Thermage Dubai is a solution for your signs of aging.
Skin aging is a natural process.
As you age, the collagen that keeps your skin tight and firm begins to break down.
This results in signs such as wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin appearing on your face and body.
This procedure helps to increase new collagen growth to return the firmness of the skin. Hence, experts call it a nonsurgical facelift.
Does your skin sag too? Well, Thermage Dubai may be a good treatment to consider.
Keep reading this article to know its procedure and whether you are the right candidate for the treatment.
What Is The Reason Behind Sagging Skin?
Your skin contains collagen fibers running through three layers.
The outer layer is the epidermis. Underneath that is the dermis which is rich in collagen.
Next, there is the subcutaneous fat layer that contains collagen fibers.
Aging, exposure to the sun and genetics result in the breaking down of collagen over time.
This causes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin.
Sagging skin can also result from weight loss, stress and pregnancy. Thereby, it loses smoothness and firmness.
Though, regaining that smooth texture and firm skin is attainable.
Collagen production should be stimulated in the dermis and subcutaneous layer.
For that, you need to energize those layers to increase the collagen supply. Heating the tissues helps to produce more collagen and prevents its supply from depleting.
The Thermage Radiofrequency technology Thermacool helps to lifts skin, generates new contours and tightens your overall face and body.
What’s more, is that you can perform it on all skin colors and skin types. It can give an even result for different skin colors and tones, unlike lasers that work better on lighter skins.
Through Thermage RF, new collagen will form over a period of three to six months.
It uses bulk heating to target the layers that are collagen-rich. This results in new collagen production however, the Radio Frequency also moves across the fibers stimulating them to contract.
Hence, that gives a contouring effect to your skin.
Who Can Get The Treatment?
If you notice your skin is sagging then you are the perfect candidate for the procedure.
Other signs of collagen depletion such as wrinkles and facial lines are indicating that you can get this treatment though it is mainly for skin tightening.
Usually, people over the age of 35 will prefer to get the treatment.
Thermage Dubai Procedure
You can get this cosmetic procedure on these body parts:
It helps to treat skin laxity as in a sagging jawline, thin, loose and lax skin, plus crepey skin on the area above the knees.
Furthermore, it can work on the periorbital region i.e the forehead and around the eyes.
The mid and lower part of the face includes the jowl, under the chin, around the mouth and cheeks.
You can get Thermage face treatments separately on these areas or all around the face.
Hence, it tightens and firms skin in these areas.
Before your doctor begins the procedure, they will thoroughly cleanse your face.
Ensure that you are not wearing mineral makeup such as pearl eyeshadow or mineral brush beforehand.
In fact, avoid wearing any makeup and skincare before the procedure, also skip any tanning plans and just proceed with a clean face.
Your doctor applies an adhesive pad on your back or leg to form the circuit for RF treatment.
Furthermore, a paper transfer will place a grid on your treatment area.
It helps to guarantee uniform treatment as it can direct the position of the treatment. Moreover, it will help customize it according to your needs.
The Thermatip passes will vary for each treatment site. After the procedure, your doctor will clean the grid markings.
Thermage FLX heats the collagen in the deep layers of the skin.
While it is heating, the tip’s vibration helps cool the surface of the skin to not make it extremely uncomfortable for the patient.
You can give feedback on the Radiofrequency pulses to analyze the level of heating that is comfortable and achieve desired results.
So the cooling tip keeps your skin surface comfortable while inside, the heat is doing its work.
It is successful in separating water molecules from collagen fibers.
This causes the contraction of the fibers hence, resulting in skin tightening.
Over the next few months, new collagen grows and deposits underneath the skin’s outer layer due to the secondary healing response.
Furthermore, as the new collagen keeps increasing, it makes your skin firmer and tighter.
The results appear over a period of three to six months.
The rejuvenated skin layer appears on top which is smoother and tighter.
These results will keep showing for up to 6 months by getting a single treatment.
The procedure will wrap up in between 30 minutes to 2 hours excluding skin preparation.
This depends on the number of pulses as well as the surface area of the treatment site.
Results and Aftercare
