Thermage – Younger and Tighter Skin, Without Incisions, Injections or Abrasion

Skin rejuvenation with radiofrequency waves gives a fresher, younger appearance: lifting without incisions, skin abrasion or injections.

Since 2004, our dermatologists at Rosenpark Klinik have successfully used the gentle method for skin rejuvenation: the ThermaCool system from Thermage®, known simply as Thermage. It is suitable for patients aged 35 to approximately 60 years.

How does Thermage work?

Thermage uses the stimulating effect of monopolar radiofrequency waves. In deeper layers of skin, it works in two ways:

  • During the treatment itself, the heated collagen fibers contract – about ten percent of treated patients demonstrate a tightening effect that is immediately visible
  • They stimulate the new formation of collagen: Over the next four months, the skin develops visible tightening from within.

The desired effect can be seen directly after the first treatment. As needed, it can be repeated annually.

What does Thermage do?


  • Improves skin texture and skin tone throughout the face
  • Refines facial contours
  • Tightens loose cheeks and chin
  • Contours the chin line
  • Gives eyes new radiance
  • Reduces hooded eyelids and minor wrinkles
  • Smooths crow's feet
  • Tightens the skin of the eyelids and around the entire eye
  • Also achieves good results on the neck and decolleté
  • Can also be used to tighten skin on the abdomen, inner leg and inner side of the lower arm

How is it administered?

A special handpiece emits controlled amounts of monopolar radiofrequency waves on the skin. In order for it to take effect in deeper layers, the surface is cooled with a spray.

When can I resume normal daily activities?

Depending on the size of the surface, the treatment lasts 30 minutes to two hours. Then you can resume normal activities without any limitations, you don´t even have to avoid sunlight. Final results of the treatmet can be seen after two to three months.
