Where Radiance Meets Rejuvenation

Tighter and youthful-looking skin is possible without undergoing a surgical procedure to achieve it. Perfect Skin Center with locations in Tempe and Scottsdale, AZ, provides an innovative and non-surgical skin-tightening treatment called Thermage that uses radiofrequency energy to treat skin laxity and naturally restore a youthful appearance to the skin.

What Is Thermage?

Thermage is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment that is able to address visible signs of aging with radiofrequency therapy. The treatment doesn’t require surgical or invasive procedures, incisions, sutures, or needles. Patients can achieve their desired results after a single treatment and maintain those results long-term.

What Are the Treatment Benefits?

Patients who undergo a Thermage treatment can expect a quick and comfortable experience that helps reverse visible aging after just one treatment. There’s no significant downtime or discomfort, and after just one session, you can achieve results that last for years. Other treatment benefits include the following:

  • Tighter skin
  • Improved skin elasticity
  • Visible reduction in the signs of aging on the face, eye area, and body
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • Long-lasting results

How Does It Work?

This device uses radiofrequency energy to naturally tighten the skin. With the natural aging process comes the inevitable breakdown of collagen fibers in the dermal layers. Collagen is a skin protein that prevents sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. It keeps the skin firm, but when it breaks down, lines and wrinkles form, and the skin can become loose and begin to sag.

This device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, which causes water molecules to separate from the collagen fibers, leading to an immediate contraction that tightens the skin. After treatment, the body will also increase collagen production over time, which will continue to improve the firmness and overall appearance of the skin in the weeks and months that follow.

What Can Thermage Treat?

We design Thermage treatment plans to address skin laxity, lines, wrinkles, and creases around the mouth, aging in the eye area, and lines on the forehead. We also use the device to improve the definition of the jawline and beneath the chin.

Not only does this treatment soften lines on the face and treat facial skin laxity, but we also use it in different areas of the body to improve body contours by tightening the skin, reducing the appearance of crêpey skin, and promoting smoother skin on the abdomen and legs. We also have treatments to address the eye area to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, reduce eye hooding, and promote an awake, well-rested, and youthful appearance.

What Happens During a Treatment?

During the 60 to 90-minute treatment, we’ll use the Thermage radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper layers of the skin where collagen fibers are produced. The tip vibrates and cools the skin’s surface during treatment to promote patient comfort. As those existing collagen fibers contract, the body will also respond by increasing collagen production, and you’ll notice tighter skin after one session and continued improvements for the following six months.

You’ll feel a warming sensation throughout the treatment when the device touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to promote your comfort throughout the session. When it’s over, you can resume your normal daily activities. You may have some redness in the treatment area for the first 24 hours that will subside the following day.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Unlike many radiofrequency devices, you won’t have to schedule multiple sessions to achieve your desired results. You can expect improvements in your skin after a single session and then schedule maintenance treatments to continue targeting the same area or to address multiple areas of concern. After meeting with you to discuss your treatment goals, we will design the perfect treatment plan for you.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

You’ll see the best results within the first few weeks following treatment as your body responds by increasing collagen and elastin in the treatment area. Your results will continue to improve for the first two to six months following your treatment. You’ll notice smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin, a significant improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and improved skin elasticity.

How Long Will My Results Last?

After undergoing a single treatment, patients can expect their results to last anywhere from one to two years. Results vary based on each patient’s skin condition at the time of treatment and how the aging process affects their skin.

You can extend your results when you undergo a skin rejuvenation treatment plan with additional treatment options, take the necessary steps to protect your skin from sun exposure and maintain a consistent skincare regimen with quality and professional products.

Is There Social Downtime?

You won’t have to plan around social downtime after a Thermage treatment, but you will need to commit to wearing a broad spectrum of quality sunscreen after your treatment to prevent sun damage and accelerated aging. You must also commit to a customized skincare regimen to ensure lasting results. We will make product recommendations and tell you how to care for your skin after your treatment.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for Thermage are patients looking for a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that can double as an alternative to a surgical facelift. While this treatment won’t deliver the exact results of a surgical facelift, it will visibly contour and tighten the skin in a way that topical products and other treatments cannot.

Patients who want to address loose skin on the face, wrinkles around the eye area, and skin laxity or crêpey skin in different areas of the body make good treatment candidates.
