A perfect solution to your problem is Thermage Deep Contouring. The new Thermage tip is designed to deep contour abdomens, arms, thighs, buttocks and knees. In your case, it will get rid of the bulges, tighten and firm the texture of your knee skin in a single treatment without surgery, injections or downtime.
Results are seen immediately with even more improvement in six months. And they can last up to one year. With the Thermage treatment, you'll be comfortable and confident and ready to show off your great legs.
I've heard that the most recent non-ablative technology is the Body Shaping by Thermage. Can you tell me more about this and explain the term "non-ablative" device?
A non-ablative device is one that does not break or cause visible damage to the skin. That means there's no downtime. There are non-ablative devices used for skin tightening and body contouring such as Thermage. The Thermage procedure uses patented radio-frequency technology to create a precisely controlled zone of heating in the lower part of skin and the underlying tissue. At the same time, the outer part of skin is protected with continual cooling.
The latest advance in Thermage technology is the Thermage Deep Contour tip, which is specifically designed for body sculpting. The new tip delivers a tightening effect more deeply into the thicker dermal layer of the body skin, not only tightening and remodelling collagen, but also eliminating unwanted superficial fat. The results are:
- Tightening and lifting of knees and buttocks;
- Circumferential reductions around the waistline, thighs, hips and arms;
- Flatter and smoother skin on the tummy and legs.
The benefits of the Body Shaping by Thermage procedure are that it is relatively quick, with treatment duration of approximately one to two hours. There is no downtime and no scarring.
Changes can be seen immediately, and progressive improvements are seen up to six months following treatment. However, the results are less than those seen with surgical intervention.
