As the skin ages, it loses its elasticity, compromising the appearance with sagging jowls, sinking cheeks and a flabby neck. Unappealing laxity can also strike in the buttocks, arms, legs, abdomen, hands and eyelids. This may cause a significant drop in self-confidence and a feeling of anxiety in social situations.
Luckily there is an excellent solution. The Thermage skin tightening system relies on radiofrequency energy to penetrate the skin’s deep layers, stimulating lost reserves of collagen, which is the body’s natural protein responsible for skin resiliency, youthfulness and hydration.
Discover the exquisite results by browsing through our online library of before and after photography. You will also have a chance to view more photographs during your confidential consultation with Dr. Stevens.
Thermage is appropriate for any man or woman looking to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and tighten sagging, crepe-like skin. It can also improve the appearance of cellulite anywhere on the body.
Dr. Stevens’ patients usually see improvements in their skin, within 1-5 days of their first session. The full benefits of treatment are usually apparent after 2 months, however. You will continue to see changes for up to 6 months, and you may not need to repeat Thermage for several years, depending on your individual anatomy.
Our providers will use a specially-designed Thermage hand piece to deliver the radiofrequency energy. When the wand makes contact with your skin, you may feel a chilled sensation followed by a warm sensation that lets you know the therapy is working. You will not require anesthesia, as the sensations are painless. Of course, the provider is always willing to give you an oral sedative if you feel the need for it.
Once the treatment is over, you can return to normally scheduled activity right away. Rest assured that any temporary redness, swelling or tenderness will abate within 24 hours.
During this initial session, Dr. Stevens will examine your skin, taking photographs for reference. He will review your medical history, and begin to create a plan of action that is personalized to your aesthetic wishes. He will map out the exact areas that will receive the Thermage skin tightening.
Dr. Stevens will be pleased to share with you our library of before and after photographs for former Thermage patients, and you may also read about their experiences on our Testimonials page.
