Many baby boomers are experiencing what normally happens to one’s aging skin and are looking for methods of facial rejuvenation. The face begins to appear older because of sagging and loose skin.
Repetitive facial movements, gestures and expressions combine with gravity and elasticity loss to contribute to the appearance of the sagging face. Gravity is working against youthfulness because it pulls everything downward. Not everyone is up for a full surgical procedure, due to fear or cost factors, but with today’s latest technologies, there are amazing alternative options such as ThermaCool.
ThermaCool is a procedure patented by its founding company, Thermage. Thermage is a business that specializes in the advancement of beauty technology and is based in California. This facial rejuvenation method involves using waves similar to those from a household microwave in order to stimulate collagen and tighten up. It began to be used in 2002 on foreheads but gradually evolved to being used over the entire face. This process is so amazing that it has even been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show.
During the procedure, the radio waves are sent into the skin. These waves provide a heat transmission which revs up the production of collagen, the bodily agent that is responsible for elasticity. Not only does it immediately tighten the area, but over a timeframe of approximately four to six months, more new collagen is manufactured within the body, creating an even better result.
A cool spray is applied to the surface during the process in order to keep it from being too uncomfortable. There reportedly is still a bit of pain due to all the nerve sensations in one’s face, but it isn’t unbearable.
This process is done in a physician’s office and requires no incisions or extensive recovery time. The result is immediate and improves over time, as well. The cost is substantially lower than a full surgical facelift, which adds to its popularity. Interestingly, the ThermaCool procedure doesn’t work very well on men. Men tend to have a different type of skin which is rougher and thicker. This skin difference affects the success of this treatment so is not recommended for male skin.
Women, however, have achieved wonderful results, immediately, and without resorting to the scalpel. This technique is best performed on women between the ages of forty to sixty years of age, who have experienced aging, but not to the extreme extent that one in her seventies and eighties might have reached.
If one is looking for a way to rejuvenate you without surgery, ThermaCool would be one method to ask a physician about.
