thermalift_1.jpgThermaLift (by Thermage) is an exciting, recently FDA approved technology that tightens tissue without surgery.

The procedure, also known as thermoplastic contouring or ThermaCool, is non-invasive and there is no “downtime” or recuperation required.
The non-surgical facelift / browlift technology uses a unique form of radio frequency energy to produce a desired cosmetic or therapeutic effect without damaging skin. ThermaLift can safely improve the appearance of skin in various areas including the eye area (crow's feet), lower face (jowls), forehead and neck. ThermaLift is also approved in the treatment of acne and acne scarring.

Clinical results suggest that some patients will experience cosmetic improvement previously available only with invasive procedures. This new technology is now available at Dr. Sapijaszko’s Clinic

How does ThermaLift work?

ThermaLift - or thermoplastic contouring utilizes computer controlled radio frequency energy. The procedure causes collagen contraction and tightening without damaging the skin (epidermis) thus providing a non-surgical "face lift".

 

How does my skin change?

Approximately four months after the ThermaLift treatment there is new and improved collagen in the dermis of your skin. Some patients experience skin improvement much sooner than that.
