Thermage - The Facelift of the Future?

At my Duxbury skin spa, we've recently added Thermacool lift by Thermage. Touted as the non-surgical face lift, the procedure has shown impressive results for certain candidates. The process uses radiofrequency dermal heating that causes contraction and tightening of the skin. It is FDA approved for the forehead and periorbital region. Together with Botox Cosmetic, lines and lax skin of the face can be diminshed significantly. The procedure takes approximately 1 hour, a full treatment can take several months, and results should last up to 3 years. Stay tuned for more progress reports.
