AN FDA-CLEARED RADIOFREQUENCY TREATMENT TO TIGHTEN LOOSE SKIN.
Full face laxity
Depending on the area, your treatment may take up to an hour
There is no special pre-treatment prep. Non-narcotic pain medication can be taken ahead of time to feel comfortable. If so desired, patients can take advantage of our FDA-cleared Pronox, which delivers a light laughing gas
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 immediately.
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 usually last 2 to 3 years. Side effects are extremely rare.
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
