The Causes of Aging Skin

The causes of aging skin are two-fold. First, skin cell regeneration slows down as we get older. Dead skin cells start building up on the surface, causing a dull complexion; scars take longer to heal, causing uneven skin texture; and sun damage isn’t corrected as quickly, resulting in uneven skin tone. Second, collagen and elastin production slow down, making the skin appear less plump (collagen), so the face develops wrinkles, folds, and hollow areas; and less elastic (elastin), so the skin starts to sag.

ThemaFrax combo treatment in Scottsdale is reversing the process. The visible damage caused by the slowing of our bodies’ ability to heal itself and regenerate youthful building blocks can be dramatic, if we let it. But we have numerous tools in our anti-aging toolbox to halt this damage in its tracks. This includes Thermafrax.

How Thermafrax Combats the Signs of Aging

Thermage and Fraxel can be used individually, depending on your needs. Each requires a series of treatments to see full results.

The Thermafrax Combination

With ThermaFrax combo treatment, we combine these two proven anti-aging technologies to target and treat multiple signs of aging.

First, we perform Thermage on the affected area to stimulate skin tightening and collagen production. Following the treatment, Fraxel is immediately performed to trigger skin cell turnover and healing. We will then perform two more rounds of Fraxel, each spaced out one month apart.

Following your completed ThermaFrax series, you will begin to see gradual improvements in your skin’s tightness, texture, and color. Scars and fine lines will diminish, as will the signs of sun damage and other skin pigmentation irregularities. After ThermaFrax combo treatment in Scottsdale, your pores will also appear tighter, and facial laxity around the eyes and along the jawline will be improved.

Thermage for Skin Tightening and Plumping

Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate and tighten three layers of skin, providing consistent results and long-term anti-aging. By stimulating collagen production beneath the skin, the skin isn’t just tightened, it’s rejuvenated as the collagen growth helps restore youthful fullness.

Complementing Thermafrax With Other Treatments

Some patients benefit from adding fillers to their treatment protocol following their completed ThermaFrax combo treatment. Fillers can help stimulate more collagen production, and some will even reintroduce hyaluronic acid. Like collagen, hyaluronic acid diminishes as we age, contributing to thinning lips and facial hollowness, folds, and wrinkles. As always, we recommend routine facials, daily sun protection, and a solid home skincare routine with products proven to work with your skin type and anti-aging goals.
