Thermage Q & A

What is Thermage?

Thermage smoothes wrinkles and fine lines through radiofrequency technology. It also tightens sagging skin and contours for a younger looking appearance. Thermage treatments by Dr. Lee at Biz MedSpa help return your skin to a more youthful glow despite aging. Thermage treatment is noninvasive, so no injections or cutting are required for safe and lasting results.

How does Thermage smooth wrinkles?

Collagen keeps your skin firm and tight. As you age, collagen production under the skin slows, causing wrinkles and sagging. Heat stimulates collagen production. Thermage skin tightening treatments rely on radiofrequency technology to deliver heat through a handheld device for collagen production.

The device heats the lower layers of skin while keeping the top layer cool and comfortable. The heat increases collagen production in the treated areas. With additional collagen, your skin naturally firms and tightens, reducing wrinkles and sagging skin on many parts of your body.

What happens during a Thermage treatment?

Dr. Lee ensures you’re comfortable for your treatment by explaining the process of Thermage and what you should expect. Most treatments last between 30-90 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

He uses the radiofrequency heated device on your skin, heating the collagen-rich layers of your skin. You’re unlikely to feel any pain or soreness but may notice a vibration on your skin. While slight redness or swelling may occur, it's usually gone within the first 24 hours after treatment. You’ll notice visible results right away after only one treatment. With little to no downtime, you can resume normal activities immediately after treatment.

How long do Thermage results last?

As the collagen production in the area improves, so does the appearance of your skin. The most noticeable results happen between two to six months after your treatment. Improvement may continue for up to two years after only one treatment.

Dr. Lee recommends treating areas with loose skin such as around your:

  • Eyes
  • Neck
  • Knees
  • Belly
  • Hands
  • Buttocks

Dr. Lee’s expert advice for loose skin areas offers you an alternative to painful surgery with long recovery times.
