If one is looking to reverse the signs of ageing, a thermage treatment might one to look into as it is a procedure that is FDA approved, as well as TGA approved. This non-surgical skin treatment is used quite often in Sydney. Effective places on the body for thermage treatment include the neck, the back of the hands, eyelids, the face and the body.
How Does Thermage Treatment Work?
As the skin ages, the natural collagen fibre wears out. Skin then begins to sag. Using Thermage Treatments, radio frequencies are penetrated deep into the skin, which are converted into heat energy. This heat energy will stimulate collagen and signals the skin to create more collagen. Almost immediately, the skin will show the results, as there is an increase in blood flow. This will results in younger looking skin, skin that is tighter and does not sag as much, and fewer wrinkles and lines.
Who Should Use Thermage Treatments?
Thermage treatments are perfect for those that want to make the skin tighter, as well as look younger. Many will use it when sagging skin appears, or when deep lines and wrinkles set in. Others use the treatment after they have lost a lot of weight to tone and tighten the skin. This treatment works wonders on tightening the skin around the abdominal muscles, and many have used it around they eyes and on the buttocks and thighs.
Why Choose Thermage Treatments?
