Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is happy to offer Thermage in San Diego. Thermage body contouring treatments use unique radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely heat the deep layers of your skin while cooling the surface of your skin to keep it intact during the procedure.

 This deep heating stimulates your body’s natural skin renewal process, which helps tighten existing collagen and form new collagen. Over time, sagging or wrinkled skin is replaced with smoother, tighter skin; improved tone and texture; and an overall younger looking appearance.

THE LAYERS OF YOUR SKIN: Your skin is made up of three distinct layers:

  • The epidermis—the visible outer surface
  • The dermis—the collagen-rich layer beneath the surface
  • Subcutaneous tissue—the “fat layer”; beneath the dermis that also has a web of collagen fibers

The collagen in your dermis and subcutaneous tissue is a protein that keeps your skin youthful and tight. But as you age and get more sun exposure, that collagen simply breaks down faster than your body can rebuild it, and your skin may start to sag or wrinkle.

What Does Thermage in San Diego Do?

In response to collagen breakdown, there are many skin tightening treatments that operate by heating the inner layers of skin. But unlike laser treatments and other technologies that heat the superficial skin layers, Thermage uses unique radiofrequency (RF) technology to reach deep into the dermis and subcutaneous tissue to cause tightening in the layers that matter most.

Here’s how this skin tightening treatment works:

Deep heating. The deep heating of Thermage treatment helps tighten the collagen in your dermis and subcutaneous tissue, while also stimulating the formation of new collagen. As a result, you’ll see tighter, smoother skin and improved tone and texture, starting immediately and continuing in the months following this skin tightening treatment.

Integrated cooling. At the same time that Thermage treatment heats the deep layers, it also cools the epidermis, keeping the surface of your skin safe during the procedure. As a result, your skin needs no recovery time, so you can quickly resume your daily routine.

All from a single treatment. Best of all, you need only one Thermage treatment to get the full benefits. In fact, because it heats so deeply, Thermage treatments is the only non-invasive procedure that helps contour skin in a single skin tightening treatment with little or no downtime.
