What is Thermage?

We specialize in radio-frequency therapy procedures, such as Thermage, as a non-surgical option for our NYC patients interested in addressing skin tightening. 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, and on the face, and 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.

Who are the Best Candidates for Thermage?

Our New York Thermage patients come to us from all over NYC. Candidates are men and women of all ages and ethnicities. Because the procedure can accomplish so much, the candidates for the treatment range. Below, we’ve included some of the candidates we see on a day-to-day basis:

  • Many candidates come to us for Thermage because the area around their eyes has wrinkled, resulting in loose skin, which begins to show their age. With Thermage we’re able to treat both the lower and upper eyelid, resulting in a more youthful and rested appearance.
  • Many older patients come to us as the skin on their face has become more lax and oftentimes they begin to get a turkey neck or loose skin around the neck and chin line. With Thermage, we’re able to tighten the skin, providing our patients with more self-confidence and a younger look
  • We’ve also had luck treating the body in many of our NYC Thermage patients, usually targeting cellulite or dimples. Thermage has had success with many of the hard-to-treat areas in the body.
