What is ThermaLift Skin Tightening Procedure?
If you’ve recently lost a significant amount of weight, let us start by first saying congratulations. Losing weight is big deal, not just because of the pounds shed but also because of the restored vitality and renewed sense of self-worth that often come with such an accomplishment.
At Medarts Weight Loss Specialists in San Diego, many of our patients follow their successful weight loss journey by seeking out new ways to pamper and love themselves more fully. They come to us with inquiries about safe cosmetic procedures that can help them look as young as they feel. We’re thrilled to report that those determined to address wrinkles and sagging skin love the results they get from the ThermaLift Skin Tightening procedure.
What is ThermaLift and how does it work?
ThermaLift is a non-surgical, pain-free solution to wrinkles and sagging skin. The treatment uses a radiofrequency device to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin by delivering heat to cells in the lower layers of your skin (dermis) without harm to the upper layers (epidermis). The heat causes your collagen to contract, tightening the skin structure right away. Over time, the growth of new collagen and elastin continues to diminish wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging, resulting in a radiant, more youthful you.
ThermaLift is most commonly used to tighten skin on the:
- Mid face
- Lower face
While the above are the most common areas of treatment, ThermaLift can be used on any part of the body.
What to expect from your ThermaLift skin tightening procedure in San Diego
When you come to Medarts for your ThermaLift treatment, we’ll begin by applying an anesthetic cream to the treatment area to help keep you comfortable during the procedure. We’ll also use a cooling cryogen spray intermittently during treatment to diminish the heat’s effect on the surface of your skin.
The length of time required for your ThermaLift procedure depends on the size of the treatment area—most sessions take 30 to 60 minutes. While you may experience minor redness for a short time following your treatment, it can easily be covered with makeup if necessary. Some people call ThermaLift the “lunchtime face-lift” because you can return to your daily routine immediately after your treatment.
Results from your ThermaLift skin tightening procedure will begin to appear within 3 to 6 weeks, and you’ll continue to see improvement for the next 6 to 12 months!
