Thermage: Non-Invasive Tightening and Lifting Treatment
Dr. Cyrus Chess in Norwalk, CT, offers Thermage CPT, a non-invasive treatment for skin laxity. Unlike other skin tightening therapies, Thermage requires just one treatment session, with no down time making it an easy fit for a busy schedule. During a consultation, Dr. Chess can perform an evaluation to determine if Thermage is the right treatment to help you achieve the rejuvenated appearance you desire.
What is Thermage?
Thermage is an alternative to laser therapy. Instead of laser energy, this system uses radiofrequency energy. This energy penetrates the surface of the skin, or the epidermis, to target the dermis. Thermage heats this deep layer of skin to tighten and tone, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It also encourages new collagen production, which continues months after treatment. Thermage usually requires just one treatment session and there is no downtime.
Is Thermage Right for Me?
If you are unhappy with your appearance due to loose or wrinkled skin around the eyes, jawline, neck, abdomen, thighs, or another area, Dr. Chess may recommend Thermage. This treatment is best for patients with mild to moderate laxity in the skin. The thickness of your skin and its overall health will determine whether you qualify for Thermage. It is generally best suited to those with thin or moderately thick skin. Dr. Chess will perform a thorough evaluation to determine if Thermage is right for you. He has a comprehensive line of laser technology he can use as an alternative if needed.
Thermage is one of the longest-lasting non-surgical skin tightening treatments available.
What Should I Expect during Treatment?
Dr. Chess offers Thermage CPT, which uses advanced technology to provide enhanced comfort during treatments. This technology produces bursts of cool air as it works. You will feel pulses of heat interspersed with the cooling sensations. Treatment time is around 90 minutes.
There is no downtime with Thermage. This means you can return to work or any other activities right away. 99% of patients leave the office with no visible side effects. Occasionally a red blotch may linger for a few hours.
Patients typically need just one treatment to achieve long-lasting results, and often notice immediate improvements. Your skin will continue to improve for up to six months. You can expect your Thermage results to last for up to three years. As collagen production slows and the aging process continues, results will fade over time. You can undergo re-treatment to maintain your results as needed.
