Facelifts has always been a time tested solution to sagging skin based on my experience in my years of practice as a plastic surgeon in San Diego. For a long time, facelifts seem to be the only effective procedure in getting rid of excess skin that is a common effect of aging and of excessive weight loss. But many of my patients shy away from this procedure because it is considered a major surgery and there are some who refuse to have the procedure done because of the risks involved.
But thanks to developments in the technology for cosmetic procedures, we can now provide our patients the option to get suppler and younger looking skin through Thermage. Thermage literally turns back the clock and gives you younger looking skin without the need for surgery. This technology is the first non-invasive treatment that’s makes use of radio frequency technology and it still continues to revolutionize the way cosmetic surgeons treat sagging and droopy skin.
But how does this system work and what makes it different from the other non-invasive wrinkle treatments. Before going into that you have to understand what happens to the skin as we age. Over time, the collagen in our skin that is responsible for its elasticity is reduced which results to sagging and droopy skin. Thermage restores the skins elasticity by stimulating the body’s natural renewal process through the use of radiofrequency technology. The energy that is emitted from a Thermage wand makes the collagen fibers underneath the skin contract resulting to firmer and smoother skin, and all this is done without causing any damage to the surface of the skin.
I highly recommend Thermage as a treatment for reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles, pockets of loose skin, and sun damage in the eye area that creates the hooded effect and makes you look older than your age. Thermage is also a great treatment option in restoring the sleek contours of your jawline, your neck, as well as your lips. I also recommend this treatment to patients in San Diego who wants to reduce the appearance of laugh lines and brow furrows without the need for surgery. You can also consider Thermage sessions in removing sagging skin in parts of your body that may be a result of child birth or excessive weight loss without having a body lift done.
