State-of-the-art, non-invasive skin tightening
As one of the leading treatments to tighten skin and restore volume, Thermage is arguably the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure available today. By using radiofrequency energy that penetrates deep into the skin’s surface, Thermage tightens underlying structures while stimulating your body’s natural collagen production. With Thermage’s noninvasive, no-downtime approach to body contouring, patients are left feeling and looking great. To find out more about Thermage, please read below or call our office today.

The Many Benefits of Thermage
Patients desiring noninvasive, dramatic results with no downtime should look no further than Thermage skin tightening delivered by Dr. Amron. This groundbreaking treatment procedure allows our patients to enter our office and leave an hour later, already feeling the rejuvenating effects of Thermage radiofrequency. Thermage is the gift that keeps on giving. During the months following your procedure, it will bear more and more cosmetic fruit as your skin continues to tighten, one of the benefits of receiving Thermage.
Thermage works by simultaneously heating and cooling the skin. The heating effects of radiofrequency target the underlying collagen layer, while the cooling effects keep the skin surface comfortable.
The latest version of Thermage is called Thermage CPT, which stands for Comfort Pulse Technology. This is different from previous generations of Thermage in two ways. First, it delivers radiofrequency in micro pulses that keep the patient more comfortable during treatment. Second, the hand piece vibrates with each pulse, reducing the sensation of heat.
Because Thermage CPT is so much more comfortable than previous generations, Dr. Amron can make more passes over the skin. Instead of 4-5 passes, he can make up to 12 passes with each treatment. This means that Thermage is not only more comfortable than it’s ever been, it also provides results that are twice as effective.
Lastly, Thermage is one of the safest skin tightening procedures available. At the office of Dr. Amron, we have performed Thermage on hundreds of patients, each one to a great result. This is not just due to the fantastic design of the device itself, but also because of Dr. Amron’s total expertise with every Thermage skin tightening procedure he delivers. All in all, when combined with Dr. Amron’s skill and experience, Thermage provides excellent skin tightening results.
- To summarize, benefits of Thermage CPT include:
- No downtime
- No painful recovery period
- Up to twice as effective as previous generations of Thermage
- 100% safety record
Candidates for Thermage
The tightening effects of Thermage are created by heating and cooling the underlying structure of the skin producing collagen and creating lift. Dr. Amron has found that patients between 35 and 50 are usually the best candidates for Thermage. Older patients will see benefits from a Thermage treatment depending on the existing level of collagen in the skin. Patients with little collagen, very thin skin and significant sagging would not get a good result with Thermage alone. In these cases either a surgical facelift, or the use of injectable fillers or a combination treatment would give them the rejuvenation they are seeking.
For patients who cannot have elective surgery due to existing medical conditions, Thermage is an exciting way to have a non surgical facelift or to tone and lift other areas of sagging skin. As a top tier dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Amron has the experience necessary to produce the best results using Thermage alone or in conjunction with other treatments.
Preparing for Thermage
There is very little to do when preparing for a Thermage treatment. Since it is noninvasive and does not require anesthesia, patients only need to avoid putting any oils or creams on the area to be treated for a few days. The skin will be thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment but oils and creams may penetrate into the skin and be difficult to remove. This ensures that patients are comfortable during treatment.
Additionally, damaged skin cannot be treated. Be careful when going out in the sun prior to treatment to avoid sunburn which will require postponement of treatment.
Following Thermage, patients can return to their daily activities including things like swimming, exercising or going to the beach. While it is good practice to always wear sunscreen when outdoors, Thermage does not require a period of time of diligent protection from sun exposure. Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment and patients can confidently schedule meetings and dinner engagements the same day.
Dr. Amron will follow up in two months to monitor progress and again at the six month mark. While follow up treatments are not usually necessary, some patients may want to continue the tightening process with another treatment. As a highly respected dermatologic surgeon with decades of experience, evaluating the progress of Thermage treatment and recommending further rejuvenating treatments, if requested, is always part of the service he provides.
The rejuvenating effects of Thermage are not limited to the face. In fact, Thermage can be used all over the body to tighten contours and deliver a refreshed appearance.
- Dr. Amron uses Thermage to effectively treat the following areas:
- The eyes. Thermage can be used on the upper and lower eyelids to reduce the appearance of bags or fine wrinkles.
- The face. By increasing collagen production, Thermage can smooth wrinkles and fine lines throughout the entire face.
- The neck. For patients with sagging or droopy skin in the neck, Thermage can deliver a tight, smooth texture.
- The body. Thermage can also be used all over the body. Areas that most commonly need Thermage are the abdomen, arms and inner thighs.
