How Does Thermage® Work?
When considering skin anatomy, keep in mind that the thickness of the dermis and epidermis is approximately the same as a paperclip. Thermage® precisely targets the layers of the dermis where fibroblasts live. It energizes these collagen-producing cells, leading to a rejuvenating spike in neo-collagen. Since it bypasses the outer layers of skin, Thermage® causes no burning, no wounds, and no surface damage.
What Results Will I See With Thermage®?
At ZENA Medical, we love Thermage® for its skin-tightening abilities. However, it is also popular for its anti-aging benefits. For people with firm, youthful skin, Thermage® can keep the dermis thick and healthy. This preventative treatment works better than any cream to hold off signs of aging.
Most people only need one Thermage® treatment to achieve results. You will see your full results in about four to six months. At ZENA Medical, we recommend maintenance treatments every one to two years, depending on your individual response.
Thermage® and Sculptra®
As another benefit of this versatile treatment, Thermage® can couple with Sculptra®, a collagen-stimulating dermal filler. When using these treatments together, your ZENA Medical provider injects Sculptra® into the deeper spaces in the tissue. One to two weeks later, you will have Thermage® treatment to jump-start your Sculptra® results. This is like a liquid facelift.
