Thermage®: Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
With skin tightening, Calgary women, and men, can regain a more youthful appearance without injections or surgery.
The reason it works is that sagging skin and wrinkles are caused by the breakdown of collagen. Skin tightening treatments stimulate the growth of collagen.
The results are reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, redefined contours, and smoother, tighter skin.
Skin tightening can be used on the arms, neck, face, belly and other areas. It can be effective after pregnancy and weight loss, helping reduce sagging and bulging, and creating a more contoured shape.
Today, even men care about their appearance and want to look as young and healthy as they feel. Skin tightening can redefine the jaw line and eliminate bulging under the chin. It’s also a safe, non-surgical way to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and to tighten and firm the skin.
Our medical staff is highly trained in delivering skin tightening treatments and have helped many people achieve a more youthful appearance. We currently use Thermage® and Fraxel® skin tightening treatments and our knowledgeable team will advise as to which skin tightening treatment would be best for you. Working closely with you, we customize a treatment plan that addresses your concerns, including arm skin tightening if desired. During our consultation about skin tightening, cost will also be discussed and your treatment plan can be tailored to fit your budget.
How Thermage® Works
Thermage® procedures use patented radio frequency technology to heat the deeper layers of skin. This tightens existing collagen and stimulates the growth of new collagen—the stuff you need for young, tight, firm, glowing skin. A Thermage® face lift is, of course, a non-surgical procedure, but Thermage® does make a difference in your appearance without telling the world you’ve had “work” done. Thermage® can also be used on other parts of the body, such as the tummy, arms, knees, and thighs, to reduce wrinkles, firm up saggy skin, contour the area, and get rid of unsightly bulges.
In busy Calgary, Thermage® is a good choice because there is little to no downtime after the treatment.
What to Expect
The Thermage® skin tightening treatment experience is calm and comfortable; patients can look as good as they feel without surgery or injections. After just one treatment, you’ll see smoother, tighter, more contoured skin as well as younger-looking skin. Most people only need one treatment and see improvement continuing for months.
Thermage® side effects are non-existent. There are no traceable marks of treatment and you don’t need to treat your skin any special way afterwards. Patients go right back to their regular activities. Thermage® skin tightening treatments are also safe off the face, such as on the abdomen, buttocks, thighs or arms.
