THERMACOOL

The Science

  • Thermacool is a device that uses radiofrequency waves to safely tighten the skin without surgery.
  • Thermacool works by bulk heating the deepest layers of the skin, leaving the surface intact. This causes the collagen layers to contract over the ensuing 4 to 6 months resulting in a tightening and subtle lifting effect.
  • Thermacool is manufactured by Thermage, Inc. in Hayward, California

 

The Indications

  • Full face laxity
  • Eyelid laxity
  • Body laxity
  • Cellulite

 

The Treatment

  • Depending on the area, treatments take from a half to one and a half hours.
  • There is no special pre treatment prep. Pain medication is provided to keep patients comfortable. Patients need a ride home.
  • Each impact feels like a pinpoint of steadily rising heat, immediately followed by a cooling sensation.
  • There is zero pain and zero down time following the procedure so that patients may return to normal activities the next day.
  • Most patients need only one treatment. Patients with more laxity at the start may prefer to have multiple or extra partial treatments.
  • Results vary, but have been visible in at least 90% of patients. They have lasted 5 years in some cases. Side effects are extremely rare.
