WHAT WILL MY SKIN FEEL LIKE AFTER THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE?

Immediately following a Thermage procedure your skin should feel tighter, smoother and more youthful. Over time you may notice additional tightening.

The most frequently reported incidents after a Thermage treatment are as follows on or around the treated area as follows and all have disappeared within a few days or weeks of the Thermage treatment:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Blanching
  • Lumps/bumps/nodules
  • Ridging/rippling/waffling
  • Burns/blisters/scabbing /scarring
  • Hyper or hypo pigmentation changes
  • Bruising
  • Numbness/tingling/temporary paralysis
  • Mild/moderate discomfort (during treatment)
  • Itching
  • Skin surface depression - a rare (<0.2%) but longer lasting side effect

If any of these symptoms persist after your Thermage treatment please contact the clinic immediately

Contact Dr Rita Rakus or call +44 (0) 20 7460 7324

HOW LONG AFTER THE THEMAGE TREATMENT CAN I RETURN TO MY NORMAL ACTIVITIES?

Most people can return to their regular activities immediately following the Thermage procedure. Some people, however, experience a mild redness (similar to a wind burn) after the Thermage treatment, but it usually disappears quickly.

You should avoid exposing your skin to extremes of heat and cold and protect your skin with a sun block cream after the Thermage procedure. Your normal makeup and beauty regime can be followed immediately.

Do NOT have any other form of facial treatment or therapy after the Thermage treatment until authorised to do so by your practitioner.

HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS OF THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE LAST?

The Thermage procedure causes immediate tightening of the collagen structure with additional tightening over time. Unpublished reports by experienced cosmetic physicians indicate that Thermage treatments results may last 3 years or longer based on the patient's natural ageing process.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS FROM THE THERMAGE PROCEDURE?

Recent published studies conducted by Thermage show that measurable tightening improvements appear gradually over 2 to 6 months after a single Thermage treatment session, but many patients have reported seeing an earlier response. Because all individuals are different it is, however, not possible to completely predict who will benefit from treatment with the Thermage device. A small percentage of patients do not respond to the Thermage Treatment. Your practitioner will advise you if additional treatments or smaller touch-up procedures are required to achieve the desired end result.
