Cellulite and Body Shaping

Thermage Body is a non-invasive procedure that tightens, firms and shapes the body without surgery or injections. Cellulite smoothes out on the buttocks and thighs. Arms tighten up. Post-baby tummies firm up. Inches are lost on thighs, hips and waists. There is no downtime so you can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. Only one treatment is typically needed, taking approximately 1-2 hours. Patients can expect to see mild to moderate skin tightening and lifting, circumferential reduction of body areas, and flatter, smoother skin.
The latest upgrade to the popular, non-invasive Thermage Body is the 16cm treatment tip. The new tip improves patient comfort, offers results in half the time and is ideal for patients who are not significantly overweight but want deep tightening of sagging skin and reduction of cellulite or unwanted bulges.
The Thermage 16.0 tip design is unique because it heats 79 percent deeper than the original Thermage. Increased collagen tightening in the subcutaneous layer of the skin of abdomen, “love handles,” thighs, buttocks, knees and arms delivers better results. It safely heats the skin’s under-layer and the web of collagen in the inner-layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. Improvements to the skin continue and become even more noticeable by months following treatments as new collagen grows.
“Enhancing the patient experience is my number one priority,” states Susan Van Dyke, M.D. “The new Thermage tip reduces the time necessary to achieve optimal body tightening, significantly benefits our patients and adds to our ability to provide the best treatments that yield the best and safest results.”
