Smooth skin thanks to Thermage
The desire for eternal youth
Many people want wrinkle-free, smooth and firm skin from head to toe. But with age the skin loses its elasticity and elasticity. Wrinkles form, the skin around the eyes, on the cheeks and neck sags due to the natural aging processes. Thermage - skin lifting without surgery and a scalpel - enables younger-looking, beautiful skin in a short time.
What are the goals of a treatment with Thermage?
Healthy and firm skin without surgery and without a regeneration phase is possible with the Thermage process. A body, face or eye lift with Thermage tightens the corresponding region and, thanks to the unique radio frequency technology, stimulates the formation of new collagen at the same time. A fresher look is achieved in a natural way. The skin is firmer and feels softer. The smoothing effect of the skin is clearly noticeable within two to six months. In some cases, the first treatment successes were already noticed after a month.
What happens during treatment with Thermage?
A ThermaCool system is used in the Thermage process. This has the so-called ThermaTip, a high-tech treatment unit that emits a controlled amount of radio frequency energy when it comes into contact with the skin. The heat impulses of this new lifting method penetrate into the depths of the skin never reached before. While the different skin tissue layers are heated evenly, constant cooling protects the skin surface at the same time. The uniform heating causes an immediate tightening of the skin structure.
Thermage tightens the skin non-invasively without cuts or wounds. As soon as the Thermage system comes into contact with the skin, an energy pulse is emitted which the patient perceives as a brief, deep warming. The deep heat signals that the right temperature has been reached to tighten the existing collagen and to stimulate the formation of new collagen. The amount of energy supplied can be controlled and regulated by the esthetician. In this way, optimal aesthetic treatment results can be achieved for the individual.
A Thermage application can last between 20 and 120 minutes, depending on the scope of the treatment.
What methods of Thermage treatment are there?
A patented, monopolar radio frequency technology is used for treatment with Thermage. This enables volumetric heating of the skin down to the deep tissue layers, which can significantly tighten the skin, smooth out wrinkles and improve the facial contours. The application is quick and uncomplicated and does not require an inpatient stay.
Thermage is versatile. Wrinkles can be reduced and the body contour can be holistically tightened. The following Thermage methods are offered:

Face by Thermage
The non-invasive procedure is used to contour the face, for example to tighten the cheeks or the chin area. The stimulation of the collagen in the deep tissue layers improves the texture of the skin and thus also the complexion. Overall, the face looks more youthful and fresher.
Eyes by Thermage
With Eyes by Thermage, the skin in the eye region is smoothed and firmed without surgery or an injection - making the eyes look significantly more radiant. The safe and effective Eyes by Thermage process softens eye wrinkles, soothes crow's feet and reduces bags under the eyes. Using the eye lifting method tightens the skin of the eyelids and the entire eye region. Body by Thermage younger looking, smoother, firmer skin - that is the treatment goal of
Body by Thermage
Loose and sagging skin on the arms and legs can be tightened, wrinkles reduced and the texture of the skin and its structure optimized. In the abdominal area, Thermage is particularly suitable for those with mild to moderate slackness of the skin, e.g. after pregnancy or weight loss. A tummy tuck with the help of the Thermalift therapy is recommended for patients between 35 and 60 years of age who want a firm stomach but do not want to undergo surgical skin tightening. Regardless of the body region in which Thermage is used, a significant improvement is noticeable and visible even after a single treatment - without surgery, injections or downtime. In the knee area, Body by Thermage can be used just as effectively to smooth the skin.
Cellulite by Thermage
A skin treatment with Thermage not only has a smoothing effect, but also effectively combats cellulite. The heat energy, which activates collagen and the underlying layers, tightens and firms the skin. Unsightly waves and dents are thus eliminated.
Hands by Thermage
Radiant looking hands, smoother skin tissue and thicker and more elastic skin can be achieved with the Hands by Thermage method. The best treatment results are achieved in patients aged 35 to 60 without excessive skin damage from exposure to the sun. Deeply sunken skin areas and discoloration of the skin cannot be treated with Thermage.
What complications are possible with a Thermage treatment?
One application with Thermage is usually enough to keep the skin looking younger, smoother and softer in the long term. More than 600,000 patients worldwide have had the non-invasive skin lift performed successfully. Less than 0.2 percent had minor side effects. This makes Thermage one of the safest methods for tightening skin and tissue.
Very sensitive skin may react to the treatment with slight redness, swelling, dents or blisters. These resolve by themselves after a few days. Only isolated reports of irregularities on the skin surface were made.
The special thing about Thermage is that it can be used on all skin types and thus healthier collagen can be formed for everyone. Depending on the condition of the skin and the lifestyle of the patient, a slight to very noticeable tightening can be achieved. In any case, an improvement in the tissue structure is achieved.
What does a treatment with Thermage cost?
The Thermage costs essentially depend on two factors: the area of the body to be treated and the extent of treatment. As with any other aesthetic procedure, the attending physician can only state the exact costs for the Thermage application in the individual case after the consultation with a preliminary examination.
Ultherapy and Thermage: What are the Differences?
We get asked “Ultherapy or Thermage” so often, and we hope that this article covers some questions you may have and can help you decide better.
The reason why these two devices are always compared is that they are both US FDA approved devices with more than ten years of history and 1 million treatments performed worldwide. The debate has been on-going since.
Until Jan 2019, a randomised controlled trial, split-face study published by The Dermatology Surgery Journal, one of the most trusted peer-review journal in Dermatology and Aesthetics, showed that both Thermage and Ultherapy are effective in skin tightening and face and neck lifting with visible results from 1 month and up to 6 months after 1 treatment.
Interestingly, there is NO significant difference between Thermage and Ultherapy in terms of visible results, patient satisfaction and side-effects.
Can you do both Thermage and Ultherapy?
Yes. Both Thermage and Ultherapy treatments target various aspects of skin aging. Ultherapy up to 4.5mm whereas Thermage up to 3.0mm. Both non-surgical skin tightening treatments can be spaced 6 months apart.
We suggest going to a clinic that has multiple types of skin tightening devices and anti-aging lasers
so that you have more options. Often times, you might need more than 1 type of treatment or laser to get optimal results. Unsure which is the most suitable treatment for you? A face-to-face consult will help.
