Wrinkle prevention is one of the best ways to get a head-start on looking and feeling your best well into your late 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. If you’re like many women who want to turn back the hands of time, Thermage may be just the ticket to maintain your natural beauty while reversing signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.

According to an article at DailyGlow magazine, Thermage is ranked as one of the best ways to reverse the signs of aging while preventing wrinkles. That’s because Thermage works by tightening skin, literally reversing the signs of aging and improving the skin’s vitality and response. Oprah continues to list Thermage as one of the best ways to stay looking young and fabulous. When it comes to Thermage as an anti-wrinkle prevention treatment, here’s what you need to know.


With the use of sophisticated, non-invasive radio frequency heat, both men and women can help prevent wrinkles with Thermage. How, exactly? Thermage rejuvenates skin and sagging tissues by slowing the natural collagen degradation by tightening spirals of collagen our skin naturally contains.

To understand Thermage, look no further than how a dryer affects a cotton T-shirt. It shrinks it with heat. In a similar fashion, Thermage also tightens the skin with the use of specialized heat. From a prevention stand-point, this skin tightening brings skin back to a more youthful state, in turn providing prevention benefits far greater than other types of cosmetic treatments.


Thermage is not surgery and it does not have the painful side effects typically experienced with plastic surgery. Instead, Thermage uses specialized heat to target collagen strands in drooping tissue to tighten and therefore lift existing skin. This is performed with the use of a hand-held tool that is drawn across the skin’s surface to produce the desired effect. As the procedure is completed, it will initially feel like a cooling sensation followed by a deep but brief heating sensation. It then returns back to cool, and the process starts over again until the Thermage treatment is complete.


Patients who elect Thermage treatments can expect smoother, younger looking skin with little to no downtime. Drooping areas are rejuvenated and lifted. Thermage is also a wonderful body treatment and can target cellulite, sagging skin post-pregnancy and other areas that need rejuvenation.
