When I discussed skin tightening, Dr. Jubin suggested that we do a full face Thermage treatment. This is a radio frequency machine that heats the skin and makes it tighter.
When doing this procedure it was recommended to take the comfort medication that Dr. Jubin prescribed. I did find Thermage to be one of the more uncomfortable treatments. I didn't take the comfort medication and was able to tolerate this but would have been so much more comfortable had I chosen to medicate.
I didn't see results from this treatment right away but should see them over the next 6 months.
Bella Sante Description:
Thermage® treatments are based on unipolar Radio Frequency (RF) which causes the contraction and stimulation of the collagen, resulting in a tighter, smoother appearance of the skin. The most common areas to be treated are the face, eyes and neck, but Thermage is also a popular treatment used to tighten and tone the skin on the abdomen that may have become loose after weight loss or pregnancy.
Immediate results are usually visible and the collagen continues to improve and tighten over the following 6-12 months. Results can last years and we recommend that to remain looking youthful the procedure be repeated every few years to continue stimulating the collagen.
Most patients return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment. Our preference is to provide our patients with a mild sedative 30-60 minutes prior to the procedure to ensure your comfort throughout the treatment. It is therefore necessary to arrange transportation home after the treatment.
