Thermage: Younger-Looking Skin Without the Down Time
As we age, gravity and the effects of environmental factors take their toll on our skin. Even if we take perfect care of our skin, there still comes a time in our life when we wish it looked as young as it once did. Invasive procedures like face-lifts and injections aren't for everyone. But thanks to advances in modern medicine, non-invasive therapies such as Thermage make it possible to reverse the signs of aging and reveal younger, healthier skin without going under the knife or needle.
Thermage uses heat via radiofrequency that is delivered to the collagen level of the skin, which is deeper than what lasers target. It has a cooling and heating component in order to reach these deeper layers of skin without damaging the surface. The cooling element cools the surface of the skin and the heat is sent down deeper. The heat shrinks the collagen in the deeper levels of the skin, which in turn gives your skin a lift with no visible marks on the surface. The heat also minimally damages the collagen in order to stimulate new collagen production to rejuvenate the skin.
Thermage is not a substitute for a face-lift, but it's a great alternative for a subtler improvement. The incredibly quick recovery time means you are back to normal that same night after the procedure. More than 1 million treatments have been performed on men and women all over the nation who want to look younger and improve the appearance of their skin.
The procedure is perfect for hooded eyes, brow lines, fine lines around the eyes, sagging skin, and the skin on the neck and face. To find out more or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Davis, call our office today at 817-778-4444. You can also learn more on our page about Thermage.
