Thermage or Focus Ultrason – Skin Tightening
Patients concerned about skin irregularities such as wrinkles and loose skin may consider radio frequency skin tightening as a nonsurgical alternative for facial rejuvenation. This technology is one of the biggest breakthroughs for the anti-aging market.
Thermage or Focus Ultrason are performed in hospital and does not require anesthesia. We will mark the target areas, apply a cool gel to the surface of the skin, and gently roll the skin with a small circular hand piece that emits RF waves. The energy waves targets the tissue just below the skin’s surface.
They are sent through a tiny probe that distributes bursts of radiofrequency energy, heating the tissue to a desired temperature hot enough to stimulate the production of collagen.
WHAT TO EXPECT
During treatment, although the patient will feel the heat from the laser device, patients generally do not feel any pain or discomfort. The treated areas may remain red and swollen for several hours after the procedure, but patients can otherwise resume their normal activities. Results start appearing within 2 days of treatment, but it takes several months for the full effect to become visible as the collagen production does its work. Some patients may require multiple treatment sessions. Results can last up to 2-3 years.
