Thermage Body Shape Procedures
Thermage’s Body Shape procedure is a non-invasive procedure that can help tighten and firm body skin with just one treatment, without surgery or injections and little to no downtime. Fight crepey skin, flabby skin and temporarily improve cellulite all in a single session.
Thermage Body Thermatips are designed for use on patients who are not significantly overweight but want to do more than just tighten and smooth their bodies.
*”I’m really happy with the Thermage results. There is a dramatic difference in the appearance of my lower stomach. Not only is it flatter, but no loose skin hangs and I even lost inches in my waist and hips.” Crystal M.
Large tip for fast treatments
The larger Thermage Body Tip 16.0 offers faster, more impressive deeper sub structural response than previous technology – with 5 times the surface coverage of standard Thermage Tips.
The Thermage Body Tip 16.0 employs Comfort Pulse Technology, a special energy delivery method designed to improve patient comfort while maximizing results. The 16.0 handpiece enables this innovative technology to deliver the energy with short, rapid pulses at varying energy levels over the duration of the treatment. This provides deep heating of the tissue at a therapeutic level that patients find easily tolerable.
Satisfied patients have benefited from:
- Tightening firming of loose skin on the abdomen, thighs, arms, knees and buttocks
- A single treatment with no surgery or injections and little to no downtime
Who is a Thermage Body candidate?
The Body Shape procedure is ideal for men and women who are not significantly overweight and are looking to firm sagging and loose skin on the arms, legs, abdomen and buttocks.
Results vary from subtle to dramatic. Generally, some improvement is immediately visible and continues for up to six months. Results are long lasting depending on your skin condition and the aging process
How does the Thermage procedure work?
The procedure works by heating deep collagen fibers in the skin and underlying tissue, while protecting the skin’s surface with a cooling spray. The treatment is performed with the ThermaCool™ device. A ThermaTip, attached to a handheld device, briefly touches the skin, delivering the non-invasive RF energy deep beneath the skin.
This deep uniform heating action causes the deep structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten skin and renew facial contours.
How long does the Thermage procedure take?
The Thermage procedure is a completely non-invasive, safe treatment that is performed only in a doctor’s office. Depending on the size of the area(s) to be treated, the procedure may take as little as 20 minutes or up to two hours.
How many treatments will I need?
Unlike many laser procedures requiring four or more sessions, a single Thermage treatment produces results in the majority of patients. Dr. Pilest will determine the course of treatment that is right for you, based on your needs and goals.
When will I see results?
Some patients see slight immediate results, though these immediate results could be from slight swelling. Improvements appear gradually over a two to six month time period following a single treatment session.
