Thermage in Chicago- Radiofrequency Treatment for Facial and Body Aging

Thermage® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can safely be used for the treatment of aging skin on the face and on different body areas and has no downtime. This treatment uses a patented device called ThermaCool™ with a tapering called ThermaTip™ which is used to deliver controlled amounts of radiofrequency (RF) energy. A certified physician or board-certified plastic surgeon can safely control the device in treating areas affected by aging. A touch of skin with the device’s tip delivers heat deep in underlying skin tissues tightening them and at the same time boosting collagen production essential for youthful looking skin. Thermage heat production is produced in tandem with a cooling effect which protects your outer skin from damage during treatment. Thermage is effective in the treatment of sagginess, cellulite, bulginess, fine lines and wrinkles on the eyes, face, and body. Your physician will design a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. If you live in the Chicago area, you can have Thermage treatment at Skin Deep Medical Spa under the management of Dr. Bloch. Book your consultation online at

"More than 1 million treatments

Thermage first pioneered the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles using radiofrequency energy over ten years ago, and to date physicians in over 2500 practices and 80 countries have treated patients. That’s more than 1 million treatments for women and men of all ethnicities, each with their own reasons for wanting to look and feel younger.

How does Thermage® work?

Thermage treatment to remove sagginess and fine lines around the eyes or face typically lasts for about 45 minutes. Other body areas may need 90 minutes to complete the treatment. Before your treatment, your face is cleansed. Next, your physician will direct the energized Thermatip to areas affected by aging which may include facial areas around the eyes, jawline and neck and as well as some body areas. Thermage radiofrequency energy instantly tightens deep structures which correct sagginess. Collagen production is also stimulated by the heat which enhances the formation of taut skin for a healthy, smooth and youthful looking appearance.

What are the expected results with Thermage® treatment?

Most people who have had Thermage for treatment of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagginess have reported improvement in one session. Early results from tightening improvements are notable in as little as one day and continue to improve for up to 6 months as natural collagen production continues. Over the improvement period, facial lines will be filled in for a smoother look. The new results can last for years with good skin care and healthy eating.

Can Radio Frequency tightening be done when you’ve had fillers

There are several studies which have looked carefully at this question and indicated that RF waves do not damage fillers which have already been injected.  Likewise you may have fillers following RF treatment without any adverse effect.  They are actually complimentary treatments.
