Thermage is a non-surgical procedure that offers a way to rejuvenate a person’s face without invasive surgery. It involves the application of radio frequency energy to the area being treated. This energy heats the collagen, which is what composes our skin. In response to the heat, the loose weakened disorganized collagen will strengthen, tighten and become organized. This then translates to tighter, younger appearing skin.

While Thermage does not involve any surgery, you will most likely require some time to heal from the procedure. Redness may last from 1-2 hours and occasionally lasts for a few days. Swelling is usually mild-moderate and lasts about 3-7 days.


This is a non-surgical facelift procedure that utilizes an infrared optical light source to tighten and reverse the signs of aging. The optical light heats up the dermis of the skin causing collagen contraction – similar to the process of a Thermal facelift. The thermal effect causes tissue tightening by the organization of collagen and elastin in the dermis resulting in a significant lift effect.

Treatment lengths vary from serval minutes to an hour and normal activities can resume immediately. Some people may see results right away. For most though the results are gradual over a 2-6 month period as new collagen forms and the skin tightens.
