Firm and Lift Loose Saggy Tummy and Thighs with Body Shape By Thermage
Body Shape by Thermage
No one likes what age does to our bodies. We would all like it a little tauter and firmer than what we see in the mirror nowadays. The new and improved Thermage CPT and Body Tip will help put you back into your pre-pregnancy jeans and swim wear, reduce your grip on those love handles and allow your sleeveless numbers to return to their rightful place in your wardrobe once more.
How does it work?
Collagen breaks down much faster than it can be rebuilt as our skin ages, resulting in dreadful sags, unwanted bulges and wrinkled rough dull thinned skin. Life-changing events like pregnancy further add to the damage. Unlike other more superficial treatments, Thermage uses a unique radiofrequency technology to cause deep volumetric heating of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, while the surface skin is simultaneously cooled for protection and comfort. Deep tissue heating tightens existing collagen and stimulates skin’s natural renewal of new collagen. No injections, incisions or recovery time are involved.
The upgraded Thermage employs advanced Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) to enhance patient comfort while maximising efficacy. The new Body Tip 16.0 has also 5 times the coverage of the standard version, reducing procedure time dramatically for large areas and further improving your treatment experience.
What benefits should I expect?
You may notice some immediate firming due to collagen contraction with the effective and uniform volumetric heating in the deep skin layers that matter the most. Significant improvements in your skin will take place progressively over the next 6 months as your body is stimulated to produce new collagen. Patients are usually delighted to see natural body-bettering effects like:
How many sessions do I need?
- Firming and lifting of saggy abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms
- Toning and contouring of loose bulgy tummies (eg. after pregnancy and weight loss), love handles, or less-than-perfect limbs and behinds.
- Smoothening of lines and wrinkles above the knees or hands
- Improvement in texture and tone of thin crepey dull skin in the thighs, arms and tummy
Majority of patients are pleased with their results after 1 session. More severe cases may start with a primary course of 2 treatments. Results are long-lasting, with an average of 1 year duration.
Is there any special care?
There is no special care required before or after this treatment. As this radiofrequency treatment is “colour blind” and very safe, it is suitable for all skin types. You can resume your work and usual activities right after treatment as well. Use of medical-grade compression garments like the Solidea Shapewear is encouraged after treatment to enhance skin tightening and smoothening results.
What other treatments work best with Body Shape by Thermage?
UltraShape is a safe and effective non-invasive fat-loss treatment that will help you banish the fat bulges that you can never seem to shake off from your tummy, flanks, thighs or arms. This peerless combo will give you the greatest inch loss and best visual improvement as excessive fat is eliminated and overlying skin is tightened and toned.
Body Shape by Thermage is available at our Citysphere and Villagespace branches (Singapore).
