Thermage is the popular non-surgical face and body lift that many celebrities are using and loving. Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow stated after one session, “I feel like it took five years off my face.” Celebrities regularly have a lot more resources to use on their appearance and it proves to be a good sign that with all the various treatments and procedures around, celebs are choosing Thermage. This quick, safe, and easy procedure has been a hit since its introduction and remains to be an applicable and effective treatment.
What is Thermage?
Thermage is an advanced rejuvenation treatment that uses radio frequency energy to help smooth, contour, and tighten skin. It has a great rejuvenating effect that leaves your skin looking fresh and invigorated. Thermage works by heating up the collagen-rich layers in the skin. This helps tighten the existing collagen in the skin as well as stimulating the production of more collagen. This results in smoother, less sagging, and tighter skin.
Treating the Face and the Body
Dr. Grant Stevens, a board certified plastic surgeon from California, explains how Thermage can be used to rejuvenate both your face and body. “Such rejuvenation is not limited to the face. Lasers and radiofrequencies can be put to use anywhere on the body,” says Dr. Stevens. Non-surgical contouring of the body is now occurring with exceptional precision.
For those who are scared to have plastic surgery that would require an invasive procedure, Thermage is a great alternative. In comparison to having to go under the knife or receive an injection, this procedure is less intimidating. “I think what we find is that people want to look great and as long as they’re looking great, they stay away from knives and sharp objects,” says Stevens.
Results that Last
There are many advantages with Thermage. It is safe, non-invasive, works on all skin-types and colors, best of all; you will notice results after one session. There is little to no down time and your revitalized look can last for many years. Speak with your board certified plastic surgeon to see if Thermage is the right option for you and find out why stars like Gwyenth Paltrow keep going back for more!
