The late humorist, author, and filmmaker Nora Ephron felt bad about her aging neck, and now you know why. Whether you already have a full-blown turkey neck or just some jowls and a double chin, you long for the tight, long swan neck of your youth.
Once upon a time, the only remedy for the sags and bags of early aging was plastic surgery. But the world — and technology — has evolved since then. Donald Lee, DO, founder of Biz MedSpa in Fremont, California, offers SoltaMedical®”s Thermage® nonsurgical skin-tightening treatments for women and men who want to restore and tighten skin on their faces and bodies.
Thermage doesn’t remove your outer skin layer with lasers, require any incisions, or even need a needle prick. Instead, the handheld device transmits the power of radiofrequency (RF) energy through your skin to heat up the inner, collagen-rich layers while leaving the surface comfortable and untouched. Dr. Lee recommends Thermage to:
Look back in that oh-too-truthful mirror to identify the areas of sagging and drooping that bother you. You can discuss any part of your face or body that needs tightening when you have your Thermage consultation at Biz MedSpa.
The beauty of Thermage is that it doesn’t just tighten and lift your skin the way a surgical facelift would. Instead, the RF energy triggers your skin’s natural healing process, known as collagen remodeling.
As you age, your skin loses the proteins called collagen and elastin, which make it thick, firm, and elastic. That’s one reason why you lost those high, firm apple cheeks of your youth.
Thermage heats up the collagen layer in your dermis, forcing it to contract. It also instigates inflammation that washes away old debris and toxins, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin. Over the next weeks to months, your treated skin busily rebuilds itself.
Within weeks to months after your Thermage treatment, your skin doesn’t just look and feel better, it is better. It’s literally newer. The skin you see and feel was created because of your Thermage treatment.
Many nonsurgical skin therapies require a series of treatments before you notice rejuvenation. With Thermage, most women and men only need one treatment.
But instead of being one-and-done, Thermage is one-and-keeps-on-getting-better. While you may notice an improvement in the tone and texture of your skin just a few weeks after your treatment, the collagen remodeling process continues for months.
As your skin continues to rebuild itself, it gets tighter, firmer, and more youthful-looking. Wrinkles fill in and your skin becomes thicker and stronger, too. Benefits include:

Although Thermage’s RF energy creates heat to trigger coagulation and tissue remodeling in your skin, you stay comfortable throughout your procedure. The Thermage FLX® system vibrates as it delivers RF energy.
The vibration distracts your nerves, so you only feel alternating sensations of warmth and cooling when the device touches your skin. You may have a little skin pinkness or swelling for about one day after your treatment.
You don’t need a recovery period after Thermage. You can apply make-up and go straight back to your normal activities.
Over the next few weeks to months, you might start to think your mirror’s lying to you, but it’s not: You really do look younger. Thermage turns back time so that your skin acts like younger skin, which means it looks and feels younger, too. Dr. Lee recommends annual touch-ups to keep your skin fresh and smooth.
