Radio Frequency (Thermage®)
Thermage® is another method for non-invasive facial rejuvenation. It utilizes radio frequency energy to cause thermal injury to the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen, promoting skin tightening. The tip of the radio frequency instrument has a cooling device that prevents skin burns.
Thermage® radio frequency is a good option for those patients who experience skin laxity in the one or more of the following areas:
- Upper and lower extremities
Results of Thermage® radio frequency treatment
Thermage radio frequency treatments can help restore a more youthful appearance, but the results are not as dramatic as invasive procedures. This type of treatment is best used after a facial surgical procedure to enhance the surgery’s results. It can be combined with soft tissue fillers for patients who do not want or are not yet ready for surgery.
This treatment can be more painful than other non-invasive treatments, so patients will be carefully evaluated and properly informed by Dr. Saltz and his team before administering it.
