Thermage has been the word around celebrities for the past decade. Made famous by Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah, this popular treatment uses radiofrequency technology to lift and tighten the skin. Thermage is non-invasive and requires no downtime, making it the perfect treatment for people on the go.
How does it work?
Thermage is actually not a laser and keeps the surface of the skin completely intact. (Non-Ablative)
So how does it tighten the skin?
RF technology heats the deep layers of the skin, resulting in tissue remodelling, and the production of new collagen and elastin. It’s the perfect alternative or complement to injectables and more invasive laser treatments.
One of the best complements to Thermage is Fraxel.
Kim Kardashian has said she routinely gets Fraxel treatments done to maintain her glowing complexion… I wonder if she knows about ThermaFrax.
ThermaFrax is a procedure that combines the skin tightening effect of Thermage with the resurfacing element of Fraxel.
It’s a beautiful combination of treatments resulting in a fresher, more youthful glow to the skin. It frees the skin of fine lines, and sagging.
How does Fraxel work?
Fraxel is a dual wavelength laser that can treat multiple skin conditions all in one treatment. The 1927 wavelength targets more superficial pigment, and the 1550 wavelength effectively targets deep lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and stretch marks. Each of these treatments can be combined or used alone and both will result in all-over rejuvenation of the skin.
ThermaFrax is the gold star anti-aging treatment. It not only rejuvenates the face, it also treats the eyes, jowls, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
