If you are someone who wants to have a facelift but you don’t want to go under the knife, the good news is that there are alternatives to having a face lift through surgery. There is technology available that gives men and women the look that they want without having to go through the pain of a surgical procedure. This is known as Thermage.
Thermage, makes use of the energy of radio frequency applied to the patient’s face. How it works is that it heats the collagen in the face, which will compose the skin. When the collagen responds to the heat, it helps the skin of your face which was weak, disorganized, and loose to tighten, organize, and strengthen. What does this mean? It means that your face is going look tighter and younger.
Here are the advantages that people who have Thermage have experienced:
• A tighter jawline
• Improved jowls

• Higher eyebrows
• Softening of scowl lines
• Softening of crow’s feet
• Tightening of skin beneath chin
• Softening of creases around mouth and nose
• Reduction in active acne
• Softer scars from acne
• Same results for light and dark skin
As you can see, there are a lot of advantages to having the Thermage procedure for a face lift. So how can you expect to feel after it is done? Here are some of the things that you may experience after the procedure:
• Redness – Usually only lasts 1-2 hours post procedure, but can last on occasion for several days.
• Swelling – This is mild to moderate, but it often lasts longer than the redness, anywhere from 3 to 7 days. There may be mild swelling that lasts longer.
Although redness and swelling may be an inconvenience, it should be noted that the longer that the swelling and redness is there, the better results you will likely see.
Thermage is a great way to get the results that you want without the pain and recovery time of surgery.
