Thermage Treatment in Perth
Thermage is a safe, non-invasive, skin tightening procedure that’s clinically proven to help smooth wrinkles in the skin for an overall younger looking appearance – and is available at Absolute Cosmetic Medicine in Perth, WA.
A hand piece with a smooth, flat tip delivers radiofrequency (RF) technology, which safely heats the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin. The heat helps stimulate the formation of new collagen over time, which can reduce sagging, and improve the smoothness and texture of the skin’s surface.
The treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime – on all skin colors, on and off the face, all in a single procedure. Since there is no surgery involved you can generally return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.
Thermage treatment times average about 45 minutes.

Does it hurt & what is the downtime?
Each time the treatment device touches your skin, you’ll feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for smoothing wrinkles, while the cooling sensation protects the surface of your skin. Throughout the procedure, your physician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results.
We offer Thermage CPT®, which stands for Comfort Pulse TechnologyTM. These treatments incorporate vibration, which has been shown to significantly improve patient comfort.
Thermage procedures are offered by over 2500 physicians in more than 80 countries and have an excellent safety record. Of course, as with any procedure there’s always some risk. Our staff will discuss those with you during your consultation. Side effects are generally mild and may include redness, swelling, blisters, bumps and rare instances of surface irregularities.
There is little to no down-time following the procedure, and you can continue with regular activity straight away. Always limit your sun exposure for 30 days before and after your skin tightening treatment.
