As we age, our skin gradually loses its natural elasticity and firmness. Our facial contours start to change. Gravity becomes our worst enemy, and our jowls start to sag.
During my conversations with many of my patients in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, one of the most common questions I am asked is how can we treat the sagging skin along their jawline and how can we get rid of the loose skin under the chin. So many say to me, while gently pulling back their lower facial skin with both hands, “If I could just get this look back, I would be so happy!” Most patients aren’t looking for anything dramatic-just enough of a change to get back that firmer jawline, remove excess sagging skin, and get rid of that dreaded turkey neck! The Thermage® skin tightening system is the ideal solution for those individuals with mild to moderate sagging who are looking to improve the appearance of their skin’s tightness.
Thermage® remains the gold-standard for non-invasive skin tightening, and I believe it’s the most effective way to tighten sagging skin without surgery or downtime. When used on the face and neck areas, Thermage®:
- Tightens, smooths, and contours skin
- Lifts loose, sagging skin-particularly at the jawline and under the chin
- Softens wrinkles, especially around the mouth and eye areas
- Improves the overall texture of your skin
Thermage® uses radio frequency energy to gently heat the deep tissue layers below your skin’s surface. As Thermage® heats the collagen below the skin, it strengthens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen (the ‘glue’ that gives our skin strength and elasticity). The result is toned, tightened, and younger-looking skin.
One single treatment delivers noticeable sculpting results. Of course, it’s not like a surgical facelift but it definitively does reduce your double chin and firms the jawline. After your Thermage® appointment, you’ll love how your skin looks and feels firmer and rejuvenated right away. We’ll even show you a before and post-treatment picture before you leave the office. Patients are amazed by this immediate change. Best of all, you’ll continue to look even better as new collagen forms over three to six months, and further improves the appearance of your skin. The results are long-lasting. Most patients enjoy up to two years of tighter skin.
