Thermage is a radiofrequency device, which is used to tighten and improve the appearance of the skin.  Other body treatments get rid of rid and remove inches from your waist, but do not focus on tightening lax skin.  Thermage is an excellent treatment, which is particularly useful for tightening and contouring lax skin on the abdomen, upper arms, and above the knees.  Many new moms consider Thermage a ‘must-have’ treatment to bring their abdomen back to pre-pregnancy tightness. Thermage works by sending a radiofrequency pulse into the skin, which stimulates the production of healthy collagen.  Healthy collagen in your skin leads to tighter and healthier skin, with an improved appearance.  The Body Treatment Center utilizes the newest Thermage CPT technology, in order to provide more comfortable and faster treatments, with the best possible result. Thermage treatment for the body is a non-invasive treatment.  It is mildly uncomfortable for some patients, but is rarely described as painful or more than a slight discomfort.  The in-office treatment takes approximately one hour to complete, during which you will be awake and able to converse with the practitioner.  The treatment is performed in a series of short pulses; the only sensation felt is that of each individual pulse.  After a pulse is completed, there is no residual heat or soreness felt.  There is no healing time necessary after Thermage treatment; patients can return to their regular activities following the visit. Most patients require only one Thermage treatment for each area treated.   Some immediate collagen remodeling may produce initial improvement, but long-lasting improvement will be visualized two to four months after the treatment.  One Thermage CPT body treatment produces improvement of skin tightening that lasts for years.
