What is the thermage of the face, eyelids and abdomen?
Today there are so many methods of rejuvenation that it has become possible to look attractive at any age. One of these procedures is thermage. And how is it done? And what is its effect?
What is this procedure?
Thermage is a relatively new method of rejuvenation, which allows for a deep lifting of the skin and is an alternative to an operating facelift. The main reason for the decrease in skin tone with age is a decrease in the amount of collagen, which is responsible for the elasticity of the epidermis.
During the procedure, thermage is applied to the deep layers of the skin of low-frequency radio waves. They penetrate about 5-7 millimeters under the skin and create a uniform electric field.
The rapid movement of charged particles and the resistance of tissues provoke a rise in temperature in the deeper layers of the skin. As a result, the existing deformed and stretched collagen fibers return to normal, and new collagen begins to be produced more intensively.
Who will suit the thermal?
The procedure Thermage will be useful for the face and body.Here are the main indications for its implementation:
- omission of the eyelids;
- bags under the eyes;
- wrinkles around the eyes or mouth;
- deep nasolabial folds;
- double chin;
- flabbiness of the skin in any parts of the body (in the decollete area, on the abdomen);
- uneven oval face;
- stretch marks after childbirth or after weight loss.
As for age, it is better to make thermage for people aged 35 and above, since it is at this age that the collagen production decreases.
Is it possible for everyone to carry out the procedure?
Thermage has some contraindications:
- a period of exacerbation of serious chronic diseases;
- acute infectious diseases;
- connective tissue diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatism, scleroderma, etc.);
- diseases of an autoimmune nature, such as vasculitis;
- the presence of implantable devices that produce electrical or electromagnetic impulses (pacemakers, defibrillators, and others);
- severe diseases of the cardiovascular system;
- skin lesions in the area of impact;
- periods of lactation and pregnancy.
How is it done?
It is necessary to undergo the procedure with an experienced, professional and highly qualified cosmetologist and only in a proven clinic.An inexperienced cosmetologist can cause harm and injure the skin (severe burns can occur).
The main stages of thermal:
- First, the specialist will conduct an examination and examine your medical record in order, first, to identify possible contraindications and side effects, and second, to determine the degree of exposure. The device used to conduct the procedure has several levels of impact, depending on the frequency of the pulses and the depth of their penetration into the skin. In addition, a suitable nozzle will be selected.
- Then the area of exposure is degreased and disinfected with an antiseptic compound (for example, alcohol).
- Next, the beautician will mark up to provide a local effect on the problem areas and to achieve the maximum effect.
- To protect the eyes, special lens-screens are used to avoid corneal burns. In addition, drops with an anesthetic effect are usually used.
- Then the specialist will apply to the area of impact a special contact gel that increases the slip.
- Then the cosmetologist, using a special apparatus (today, almost all clinics use the “ThermaCool” apparatus), will process the treatment zone.
- When the treatment is completed, the beautician will remove the remaining gel and also apply a soothing mask that will soften the skin.
- At the end of the procedure, the patient can return to normal life and to familiar matters.
The duration of the procedure varies from 20 minutes to 2 hours and depends on the condition of the skin and the area of the affected area. During treatment, there may be unpleasant sensations, such as burning, tingling. Some people feel pain. The specialist may suggest the use of local anesthesia, so if you have a low pain threshold, you will agree and protect yourself from unpleasant sensations.
After the procedure, several days may experience discomfort and manifestations, such as tightness, swelling of the skin, redness, slight burning sensation. As a rule, they all pass within 2-4 days. If these symptoms persist, you should consult a doctor.
There are no special recommendations, but you should not expose your skin to heat in the first few days, that is, visit a solarium, bath or sauna, and also be in the open sun. It is also not recommended to undergo other procedures.The treatment is carried out in the usual manner with the use of conventional suitable means.
The effect is noticeable almost immediately after the session, but it is better to evaluate it after 1-2 months. Natural production of collagen is observed for a long time, so the effect is long and lasts an average of 3-5 years. After this time, the procedure can be repeated.
If you study the photos of patients before and after the procedure, you can understand that Thermage is really effective. The skin becomes toned, fresh and elastic. Reviews confirm that the effect lasts a long time and is very noticeable.
The cost of thermage (one procedure) varies from 50-70 to 180-200 thousand rubles, depending on the area of impact.
It remains only to wish everyone to be young and attractive!
