If you are interested in achieving a more youthful appearance, there are some Long Island doctors available who offer Thermage, an innovative procedure. Patients looking for a non-surgical skin tightening procedure may find this treatment to can meet their needs.

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 works by using radiofrequency waves to heat the layers of skin underneath to tighten collagen fibers, while simultaneously cooling the outer layer of skin to minimize irritation. While tightening existing collagen it increases your own collagen production. Because of this, its effects become more evident with time. Patients notice increased tightening and thicker skin months after they receive treatment. Thermage is a very safe procedure with no downtime and minimal redness afterwards. You can apply makeup as soon as the procedure is over. There is no pain but you will feel a tingly sensation as the doctor moves the wand over the areas being treated. It is also being used on other parts of the body such as the back of the arms and the abdomen. Research is being conducted to see if Thermage can benefit the breasts, stretch marks and more.

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