What is Thermage®?
Referred to as a facelift without surgery, Thermage® delivers radio frequency energy beneath the surface of the skin to immediately tighten the outer epidermal layer. It’s a safe, non-invasive skin tightening procedure that’s clinically proven to help tighten and contour your skin. Its unique deep-heating technology stimulates and renews your own collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin.
Thermage® is completely non-invasive — no surgery or injections. Unlike lasers, Thermage® works on all skin types and tones. The procedure is typically performed in a single session, and there’s little to no downtime, so you can quickly resume your normal routine.

Thermage Before & After
How Does Thermage® Skin Tightening Work?
To understand how Thermage® works, it helps to know a little about how your skin works. The skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich under layer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer (also known as the fat layer) that has a web of collagen fibers running through it.
As you age, collagen in these three layers breaks down and your skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Treatments that target only the epidermis don’t address the collagen deficiency in the dermis or the inner subcutaneous layer.
Thermage® is the only non-invasive procedure available that tightens and renews your skin’s collagen in all three layers. How? Thermage’s unique Capacitive Radio Frequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s under layer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing immediate skin tightening, along with improved tone and texture. The improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment, due to new collagen growth.
Thermage® skin tightening is safer than invasive cosmetic procedures and it works on all skin types.
The Skin Tightening Procedure
During the skin tightening treatment, you’ll feel a brief, heat sensation each time Thermage® delivers energy to the under layers of your skin. This indicates that your collagen is being stimulated. Thermage® is proven to be very safe. Side effects are generally mild, usually nothing more than redness in the treatment areas.
