Skin tightening procedures are able to tighten and smooth the skin for a healthier, more youthful glow. These procedures promote new collagen growth deep within the skin in order to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and provide an overall refreshed look to the skin.
At the office of Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Steven H. Dayan of Chicago, Illinois, we use Thermage technology for skin tightening. This technology can improve mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles occurring around the eyes and mouth, as well as mild to moderate skin laxity, or sagging. It is a good option for individuals in need of more limited lifting who are not yet ready for a facelift, and for those who have already had a facelift and need a little touch-up.
Thermage is a minimally invasive skin tightening procedure that is performed in the office setting. It does not require anesthesia and involves minimal risk. Treatment times average thirty minutes to one hour depending on the area being treated. It is important to remember that these are progressive treatments. Results are not seen immediately but rather improve with time.
Thermage is a proven, unique radiofrequency treatment that can help to improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin. In as little as one treatment, patients report smoother, sleeker and younger looking skin and with little down-time, and it offers you a natural looking result! Thermage is effective on the upper and lower eyelids providing a more youthful and rested look. This treatment is also known for its ability to improve the loose skin under the chin, commonly called the “turkey neck”, as well as loose jowls and sagging skin. Thermage also helps to smooth out lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production. It can also be used on the body to reduce unwanted bulges and dimples, temporarily improving the appearance of cellulite.
We offer the innovative and popular ThermiVa treatment, which helps you to reclaim, restore and revive your feminine wellness that childbirth or the natural aging process might have affected. Give yourself and your partner a sense of happiness that might have been lost before. ThermiVa treatments use radiofrequency energy to gently heat tissue to rejuvenate collagen, without discomfort or downtime.
