What is Thermage Lifting?
Wrinkles and sagging skin are common dermatological problems we encounter as we age. The good news is that there are many ways and means to eradicate these problems. With the technology that we have today, anti-aging solutions are also keeping up, thus, the existence of non-invasive skin treatments like Thermage Lifting.
Thermage Lifting promises to give younger-looking skin while not needing to undergo an invasive procedure. What it mainly does is tighten the skin and lift the sagging parts to create a smoother result for the patient. This is a non-invasive and non-surgical anti-aging treatment that can stimulate the production of collagen again with the use of heat. The technology used for this treatment is patented monopolar radiofrequency.
Thermage Lifting is quite similar to Ulthera because both offer the same solution and both are non-invasive treatments. The only difference that they have is the technology used – for Thermage Lifting, it’s radiofrequency while for Ulthera, this uses ultrasound energy to transmit heat in the deep layers for tightening the skin. They are both FDA-approved and very famous anti-aging solutions in Korea.
How does Thermage Lifting work?
Thermage Lifting treatment needs heat to stimulate the skin layers in releasing more collagen. In return, the skin will tighten and look younger since the layers inside are now restored.
The wonders of collagen restoration in the human skin lie with the healing process of the skin layers that happens underneath after the Thermage Lifting treatment. Soon, collagen growth will be restored continuously as the treatment proves to be effective. Skin layers would be rejuvenated, which will help the outer skin surface to glow and have a fresher look. The results will look natural as the lifting and tightening of the skin would be natural as well.
Since Thermage Lifting uses wonderful advanced technology, we can guarantee that this treatment is safe. Even though heat is used for this treatment, the skin surface won’t be harmed and the patient won’t feel any pain because this only targets the inside layers of the skin. Low heat is also used and radiated during a Thermage Lifting treatment session.

Preparation and procedure
Before starting any procedure, we at Theme Dermatology require our patients to book an appointment with us and be assessed by our doctors. We require this assessment to know how our doctors can help our patients with what they want and need. Through this assessment meeting, our doctors will check how they can perform the procedure correctly because they will create a treatment plan. Each treatment plan is unique for each patient’s needs and goals as well.
Together with this treatment plan discussion is the discussion about the potential risks and side effects to watch out for. We prioritize our patient’s safety and comfort above everything else.
Before the procedure starts, our doctor will clean the treatment area and apply numbing cream to lessen the uncomfortable feeling patients might encounter when the treatment is ongoing. Anesthesia can also be given to the patients who would like to have one.
Just like other non-invasive anti-aging treatments that we offer, Thermage Lifting is a quick procedure, from 40 minutes to an hour.

While Thermage Lifting remains to be a safe and painless procedure, there are some potential risks and side effects to be aware of. Patients must be ready for the following:
- Some discomfort during the procedure
- Redness and swelling after the treatment
- Tenderness in the skin when touched
- Tingling sensation during and even after the procedure
- Minor bruisings and numbness on some parts of the treatment area
- A temporarily flushed appearance after the treatment
Recovery and aftercare
Thermage Lifting only requires a little downtime for around a day or two, but almost immediately, patients can go back to their normal lives and routines after this treatment. Our doctors will be providing reminders and notes on how our patients can take care of themselves and their skin better after this procedure, especially for the first 48 hours after the procedure.
Patients must take note of the potential risks and side effects mentioned above so they would know what they can expect. They are also advised to remember the following:
- Avoid putting make up an hour after the procedure

Thermage Lifting is an anti-aging, non-invasive treatment that uses the radiofrequency technology to answer the lack of collagen in our patients’ skin, which causes sagging and aging-looking face. This treatment targets deep skin layers with heat and trigger the production of collagen as a result. With this, skin would be lifted and will look younger.
Results usually show after two to three months. The reproduction of collagen would need more time so that it can heal and tighten the skin better. These results can go around 6 months to a year, depending on the needs of the patient. We encourage to get repeated sessions for more permanent results.
This is a quick procedure that can last for about 40 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Thermage Lifting gives our patients another option to have a non-surgical and non-invasive anti-aging treatment to address their skin problems. Just like other treatments like this, Thermage Lifting is a safe and quick procedure that can solve skin-sagging, wrinkles, aging skin, hollow areas of the skin, and other aging-related symptoms.
This is a perfect procedure for those who are busy people, as the whole procedure lasts from around 40 minutes to an hour, and will only require a little downtime for the patient. This also promises a safe treatment process and effectiveness, given the time frame it usually needs for the results to show themselves.
