    Fighting Loose and Sagging Skin Solution with Thermage

    As we age, our skin loses its tightness and elasticity and instead of hugging our shape closely, it starts to dangle in folds. And if we’ve been overweight and lost the weight, that extra bulk will have stretched the skin, again making it lose some elasticity.

    Probably most of us have used a “skin toner” at some point. It’s a bit of a misnomer. Skin doesn’t “tone up”. It’s our muscles that tone up, when we exercise. By exercising a muscle, we enlarge it somewhat, and strengthen it, so that now it’s toned up.

    When we’re young and slim, our skin is elastic enough to shrink and stretch with our changes in bulk, and it will stretch slightly to stay smooth over the slightly enlarged muscle. But as we age, our skin loses this ability, and once stretched, it stays that way and forms folds or jowls.

    There are surgical ways to tighten skin. The excess is removed and what remains is stitched in its new position, tightly covering the tissue underneath. Some examples are a jowl lift, a necklift, and eyelift treatments. But all surgery brings risk. At Westside Aesthetics we prefer to use non-surgical methods.

    How Thermage Helps

    Thermage is a way of tightening skin, smoothing out wrinkles, and restoring the lost facial contours. It’s done with a device that uses ThermaCool technology. It has a ThermaTip, and delivers energy to the skin in the form of radio waves. The FDA approved it for treatment of facial wrinkles non-invasively.

    Depending on how large an area you want to have treated, it can be done in just a few minutes, or perhaps an hour or so. There are no stitches, no swelling and no downtime. You can pop over to your nearest Westside Aesthetics location on your lunch hour to have it done, and return to work immediately afterwards, which is why it’s been given the nickname of “lunch hour facelift”.
