What is facial thermage?
Thermage of the face is a non-invasive, non-surgical method of correction.

This method appeared on the basis of another method called
diathermy. Diathermy is one of the methods of thermal treatment, which
was introduced into general medical practice in 1905.
The term translated from Greek means (diatfiermaino
– I warm up, dia – through, through and therme – heat, warmth)
warm through (by) heat.
The effect of thermage is based on the effects of radio frequency radiation.

blood circulation, improving lymph flow, improving metabolic processes
in tissues, self-regeneration of collagen fibrils, to
increase their tone, as well as to replace the defective inelastic protein
on new elastic fibers. The current reaches the level of the dermis and hypodermis,
strengthening and tightening the skin from the inside.
It should be noted that this method is used in cosmetology.

physiotherapeutic purposes radiofrequency tissue irradiation
occurs at a great depth, then in cosmetology
it is advisable to use a small amperage so that it does not penetrate
deeper subcutaneous fat. In another case, the high-frequency current
will not have a positive anti-aging effect. With this

What can be improved with thermage?
Thermage method provides:
- tightening of tissues in the cheekbones and cheeks;
- strengthening the contour of the neck and chin;
- reduction of nasolabial folds;
- eliminating fine and reducing deep wrinkles;
- reduction of wrinkles in the mouth;
- strengthening the oval face;
- elimination of sagging and sagging skin;
- the removal of loose skin on the eyelids;
- improvement of the skin in the neck;
- strengthening the skin frame, due to the formation of a new elastic

provided that the procedure is carried out in a medical institution or
aesthetic salon under the supervision of a specialist. During the procedure
the skin is very hot, so the doctor must exercise
thermoregulation of the skin in order to avoid burns of the epidermis. For this
the device is equipped with special nozzles that cool the skin and
regulate temperature as well as the degree of exposure to electric
current to the skin. Too high penetration of high frequency current into
dermis and subcutaneous tissue have an aggressive effect on
collagen, so that it can collapse.
Indications for the procedure
The procedure is recommended for the following signs of age
- gravitational ptosis of soft tissues;
- overhanging eyelids;
- with bags under the eyes;
- in the presence of lacrimal sulci and nasolabial folds;
- with wrinkles around the mouth;
- in the presence of a second chin.
Contraindications to the procedure
Thermage of the face is contraindicated in the following cases:
- autoimmune diseases;
- pregnancy and lactation;
- the presence of a pacemaker;
- the presence of metal prostheses;
- infectious and chronic diseases in the acute phase;
- dermatological diseases.
There may be some complications to the face cleansing:
- redness of the skin;
- swelling of the skin;
- increased skin sensitivity as irritation and
- spots and blisters;
- scar formation.
