Thermage® in Nashville, TN

If you notice the tell-tale signs of aging slowly taking over your face or body, and you’re looking for a non-surgical solution, consider Thermage®. Thermage® is an anti-aging laser treatment that tightens loose skin that prematurely ages the face or body. Dr. Morgan Moor of Brentwood is a regenerative medicine doctor and one of the most sought-after Thermage® providers among men and women throughout Nashville, Franklin and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.

What is Thermage®?

Thermage® is one of the most advanced and safest cosmetic procedures that’s been clinically proven to tighten aging skin. The procedure uses radiofrequency energy to penetrate deep into the skin and stimulate and renew the body’s own collagen. Collagen is key to maintaining the suppleness that’s characteristic of young, healthy skin. Increasing the body’s production of collagen is one of the most effective nonsurgical ways to soften fine lines and wrinkles and improve the firmness and texture of aging skin.

Benefits of Thermage®

With Thermage®, people of all skin types can enjoy sleeker, smoother skin with natural-looking results and no surgery. Other benefits of the procedure include:

  • A non-invasive way to combat aging
  • FDA-approved
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Stimulation of your own collagen to restore volume to the skin without fillers
  • 45- to 90-minute treatment sessions

What is Thermage® Used For?

Dr. Moor gets more requests to treat the face with Thermage®, but the procedure is suitable for any area of the body where sagging skin is a concern, including:

  • Eyelids
  • Brow area
  • Jaw line
  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Buttocks

What Should I Expect From Thermage® Treatments?

Thermage® can rejuvenate smaller areas of skin, such as the face, in as little as 45 minutes and larger areas of the body in 90 minutes or less. Makeup or skincare products will be cleansed from the skin right before treatment to ensure that the treatment site is oil-free prior to the procedure. Dr. Moor will then apply the Thermage® device to the skin, and radiofrequency energy will be transmitted to the treatment site. As the radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin, you may feel a mixture of warming sensations and vibrations followed by periods of cooling. Radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen production almost immediately, and the skin responds to the treatment by contracting and tightening as collagen adds volume and elasticity to the underlying layers of the skin.

Mild redness and slight swelling at the treatment site are normal following treatment, but these side effects usually subside within three days.

Some patients experience dramatic, instant results with just a single treatment, but the full results will appear gradually over the course of six months as collagen remodeling and skin tightening continues. For many patients, the results from a single treatment can last as long as 12 months.

What Should my Physician Explain to me About Thermage® Treatments?

More than one million Thermage® treatments have been safely completed worldwide, with most patients experiencing minimal to much discomfort. Some patients are sensitive to the warming/heating sensation of the radiofrequency energy, but it usually doesn’t prevent them from completing the treatment.  Options for reducing pain can be discussed prior to or during treatment.  Due to the nature of Thermage treatment, topical numbing will not be used.
