THERMAGE – LET YOUR EYES STEP OUT OF THE SHADOW

Your eyes are considered to be a window to your soul. They are usually the first thing people notice about you. But when the drapes covering those beautiful windows of yours are all wrinkly with way too many folds, it is quite depressing.

The skin of our eyelids as well as that surrounding our eyes is very sensitive as it is thinner than the skin on the rest of our body. Hence, it is more vulnerable to the effects of ageing and photo-damage. This area suffers from volume loss making your eyes look sunken, which is responsible for the appearance of dark circles.

The skin of your eyelids being so thin looks as though it has been crushed and wrinkled, complete with those deep folds (known as hooding) making you look like a haggard old lady. And although there still are some treatments available to reduce dark circles, replenish volume and get rid of crow’s feet, there seems to be nothing we can do about our upper eyelids. So we wait for a miracle.

Your wait is finally over – the Thermage  treatment for the eye not only helps get rid of your wrinkles and helps replenish volume; it is also the only treatment available that is 100% safe and effective to smoothen out your beautiful eyelids that also gets rid of that hooding. Thermage is a mono-polar radiofrequency device that uses heat to stimulate collagen remodeling within your skin, smoothening the skin around your eyes in the most natural way possible.

You don’t look done up, you don’t look plastic, you look like you – only miraculously yet naturally younger. And the miracle keeps getting better – even though you look great immediately after the procedure, as the collagen goes on remodeling with time, you keep looking younger day by day seeing peak results in 4-6 months. And the cherry on top – your results really last, your skin literally becomes younger. It is a one time treatment, although you can get treatments once every year or every 2 years depending upon the natural ageing of your skin thereafter.

Thermage is like a time machine for your skin wherein you can reset the years and defythe ravages of time.

Let not age define your skin- Thermage the new age skin treatment

Get back youthful skin with Thermage

Natural aging process, ineffective protection against the UV rays, pollution, and stress can all lead to your skin losing its natural glow and firmness. Due to these external reasons and some internal causes, your skin starts to thin as the collagen mesh underneath begins to lose its elasticity, and skin’s elastin loses its bounce. You skin cells stop absorbing moisture effectively. The ceramides that protect your epidermis become less efficient leaving your skin vulnerable to outside irritants. All these lead to faster skin aging.

Care for your Sagging Skin

As soon as you start noticing that your skin is losing its natural tautness, know that the fine lines will appear and your skin will start to sag. Expression lines will be deeper, and for many the face will seem to fall. As the skin falls the lines appear on various areas of your face starting with under eyes, around the eyes, around the mouth, forehead etc. Another aspect of this sagging is when your facial muscle starts to get loose. Unlike the rest of the body, your facial muscles are attached to the skin above and not to the bone below. So each time you contract the muscle to make an expression they drag the skin along and so the expression lines are formed. Sometimes your muscles also bulk up leading to change in facial shape.

The moment you start seeing these changes, you should visit your cosmetic dermatologist in Delhi.

Thermage is the new age Skin Tightening Solution

While one option to fight sagging skin is obviously to go under the cosmetic surgeon’s knife, the other one is thermage– a painless treatment that gives you younger looking skin. Thermage is a non-invasive treatment which is based on the radio frequency energy that stimulates your skin cell’s natural growth process. It smoothens and tightens sagging skin, and restores facial or body contours. Thermage has stood the test of time for being the finest non-surgical facelift treatment utilizing monopolar radiofrequency across the world,”.

For women and men with busy lifestyle, Thermage is the answer because the treatment can be customised to specific needs. You can expect some visible results even after the first session. A session can last from anywhere between 45 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on the size and area of the part where the treatment is being administered.

How thermage impacts your skin

Thermage treatment is all about how radiofrequency energy is used to stimulate deep tissues under the skin to kick start the natural renewal process. Treatment begins with a cooling touch on the skin that ensures that the top layer of your skin is safe and you are comfortable with the sensations. Then a specially designed treatment tip is placed against the skin in targeted areas where the radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating them and remodeling the collagen. This is followed by a burst of cooling sensation. This alternate heating and cooling delivers great results that has a continuous impact on your skin and you see the condition of your skin improving more each passing day.

“As your body regenerates collagen, you can expect to see continued improvements in your facial and body contours. This can happen for up to six months. We have seen that your body actually starts to produce new collagen thickening the collagen matrix and creating a smoothing effect on the epidermis,” explains Dr Soin.

What Thermage treats

It is really a wonder treatment because Thermage can be used effectively on almost any part of your body. It not only improves aging skin, but also helps in body contouring and melting cellulite thus smoothing orange peel skin around thighs, arms, belly, and buttocks.

Exilis Elite and Thermage Treatments

The Exilis Elite system consists of one hand piece, which uses monopolar radio frequency and ultrasonic energy. Radio frequencies consist of oscillating electrical currents, increasing the vibrations of molecules and ions, thus releasing heat, which works on the water contained in the target area. For this reason, the treatment is applicable to all skin types and help

The ultrasonic energy provides heat to the skin, and works on fat clusters by agitating and separating them. Breaking up the fat clusters facilitates the delivery of the monopolar radio frequency to the fatty (adipose) tissue, at the cellular level. The therapist will apply the hand piece over saggy and loose areas of the body typically flank, thigh, underarm and love handles. These areas are targeted with a continuous pulse of energy until the optimum temperature (45 degrees Celsius) for fat burning is achieved, and this temperature is maintained for about 6-8 minutes. The temperature emanating from the hand piece is automatically regulated by Energy Flow Control, thus making this procedure pain-free, and one that requires no downtime. Results are best seen after 5-6 sessions, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after.

Exilis helps to shrink loose tissue and skin, and boosts the production of collagen and elastin in the long term, which help skin regain suppleness and elasticity. The treatment is most effective on the forehead, eyebrows, under-eye area, crow’s feet, the décolletage, and abdominal regions.

The Thermage treatment, while also a body-sculpting treatment, functions in a slightly different manner. Here, the monopolar radio frequency is delivered in short cycles of 1-2 seconds where a small part of the targeted area is stamped with the handpiece. In this way, the hand piece is moved all around the targeted area. Thermage treatment can take anywhere between 1-3 hours. This treatment is also temperature controlled, and the application of a cooling spray periodically.

prevents the skin from burning. The temperature here is also maintained at the optimum 45 degrees Celsius.

While both Exilis Elite and Thermage utilize monopolar energy flow, Exilis combines this with ultrasonic energy. Thermage is different in that it consists of short bursts of energy delivered to small areas of the body; a process which requires a considerably longer time. Both treatments are used to tighten skin, and natural results can be seen after just one session. Additionally, in the long term, both treatments have been shown to improve deep wrinkles, as well as boost collagen production.

Verdict- it is virtually painless and extremely effective at targeting trouble spots. Dr Gargi will give you a post treatment plan followed by counselling to help you determine how to get long lasting results. Please remember to stay hydrated during and post the treatments. Typically, each person needs about 2-4 sessions spaced about 15 days apart to see visible improvements in skin texture and skin tightening. Also, these treatments require absolutely no downtime so you can even swing by during lunch break to have Exilis performed on you with no fears of scars or bruising.

Lastly, Exilis is slightly pricey but you can speak to the clinic to work out a good package for you and your needs.
