5 Things No One Tells You…

  1. Make sure you’re getting what you pay for
  2. You are not going to look like you’ve had surgery
  3. Have a little patience
  4. You can have any area of skin treated
  5. Not all radiofrequency treatments are equal

Smoother Skin In Just One Treatment

First of all, let me just say, good choice! Thermage has been around for decades and has an excellent safety record. Thermage skin tightening is also a go-to treatment for celebrities (we’re talking about the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Gwyneth Paltrow) because of the natural-looking but effective results; not to mention the distinct lack of recovery time so that they can float straight out of the clinic and no one would have any clue that they’ve just had a treatment.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment

So, we know that Thermage tightens your skin and that A-listers love it, but what else is there to know about this non-surgical treatment? I’ve called upon nurse Jane Lewis, The Skin to Love Clinic’s Thermage expect. Jane is, in fact, not just the Clinics expert but an expert the world over; once the trainer for all Thermage providers in the UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East, she’s had clients flock to her from all corners of the globe to have a Thermage treatment with her. Who better to give you insider knowledge on this skin-tightening treatment? Here are her top tips when considering a Thermage treatment:

1. Your Thermage Cost: Make sure you’re getting what you pay for

“When you have a Thermage treatment, the practitioner will use a single treatment ‘tip’ which they attach to the device. This single-use tip is exclusively for your treatment and contains the exact amount of Thermage energy pulses that you should have during your treatment. It’s important that you see your practitioner open a new Thermage tip for your treatment.

This will be in a sealed plastic pouch within a small, branded box. The reason I labour on this point is that, during my time as a trainer, one of the areas I identified as a ‘training need’ was some practitioners told me that their clinic would book in Thermage clients and often would only use half the treatment tip on each person because the schedule wouldn’t allow for a full treatment; a few said they only used half the treatment tips energy on a client and then used the remaining half on the next client.

This meant that their client would miss out on fifty per cent of the Thermage energy which naturally will impact their results. Of course, I advised them that this was absolutely not to be done as the client would not see the benefit. After their training, I would follow up with the clinic to see what results they had started to get, and all had seen greater patient satisfaction. Most Thermage providers will understand the importance of using one full tip per client, but I think it’s important to be aware and to know what to look for.”

2. You are not going to look like you’ve had surgery

“Thermage is a type of non-surgical skin tightening. It is a radiofrequency treatment that involves no needles and no surgery, ideal if you can’t afford to have any downtime after your treatment and don’t want to have a surgical procedure. I’ll talk more about this later, but Thermage uses your skins natural rejuvenating mechanisms to achieve your results. This means that you are always going to end up looking like you; so many of us worry about looking like a different person after a cosmetic procedure.

We are not removing skin during a Thermage treatment, we are rejuvenating the elements of your skin and tissue that give you youthful, tighter skin. If you want or need, to have skin removed then you will need to have cosmetic surgery to achieve that kind of result.”

3. Have a little patience

“I mentioned earlier that Thermage triggers the repair and rejuvenation system within your skin. This means that your existing collagen contracts and gets some of its bounce back, and also your skin is tricked into creating beautiful new collagen to help firm, smooth and tighten the area you are concerned about.

As practitioners, we carefully apply the Thermage energy to the exact area you want to improve and then it’s a little bit of waiting game whist your body takes over and does the rest. As with most skin treatments, this doesn’t happen overnight and can take a few months for you to see your full results, although most of us notice positive changes in our skin in the lead up to this.”

Facts About Thermage

  • It is a non-invasive treatment
  • It gives natural-looking and effective results
  • You can have an area of skin treated
  • There are two types, namely Termage FLX and Thermage CPT (our favourite)
  • It is a non-surgical radiofrequency treatment

4. You can have any area of skin treated

“As humans, we tend to focus on just our problem area-‘I want to treat my face with Thermage so that’s the area Thermage treats’-however, Thermage is fantastic in that it can treat pretty much any area of skin that we want to treat! The most popular treatments in my Clinic are Thermage eyes, Thermage stomach, Thermage neck, Thermage arms and Thermage knees and thighs. The treatment areas are almost limitless!”

5. Not all radiofrequency treatments are equal

“There are many radiofrequency treatments available both in-clinic and for home use. They are not all the same and are not all equal. I’ll firstly touch on the at-home radiofrequency devices; they are not as powerful as professional devices and therefore it will take a lot longer for you to achieve results with these. The main point I think we should know is that the deeper the treatment energy goes into your skin, the longer the results tend to last.

Cheaper beauty devices are often more superficial and generally, you need to have a course of treatments. Clinical treatment devices such as Thermage are usually far more powerful and provide a more intense treatment. Thermage is also a single treatment so, conveniently, you don’t have to keep going back for treatment sessions.”

Thermage Reviews Bonus 6. She prefers Thermage CPT to Thermage FLX

I know we said ‘5 things’ but we couldn’t leave without including this!

“I have the Thermage CPT device in my Hertfordshire skin clinic nevertheless, when the Thermage FLX was launched I was eager to try it out and was luckily one of the first allowed to do so. However, after some debate and trials on my clients who have had multiple Thermage CPT treatments with me, I decided that my preference was definitely the Thermage CPT for client comfort. Clients from my trial reported that, in terms of results, they had no preference between the CPT and FLX.”

    10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

    I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.
