What Is Thermage?
Thermage uses radiofrequency energy to heat up deep layers of the skin. The heat energy generated in turn causes the collagen to remodel and contract. The resultant effects are skin tightening, improvement of sagginess and it also generates a lift on the face or the body area that is treated.
The zones of treatment occur over a range of depths based on the radiofrequency settings, as opposed to Ultherapy which is specific for particular depths.
Results of thermage depends on your own collagen synthesis and results peak at 3 – 6 months and improvement can still continue over time. Improvement is synergistic with Ultherapy.

Who Is Suitable For Thermage?
If you are looking for a non-invasive face or body lift, I would suggest using a combination of both thermage and ultherapy to achieve the ideal stimulation to deeper layers of your face and body. This stimulation will in turn allow collagen to remodel at the needed zones.
