How the Thermage Process works
The Thermage process acts of each part of the skin, and the skin consists of 3 different layers:
Epidermis: The epidermis is the outmost or the external layer of the skin and it is the only visible layer
Dermis: The layer that lies below the epidermis is called the dermis, which is also the middle layer of the skin where there is a high concentration of collagen
Subcutaneous layer: This is the interior layer of the skin which is generally made up of a web of collagen fibers and fats.
Due to the exposure of the sun, the collagen deteriorates as the aging process begins which makes the skin wrinkle and sag.
Thermage is a non-invasive treatment process that will help to tighten and restore the skin collagen on all the 3 layers.
Thermage CRF technology

Who is Thermage treatment suitable for?

Thermage treatment is performed with a computerized instrument, which when placed on your face gives radio frequent energy to the inner and middle layer of the skin. Hence you can feel a warmth on your face, which stimulates the tightening of the collagen. But at the same time a cool refreshing spray will be sprayed on the outer layer of the skin.
