Skin Tightening After Thermage

It is not unusual to feel the "heat" or a sense of skin tightening after Thermage.  Thermage heats the skin and produces new collagen to affect an overall skin tightening.  It is a great non-invasive way to tighten the jowls and other areas of the body.  Best, Dr. Green

It is not at all uncommon to feel a tightened sensation to your skin following Thermage.  This is related to the collagen contracture phase which can be appreciated very rapidly following Thermage.
