All over the world, people dream of staying young and beautiful. There is an abundant supply of age-defying products and treatments in the market that all aim to fight, or at least delay the signs of aging. As one of the newest anti-aging treatments, ThermaFrax provides both skin tightening and skin resurfacing, with beautiful results. With little downtime, it is the perfect procedure for patients on the go. Below is more information about this popular new anti-aging treatment.
What is ThermaFrax?
ThermaFrax is the combination of Thermage Face and Fraxel laser, which are non-surgical rejuvenation treatments. Thermage tightens and lifts the skin by encouraging the development of new collagen, while Fraxel laser treatments take care of erasing signs of aging from the skin’s surface, improving wrinkles, skin texture, pores, scars and brown spot, targeting a specific area by dividing a laser beam into a thousand microscopic dots. Both treatments are FDA-approved procedures and have undergone extensive testing with clinical case studies.
What to expect?
ThermaFrax allows a patient to come in, have their procedure done, and then return to work with little downtime. Typically, patients see redness for a couple of days much like a sunburn, and then a tan and/or dry skin appearance which lasts 3-4 days. Results can last for years.
Which treatment goes first?
The first part of the treatment involves Thermage Face, which heats the deepest layers of the skin to tighten existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth. It also makes the skin look slightly pink. The procedure may take 60-90 minutes. Then, the second part of the procedure is Fraxel, which uses a laser treatment to activate advanced skin rejuvenation. A numbing ointment is applied on the face for 60 minutes, and then the laser treatment is done in 15-20 minutes. Fraxel is the accepted gold standard for treating acne scars, periorbital wrinkles, and for skin resurfacing procedures on the face, neck, chest and hands, resulting in smoother skin texture with little downtime.
When are the results going to be visible?
It is important to mention that even the treatment works quickly, it is not an instant fix. You will see gradual changes, but over time these changes will blow you away. Natural looking results appear over time in the course of your body’s collagen rebuilding process, usually after the first month of ThermaFrax.
Is ThermaFrax right for you?
Patients suffering from pigmentation issues, age spots, acne scarring, fine lines, and mild to moderate loose or sagging skin on the face and neck are all great candidates. Also, patients that are still not candidates for a face or necklift, patients that don’t want surgery, or patients that have no time for a “downtime”. It’s also safe for use on ALL skin types.
Aside from the face and neck, ThermaFrax can also be used to treat other parts of the body (ThermaFrax Body), like stretch marks, which also improve and become less visible.
