The Face of Cosmetic Has Changed Thanks to Thermage

Botox treatment

Aging is natural biological process that happens to all living organisms. While some living organisms, such as tortoises or old growth trees, may age a lot slower and live a lot longer than say a fruit fly which only has a life expectancy of roughly 40 days, you can guarantee that eventually, you too will begin showing signs of age.

However, that doesn’t mean you have to age as quickly — or as poorly — as milk. Thanks to a number of technological advances in the health and medical spa industry, you can age just as well — if not better — than fine wine by taking advantage of start of the art deep wrinkle treatments, such as body by thermage.

As an FDA-approved non-surgical procedure, body by thermage uses radio frequency energy in order to smooth, firm, and shape skin, resulting in a younger appearance. This process works by heating the layer of tissue directly below the skin, known as the dermis, which in turn bolsters collagen production.

Similarly, Botox treatments and Juvederm injections are also widely popular non-surgical deep wrinkle treatments that can be used to achieve younger looking skin and features. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing and weakening facial muscles that cause wrinkles, while Juvederm is a filler used to restore lost volume. While injectables such as Botox and Juvederm do not use radio frequency or heat as a means of minimizing signs of aging, their end results are just as noticeable as well as lasting.

Considering the popularity of both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures in today’s modern times, it’s difficult to believe that at one time they were frowned down upon. Even as little as twenty years ago, very few men would even consider the possibility of undergoing any kind of cosmetic procedure.

While the vast majority of those who undergo both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures is still women, more and men are using cosmetic procedures to achieve a more youthful appearance.
