As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down, resulting in wrinkles, crepiness, sagging and bulging skin. Thermage procedures help tighten and renew your skin's collagen through all three skin layers: the epidermis, dermis and deep subcutaneous (fat) layers.It is is a safe, non-invasive FDA approved procedure that's clinically proven to tighten and contour your skin. Its unique deep-heating technology stimulates and renews your own collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin and it can be used to treat a number of areas across the face and body.

Thermage is completely non-invasive so there is no surgery or injections and unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. Thermage procedures are typically performed in a single session. And there's no downtime - no bruising, swelling or sutures - so you can quickly resume your normal routine.

Thermage works by transmitting radio frequencies deep into the dermis, heating up the collagen network which results in the tightening of the skin. Over the following few months, this kick-starts the growth of new collagen resulting in a tighter, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

WHere can it be used?

On the face, Thermage can treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin (“turkey neck”), wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition in the lips. Around the eyes, Thermage can treat under eye bags, hooding, rough texture on the eyelids, wrinkles and fine lines, and other contributors to tired looking eyes. Elsewhere on the body, Thermage can treat wrinkled, crepey, sagging or bulging skin on the tummy, arms and legs, as well as the appearance of cellulite.


You'll see a small lift immediately after your Thermage treatment, but best results develop within around two to three months. At that time, if a patient wishes, the procedure can be repeated in order to gain additional improvement.

Because all individuals are different it is, however, not possible to completely predict who will benefit from treatment with the Thermage device. A small percentage of patients do not respond to the Thermage Treatment. Your practitioner will advise you if additional treatments or smaller touch-up procedures are required to achieve the desired end result.


Thermage is safer than invasive cosmetic procedures. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and colours. Best of all, you only need one treatment to obtain the full benefits. In addition, there is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your daily routine.

Thermage is the only treatment option that rejuvenates the collagen deep in your skin, with none of the negative aspects of other treatments. Unlike injections or fillers, Thermage works across your entire face, including forehead, eyes, nasolabial folds, jaw line, jowls and the area under your chin, as well as on the arms, tummy and thighs.
