What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting® is an innovative non-surgical fat reduction technique that can be used to significantly re-contour the body while getting rid of unwanted fat deposits. It is one of the most commonly performed non-surgical fat reduction procedures in the world. To date, more than 6 million CoolSculpting treatments have been performed worldwide. The procedure can help both women and men eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts, including diet and exercise. Ideally, candidates are no more than 20 pounds over their ideal body weight. Remember, unlike weight loss surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are afflicted with obesity.

Thermage for tightening is a non-invasive treatment that stimulates the production of the skin’s own collagen. The result is tighter and firmer skin on the treated area. This is an excellent treatment for contouring and tightening; in fact, many people find that having a Thermage treatment allows them to put off the facelift they may have been considering. Thermage is used to treat both the face and body, allowing for tightening and contouring on the face, and tightening and improvement of skin texture on the body. A single treatment is all that is necessary for very long-lasting improvement.
How Does Thermage Work?
Thermage works by sending radiofrequency energy through the skin’s surface to stimulate healthy collagen production in the skin. By stimulating collagen production, the skin’s texture is not only improved, but the skin is tauter and healthier; this leads to much more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. There is no surgery or invasive component for this treatment, meaning that there are no surgical scars left behind or downtime to plan for after Thermage.
What Areas are Treated with Thermage?
Thermage is a unique cosmetic treatment in that it can be performed on many areas of the face and body. Thermage treatment of the face helps to decrease the appearance of heavy jowls, tighten lax skin on the face and neck, and improve the natural contouring of the face. Thermage treatment of the face can also be used to target the eyes specifically; treatment improves the appearance of fine lines around the eyes and can lift heavy brows that can otherwise lead to a tired appearance. One Thermage tightening treatment delivers dramatic tightening and contouring, which lasts for years after a single treatment.
Thermage for Body
In addition to the face and neck, Thermage can also be used to improve the appearance of the body, such as the appearance of loose skin on the abdomen (this is an extremely popular treatment for women after childbirth), decrease the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks, tighten loose skin above the knees, and improve the appearance of upper arms by improving the texture of the skin in this area.
