Thermage What to expect on the day of appointment
At Bare Body Laser, Thermage appointments are typically about 60 minutes long. During the appointment, the area to be treated will be cleansed and a cooling gel will be applied. The gel helps to protect the skin and increase the efficacy of the treatment. Next, the Thermage device will be passed over the skin, delivering radiofrequency waves deep into the tissue. The entire treatment usually takes about 30 minutes. Most patients report feeling a warm sensation during the treatment, but there is no pain or discomfort. After the treatment is complete, the cooling gel will be removed and you can return to your normal activities immediately. There is no downtime associated with Thermage; however, you may notice some redness or swelling in the treated area. This usually goes away within a few hours. Results from Thermage can take up to six months to appear; however, many patients notice an immediate improvement in their skin tone and texture. Thermage is safe for all skin types and can be used to treat a variety of concerns such as sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.
