Loose, saggy, and crepey looking skin slowly appears as we age and our skin’s resiliency, firmness, and elasticity decreases. Major life events like pregnancy and weight loss can impact it, too.
Thermage® is a non-invasive treatment to help smooth, tighten, and contour skin. It helps restore tightness to the skin on the face and neck, including saggy necks and jowls, and can make eyes appear brighter and less tired by reducing ‘hooding’ above the eyes.
On the body, bellies, knees, legs, buttocks, and arms can all benefit from this treatment by tightening, lifting, and firming the skin and helping reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What to expect
When the handpiece touches your skin, you will feel a cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, then cool once again. The heat signals that the underlying layers of skin are reaching the necessary temperature to smooth and tighten, while the cooling protects the surface of your skin from damage.
Throughout your Thermage® treatment at INLIV Calgary, our specially-trained registered nurse will monitor your progress and speak with you to help balance your comfort with your optimum results.
For some, a mild redness may develop though it usually resolves within an hour after treatment. As there is no surgery involved, most clients return to their normal activities immediately.
While some improvement may be visible immediately after treatment, your skin will continue to improve over the next two to six months as your body continues its natural collagen rebuilding process that is stimulated by the Thermage® treatment. And the results are long-lasting – for some it may last for years, depending upon the condition of your skin and the natural aging process.
This treatment helps turn back the clock, but it won’t stop the clock.

Individual results may vary.
How it works
Thermage® is a treatment that works to reverse the appearance of loose, lax skin by using the energy in radiofrequency waves to heat the dermis of the skin. This heating process stimulates collagen production, resulting in a gradual tightening of the skin. Collagen is a naturally occurring protein found in bones, muscles, tendons, and your skin, giving it strength and structure. Though collagen naturally depletes as we age, it can be stimulated by therapies like Thermage®, Intense Pulsed Light, and Fractional Laser Rejuvenation.
