WHY AT MONA DERMATOLOGY?

WHAT TO EXPECT
Remove all eye makeup & remove contact lenses if you wear them.
Our nurses will take pictures prior to your treatment. Your provider will place a plastic eye shield in your eye to protect it from the radiofrequency. You will feel a warm sensation to the skin as the radiofrequency energy is delivered.
You may have some mild swelling or redness but this should go away within a few hours. Most patients return to their normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
THERMAGE® FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES THERMAGE® WORK?
The Collagen in your dermis and subcutaneous tissue is a protein that keeps your skin youthful and tight. As you age and get more sun exposure, that collagen simply breaks down faster than your body can rebuild it. There are many tightening treatments that operate by heating the inner layers of skin. Unlike laser treatments and other technologies that heat the superficial skin layers, Thermage CPT uses unique Radiofrequency (RF) technology to reach deep into the dermis and subcutaneous tissue to cause tightening in the layers that matter most. This deep heating stimulates your body’s natural skin renewal process, which helps tighten existing collagen and form new collagen. Over time, sagging or wrinkled skin is replaced with smoother, tighter skin, improved tone and texture and an overall younger looking appearance. Thermage CPT can be used on all skin colors, on the face as well as on the body
HOW LONG WILL THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
Treating the area of your eyes with Thermage® usually takes 30-45 minutes. When combined with the 4 Your Eyes Package, you should plan on spending 1 hour with us.
DOES THERMAGE® HURT?
You will experience no to mild discomfort with the Thermage eye treatment. Comfort levels vary from patient to patient, but most people find this a comfortable procedure.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?

IS THERMAGE® SAFE?
This is a safe and effective procedure for most people with no downtime.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
If you have mild to moderate hooding of the upper eyelids, fine lines and crepiness of the lower eyelids Thermage® may be a good treatment for you. As always, our trained providers will be able to best discuss your options at a consultation. Thermage® is a good treatment for all skin types and does not prohibit if you have had sun exposure.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS & HOW LONG WILL THEY LAST?
Results are gradual but can be seen as early as 1-3 months after the treatment. As you continue to age, you may want to repeat the procedure for further tightening every 2-3 years.
