The Aesthetic Skin Clinic is a leading cosmetic skin clinic in the UK, which specialises in both surgical and non-surgical treatments and procedures, including Botox, hair removal, facial, body and breast surgery.

As dedicated skin specialists, we are committed to providing our clients and potential clients with all the information they need so that they can make informed decisions on what treatments or surgery is right for them. Over the last few months, we have been going into detail about some of the different services that we offer here at our skin clinic, most recently looking at liposuction surgery.

This time we are focusing on a non-surgical treatment; thermage face treatments.

What is thermage?

Thermage is a non-surgical treatment that works to tighten and shrink the skin so wrinkles are reduced. It also gives better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline. The non-invasive cosmetic treatment has been clinically proven to tighten and contour skin so that it gives you a younger looking appearance and natural looking results.


Where can you get it?

The areas that thermage works better for are:

  • The face (The face and jaw line are treated to tighten the cheeks and lift the skin around the jaw line)
  • The eyelids (Tightens and lifts the skin around the eyelids. It reduces wrinkles and allows the eyes to appear open – less hooded)
  • The neck and chest (It can be done here but it isn’t as effective as the other areas treated)
  • The body (You can read about this here)

How does it work?

How exactly does thermage work? Well, it uses radiofrequency energy to heat a large area of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. It tightens the collagen that is already present, and stimulates the production of new. In the process, it tightens skin, reduces the appearance of unsightly bumps and lumps, smoothes wrinkles and lifts the skin. The lifting is caused by the collagen in the skin contracting and then tightening.

How is this different to any other cosmetic procedure?

Whilst it’s true that there are a number of different cosmetic procedures that also reduce wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance; thermage is one of the best. It’s non surgical, doesn’t involve any needles, and requires little to no rest after it has been carried out. It’s suitable for any type of skin type – making it incredibly easy for anyone to have it done. It heats deeper than any other type of radiofrequency treatment, and is the most effective at improving and invigorating collagen for that youthful appearance.

How long will it last?

You should start to notice results as soon as you’ve had the procedure, with your skin looking noticeably tighter and smoother. Over the next 5 or 6 months, this will become even more apparent and the tightening will become more significant. Previous results have shown that it should last up to 24 months, but you should note that everyone is different and it depends on individual lifestyles.
