As we age collagen production slows down, skin loses its elasticity and the contours of the face and body appear less defined. Normal changes in skin that come as we age include more visible wrinkles and sagging skin, uneven texture, dryness, and thinning of the superficial layer of the skin.

The Private Clinic of Harley Street is one of few clinics in the UK to offer the revolutionary non-surgical Thermage CPT skin tightening treatment. Thermage has been described as a Non-Surgical Facelift and is recognised for its body skin tightening results.

Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure that helps tighten and contour your skin in a single treatment—with no surgery, no injections, and no downtime. Instead, Thermage stimulates your body’s natural renewal of collagen, which creates subtle, natural looking results. Thermage is an effective treatment for skin tightening on the face, neck and décolletage, as well as the body. The treatment is an effective solution for sagging skin, loose jowls or lack of definition in the jawline, sagging skin under the chin and wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and forehead.

Thermage involves no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime, and Thermage works on all skin types on and off the face. It produces subtle and gradual results resulting in smooth, sleek skin and an overall younger looking appearance.

  • Aftercare

Thermage Treatment

Thermage is a safe and effective treatment that heats the deep and collagen rich layers of your skin using radiofrequency technology. This heat works to remodel the existing collage as well as increasing the production of new collagen which as a result will improve the overall texture and smoothness of the skin.

Thermage can be used on the;

Face –  Thermage treatment is perfect for improving the appearance of loose jowls and sagging skin that can cause us to look tired and run down. The radiofrequency treatment works to smooth lines and wrinkles and remodels the collagen to improve the overall health of the skin.

Eyes – Hooded eyes and furrowed brows can cause us to look older than we actually are and are a tell-tale sign of ageing. Thermage treatment can be used around the upper and lower eyelids to help improve a more youthful and rested appearance.

The Body – As we age, areas on our body can show the appearance of sagging skin, dimples and bulges. The Thermage treatment can be used to help smooth the skin and in some cases can temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite.

We start the Thermage treatment by carrying out a deep cleanse on the area that is being treated, The Doctor will then apply a grid to the skin to ensure the area being treated is accurate. The Doctor will apply a small amount of gel and proceed to start the treatment, you will feel slight cooling from the treatment tip and a gentle vibration along with heat. The heat from the treatment is the Thermage targeting the deep tissues needed to stimulate and tighten collagen. Thermage is recommended as a one off treatment, however for best results we recommended maintenance once a year.

After your Thermage Treatment

You may notice some initial changes after treatment but the majority of the tightening will take place gradually over a period of time.

The results will continue to form over a 6 month period with sagging or wrinkled skin being replaced with smoother and tighter skin that has an improved tone and texture helping you achieve an overall younger looking appearance.

Patients who have had more than one treatment may notice further improvements over time.

As Thermage targets the deep layers of the skin there is minimal downtime and you will be able to return to normal activities straight away.

  • How is Thermage different from other skin tightening treatments?

    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.

    Also, Thermage generally achieves results in a single treatment compared to other technologies requiring multiple treatment sessions.

  • How soon will I see the results?

    Most clients will notice an improvement straight after treatment.

    The effects continue to improve for up to 6 months following a single treatment.

    Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and natural ageing process.

    You will be able to discuss the fees and obtain an accurate quote during your initial consultation.

    Consultations with our expert thermage practitioners are £25 however this cost is redeemable against the price of any thermage treatment that you wish to book following your consultation.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
