Thermage®

Thermage is an innovative way to treat lax skin that's lost its resilience as the result of aging and sun damage. Using the power of radiofrequency energy, Thermage encourages the healthy growth of new collagen for skin that's noticeably firmer and tighter. Dr. Vince Bertucci blends his technical knowledge with his natural artistry to create the best possible results for his Thermage patients in and around Toronto.

What Is Thermage?

Thermage is a completely non-invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, improving your skin's overall tone and texture. At our Toronto-area practice, Thermage is primarily used on regions of the face that are prone to early aging, such as the jawline and eyelid area. But it can also be used to improve the look of other parts of the body, including:

  • Hands
  • Neck
  • Forehead
  • Abdomen

How Does It Work?

Collagen is a protein that's found naturally within our bodies, and it's vital to keeping skin soft and resilient. But as we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen, and the collagen that we have degrades, leading to the development of wrinkles and sagging. Thermage delivers radiofrequency energy to the deep dermis without any damage to the surface. The heat energy tightens existing collagen and promotes new collagen growth for results that can develop for up to 6 months. Thermage is a safe, effective way to enhance skin at the deeper levels where topical products can't penetrate.

Is Thermage Right for Me?

Thermage doesn't use a laser, so it's a safe option for patients with a variety of skin tones and types. Although Thermage can't generate results that are equal to a surgical facelift, it can create a significant improvement for men and women who are bothered by signs of aging and laxity.

During your consultation, Dr. Bertucci closely examines you to determine if Thermage is the right option for your skin concerns. In some cases, the results of Thermage can be enhanced with a wrinkle-smoothing injectable, injectable fillers or certain laser or light procedures.

What Can I Expect?

Thermage is non-invasive, which means it doesn't require needles or surgery. Most patients find that the treatment isn't painful, but some report discomfort or a strong sensation of warmth. At Bertucci MedSpa, we offer several options to enhance your comfort during your treatment with Thermage.

To perform Thermage, a qualified member of our medical team first cleanses the treatment area and applies a cooling gel to your skin. She then uses the Thermage handpiece to deliver short pulses of targeted radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of your skin. Most appointments last about 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas to be treated.

Following a treatment with Thermage, you won't require time to rest or recuperate. Instead, you can get right back to your regular activities while your skin goes to work repairing itself. Some patients report mild side effects including redness and swelling, but these typically go away within a day. Although some noticeable improvement is immediately visible, the results of Thermage gradually develop over the course of 4 to 6 months. Some patients return for follow-up visits for enhanced results. By practicing good skincare habits and using effective products, you can enjoy your ultimate results for years.
