Considering a Thermage Face Lift

If you are a person whose skin is just beginning to age, and looks like it may need a facelift soon, you may find that a thermage face lift is something you want to look into as an alternative.

A thermage facelift is not actually a facelift; it is what you should do to avoid a facelift or the surgery that comes with the facelift. For most people who are just beginning to really show their age, this will work. However, if you are in desperate need of a facelift and far advanced into aging, it will not work as well. That means that if you are looking for drastic results you should look into an actual facelift, but if you are merely looking for a little bit of an improvement, and not the perfect pace, then the thermage face lift will work for you nicely.

The thermage face lifts are really heating, and cooling to avoid burning your skin, applied strategically to your skin in order to help tighten your skin and which reduces wrinkles, the turkey like neck, or some of your loose skin. It may even reduce any acne or acne scars you may have, as well as improving your jowling and tightening your jaw line.

When you undergo a thermage face lift, your doctor will begin by using local anesthesia in strategic places all over your face. Depending on how much anesthesia and how high the treatment setting is you may feel little to know pain or discomfort during the treatment. Then a grid will be applied to your face in order to guide the treatment. And then starts the treatment. Your doctor will hold a treatment tip over your skin. This tip will deliver radio frequencies and the cooling that is needed to keep your skin from burning.

For the most part, if you are looking for better results then you will need higher settings on the thermage machine. In some cases though, it may just be that you are recommended that you use a mild setting and the just undergo yet another treatment in six months. The first treatment will improve your skin for that long, if not longer.

The thermage face lift treatments are a great thing for some people who either can not have surgery or who want to avoid undergoing surgery if at all possible. Despite this, there are a few things that a person who decides on these treatments will undergo that, though they aren’t as bad as facelifts, may be uncomfortable, painful, or visible. First of all, there is a chance of warm or even burning sensations during the procedure that can become quite painful. Usually after a procedure a person will suffer from red, and sometimes sensitive, skin for anywhere between a couple of hours and a few days after the procedure. There will also be swelling for at least the amount of time that the skin is red though normally it will last a little longer.
