A LEAP FORWARD IN SKIN TIGHTENING & CONTOURING TECHNOLOGY
The Thermage procedure will help to eliminate the signs of aging skin, and will help you to achieve a more youthful appearance. Thermage is often referred to as: ThermaLift, ThermaCool, and Radiothermoplasty. The Thermage is a procedure performed with an advanced radiofrequency device and requires no incisions or recovery time.
Dr. Fred Weksberg of the Weksberg Centre for Cosmetic Dermatology in Toronto Ontario is pleased to offer the latest Thermage technology in the new Thermage CPT System which represents a leap forward in skin tightening and contouring technology. With superior results and greater patient comfort the Comfort Pulse Technology™ and a vibrating handpiece offers a more comfortable and effective treatment.
How long does the procedure take ?
The Thermage treatment may take anywhere from 30 minutes to
2 hours depending on the size of the area being treated.
How many treatments will I need ?
At The Weksberg Centre for Cosmetic Dermatology in Toronto,
Ontario, for many patients one treatment session is often
enough. For some patients however more than one treatment
may be desired to achieve optimal more results. For all
patients, your skin will continue to age after your
treatment and therefore touchup treatments may be required.
Is it painful?
Dr. Weksberg and his staff at The Weksberg Centre for
Cosmetic Dermatology in Toronto, Ontario believe that all
procedures should be as comfortable as possible. This
treatment can be sensitive, so we occasionally use mild oral
sedatives prior to treatment. If you choose to take the
sedative you must arrange a ride home.
Will I have any downtime ?
One of the best things about Thermage is the fact that you
have Zero down time after you treatment. Patients can resume
their regular routines immediately following treatment and
often will return to work the same day assuming they did
not receive the sedatives of course.
When will the results be visible ?
Improvement is immediately visible and continues to improve
for up to six months! During the first 30 days, contraction
of collagen and elastic tissue start creating a firmer
looking zone to the treated area. Over a 6 month period
there is new collagen and elastic tissue formed, causing
gradual improvement. The treated areas have improved
firmness and contour.
In those patients that have very loose skin early results
may be seen within the first 4 weeks. However, the best
results are gradual and may take 6 months to be fully
Can I combine Thermage with other treatment options ?
YES! Thermage will be used as a single modality; however at
The Weksberg Centre for Cosmetic Dermatology in Toronto,
Ontario combined treatments are the wave of the future.
Usually patients will have a combination of procedures:
Botox to improve the expression lines giving patients a more
confident softer look to their face, and
Fillers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm or Voluma. Thermage will
tighten the skin but will not change the blotchy uneven tone
pattern, pigmentation, or vessels. Intense Pulsed Light
(commonly known as Photorejuvenation or IPL) is a very
natural combination with Thermage to improve all the effects
of sun and aging.
What areas can I improve with Thermage ?
Other body parts
that can be successfully treated include the abdomen,
thighs, areas above the knees, and upper arms. Patients that
are good candidates exhibit mild to moderate looseness or
creepiness of skin. After Thermage treatment the skin
appears tighter and more contoured. Thermage is not a
treatment for fat reduction or for removal of large areas of
