Thermage FLX tightens skin via radiofrequency-based collagen induction therapy. At Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care, it quickly became one of the most popular treatments for skin laxity anywhere on the body or face. However, Hello! magazine recently named it as the best option to reduce laxity on the backs of the hands. The hands always give away your age because it is a thin, delicate area that is often exposed to UV damage. The report stresses that Thermage results are not immediate and that it will take a few months to see full results. However, most clients see significant improvement in just 2 – 3 months, with full results sometimes taking up to one year to appear. It’s worth the wait considering it is a tolerable treatment that takes just 30 minutes and no downtime. Most clients don’t even require a topical numbing cream.
Hello! also recommends dermal fillers for the backs of the hands. Not only does skin become lax with age, but we also lose good fat in this area. This can result in hands that are veiny or witch-like. By combining Thermage with dermal fillers, you can seriously turn back the clock on an area that is problematic for many (especially women). If you have hyperpigmentation on the backs of the hands, laser skin rejuvenation, Morpheus8, or a chemical peel can help to get rid of these unwanted signs of aging.
What to Expect When You Heat Things Up
Radiofrequency can be used to heat up the deep layers of the skin where collagen develops. The tip of the device helps keep the skin surface cool so you stay comfortable. As the heat is delivered, water molecules are separated from the collagen. This causes an instant contraction, which eventually will turn into skin tightening. Our bodies produce a lot of collagen when we are young, but this production slows down year after year. Fortunately, with treatments like Thermage, we can gain control of collagen production and tell our bodies exactly where to produce it.
Thermage is gentle enough that it can even be used on the upper and lower eyelids, which makes it a popular alternative to eyelid lifts. According to the makers of Thermage, it works 25 percent faster than comparable treatments and it is one of the more comfortable options thanks to its built-in cooling technology. There is no need for your provider to change handpieces (which is the norm with other technologies), ensuring a consistent treatment throughout. Over 50 clinical studies and two million treatments around the globe have shown just how safe and effective Thermage is—the before and after photos speak for themselves.
