Thermage® treatment is a radical new skin tightening therapy. The results it offers could be the closest you will come to having a face lift, without going under the surgeon’s knife.
It takes less than two hours in our office to receive Thermage® treatment and the results can be dramatic, as well as long lasting. What’s more, they can be achieved on almost any area of the body.
How Thermage® treatment works
Have you ever used your hands to pull the skin on your face upwards and see what it looked like before gravity took its toll? Fillers can be incredibly effective at smoothing lines and wrinkles but they can’t reverse gravity and pull everything upwards, back into place. Amazingly, Thermage® treatment can.
The collagen in your skin is a triple helix protein. Think of it a bit like rope, and, much like polypropylene rope, it contracts when it’s heated to the right temperature. During the Thermage® treatment a Thermacool® device is used to heat selected areas of the skin, heating the collagen to between 55 and 62 degrees. This causes it to contract, tightening and lifting the facial structure.
Thermage® treatment makes previously impossible to achieve results, possible.
Where can Thermage® treatment be used?
Most usually, Thermage® treatment is used to lift and tighten the face, including the eyelids and eye area. However, recent developments in technology means that it can now be used on almost any area of the body. We offer tailored treatments for tightening skin on the neck, décolletage, tummy, thighs, arms and knees, as well as body contouring for the tummy, love handles, buttocks and thighs. The treatment can also be effective on hands and lips.
This revolutionary treatment can help in myriad ways, practically anywhere on the body. If you’re wondering whether it could work for you, the best thing to do is book a free consultation with Dr Cronin.
Are there any downsides?
Thermage® treatment isn’t cheap. This cutting edge technology comes at a price but the price tag is less than that of cosmetic surgery. Not to mention the fact that treatment and recovery times are much shorter.
There is discomfort involved in the procedure. The nature of the treatment enables us to work within your personal tolerance but, nonetheless, some discomfort should be expected. In a very small number of cases blistering of the skin has been noted and in a smaller number of cases patients have experienced loss of subcutaneous fat. All of these things will be discussed and fully explained to you at your initial consultation.
When to consider Thermage® treatment
It is entirely up to you when you decide to explore any of the treatments that we offer. It may be that you would like to achieve face lift-style results without going under the knife, or that a surgeon has told you to ‘come back in a few years, when the problem is more significant’ but you want to see results now. You don’t even need to know exactly what treatment you want before you book your free consultation with Dr Cronin. If there is any issue you would like to discuss, simply book your appointment by calling 0800 999 1009 and all treatment options will be discussed when you come in.
