Our body changes in many ways throughout our lives, and most of these changes are dependent on the kind of lifestyle we lead. Sudden weight gain or loss, hormonal changes, stress, and age can lead to loose and sagging skin. This can affect a person’s general appearance and confidence.
There are quite a few cosmetic treatments that can help tighten and tone loose and saggy skin. Some of these procedures are invasive and require a period of downtime to recover and heal. Others are non-invasive and are gentler on the body, making them more convenient.
One of the latest non-invasive procedures for tightening and toning your body is called Thermage Body.
What is Thermage Body Tightening?
The Thermage Body skin-tightening treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure in which loose and flabby skin is tightened with the help of radiofrequency energy. The treatment is quite safe and effective, and it can be completed in just a single session with long-lasting results.
How Is a Thermage Body Treatment Performed?
The treatment involves heating the collagen fibers in the skin and underlying tissues by delivering short pulses of radiofrequency energy to the targeted areas. The energy is delivered with the help of a probe that is attached to a device that can be handheld. The surface of the skin is kept cool with the help of a cooling spray.
The collagen, upon being stimulated, heats up and tightens. During the weeks after the treatment, the collagen continues to be renewed and remodeled, leading to further tightening and toning of the skin.
Is This Procedure Right for Me?
Any individual over the age of 18 and in relatively good health can undergo a Thermage Body treatment, provided that they are not overweight. Thermage cannot help with weight loss or body shaping; it can only tighten loose skin in people who are not heavily overweight.
Before Your Thermage Body Treatment
Since Thermage is a non-invasive procedure, there is not much required in the way of preparation or precautions. This being said, it is important to discuss your medical history with us during a consultation in order to rule out any complications. Make sure to mention any allergies or skin conditions.
It is also important to have realistic expectations and discuss your goals during this consultation. We can show you before-and-after photos to give you an idea of how your body would look once the procedure is done. This will help you make an informed decision in regard to the treatment.
After Your Treatment
Immediately after the Thermage Body procedure, you may notice some slight swelling and redness around the areas that have been treated. This is a temporary minor side effect and will subside gradually. Results are completely visible once the swelling has come down.
Since the procedure is non-invasive, there is minimal downtime and you can return to your daily routine within a day or so. A proper diet and exercise routine can help prolong the results of the Thermage Body treatment.
