“MyThermagetreatment has made my post-menopausal skin feel pre-menopausal again - plumper, tighter and glowing”
Dr Rakus is now ranked the busiest Thermage clinic in Europe
The facial skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer (also known as the fat layer) that has a web of collagen fibres running through it.
As you age, collagen in these three layers breaks down and the skin on your face begins to sag and wrinkle. Naturally, treatments that work on just the surface can't do anything to restore the collagen in the dermis or the inner subcutaneous layer of your skin.
Thermage is the only treatment option that rejuvenates the collagen deep in your skin, with none of the negative aspects of other treatments. Unlike injections or fillers, Thermage works across your entire face, including forehead, eyes, nasolabial folds, jaw line, jowls and the area under your chin.
In the Monday 6 May edition of Daily Mail and Mail Online, Thermage is featured in an article by Tanith Carey, entitled 'Would YOU try the no-knife neck lift to look as good as Helen Mirren?' Thermage is mentioned as an alternative to surgery: 'For the needle-phobic, a technique called Thermage uses radio waves to tighten loose or sagging skin. They work by heating up the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and plumping it up — some patients say they see results for up to two years after. Prices vary, but are from £1,000 to £2,000 for a course of treatments (thermage.com).'
