What does Thermage treatment do for New York City area residents?
While there are several methods of non-invasive treatments available in New York City to address the unwanted signs of aging, Thermage therapy has just recently introduced a TT tip for the CPT Thermage unit which has provided better results than in the past for facial non surgical tightening.. Thermage is a treatment used to soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. Patients who are troubled by skin laxity can enjoy using Thermage as an alternative to more invasive solutions such as plastic surgery.
Thermage utilizes radiofrequency energy to heat the lower levels of the skin to produce collagen, tighten the skin, and give patients a more youthful appearance. Thermage is indicated for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids. It is also cleared for the temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. In addition, Thermage is the first and only system to receive FDA clearance for non-invasive, energy-based eyelid treatment.
Thermage reduces problematic areas of the body. Patients may notice an improvement in stretch marks and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, while also seeing enhanced texture and tone. This is due to the collagen production stimulated by the radiofrequency energy delivered by the device. It works on all skin types and colors, and can rejuvenate the skin without surgery.
One of the most desirable aspects of Thermage is the ability to enjoy no downtime. While some patients may notice some redness after treatment, this typically does not last longer than 24 hours. Patients should also protect their skin from the sun with proper sunscreen. They are able to return to their regular activities such as work and fun immediately after their treatment.
The best candidates for Thermage are those between the ages of 30 and 60 who have realistic expectations. Patients can ask their dermatologist for before and after photos of patients who have undergone Thermage treatments to get a better idea of what they may see in regards to results.
