What is Thermage?

Many of our patients wonder, "What is Thermage?"  They have heard of Thermage, and may even know that it is used for skin tightening, but often people don't know exactly what Thermage is.  Thermage CPT is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment used to tighten and contour the skin.  Thermage uses radiofrequency energy, which is different from a traditional laser, to stimulate collagen production in the skin.  By stimulating collagen production, Thermage makes the skin tighter and smoother.  Since Thermage stimulates your body's own collagen, the results last for years after only one treatment. Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Thermage CPT is commonly used to stimulate collagen on the lower face and jawline, in order to tighten sagging skin and loose jowls.  Thermage also tightens and lifts the eyelids, while smoothing out the appearance of aging eyelids.  Lastly, Thermage can be combined with treatments such as Cellulaze cellulite treatment and Zeltiq CoolSculpting in order to improve the appearance of lax skin on the body." All Thermage treatments are performed at Schweiger Dermatology in Midtown Manhattan.  Whether you are treating your face, neck, eyelids, or body, you will feel comfortable during your Thermage treatment.  The treatments take between 45 minutes and 90 minutes, depending on the area being treated.  There is no downtime after the Thermage treatment, even for treatment of the eyelids and the face. Improvement after Thermage treatments can be appreciated after two to four months.  This is the amount of time that it takes for collagen to turn over and regenerate.  As time goes on, more and more improvement is seen after the Thermage treatment; final improvement can be seen six months after your treatment.
