Thermage is a safe, non-invasive procedure that, through deep heating technology and radio frequency, allows your skin to repair itself naturally. The treatment not only stimulates new collagen growth but also tightens your existing collagen. With no surgery, no injections and little down time, it can give you tighter, smoother-looking skin, softened wrinkles and lines and an overall younger appearance. Improvements are immediate and can last from six months to several years, depending on your skin condition, sun exposure and the aging process. Thermage is extremely safe and is used for treating periorbital wrinkles; tightening cheeks, neck, and jowls; and reducing under-chin sagging. However, it is also effective in tightening skin anywhere else on the body, including legs, arms, the abdomen and buttocks. The procedure itself ranges from one to three hours, depending on the size of the area to be treated. You will feel an immediate cool sensation followed by a brief hot sensation, then a cool sensation again. The procedure is painless and, since this is a completely non-invasive treatment, the side effects are minimal. Some patients experience mild to moderate swelling, which could lead to time off from work or normal activities. Minimal redness does occur, but usually disappears shortly after treatment. No special aftercare is usually needed after having the procedure. Heat related problems or complications can occur, but are rare.

Fraxel Dual Laser
The Fraxel Dual laser is the perfect treatment to improve skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, acne scarring and surgical scarring, as well as sun damage. It is a fractional resurfacing laser that has two different wavelengths that can be customized to address your unique concerns. Fraxel Dual works effectively by carefully targeting damaged skin with microscopic laser columns deep into the skin. Only a fraction of tissue is treated at a time, leaving surrounding skin untouched, which promotes rapid healing and requires very little downtime. Your body's natural healing process is stimulated and old skin cells are replaced by new ones, creating a fresh healthy glow and a more-even skin tone and texture. Fraxel Dual laser treatments are FDA approved and are effective on all skin types. Four treatments, spaced at least four weeks apart, are recommended. With the summer wrapping up, this is the perfect time to start treatments. Individual and package pricing are available.
