Thermage Cellulite Treatment
Improve the Appearance of Cellulite on the Thigh and Buttocks Area
in a Single Treatment
BELLEVUE, Washington, March 1, 2008 – Thermage recently announced the introduction of a revolutionary Cellulite treatment at the American Academy of Dermatologys (AAD) annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas. The Cellulite treatment by Thermage uses the FDA cleared ThermaCool® system for the temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
According to a study published in 2007 by the Millennium Research Group, nearly 90 percent of women experience some degree of cellulite.
The Cellulite procedure by Thermage is the result of 21 months of clinical and technology development. The treatment rebuilds collagen and improves blood flow to the tissue helping to improve and smooth the appearance of the skins surface.
“Clinical evaluations have demonstrated that Thermage® technologynoticeably reduces the appearance of cellulite after just a single treatment,” said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer at Thermage.
“Many of my patients have long been frustrated by cellulite,” said Bellevue, WA. plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen B. Anderson, “but until now there has not been an accessible and effective treatment for cellulite.”
“I am excited to offer patients an effective cellulite procedure that takes just one treatment with no surgery, injections or downtime.”
All Thermage procedures use a unique radiofrequency technology for controlled heating of tissue that is backed by years of clinical research. The technology has been written about in over 45 peer-reviewed articles and safely used on over 450,000 patients worldwide to stimulate existing collagen and promote new collagen growth. Patients benefit from a single treatment and results can be subtle to dramatic depending on the individual patient.
Thermage treatments are unique non-invasive procedures designed to smooth, tighten and contour skin on the face, neck, hands and body.
Dr. Anderson was one of the first Seattle-area plastic surgeons to offer the Thermage procedure after it received its clearance from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in 2002. He has treated hundreds of patients with the Thermage procedure on many areas of the body including the face, jowls and neck, stomach, back, arms, legs and hands. According to Dr. Anderson, “Thermage is the ideal solution for patients seeking a refreshed and rejuvenated look to the skin on almost any part of the body without surgery, downtime or needles.”
