thinking about Thermage!)

Improved Skin-Tightening Treatments

Over the years the comfort level of Thermage treatments has greatly improved. Thermage’s vibrating hand-piece and developments in its treatment tips make for the most comfortable Thermage treatments. However, the areas where nerve-endings lie close to the surface of the skin and the neck continue to be the most sensitive. The discomfort one feels is a brief flash of heat. As soon as the “pulse” stops the feeling is gone. The pulse is over as soon as you detect it. Your experienced About Face provider will adjust your treatment settings according to your feedback.

With hundreds of treatments and over ten years’ experience you can be guaranteed About Face will give you the best Thermage treatment possible.
