As the skin gets older, it loses collagen and elastin and therefore can’t retract and reshape itself as easily. These compounds help keep the skin hydrate and stretch, so without them wrinkles and fine lines form more easily. It’s just how it is—wrinkles are a sign of old age and the slow deterioration of your skin. Without elastin and collagen, it’s hard to keep your skin looking young.

Just a couple of decades ago, there were no means for effectively treating this issue. Granted, it is simply cosmetic and therefore not as importantthermage as some medical issues, but who doesn’t like to look young and attractive? Now we can get away from unreliable or short-term homemade treatments. There are so many options to help keep your skin in good shape, from Botox to various surgeries. Thermage is among the non-invasive procedures used for treating the signs of aging, and it has so far produced excellent results.

Thermage involves the use of a handheld device that emits radiofrequency waves. These waves penetrate into the skin and stimulate the production of collagen in the body, which in turn enhances the smoothness of the skin and removes the wrinkles and lines that have developed. You will start to feel the results immediately and visibly see them shortly after that.

One of the benefits of Thermage treatment is that it has no down time. You are in and out of the clinic in no time at all and can resume your daily activities immediately after the procedure. You may experience some pain, but generally you should remain on your feet!

Perhaps the only downside to Thermage is it’s price. Costing around $2500 at most clinics, it is up there with most other cosmetic treatments. Start saving now!

Wrinkles and fine lines can reveal your age—or hide it, if you look older than you really are. If you want to keep your age a secret by turning back the hands of your biological clock, look into Thermage treatment at your local medical spa or clinic!
