Thermage Best Way to Tighten Sagging Facial Skin nyc new york ny

By far, the best way to tighten sagging facial skin without surgery or downtime is Thermage. Thermage uses radiowaves to tighten the collagen in the deep layers of the skin, and is very useful to clean up jowls and a loose jaw line.
Thermage has been getting mixed reviews, and in fact on the REALSELF.COM website, only 35% of patients felt that Thermage was "worth it". However, do not let this discourage you from exploring this very useful technique.
Dissatisfied Thermage patients are not the result of the technique itself but, of improper applications as follows:
A). Patient selection is critical. If Thermage is tried on a patient who has a great deal of jowling and skin laxity in the neck, it is quite predictable that the improvement is going to be insufficient, and that a patient like this will really only be helped by surgery. There is no age cut off, but younger patients do better with Thermage.
B). Thermage has to be done just right. It requires a great deal of experience and a good eye. As with anything else in Cosmetic Medicine, the machine is only as good as the person using it. If you are going to have Thermage, make sure that you go to an office where they do a lot of it, and ask to speak to a patient who has had it.
C). Very often, not enough energy is used in Thermage to save money. An individual head has to be bought for each patient, and heads come in different sizes, ranging from 200 pulses to 900 pulses. The greater the number of pulses, the more the energy delivered to your skin, and in general the better the result you will get. The problem is that the larger heads with more pulses cost more money, and there are practices that cut corners and use small heads which provide inadequate energy. Predictably in this situation, the result will be disappointing.
We only use 750 pulse and 900 pulse heads, depending on the individual patient and the individual area.
D). The final point to make about Thermage is that patient education is important, and you have to have realistic expectations. You can expect very significant improvement but, the results will not be as dramatic as with a well performed scarless mid-facelift or with a short scar facelift.
