Thermage is a weight loss product that goes into the “alternative” weight loss category. We all know about diet pills, capsules and shakes, but every once in a while we still stumble across a different type of product such as this. Thermage claims to improve your appearance by using a “revolutionary, non-invasive radiofrequency technology”.
What does that mean? Thermage claims to tighten and renew your skin on three layers by using it’s “Capacitive Radiofrequency Technology” that heats up your skin to its inner layer, which may cause collagen to become more firm. This product also claims to be an alternative to pricey laser therapies. This procedure can only be performed in a doctor’s office by someone who is certified with the equipment, and it is aimed at women between the ages of 35-60. The website says if your skin is too loose already, the results won’t be as effective, making Thermage more of a preventive measure.
Thermage was founded in 1995, and the goal of the company was to find a way to improve not just your face but your entire body. The main areas of focus are the face, lips, belly, legs, hands, and under a user’s eyes. The offical website says that many men use this procedure as well as women, who make up the more traditional wrinkle treatment market.
The actual procedure lasts between 20 and 120 minutes depending on the area being treated. The face is fairly small and doesn’t take long to treat, but legs are long and take quite a while to fully treat. You will feel small bursts of heat during the treatment but apparently an anesthetic usually isn’t required. The official Thermage website is laid out well and is very informative. There are pictures on the website but they are more or less just random pictures of people after treatment. This is not very helpful, since there aren’t any before pictures.
- Thermage is a non-invasive procedure.
- There is a 1-800 number listed on the official website so you can get more details on this new procedure.
- There is no price listed on the official website but a quick web search shows that this treatment costs between $1000.00 and $5000.00.
- We don’t see any kind of money back guarantee available on the official website.
- There are no topical creams of any kind mentioned on the official website.
- While it isn’t nearly as invasive, this procedure actually seems about as complicated and time-consuming as classic cosmetic surgery.
The Bottom Line
Thermage is definitely an “alternative” wrinkle treatment that may appeal to those who have had bad luck with traditional wrinkle creams but don’t want to commit to a facelift. We can’t really find enough information to determine if this is worth your time or money. If you are very serious about full-body wrinkle reduction, this could be worth looking into, but if you are primarily concerned about a few facial wrinkles then you may want to keep it simple and just try a very powerful wrinkle reducing cream before you spend thousands of dollars on a treatment such as this.
