Every day we are asked if there is an age that is “too early” to start preventing the skin from aging or to start on the journey for skin rejuvenation. We have been thinking about this question for years and in fact were the first to introduce and coin the term “prejuvenation,” a buzz word that has since taken off on a journey of its own.

What exactly is “prejuvenation?” “Prejuvenation” is the act of initiating a series of thoughtfully planned steps that will prevent or impede the changes associated … Continue reading »

ThermiRF uses the principle of radiofrequency skin tightening to create natural results. A local anesthesia is injected under the skin, and then a thin probe is inserted through a small needle hole. The physician maneuvers the probe to areas that he or she wants to … Continue reading »
Thermage has been used for over a decade to tighten skin of the lower face and jaw line, producing a more youthful and natural look. Now scientists have discovered that Thermage can also prevent aging. Based on experience with patients treated every one to two years, we have observed that those patients appear to age more slowly than those who have Thermage only once every 4 to 5 years, or don’t have any treatment at all. We know that patients start to appear older at 5 to 10 year increments, which was the original theory behind the timing between Thermage … Continue reading »
