Thermage® Skin Tightening
Thermage is an FDA approved rejuvenating procedure that tightens the skin and restores youthful contouring without surgery or need for recovery time*. It is available in over 80 countries and over 4 million patients worldwide have reaped the benefits thus far. Thermage uses radio frequency waves to tighten and contour your skin and underlying tissue. Because it builds collagen, it gently lifts the skin to smooth out wrinkles and renew face and body contours.
Thermage improves: FACE, EYES, ARMS, THIGHS, STOMACH, KNEES & BUTTOCKS
You can expect a subtle change that will give you a refreshed look about yourself. Thermage remarkably only requires one treatment. Results occur with a tightening of the collagen structure and an additional tightening over time – usually within six months*. Most known for contouring the lower face as the “Non-Surgical Facelift”, Thermage not only tightens the skin but slows down the aging process by increasing collagen deep in the dermal layers and can last up to 5 years. Youthful Medical Spa has been performing Thermage for 13 years and is the largest provider in the southeast with over 5,000 treatment performed. Also, a well-touted training facility by Solta Medical, providing on-site training for over 5 years.
