Radio-Frequency Rejuvenation Therapy for Fine Facial Lines and Wrinkles, Deep Facial Lines and Contour Improvement, Skin Tightening, Acne Scars

Downtime Minimal

The Thermage Therma-Cool procedure is a patented radio-frequency (RF) based device. A non-ablative treatment, which means it acts on the middle and lower layers of the skin while leaving the skins surface intact, it is used to rejuvenate the face by tightening the skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It also has benefits for post-acne scarring and tightening of abdominal and underarm skin.

This is an FDA approved non-invasive method of heating the collagen in the skin. This heating process tightens the collagen molecule and stimulates the production of new collagen. The result is a tightening and contouring of the skin of the treated area which typically occurs over 4 – 6 months.

At present, we are using a Thermage II B upgrade with 3 square cm tips. This gives better and more uniform tissue heating and collagen stimulation. The new Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) handpiece has a vibrating function with, using the principle of gating, allows greater patient comfort.

The procedure has minimal downtime and is suitable for many skin types. This can be done under topical and local anesthesia or intravenous sedation at the laser centre.
