Thermage at the Maryland Plastic Surgery Medical Spa...
Thermage is the perfect "pick-me-up" for someone who would rather not have surgery. If you have sagging skin and would like to see an improvement without surgery, then Thermage may be ideal for you! Baltimore cosmetic surgeon Dr. Adam Summers can use the ThermaCool device to tighten your skin without surgery. You can go home the same day, and no one will ever know! The procedure is so simple that it was demonstrated live on Oprah.
Thermage is also sometimes called ThermaLift, Thermal Lifting, Thermaplasty, or Thermoplastic Contouring.
Thermage is an FDA-approved breakthrough procedure. It is the first treatment of its kind for tightening loose skin without surgery. We know that younger skin contains substantially more "healthy" collagen than older skin. The ThermaCool device is designed to stimulate the growth of new collagen - this reduces wrinkles and tightens your skin. To achieve this effect, the device uses radiofrequency energy to heat the lower layers of your skin while simultaneously cooling and protecting the top layer of your skin.
Although you may see some results right away, your body will continue to produce new collagen for several months after your Thermage treatment. As the new collagen fibers are developed, your skin will appear smoother and more refreshed each month until maximal results are obtained 4-6 months following the procedure.
Dr. Summers has been using the ThermaCool device since 2004. Based on his extensive experience with the Thermage procedure, Dr. Summers independently developed some of the protocols which are now used nationally. Taking into consideration that each patient regenerates new collagen at variable rates and amounts, Dr. Summers' Thermage protocols help to ensure that each patient treated with the device obtains the desired results. These protocols are under continual refinement, and we have been able to obtain good results in patients who were previously treated elsewhere without our protocols.
