Thermage’s noninvasive application of radio frequency energy works on two levels
• Tightens Existing Collagen
• Activates New Collagen Production
Collagen that has begun to weaken gets a heat boost that shrinks and tightens. “Lazy” fibroblasts (collagen-making cells) get a wake-up call and go back to work. Over a 6 month period, those new collagen strands provide a tighter skin wrapping.
Periodic re-treatment can keep the positive prevention cycle active, which keeps you looking more like the version of yourself you prefer.
As Dermatology colleague Brandith Irwin notes, “… it helps to prevent sagging over the next year or two. Preserving what you have is still a benefit.”
