Nowak Aesthetics is the leading name in all things related to skin care and body contouring in San Diego, and it has beefed up its roster of groundbreaking procedures with the addition of Thermage. Patients from all over the area have been seeking advice from Dr. Nowak, wanting to experience this nonsurgical, skin tightening wonder that has been touted for the fast and safe treatment of unsightly sagging skin.
For those of you who have been brought here by your curiosity about the results that you can potentially obtain from this procedure, you have come to the right place.
Themage is essentially a procedure that relies on the use of radio waves to conduct heat within the deeper layers of skin to tighten the existing collagen fibers while, at the same time, stimulating the production of new collagen. This technique has been found to be exceptionally useful in tightening skin on the face, eyelids, the hands, the neck, chest, as well as the parts of the body that are prone to fat accumulation such as the abdomen, hips, and thighs.
For many patients the effects can be immediate due the instantaneous contraction of the collage fibers that were subjected to the heating procedure. This will then be followed by a progressive tightening of these fibers, giving the patient skin that feels tauter and stretched out so that it is no longer saggy or droopy.
On the other hand, some patients will not immediately notice any changes in the parts subjected to Thermage. This, however, does not mean that the procedure did not work. A good percentage of patients experience a seemingly delayed response to the treatment because their collagen fibers react at a slower rate than others. In most cases, these patients will begin to see and feel the difference between 1 to 6 months. So you don’t have to worry about not seeing immediate results because, after a Thermage treatment, all patients will definitely experienced an increase in the amount of collagen in the deeper tissues, and this will help firm up the skin and prevent sagging.
