Additional Information

What are the benefits of THERMAGE®?
  • No surgery, no injections leaving you with subtle, natural results
  • Suitable for all skin types 
  • Little to no downtime
  • One single treatment 
  • Effective in targeting loss of elasticity and softening rough, uneven skin texture 
  • Results improve gradually with full effects developing up to 6 months post treatment
How does THERMAGE® work?

Thermage® uses a patented Radiofrequency technology to heat collagen fibres deep in the skin. This heat is transferred to the epidermis, separating the water molecules from the existing collagen encouraging an immediate contraction resulting in effective skin tightening. Results will continue to improve over the following months leading to a further healing response meaning additional collagen is deposited and remodelled for a more effective treatment. Thermage®can be used on all skin types, all year around. 

What complementary treatments are available?

All patients benefit from a comprehensive skincare regimen, tailored for their skin type and to tackle any history of sun and pollutant exposure. Our experienced aestheticians can devise a bespoke regimen following a skin analysis using our Observ 520X which provides 10 different metrics for analysis of the skins current condition. Profhilo® skin boosters also enhance the health and vitality of the skin.
