Thermage (also known as Thermacool/Thermalift) is a radio frequency device developed by Thermage, Inc. This device uses a new form of delivery of radio frequency energy so that the energy is transmitted through larger areas of the skin. During delivery of this radio frequency pulse the upper layer of the skin - the epidermis - is protected by cool cryogen spray. Thus, the radio frequency energy can heat deeper tissue without inducing a superficial skin burn. This controlled heating of deeper layers of skin and other tissue causes skin contraction and tightening and is referred to as volumetric tissue heating. An immediate effect of volumetric tissue heating is collagen contraction or shrinkage. A secondary or later effect is collagen remodeling and production of new collagen as well as continued tightening over time as the skin heals.
