Reverse Facial Aging and Tighten Skin with Thermage

 Understanding Facial Aging  Facial aging process begins with the surface and subsurface structural changes. Therefore it affects multiple facial tissue layers, including skin, fat, muscle and bone. These tissue layers age interdependently, contributing to the overall facial appearance that is obvious on the outside. With age, skin undergoes several changes, which include: sagging skin, shrinkage of fat, muscle and bone. Collagen loss is a key factor in the aging process. As skin ages, the middle layer of skin (dermis) thins due to collagen loss. This reduces the skin’s ability to retain elasticity (from elastin ) and moisture (from hyaluronic acid).     What happens when skin ages? 1.Drier skin 2.Thinner skin 3.Less elastic skin 4.Skin more likely to wrinkle or sag 5.Reduction in collagen   The first tissue tightening treatment was addressed 15yrs ago with CO2 laser surgery. The term ‘tightening” describes gross contouring
