The Ultimate Combination: ThermaFrax Skin Rejuvenation
Wrinkles, sagging, hollowness, and dull skin are all hallmarks of an aging face. But what causes this and how can we work to bring back youthful vibrance? Thankfully, non-surgical treatment options are numerous. One such solution is our combination therapy that brings the laser rejuvenation benefits of Fraxel together with the non-surgical radiofrequency skin tightening technology of Thermage. We call it Thermafrax, and it could be the solution you're looking for to combat the signs of aging.
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.
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 and reverse it. 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.
Fraxel for Laser Skin Resurfacing and Regeneration
Fraxel is a fractionated laser technology that allows providers to target specific areas for treatment while also giving deep, penetrable results. As the laser effectively removes the dead skin and stimulates skin cell turnover more rapidly, the signs of aging are diminished. Dull skin appears more vibrant, fine lines fade, and hyperpigmentation is also corrected. Scars can also be effectively treated using Fraxel.
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.
The Thermafrax Combination
With Thermafrax, 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. Your pores will also appear tighter, and facial laxity around the eyes and along the jawline will be improved.
Complementing Thermafrax With Other Treatments
Some patients benefit from adding fillers to their treatment protocol following their completed Thermafrax series. 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 skin care routine with products proven to work with your skin type and anti-aging goals.
