Thermage® is probably the most effective way to tighten the skin in the least invasive fashion. In fact, it could be considered a noninvasive facelift for men.
Unlike other types of lasers that can cause redness, burning, swelling, and bruising, Thermage® does not irritate the skin, so the male patient can go back to work immediately after a treatment. Therefore, it is an ideal procedure for male facial rejuvenation because of the “zero” downtime needed for recovery.
Thermage® is based on radiofrequency technology. Heat is generated by radiofrequency waves, which targets the collagen underneath the skin. This causes a tightening of the fibers, thereby inducing skin tightening above.
There are 3 layers of the skin: the epidermis, the dermis and the subcutaneous fat underneath. Throughout these layers is a web of collagen fibers that relaxes with the aging process. Thermage® is the only radiofrequency device that acts on all 3 layers of the skin by tightening the collagen web, which causes an immediate improvement in the texture and tone of the skin. Thermage® can be used on any color of skin. This treatment can be repeated in 4-6 months because that is the period of time it will take to see the final results.
Dr. Calabria believes that Thermage® is the best non invasive technology for skin tightening in men and is ideal for male facial rejuvenation because of the zero downtime needed for recovery.
