Prive Clinic Doctors Reveal All About Thermage Treatments
When we are overweight, there is exercise or lypo, but once we start to age and fine lines, sagging and eventually wrinkles starts to appear, then we need an all natural miracle too, and now we have that in the form of thermage. Doctors from Prive Clinic in Singapore reveals all you need to know about thermage:
What Is Thermage
Thermage in Singapore uses radiofrequency pulses that go beneath the primary layers of the skin to really get the blood flowing and rejuvenate. What all this does is get your body to start producing high levels of collagen again. Collagen production in the body usually starts to decrease at about 25 years of age. What optimal levels of collagen will do is get rid of sagging skin, lines, wrinkles and other skin imperfections due to age, health problems, the environment and bad diet.
How Thermage Feels
You can feel the thermage treatment working. There is no pain killers or anaesthesia available during the procedure, and really there is no major pain, but patients have complained of the area being treated feeling like it was on fire. Now, thanks to technological developments, it is a much more comfortable and actually a rather enjoyable procedure. The CPT technology now available in thermage treatments creates a vibrating sensation throughout the procedure along with alternate sensations of cooling and heating. Ask at the clinic where you are getting your treatment whether the latest CPT technology will be included.
Areas That Can Be Treated
Thermage can be used all over the body. It is designed to target problem areas, and the results are incredible. Even specific areas of the face can be treated such as the eyes. The neck can also be treated to get rid of deep rings and folds. The stomachs of women who have had excessive stretching due to pregnancy or weight can also be treated. It can be used around the knees where the skin may have started to develop folds, sagging or deep lines.
Thermage for Cellulite
Thermage has never really been proven effective for cellulite, so consider targeting other problem areas that thermage has been proven to treat.
It can cost from $2,000 to 3,000 for a thermage facial treatment, and with other areas, it depends on how much of the body will be treated.
A gel is applied to the area of treatment and then the thermage wand is applied to the skin by the physician to deliver the radiofrequency waves that get the body to produce collagen. Only one treatment is needed for each area of the body. for the face, it will take about 45 minutes to complete the process. For larger areas of the body such as the arms or stomach, it could take up to 90 minutes for a treatment. Immediately after the procedure, the skin will be red, but this will only cause slight disturbance for a few hours, and then everything will go back to normal. You will begin to see results shortly after the procedure, but the results are gradual, so it could take up to six months to see full results. The good news is, the results are said to be permanent.
