Can someone please tell me something about thermage? what is it all about?

I live in NJ
Thermage is a one time non-invasive treatment for tightening and contouring the skin utilizing radio frequency waves with no downtime. It works by stimulating your body to create more collagen resulting in a thicker collagen layer which will result in smoother skin, improved texture and softened wrinkles. It can be used on the face eyelids, hands, chin, stomach, thighs, and buttocks. However given the manner in which it works you will see some results immediately as well as additional results 30 to 60 days later since it is stimulating your body to create more collagen which will give additional results due to a thicker collage layer especially for a facial treatment. The amount of results seen will vary depending on the individual, your age, the amount of collagen you currently have in your face at the time of treatment. Only your Doctor can tell you if you are a candidate for a Thermage treatment. As it relates to the body a good rule of thumb is that if you looking for reduction of 1 to 3 inches Thermage is probably a good choice. If you are looking for 5 inches or more you might want to consider liposuction as well, although on the TV show the Doctors they claimed to have measured a 5 inch reduction after a single treatment. With the latest vibrating tip for the face greater results are being seen immediately post treatment and with their new deep body tips good results are being seen there as well. Almost every patient who opts for a non-invasive treatment is happy with their results if they understand the limitations and nature of the treatment and they are in the hands of a skilled physician or technician who is using the appropriate amount of tips and pulses to achieve the desired results. As a patient you should know that each Doctor develops their own techniques after years of experience and each tip that is used for your treatment cost the doctor hundreds of dollars. So conversely it would be unreasonable to expect that a bargain treatment would get you the best results. That is probably why you see such a disparity on the blogs of peoples satisfaction with their results from Thermage. Approach it with the same amount of caution and research that you would if you were considering surgery. Do your homework, research it, get referrals from other patients that were satisfied and I am sure you will be one of the ones that are thrilled with your results
