Get Smoother, Tighter, Younger Looking Skin Without Surgery

Sep 2nd, 2014 In: Anti-Aging, Skin Care

Winston-Salem Monthly - September 2014

Dear Dr. Anne,

Every morning I wake up, look in the mirror, and pull back the skin on my face wishing it was tighter. I really don’t want to have surgery but would love results similar to a facelift. I’ve tried creams, had facials, and stayed out of the sun but my skin is still sagging. What would give me the tightening I want without going through actual surgery?

Dear Lori,

You are not alone! I hear from so many women who, like you, look in the mirror every day wishing they could turn back the hands of time. Unfortunately wishing alone will not work! For many, a facelift is not an option due to the cost and recovery it requires.

There is a wonderful alternative that is non-invasive, safe, and is clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance. It’s the New Thermage®. It works on all skin colors and there is little to no downtime. The best part is it only requires one treatment for most patients!

Unfortunately as we age, the collagen in our skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin. We also find that women develop loose skin after pregnancy or weight loss and it is difficult to regain that shape.

Here’s a little science for you. The New Thermage’s unique radiofrequency (RF) technology safely heats the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin, which helps tighten existing collagen and stimulates the formation of new collagen over time. This reduces sagging, renews contours, and improves the smoothness and texture of the skin’s surface. The New Thermage device penetrates twice as deep as the previous device yielding superior results.

We previously used Thermage to treat the eye area only, but with the New Thermage we can effectively target the face, neck, arms, tummy, thighs, and buttocks. Another bonus is that the New Thermage can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Who wouldn’t want that?

   There’s no special care needed after treatment and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.

   I’m glad you reached out to me. So let’s get started and you will be excited to look in the mirror each morning at your new youthful reflection!

Dr. Anne
