What should I expect from a Thermafrax procedure?
As we age the collagen in our skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. Thermage™ uses radio frequency to safely heat the deeper layers of our skin, which in turn stimulates existing collagen and promotes new collagen growth for a younger looking appearance.
Once the Thermage portion of the treatment is complete, we immediately start the Fraxel. Fraxel laser treatment uses pinpoint laser beams that penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to eliminate damaged skin cells and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. A thin layer of gel is applied to the skin and the Fraxel handpiece is guided gently over the skin in a series of overlapping strokes. By simultaneously targeting thousands of microscopic areas of skin with a single beam of light, Fraxel laser treatment helps you quickly rejuvenate your appearance with fresh, glowing healthy skin.
While only one Thermage treatment is required; three Fraxel treatments, spaced one month apart, are performed to obtain the desired results.
