Thermage

Your Personalized Skin Tightening Solutions with Thermage

Thermage is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment used for skin tightening and contouring. It is an advanced version of the original Thermage procedure, utilizing a unique radiofrequency (RF) technology known as AccuREP, which stands for Accurate Real-time Energy Performance.

This technology allows the device to deliver precise and consistent energy to the targeted areas of the skin, ensuring optimal results while minimizing discomfort.

The Thermage system is designed to target sagging or loose skin on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, and thighs. The RF energy heats the underlying layers of the skin, promoting collagen remodeling and tightening of the skin’s structure over time, which helps to stimulate collagen production in the deep layers of the skin.

3RD GENERATION HIFU by JEISYS – Non-Surgical/Non-Invasive Face Lifting  

As part of ageing, our skin and tissue lose its collagen resulting in Skin Laxity (Face Sagging). How does our face generate new collagen?

What is HIFU?
Our centre is using an Advanced 3rd generation HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) non-invasive treatment for firming, tightening and lifting the skin and deeper tissue(SMAS layer).

How does HIFU works?

Ultrasound therapy (HIFU) shoots ultrasound waves into the skin, where they act by heating targeted tissue at a dual plane, 3mm and 4.5mm depth, tightening SMAS and stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. While there is a noticeable instant tightening, once the body starts producing collagen, the skin tightens and firms significantly.

It’s a precise tightening treatment for the skin and deeper tissues (SMAS) The body’s natural healing and collagen regeneration process produces a new, healthy and tighter appearance of the face, neck and décolleté.

What conditions and areas can be treated with this machine?
General firming, tightening and lifting of the brow, eyes, face, jowl, neck and décolleté

When will I see results?
Generally, the skin will begin to look smoother and tighter after the first treatment, and the results from the treatment will continue to improve for up to six months, as the collagen continues to regenerate. The results will vary, depending on the original condition of the skin and deeper tissue, and degree and cause of damage

How is HIFU treatment carried out?

  • No anaesthetic is required.
  • The treatment takes between 30-60 minutes, depending on the area.
  • A gel will be applied to the treatment area.
  • You may experience a prickling sensation followed by a feeling of mild heat.
  •  Different heads are used for the various depths and skin conditions 

Does HIFU device hurt?
For skin tightening and lifting no anaesthetic is required. Less pain and discomfort using a 3rd generation HIFU.

The levels of treatment can be adjusted to suit patient comfort.

Is HIFU device safe?
Yes, the treatment is safe but it must be carried out by a suitably trained and experienced health care professional to ensure that different areas are treated at the correct levels.

What are the potential downtime and side effects?
You may experience a mild warm sensation for an hour or two, thereafter, virtually no discomfort or downtime is experienced.

The skin may be red for a few hours; this usually resolves in less than 24hours. Swelling is minimal particularly under the eyes (if treated) and resolves in 1-2 days. Makeup may be applied after 24 hours.

After treatment, you can go ahead with your daily activities. If there is swelling, usually it will go away within 3-7days. Besides this, there may be slight aching discomfort which resolves within 1-2 weeks.

This technology is usually not suitable for “Sunken” face as occasionally it may melt a bit of facial subcutaneous fats. Neuropraxia (Temporary Nerve Damage) is rare.

Care following treatment.
The use of a high factor sunscreen (spf 50+) and recovery cream following the treatment is very important to protect the skin during the healing phase and for several weeks following treatment. All your aftercare needs will be discussed by the therapist at the consultation and we are on hand after the treatment to answer your questions.

The main benefits of Thermage include:

  1. How long does Thermage last? 

The duration of the results achieved with Thermage can vary depending on individual factors, including skin condition, age, lifestyle, and the number of treatments received. While some patients may experience noticeable improvements shortly after the procedure, the most significant and long-lasting results typically appear gradually over the following months as collagen continues to remodel.

On average, the results of Thermage can last up to one to two years. However, it’s important to note that individual experiences may vary. Some patients may find that their results last longer, while others may notice a gradual return of laxity or signs of aging sooner.

  1. How many Thermage sessions are usually recommended for optimal results?

The number of Thermage sessions recommended for optimal results can vary depending on individual factors, such as the condition of your skin, the specific areas being treated, and your desired outcome. In many cases, a single Thermage session can provide noticeable improvements in skin tightening and contouring.

In general, if additional sessions are suggested, they are usually spaced several months apart to allow enough time for collagen production and skin rejuvenation between treatments. Periodic maintenance sessions might also be recommended to help prolong the results.

  1. Does Thermage have any downtime? 

One of the significant advantages of Thermage is that it is a non-invasive treatment with little to no downtime. Patients can typically resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure.

After the treatment, you may experience some mild redness and swelling in the treated area, but these effects usually subside within a few hours to a couple of days. Some individuals may also experience mild tenderness or a sensation of warmth in the treated area, but this should also resolve quickly.

  1. Is Thermage suitable for all skin types and tones?

Thermage is generally considered safe and effective for a wide range of skin types and tones. Unlike some other cosmetic treatments, which may be more selective based on skin color, Thermage’s radiofrequency technology is designed to work on various skin types and tones.

  1. Who is an ideal candidate for Thermage treatment?

An ideal candidate for Thermage treatment is typically someone who is looking to address mild to moderate skin laxity and improve skin firmness and texture without undergoing surgery. 

  1. What areas of the body can be treated with Thermage?

The areas that can be treated with Thermage include:

  • Face and Neck: Thermage can be used to target sagging skin on the face and neck, including the jawline, jowls, and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
  • Abdomen: It can be employed to tighten loose skin and improve the appearance of the abdomen, particularly after weight loss or pregnancy.
  • Arms: Thermage is effective for addressing the appearance of sagging or crepey skin on the upper arms.
  • Thighs: It can help tighten skin on the inner and outer thighs, reducing the appearance of cellulite and improving overall skin texture.

These are some of the common areas where Thermage is applied, but the treatment may also be suitable for other regions of the body with mild to moderate skin laxity concerns.
