As we age, our sphere of experience and wisdom grows with us. Unfortunately, in a way, so does our skin.
Yes, as we age our skin loses much of its elasticity and it seems in a way bigger on our bodies. Why? Production of the skin’s support structures, elastin and collage, declines precipitously. Plus, we parade around out in the sun unprotected against its skin damaging UV rays. We smoke and allow other environmental factors to damage our skin.
Before we know it, our skin is loose where it once was firm. And now it has wrinkles where once there were none.
So, we’re constantly in search of ways to re-tighten that skin, to regain a more youthful appearance. Facelifts and brow lifts do the trick surgically. Injectable fillers do the job non-surgically.
So does Thermage.
Thermage is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency waves to heat the underlying collagen in the dermis layer of the skin. The RF waves don’t injure the surface layer (the tip of the Thermage machine actually stays very cool), but heat the collagen, causing it to shrink. This tightens the skin above, and it encourages the body to create new collagen over the next six months. The result? Noticeably younger-looking skin, especially in the areas around the eyes and the mouth.
So, if you’re looking for ways to lessen those wrinkles that are starting to form at the corners of your mouth, but you don’t want surgery and you don’t want injections every six months, consider Thermage.
