Skin Tightenning

Solta Thermage FLX is the latest generation of Thermage technology, the revolutionary non-invasive treatment originally made popular by Linda Evangelista. Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care is home to a large suite of the latest and best laser technologies, including the Solta Thermage FLX used for skin tightening. Those in their thirties often undergo treatments every 3 – 5 years to prevent aging and address early skin laxity, that goes down to every 2 for clients in their forties. Those in their fifties better appreciate Thermage for its ability to prolong the time before surgery is needed as well as for complementing plastic surgery results, especially around the eyes. Thermage before and after elective surgery is a great way to optimize and sustain results so you can be the best you possible.

Thermage Treatment Areas

Thermage is a safe and proven treatment for the face and body. Adapters for the Solta Thermage FLX technology allow experts the ability to treat the full face and body including:

  • Upper eyelids
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Booty
  • Upper arms

Thermage is completely non-invasive with no cutting or needles required—which means there is no downtime. It is a great option for younger patients to start the prevention or prejuvenation and for more mature clients it is an option if they are not ready for surgery or they want to maintain their surgical results longer.

Thermage Treatment and Results

Clients require just one treatment of Thermage FLX for maximum results, although for those wanting to avoid surgery and needing little more help, treatment can be repeated in 6 months. Treatments are 45 – 90 minutes depending on the site(s) treated, which means you can get treated and return to your day. There is no downtime with Thermage, making it easy to fit a session into a busy schedule.

Do keep in mind that the results from Thermage are not immediate and that you will see results reveal themselves and continue to improve over time. Great for those wanting to keep it secret.

How Thermage Works

As we get older, the collagen that keeps skin firm begins to break down faster than it can be synthesized. This results in lines, wrinkles, and a crepe-like appearance of the skin. Thermage works by using radiofrequency technology to heat up the deeper layers of skin that were rich with collagen in our youth. This heat makes the collagen contract and encourages new collagen to be produced. The result is beautiful, taut skin that turns back the clock using our own natural collagen production system.

FAQs About Thermage Skin Tightening

Can I do multiple sites with one Thermage treatment?2020-10-29T09:32:49-08:00

Of course! Patients can customize their session to include full face and multiple body parts in one session. Since Thermage treatments are generally considered comfortable and quick, there is no need to schedule multiple appointments in order to allow for a “break.” In fact, one of the biggest benefits of Thermage is that you only require one treatment per site, so many clients enjoy multiple site treatments during one appointment.

How long will skin tightening results last?2020-10-29T09:31:29-08:00

How long results last varies based on the client and their unique skin. However, it is very common for Thermage results to last for several years. However, it is important to remember that aging is a fluid process and is continuous, so if you like the results and want to retain them, you should repeat the treatment every 1-3 years depending on your age.

How long until I see skin tightening results?2020-10-29T09:30:53-08:00

Full results appear 3 – 6 months after your treatment since the body requires time to create new collagen.

Are Thermage treatments uncomfortable?2020-10-29T09:27:16-08:00

No, Thermage treatments are typically not considered painful. However, Pro-Nox is always available for those who are highly sensitive. A blend of oxygen and nitrous oxygen that is controlled directly by the patient can help make any treatment even more comfortable.

“The ladies here are really on the ball. They’re knowledgeable and efficient as well as understanding and kind. It feels like they really care about each patient and they’ll help you figure out what your best options are, procedure and price-wise. Scheduling appointments is a breeze and you get an email reminder a few days prior. Worth every penny, in my opinion.”

“I really thought that my old place had the latest technology, services and products (commensurate with their high prices) but I now know that this was definitely NOT the case. My lessons learned? … Get a consultation at another skin clinic for a fresh perspective (they’re usually free). Read web-sites and reviews. Do not assume that staggeringly high prices and armies of staff equate to the best skin care. I made the change to PA Laser 6 months ago and I honestly cannot be any happier with my skin than I am today. In fact, I’ve NEVER had such healthy skin in my life.  Friends, families, neighbors…they’re astonished by the change.”
