Thermage - It's All New

Aug 13th, 2014 In: Anti-Aging, General

New Thermage for Eyes, Face and Body

Take Control of Your Aging Skin

Aging affects us all – the way we act, the way we feel, and definitely the way we look. But with advancements in skin care, you can have a say in the way aging affects your skin – and maybe even get back to the way you looked not so long ago. Thermage® is a proven, unique radio frequency treatment that can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving you a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. Thermage® works in just one treatment with little down time and delivers a natural looking result. It's you, just younger looking and more confident.

Thermage is effective on:

The Eyes

As you age, your skin's collagen and elastin simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them, causing your skin to lose elasticity—which often leads to wrinkles, and pockets of loose, sagging skin. The effects of age are typically most noticeable around the eyes, where skin is delicate and thin. Over time it will start to lose elasticity, beginning to droop and wrinkle, even creating heavy "hoods" that make you look older.

The Face

As we age, phrases like "turkey neck", loose jowls, sagging skin and "what happened to my jawline?" creep in. And after a lifetime of laughing, smiling, furrowing brows or lighting up in surprise, the skin on your face can really show the signs of aging. Your face is also the area of your skin most exposed to the elements, bearing the brunt of environmental factors like sun damage. Over time, the smooth, sleek look you once had breaks down, becoming uneven, and lined with wrinkles. Your features lose definition – especially in the jawline, lips and neck. Thermage smooths lines and wrinkles and remodels collagen for the overall health of the skin.

The Body

Skin is our bodies' largest organ, adapting everywhere to the changes in your shape, activities and lifestyle. As we age, our skin's resiliency and elasticity decreases – especially after major life events like childbirth – and sometimes never returns to that smooth skin feeling. For most people, age brings with it areas of uneven or unsightly bulges and dimples hat just can't be remedied with exercise or diet. It's skin – not fat – that often gets in the way of achieving the youthful look we all desire. Thermage is a non-invasive way to smooth the skin on our bodies and even temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite.

How Thermage Treatments Fit

Thermage is for when you want to tackle the effects of aging on your skin. You want to look younger and you want real results – but don't want the overly drastic change or extended downtime that comes with surgery. Thermage fits into any lifestyle and your current beauty regimen:

  • A single treatment that delivers results
  • Non-invasive and clinically proven to be safe
  • Minimal downtime, so it's easy to fit into your routine
  • Real change you just can't get from lotions and creams
  • Targeted, effective treatment that can help address the signs of aging on many areas of the body

How it Works, What it Does

Thermage is a proven radio frequency treatment that transforms skin by working below the surface and addresses a wide range of surface imperfections that result from age and environmental factors. Benefits include the smoothing of wrinkly or uneven skin, better definition of facial features around the eyes, jaw and neckline, and even the smoothing and toning of unsightly bulges, dimples and wrinkles on the face and body. Thermage radio frequency energy works with your body, remodeling your collagen to help your skin get that smooth feel and youthful look you want. Thermage treats targeted problem areas – so the results are focused and effective.

Trust the Expert

Dr. Anne White was one of the first cosmetic surgeons in the Southeast to offer Thermage for her patients. We have performed literally hundreds of Thermage treatments for our patients since its introduction in 2003. We are pleased that physicians and their staffs from North Carolina and from various parts of the US have recognized our expertise in the Thermage procedure, and have visited Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center to study our techniques, and to learn our systems and procedures. Dr. White is one of the few physicians in the North Carolina to have completed all advanced courses and been certified by the Thermage company.

Dr. White's pets, Scott and Ollie, were featured in the Precious Pets column in the August 2013 edition of Buena Vista Life.

Things don't always go as planned when it comes to pets. In the case of Buena Vista's "Scout" and "Ollie," that's certainly the case. When Dr. Anne L. White's son, Ben, left for college, Scout went along as his roommate; and when they returned back to school after break, Scout decided to stay behind with Mom. She let him have his way. As Dr. White puts it, "They aren't spoiled. They just have me very well trained."

These spirited Beagle boys are not really pets at all, they're family. What's special about them? "Just look at them! They're precious!" beamed... Read more
