Thermage is a targeted and effective procedure designed to rejuvenate your skin, providing the results of a facelift, without the invasive surgery. Thermage is non-invasive, safe and clinically proven to show results after just a single treatment. Thermage immediately begins to tighten skin through increasing collagen production, resulting in healthier, smoother, rejuvenated skin.
How does Thermage work?
Thermage utilises Comfort Pulse Laser technology to heat comfortably the deeper skin tissue to immediately begin increasing collagen production. Collagen is the key to rejuvenated skin and a refreshed youthful appearance. The technology in Thermage enables the heat generated to treat the deep tissue while the cooling effect protects the surface skin and makes the whole treatment not only more comfortable.
Through targeting the Thermage Laser radiofrequency energy, the treatment stimulates and re-energises the body’s natural collagen renewal process. The level of results combined with the non-invasive procedure is two reasons why Thermage is a preferred treatment of the Renu Medispa team. Thermage produces a noticeable and real change that skin lotions and serums cannot replicate.
Is Thermage just for the face?
With Thermage, you can treat the upper and lower eyelids to achieve a more rested and youthful appearance. Hooding, fine lines and a creased brow line can all be targeted to eliminate a worn down looking eye area. On the face tell-tale signs of ageing such as sagging, crêpey skin, loose jowls and jawline can be treated. Through remodelling collagen to improve the overall health of your skin Thermage can smooth lines and wrinkles.
Not just for use on the face, Thermage can be used to achieve the same youthful skin rejuvenation on the body. Unwanted bulges and dimples can be smoothed and the unwanted appearance of cellulite can be temporarily improved.
Why is Thermage known as a lunchtime treatment?
The convenience of Thermage makes it easy to fit into busy lifestyles with minimal downtime. The treatments for the eyes or face can take up to 45 minutes and body treatments up to 90 minutes. Essentially it is a procedure that you could fit into your lunch break and return to work straight after without significantly noticeable evidence of treatment.
Will the heating process hurt?

Will I need time off to recover?
