What is Thermage?

Simply put, Thermage is an absolute game-changer. This non-invasive treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to tighten the skin. It’s best used around the eyes, on the face, can also be used on the body. We’ve been very impressed with the success we’ve seen in our NYC Thermage patients, as the skin tightening treatment can take years off the face. Thermage is highly customizable and transforms the structure of the skin below the surface while treating imperfections that have developed over time.
