Thermage treatment works by using best-in-class radiofrequency technology to heat collagen fibres deep in the skin and underlying tissue.
Thermage transfers heat to the epidermis which not only tightens the existing collagen but also promotes the skin to produce more.
The radiofrequency technology produces electrical currents that cause the collagen to tighten which then encourages the skin to contract and become tighter and smoother.
The Thermage CPT system has a uniform heating action that causes the structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten while stimulating collagen growth. Over time, new and remodelled collagen is produced to further tighten and contour the skin.
Most individuals experience skin tightening and smoothing of the skin for 6 months and the results can last up to 10 years however this does depend on factors such as smoking, severe sun damage and skin disorders.
