Thermage is a monopolar radiofrequency treatment for skin tightening. The radio waves heat the skin down to the lower layers and remodel, stimulate and rejuvenate the collagen.

The area of treatment is first washed, after which a skin numbing is applied. Then a number of monopolar radio waves are shot deep within the skin. The procedure lasts for about an hour. The tip of the instrument from where the radio waves are shot is very important; at SK TruDerma, our skin specialists use only the most advanced total tip.

  • Tighter skin
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Glowing skin with a look that is more tightly wrapped
  • Tighter skin under the neck
  • Skin on the lower tummy, above the knees and inner thighs can also be tightened.

As with ultherapy, results can be seen soon after the procedure and keeps improving for up to three months. And, as has been mentioned above, any anti-aging treatment is meant to make the skin younger, healthier and glowing. The normal aging process starts soon after the treatment and the duration of the results vary from person to person.

The procedure is generally repeated once in six months or a year.

Knowing precisely which areas to subject to the radiofrequency is key to conducting the procedure. If the radio waves are not distributed evenly, there can be some needless fat loss from the skin. 

After the treatment, the skin subjected to thermage may appear mildly red with some feeling of heat. However, these are temporary effects and disappear in a day or two.

The skin, which has just undergone a radiofrequency procedure can be a bit irritated, red and hot for the first four hours. The warmth is actually helpful and you need to avoid washing your face with cold water and sit in a chilly environment. However, you can resume normal activities from the following day.

Thermage may not be recommended for people who are using any of the following:

  • Pacemaker
  • Defibrillator
  • Implanted Electronic Device
  • ICD
