According to a recent study nearly 90% of women experience some degree of cellulite and demand for non-invasive cellulite treatments in the U.S. is expected to nearly double to over 750,000 procedures per year by 2011.
This treatment is ideal for patients who have tried diet and exercise or even other cellulite treatments without success. Now they can benefit from
- A single treatment with no surgery, injections or downtime
- Smoothing of dimples and improved skin texture
- Long lasting results
By using new procedure guidelines and the ThermaTip CL treatment tip, collagen connective tissues are restored and circulation is improved to help smooth skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
*Individual results may vary.
Results vary from subtle to dramatic. Generally improvements may be immediately visible and continue to improve for up to six months. Results are long lasting and depend on your skin condition and the aging process.
The Thermage Procedure
Thermage treatments are performed in the office of Radiance Medspa. Women 35-60 normally have the best and most predictable results. If your skin is too lax, the results will not be as dramatic.
Normally, the complete procedure can be performed in just one session lasting from 20 minutes to two hours, depending on the treatment area. General anesthesia is not required.
During the treatment, you’ll feel a brief, heat sensation each time Thermage delivers radiofrequency energy to the underlayer of your skin. This indicates that your collagen is being stimulated and tightened.
After treatment, your skin may be slightly red for a day or two. But most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment, with no downtime or special follow-up care.
Immediate Results: You should feel and see your skin being smoother, firmer, and tighter immediately after your Thermage treatment. You may also notice some contouring effects which will begin enhancing the shape of your face.
Continued improvement over time: After the procedure, you should continue to see improvements to your skin as a result of the production of new and increased collagen, as well as some additional contouring effects due to continued tightening over time. These effects will continue for up to six months. You should see lasting results.
