Thermage | Toronto

Thermage is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that’s FDA-cleared for skin tightening on the face and body. Thermage works by using radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin’s dermis (under the surface layer) and stimulate new collagen production. It’s a versatile treatment that can be used on the stomach, arms, backs of the hands, thighs, knees, and butt as well as around the eyes and along the jawline.

Thermage is offered in our Markham medi spa. 


More About Thermage

Thermage is a radiofrequency facial and body treatment that tightens and lifts the skin by stimulating the formation of collagen and promoting new collagen growth. It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift the skin to smooth out wrinkles, renew facial contours, and treat problem areas on the body.  As we age, the collagen that keeps our skin firm breaks down, which results in fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin. Thermage delivers results after a single non-surgical, and non-invasive treatment with zero downtime. The results will continue to improve over time, which can last up to three years.

“All the sit-ups in the world can’t tighten loose skin, but Thermage can! ”

Bonus: Temporarily helps reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Thermage is offered in our Markham, Toronto, and North York location.

What happens during a thermage procedure

You’ll feel gentle vibration as the device heats the deep layers of your skin, followed by a cooling sensation. The combination of vibration and cooling should help mitigate the discomfort from the heat—but your doctor should keep checking in with you to ensure you get an effective treatment, without too much pain.

Who is thermage suitable for?

The ideal candidate for Thermage skin tightening shows early signs of sagging, along with fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. (Think: upper-eyelid sagging and hooding, crepey skin, crow’s feet, or subtle jowls along the jaw.) It can also address slightly loose skin on the body as well as mild cellulite.

how long does thermage last?

Thermage anti aging procedure results typically last between one and two years. The longevity of your results will depend on your aging process and how well you care for your skin. Some doctors recommend follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months, to maintain your results over time.

It’s also vital to wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 every day and follow a medical-grade skin-care regimen, to keep your skin in its best shape.

What to expect?

  • No downtime
  • A little flushed for the first hour
  • For even more fantastic results, it can be combined with Ultherapy
  • Pros

    • Thermage can treat skin laxity in a single treatment, with no downtime. 
    • It’s a good option for patients with mildly sagging skin.
    • It’s safe for all skin types and tones.


    • Even though the device cools your skin, the heat of the treatment can be painful.

Doctor's Orders

  • Maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months
  • Apply sunscreen every day
  • There’s no downtime afterward, though the treated area may be slightly pink and swollen for a few hours following your session. The redness should go away within 24 hours and shouldn’t hinder your normal activities.

    Swelling usually resolves within five days, though in rare cases it can last a few weeks.
