Thermage and Accent Tissue Tightening
By heating up the collagen under the top layer of our skin, we can stimulate fibroblasts to make more collagen which then leads to skin tightening and improved texture. There are several competing modalities on the market now but Thermage was the first to develop the technology. We have had good success using Thermage to help tighten the jowls, neck, and lift the forehead. We typically advise doing this procedure once every 2 years to help slow down the aging clock. www.thermage.com
Accent skin tighteningRecently approved Accent competes with Thermage due to its ease of use and increased patient comfort during the procedure. We advise patients to do a treatment every 3 weeks for a total of 6 treatments to obtain maximal improvement. If there is a persistent problem area, we may need to do additional treatments. Accent feels like having a hot stone massaging facial. We can also use the technology on other body parts, including cellulite prone areas. www.accentyourbody.com
