There are many fantastic options to maintain skin firmness at home; often such remedies involve the topical application of medical grade skincare containing peptides and vitamin C, which are renowned for their collagen synthesizing benefits. While it is vital to integrate these treatments into your daily anti-aging routine to maintain firmness, there comes a point when such efforts require an additional boost with in-office methods in order to realize ideal results.
Enter Thermage®: a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that targets the signs of aging caused by collagen degradation such as fine lines, folds and lax skin. Thermage® tightens and contours by stimulating the natural renewal of the dermis layer of the skin. In just a single session (that doesn’t require anaesthetic or topical numbing creams), Thermage® delivers radiofrequency into the skin to heat up and remodel the existing collagen and elastin fibres that have become damaged by sun exposure and oxidative stress (i.e.: the aging process). In the process, collagen production is activated, and over a period of 6 months, your skin creates substantive amounts of new collagen, essentially turning back the clock on skin aging.
Thermage® can provide wonderful anti-aging results with little discomfort and no downtime. At the most, patients experience some swelling and redness post-treatment. The final results from a single session can last for years to come. Optional annual or bi-annual follow-up treatments do wonders to build upon the initial skin tightening results.
The ease with which a Thermage® treatment can be integrated into your lifestyle makes it an ideal way to boost skin firmness beyond the use of topical serums and creams. The first step in assessing your candidacy is to book in for a personal professional consultation with a qualified skin expert.
