Thermage is a noninvasive procedure in Vancouver that has been known as the “lunchtime facelift.” It tightens and lifts the skin by stimulating the collagen that supports it. There is no surgery, no downtime and no recovery time. It has been featured on Oprah and Good Morning America, and is a very safe and simple procedure. In one single treatment, your skin will be tightened and stimulate your body’s natural renewal of collagen. Thermage treatments are Health Canad and FDA approved.
Thermage is a patented and Health Canada approved RF (radiofrequency) technology that is clinically proven to tighten skin. Thermage renews facial contours. tightens loose and sagging skin on face and eyelids and improves the appearance of cellulite in Vancouver.
One! The vast majority of people only need a single Thermage treatment.
Each time treatment is delivered there is an immediate cool sensation, followed by a brief hot sensation, followed by a cool sensation. Most people return to their regular activities immediately following Thermage. Some people may experience some mild redness (like a sunburn) but It usually quickly subsides. No special treatment is normally needed after a Thermage procedure in Vancouver at Deva Medspa.
Immediately upon completing the procedure, appreciable tightening and lifting are visible. Over the next 6 months, your body takes over and additional collagen is laid down, leading to even more impressive tightening and contouring.
Recently published studies show that improvements continue for at least six months after a single treatment session. Other studies show that thermal collagen changes can last several years, depending on the rate of the aging process.
Just about anywhere! Thermage can be performed on the face, neck, arms, legs, breasts and buttocks.
On the face, Thermage can treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin (“turkey neck”), wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition in the lips. Around the eyes, Thermage can treat under eye bags, hooding, rough texture on the eyelids, wrinkles and fine lines, and other contributors to tired looking eyes. Elsewhere on the body, Thermage can treat wrinkled, crepey, sagging or bulging skin as well as the appearance of cellulite.
Unlike some other procedures, Thermage involves no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime, and Thermage works on all skin colors – on and off the face. While laser treatments and other radiofrequency procedures also tighten skin, no other treatment heats as deeply as Thermage. By heating the innermost layers of skin, Thermage is the most effective at tightening collagen and stimulating the formation of new collagen, which results in tighter skin and an overall younger looking appearance.
Thermage has most commonly been used on the face: includes the area around the mouth, chin, jaw line, jowls, and area under the chin. Recently, Thermage has been approved for your body: abdomen, arms, legs, and eyes. According to Physiology Today survey, 71 percent of women are dissatisfied with their abdominal appearance. Whether it is due to pregnancy or aging, women are seeking ways to get their bodies back in shape. While fat can be lost through diet and exercise, the sagging skin around the abdomen often requires a tummy tuck. Tummy by Thermage is one the newest procedures which provides excellent tightening effect and textural change, without a scapel. The process is a one time treatment which takes less than two hours.
Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure may take up to two hours. Unlike many laser procedures requiring four or more sessions, a single Thermage treatment produces results in the majority of patients. The treating professional will determine the course of treatment that is right for you, based on your needs and goals. Some patients may benefit from additional treatments to meet their satisfaction. Measurable tightening and contouring improvements appear gradually over a two to six month time period following a single treatment session. Unpublished reports by experienced cosmetic doctors indicate that results may last for years and are based on the patient's natural aging process.
