For the first time, women and men seeking a more youthful appearance have the option of an aesthetic procedure that does not require invasive surgery, chemicals, needles or lasers.
Harley Street Injectables in Mayfair is one of few clinics in the UK to offer the revolutionary non-surgical Thermage CPT skin tightening treatment.
Thermage has been described as a Non-Surgical Facelift and is recognised for its body skin tightening results.
The prospect of treating sagging skin and wrinkles without incisions or downtime (Recovery time) has great appeal to the majority of patients who are looking for subtle improvements or are not ready for a traditional facelift.
Skin is made up of two layers, the visible outer layer called the epidermis, and the deeper layer called the dermis. The main structural component of the dermis is a protein called collagen, which provides the skin its strength. As we age, the body produces less collagen resulting in wrinkles and laxity.
The Thermage procedure causes the collagen in the dermal layers of the skin and its underlying tissue to tighten, thereby reducing skin laxity and wrinkles and renewing facial contours.
The Thermage procedure for ‘Skin Tightening’ uses the latest radiofrequency technology to create a precisely controlled zone of heating in the dermis and the underlying tissue. At the same time the epidermis is protected with continual cooling. The heating of the collagen initiates a natural biological reaction that causes the collagen to contract and thicken. This process, called denaturation, provides the initial results of tighter, smoother looking skin. This response is part of the body’s natural wound-healing response and initiates new collagen creation providing long-term tightening of the skin. The combination of these two processes, provide immediate skin tightening and long-term tightening effects.
Thermage is an effective treatment for skin tightening on the face, neck and decoltage, as well as the the body. The treatment is an effective solution for sagging skin, loose jowls or lack of definition in the jawline, sagging skin under the chin and wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and forehead.
In addition, the body also initiates a second response called neo-collagenation, due to the heating of the dermis and underlying tissue.
The Thermage process can be likened to that of pulling on a rope at one end to gradually remove the slack. The procedure typically takes around an hour or less, and patients can return to their regular activities immediately after.
During a typical session, clients experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the energy is delivered to the skin and underlying tissue. The heating sensation is the patient’s indication that the collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening.
The nurse or doctor precisely controls the amount of energy delivered to produce optimum results. The head of the device is cooled before, during, and after the energy is released, in order to protect the skin and make the experience more comfortable.
The duration of a typical Thermage procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size and location of the area being treated.
Following a Thermage procedure, your skin should feel tighter, smoother and more youthful. Over time, you will notice additional tightening.
Unlike many available cosmetic procedures requiring a series of sessions, a single Thermage treatment can produce the desired results in the majority of patients.
Published medical studies conducted by Thermage show that measurable tightening improvements appear gradually over 2 to 6 months following a single treatment session. However, many patients have reported seeing an earlier response.
The Thermage procedure causes immediate tightening of the collagen structure, with additional tightening over time. Results can last 24 – 36 months or longer based on the individual patient’s natural aging process.
Qualified doctors/nurses will discuss the procedure before any treatment, explaining any possible side effects.
