Thermage is not a permanent skin tightening treatment but results can last anywhere from 12-24 months after the initial treatment (duration varies from patient to patient). Because results will continue to improve for up to six months, it is not recommended to proceed with any additional Thermage treatments any earlier than a six-month time frame.
I have been doing Thermage for over three years and I think it is a wonderful non- invasive, no down time procedure. I believe that Thermage works for everyone, but the extent of the result is different for every patient. Thermage is good for anyone who is looking to tighten, tone and improve the contour of their skin. Sometimes, patients are referred to our plastic surgeon as surgery might be a better option, but Thermage is a good alternative for the person who is not quite ready for surgery, looking for no downtime, and who wants to slow down the aging process.
