Thermage

Thermage is a world-renowned technology first in It’s class for skin tightening and collagen induction. Thermage quickly works to deliver pulses of energy and light to the skin, reaching deeper layers of tissue resulting in a bouncier, tighter skin texture in just 3 – 6 months. A conductive ‘coupling fluid’ is applied to the treated area, and reapplied as needed to help the machine glide over the skin.  Collagen gives the skin elasticity and suppleness, and is something our body starts to produce less of as time goes on. Thermage is a no-downtime treatment to help kickstart your skin back into first gear, while providing skin firming that lasts for 12+ months with just one treatment.
