Thermage- is it the way to go?

February 9, 2009

Are you feeling saggy? have you hit 40,41,43 and more than your credit has cruched? Maybe thermage is the way to go.

What is it? When I hear the word ‘thermage’ fo some reason I imagine heat and water. So is it all a lot of  hot water?

Here is a random before and after picture:

Thermage is a non-invasive, no-downtime cosmetic surgery technique that tightens aging skin and renews the facial features. Thermage was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in late 2001 and has grown in popularity in the last few years. Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to enhance the appearance of facial skin around the eyes and forehead, producing desirable results with no incisions and virtually no recovery time. During the Thermage procedure, the epidermis (outermost layer of the skin) is cooled down with a spray so as not to damage the visible layers of the skin. The Thermage procedure also works by activating the body’s own natural healing response, leading to new collagen production.

Cost: about $2000 ( a quarter the price of a facelift and no pain )

Available in Kuwait?
