  • 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.

  • 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

Frequently Asked Questions

Since Thermage uses radiofrequency, you may feel slight heat and vibration followed by a mild cooling sensation. While many people find this tolerable, and even enjoyable, you are able to take over-the-counter (OTC) pain medication beforehand to minimize any discomfort you may experience.

No! You can immediately resume your normal activities. There are very few side effects associated with Thermage. Some people experience slight swelling and redness in the area, which subsides after just a few hours in most cases.

Thermage is a one-time session that offers results within days. People will continue to see improvements up to six months after treatment. There is no need for maintenance or additional treatment after that.

Thermage can be used on mostly all parts of the body: eyelids, cheeks, neck, hands, arms, legs, abdomen, and buttocks. This offers a lot of variety to people looking to tighten sagging skin.
