It is a lot of fun to be in the sun. The sun feels warm, it feels invigorating and it just makes you feel good about life. Children especially love being outside in the sun. They can play and play all day long and really not care about the effects the sun is having on them. That same carefree mentality about spending time in the sun can affect teenagers and people in their early twenties.
However, once a person hits their thirties and forties, they start to become more aware of the effects that the sun is having on them. They start to notice how the sun is wrinkling their skin. The sun can cause their skin to become discolored and full of brown spots. Unfortunately, too many people wait too long before they take concrete steps to address sun damage. And by the time they start to protect themselves by wearing sunscreen or by wearing a hat when in the sun, it is too late.
Thermage® is a procedure that is designed to address some of the negative effects the sun can have on the skin. It is a non-invasive treatment that takes advantage of radiofrequency energy. It has been used by more than a million people around the world, so you can be sure that it is safe and effective.
People who have premature wrinkling because of the time they spent in the sun greatly benefit from the way the radiofrequency energy produced by Thermage® encourages collagen growth, thereby improving the look, feel and texture of the skin. Many patients see a complete turnaround of the appearance of their skin after just one treatment. They have very little to no downtime, and they are left with results that look natural.
Thermage® is designed to direct radiofrequency energy just below the skin’s surface. This heats up the dermis, which activates collagen production. This is an effective and flexible enough treatment that a wide range of adult patients can use it on their face, around their eyes or on most any other part of their body that has been negatively affected by the sun or the aging process.
While the designers of Thermage® were concerned with creating an effective product, they were also concerned with creating something that was going to be comfortable for their clients. For this reason, patients who have Thermage® performed do so in a comfortable environment and note that the procedure is virtually discomfort-free.
Thermage® has the power to revolutionize the way you look. One of the nice things about this procedure is that the results are so natural-looking. Your coworkers, your friends and other individuals around you will notice that something has changed, but they may think that you’ve lost weight, that you’ve changed your makeup routine or that you are getting more rest than you did before. It will not be obvious that you had a cosmetic procedure done.
