If you’ve started to notice more fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity but you aren’t interested in surgical procedures, you could be a good candidate for Thermage® skin tightening. The in-office treatment uses radiofrequency energy to treat common signs of aging on the face and body.
At Miami Skin and Vein, Dr. Shaun Patel specializes in achieving incredible aesthetic results using minimally or noninvasive treatments. His patients rave about these benefits of Thermage.
There’s Virtually No Downtime with Thermage
One of the things patients love most about Thermage is the ability to get back to their lives immediately after the treatment. You might experience mild swelling or redness around the treatment area, but this generally resolves in a day.
Post-treatment guidelines involve avoiding sun exposure or wearing sunscreen (which we always recommend for healthy skin), skipping harsh cosmetics for twenty-four hours, and moisturizing your skin.
Thermage Could Take Years Off Your Face
Losing collagen and elastin is a natural part of aging, but it’s also what causes fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. During your treatment, the Thermage device will use radiofrequency energy to kickstart collagen production. The result is smoother and tighter skin. While many factors influence how we age, patients generally enjoy the benefits of Thermage for many years. Dr. Patel does recommend maintenance treatments with Thermage every 1-1.5 years depending on your age and condition.
Fat loss in the face is also common as we age. While Thermage can improve the appearance of sunken areas by tightening sagging skin, more advanced volume loss might be better treated by dermal fillers. Dr. Patel is recognized by Allergan and Galderma (the makers of most major injectables) as a highly-skilled provider and frequently combines or alternates anti-aging treatments to achieve the best possible results.
Thermage Can Treat Body Skin Laxity Too
In addition to giving you a more youthful-looking face, Thermage can do the same for your body. These treatments often address:
- Sagging skin around the knees
- Loose skin on the abdomen
- Cellulite on the thighs or buttocks
- Loose skin at the upper arms
