What causes skin sagging and/or loose skin?
The aging process is a normal skin evolution that happens over time. As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. At Orentreich, we provide skin tightening and contouring with the use of a therapeutic procedure called Thermage®.
What is Thermage?
Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin.
How does it work?
As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Thermage uses patented radiofrequency (RF) technology to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth for younger looking skin.
How long will the results last?
The effects continue to improve for up to six months following a single treatment. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and natural aging process.
How long before I can return to my normal activities?
There’s no special care needed after the procedure and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
