New York City Doctor List

If signs of aging are beginning to appear and you would like to regain a more youthful look without surgery, a Long Island doctor can perform Thermage, an innovative procedure. Some people refer to Thermage as the one-hour facelift. If you have extremely loose skin, a facelift may give you better results. Ideal candidates for Thermage are in the age-range of 40-60.

What is Thermage?

Thermage is one of the few products that can target hard to treat areas like the nasolabial folds that run from nose to mouth, and sagging skin along the jaw line. It is also used around the eyes to combat wrinkling and an overall tired look. Some doctors consider Thermage to be a mini-facelift. It tightens the underlying structure of the skin, and it is the only product on the market that reaches all three layers of skin.

Thermage is unique because it affects all three layers of the skin. It is the only product that does that. It uses radiofrequency waves to heat the underlying structure of the skin. At the same time, the device cools the top layer of skin to reduce irritation. Heating the dermis and other layers tightens the collagen fibers into a more compact structure while boosting your skin's own collagen production. The effects of Thermage are more evident as time passes and your skin becomes tighter, thicker and more contoured. Unlike some cosmetic procedures, Thermage is safe to use on all skin types including dark skin. Thermage can also be used on other parts of the body such as the belly, the flabby back of the arm and other places.

Be sure to view before and after Thermage photos to see examples of patient results.

Cost of Thermage

The average cost of Thermage in Long Island is $3,288. However, this does not include any anesthesia or surgery center fees. You may learn of a more accurate estimate of your final cost when visiting a cosmetic plastic surgeon.
