Thermacool, by Thermage

This system is designed to deliver high-energy radiofrequency energy to the skin to cause skin tightening both by shortening existing collagen and by stimulating new collagen. It is primarily used to lift the brows, and tighten facial skin and folds in the cheeks, chin, and upper neck. A recent innovation is “Eyes byThermage” designed to tighten the lids and lift the brow at the same time. Studies have also been done on other body areas such as the arms, thighs and abdomen. Although there is discomfort with the treatment, it can be managed with appropriate medication.
