Thermage is based on a simple premises -- that restoring and stimulating new collagen growth will naturally make your skin look younger. As we age, collagen fibers found beneath the outer layer of our skin (the epidermis) eventually loosen and droop. To compound matters, the body's ability to make collagen declines as we age. Genetics, sun exposure and smoking also contribute to collagens loss of firmness.
During a Thermage procedure, Dr. Safko uses a wand to apply radio frequency energy to the designated areas. The energy from the Thermage wand heats collagen in the dermis (the skin's lower layers) which make the collagen fibers contract. This contraction tightens the epidermis and makes it look smoother.
Dr. Safko performs Thermage treatments on the face - including eyes and lips - as well as the neck, hands, abdomen, buttocks and knees. The treatment can also combat cellulite - the stubborn bane of many people's existence. A chance to skip the scalpel and avoid anesthesia and still repair aging skin..sounds like a no brainer! With little to no downtime you may be treated in the morning and back to your normal day activites in the afternoon including working out in the gym or outdoors (with sunscreen of course)!
