Pregnancy, aging, and weight loss can do a number on our bodies. The loose skin that is left behind can now be tightened, in one treatment, while you are awake, without surgery, and without any downtime. Thermage Skin Tightening for the body has shown some of the most impressive results. Results where you really need to look closely to make sure it’s the same person in the before and after photos.
How Did My Skin Get Loose?
As we age, gain weight, or have children, our collagen tends to thin, and stretch. Just like an elastic waist band, with enough stretch, it will eventually lose it’s elasticity. In the skin, the stretched collagen results in loose skin. The main areas where this is noticed is in the abdomen, upper arms, and thighs. The knees in particular tend to bunch the skin on the front thigh. We call these the “tennis knees”.

How Thermage Tightens Loose Skin
To tighten the skin back, the damaged collagen needs to be heated. Thermage Skin Tightening does this using the RF energy, targeting the water that hugs the collagen fibers. Once this water is heated above 40 Celsius, the collagen (protein based) contracts. This process kick starts the bodies’ own rebuilding system and grows new, thicker, more elastic collagen in place. The new collagen then contracts, and furthers the skin tightening process. The result is smooth, tight skin. Results can last for about 3-5 years. Look at the photos for a better understanding of what Thermage Skin Tightening can do for you. And make sure you check out our Thermage videos to see the procedure in action!
