Tighten saggy skin for a more youthful look
Sagging skin adds years to your appearance. Thermage® uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to boost collagen growth, giving you firmer-looking skin around your face, eyes, neck, and body with little downtime and no surgery. Tighten up loose areas for a look that’s healthy, refreshed, and more youthful.

How does Thermage® work?
We use Thermage Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT), which is more advanced, faster, and more comfortable than the previous Radiofrequency (RF) model. It includes a vibrating hand piece that makes the treatment as pleasant as possible, usually taking away the need for any pain meds.
Uniform RF heat delivery boosts collagen growth, giving you fresh, firm skin that fights the signs of aging. CPT technology is delicate enough to use on hooded or crepey eyelids, where it lifts and “opens up” the eye area. This treatment is also popular after pregnancy or weight loss for anyone looking to firm up sagging body skin.
You’ll be at the clinic for about 2-3 hours. The tip of the treatment device alternates between deeply-penetrating heat for collagen stimulation and a cooling sensation that keeps you comfortable. There’s no anaesthetic required.
Afterwards, you might notice some redness or swelling, but this will go away within a day or two. You’ll see subtle results immediately, and it gets better from there. Your skin will continue to look firmer and smoother over the next 6 months as healthy new collagen grows.
Since Thermage® doesn’t use lasers, it’s great for all skin types and tones. There’s no need to avoid the sun before and after treatment, so feel free to come in during the summer.
For the best results, we recommend a 6-month follow-up treatment of special “vector” zones on the face, which targets any areas that need extra attention. How long the results last will vary depending on your skin condition and natural aging process. While this treatment isn’t as dramatic as surgery, you can look forward to firmer skin that reveals a more youthful appearance.
