The Thermage Experience

Some people are afraid of getting a face lift, or maybe it is just too expensive for them right now, but they want some skin tightening that will help them look and feel better. The alternative to surgical intervention is a radiofrequency treatment called “Thermage”.


The Thermage treatment is a good alternative for those individuals that do not have extremely saggy skin, but who desire to look tighter as they age. Men and women alike get this wonderful treatment. Many people combine Thermage and Fraxel treatments as a means to achieve more than just tightening.


Surprisingly, Thermage treatment will continue to tighten your skin for a period of up to six months. This gradual tightening ensures a natural look that keeps looking better. If you are looking for a very fast, overnight fix for your face, Thermage is NOT the answer. If you are a patient person, and understand that you will not become an overnight sensation, but you will tighten slowly as your cells regenerate throughout a six month period, then Thermage right IS for you!  (503) 363-8589


About the Thermage CPT System
The Thermage CPT system represents a leap forward in skin tightening and body contouring technology. The Thermage CPT incorporates proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology™, along with a breakthrough vibrating handpiece, to offer the maximum in treatment efficacy and patient comfort. Thermage is the premier non-invasive procedure to help tighten and contour skin in a single treatment with no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime.

About the Fraxel re:store Dual System
The new non-ablative Fraxel re:store Dual system takes the industry leading Fraxel technology to the next level by adding a novel 1927 nm wavelength, the first-ever application of a Thulium laser in the aesthetics market. The new wavelength enables physicians to treat multiple body areas in one treatment session and better address pigmentation and other dyschromia with minimal discomfort.


Many people combine Thermage and Fraxel treatments before and after,
as a means to achieve
more than just tightening.

No matter which treatment you
opt for, teamwork and a little time
are the keys to success!


What is the Thermage process?

  • The Thermage experience begins with a consultation in our office, to determine what your expectations are, and whether or not you qualify to have this treatment. All questions will be answered at this visit. Just a clue about how some people structure their treatments, many people opt to get this treatment about every six months to ensure a tighter appearance for a long time. The reason people opt to get more than one treatment is that even though the results of these treatments have been touted as being “permanent”, time keeps moving on and eventually your skin will show aging from whatever time has lapsed.

  • After your initial consultation, your nurse will set an appointment for you and you will follow the pre-treatment suggestions. Your treatment in the office will start with a deep cleansing and the application of a grid which will ensure that every inch of the area being treated will have equal time from the pulses. Your treatment could take up to two hours, depending on the size of the area being treated.

How does Thermage treatment feel?

Unlike some people’s perception, Thermage does not have to be torture. The truth is that if your nurse keeps you within the known effective range of energy, your treatment should be successful. When the treatment is over, you should feel fine, and you can go about your day with confidence that no one will be asking you what happened to your skin. You may, however, feel some slight discomfort in some of the areas treated, and you may want to apply some makeup right after the treatment as you can appear somewhat flushed.

Finally, something to expect is that when you are discharged from our service, we will follow up with you to make sure you are doing everything that supports the success of not only this treatment, but also that you will begin to practice some new habits that will ensure the longevity of the results of your treatment.

Some of our outstanding in-spa and home treatments are designed to target the SOURCE of aging, not the “signs” of aging like most products out there claim. These treatments are recommended to use before, after and between treatments, no matter which treatment you opt to receive.


Teamwork and a little time are the keys to success!
