Thermage For Tighter Skin
The Latest Trend in Cosmetic Surgery: An Affordable, Non-Invasive, “Lunchtime” Procedure for Tighter Skin
BELLEVUE, Wash. (Aug. 8, 2005) – A revolutionary new cosmetic procedure that tightens skin without the use of chemicals, needles or incisions now allows busy men and women to look their absolute best without disrupting their daily schedules. The procedure, called Thermage, is a non-invasive, FDA-approved method that uses painless radio waves to smooth wrinkles and restore a youthful physical appearance after a single outpatient treatment.
“Currently as a society, we place tremendous value on appearances and good-looks,” said Dr. Stephen B. Anderson, one of the Northwest’s most experienced cosmetic surgeons addressing the aging face, and a renowned specialist in facial and body Thermage. “The Thermage procedure is an excellent alternative for those who want noticeable results but aren’t interested in surgical cosmetic procedures such as a facelift or liposculpture.”
Thermage works by delivering radiofrequency waves of heat that contour and tighten skin tissue and pull out wrinkles. A hand-held device emits the waves to stimulate the production of collagen, an underlying contributor to the skin’s elasticity and youthful appearance. The results have been so successful that Thermage has quickly become the most popular alternative to invasive surgical procedures, attracting a wide range of patients.
Dr. Anderson, who owns a practice in downtown Bellevue, estimates that Thermage currently accounts for more than 25 percent of his business, with an increasing number of men interested in the procedure.
“We’re seeing a lot more men gravitate towards Thermage because of its convenience and non-invasive nature. Being ble to go straight back to work adds to the appeal.”
Patients are attracted to Thermage because it requires no recovery time — most can return to work immediately after a lunchtime treatment. Results from Thermage are evident almost immediately, and the skin will continue to tighten for up to six months after the procedure, with the overall effects lasting approximately three years.
