Firming and Tightening for Face and Body

Request a consultation



As you age, your skin begins to lose its natural elasticity because collagen and elastin are breaking down faster than your body can rebuild them. As a result, you get loose or sagging skin around your face and body. You’ll begin to notice that your jawline isn’t as defined as it once was or that the skin on your neck has become droopy. If you’ve given birth, you may also see that the skin on your abdominal area isn’t as tight before pregnancy.

APT Medical Aesthetics is pleased to offer Thermage® in Oakville, an effective but non-surgical and non-invasive solution to lift and tighten your skin. It’s a revolutionary body sculpting cosmetic treatment that can take years off of you with just one treatment.

What It Is 

Thermage® uses focused radio-frequency technology to deliver heat deep into the skin in order to strengthen collagen and stimulate the production of new collagen. Over time, you will notice further smoothing and tightening of your skin along with more definition in the contours of the treated area.

Thermage® Oakville treatment works wonders in:

  • Tightening and smoothing skin
  • Improving sagging jowls
  • Eliminating fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing deep scowl lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines
  • Defining the jawline and cheekbones
  • Enhancing the crepey skin around the knees and elbows
  • Firming up loose skin in the abdomen and legs

It’s an innovative lunchtime treatment that delivers astonishing results immediately. If you’re looking forward to rocking out form-fitting clothes and restoring your youthful facial features but not yet an ideal candidate for plastic surgery or not ready for dermal fillers and Botox injections, Thermage is an excellent procedure.

Treatment Areas 

Thermage® can be performed safely in most areas of the body, including face, neck, eyes, tummy, hands, thighs and buttocks.

How to Prepare 

On the day of your Thermage Oakville appointment, your aesthetician will ask you to remove any metal jewelry, such as earrings, watch, or necklace. If you are fitted with a pacemaker or metal implants in the body for medical reasons, please tell your doctor during the initial consultation so you may be advised accordingly. 

Hydrate your body inside and out by drinking plenty of water at least a week before your treatment. Apply hydrating and moisturizing skin care products to the treatment site to maximize the benefits of your treatment. 

How It Works 

Our Thermage Oakville treatment takes 45 to 90 minutes on average, depending on the scope of areas being treated. 

Here are some things that you expect during treatment. For starters, our aesthetician will clean and prep the treatment site. A temporary grid will be applied to the skin to ensure uniform or even treatment. It will be followed by a light gel applied to your skin before a series of pulses are delivered. 

Each time the treatment device touches your skin, you will feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heat sensation and then by another cooling sensation. The heat is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for collagen remodelling. Your technician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results.

At APT, we offer Thermage® CPT (Comfort Pulse Technology™) – the latest generation of Thermage®. This technology adds gentle vibration and random cooling bursts to provide even more comfort during the treatment.

Results You Can Expect 

Unlike other procedures, Thermage® promises to deliver noticeable results after a single treatment for most patients. After your first session, you’ll see a subtle improvement when comparing your before and after Thermage photos. 

But it gets even better. The final results will start becoming more evident after three to six months. Expect to see further enhancements in the treatment area gradually becoming more visible as the body’s natural collagen-building process reaches its completion. You may see a fresher appearance, with improved texture and more defined contours. 

Thermage Oakville’s attractive results can last for a significantly long time, depending on your skin condition, lifestyle, and how well you take care of your skin. We recommend our patients to practice good skincare habits, which involves the religious application of broad-spectrum sunscreen and vitamin C serums. Taking 1000mg of oral vitamin C has also been linked to boosting the body’s ability to produce collagen.

Aftercare and Recovery 

The skin on the treated area may appear slightly red or swollen immediately after the procedure. Don’t worry. It typically resolves on its own within 24 hours. Most patients resume regular activities immediately after the treatment. There is no recovery or special follow-up care required; however, we do recommend appropriate skin care and use of a daily sunscreen of at least SPF 30.

Potential Complications 

Thermage® Oakville treatment has a proven history of being safe and effective. There are rare instances, if any, of patients reacting negatively to the procedure. But as with any medical treatment, there are potential risks and side effects involved, which may include but is not limited to the following:

  • Redness 
  • Swelling
  • Bruising  
  • Soreness 
  • Tingling or burning sensation
  • Irregular results in the treatment area

Most of these side effects are mild, uncommon, and clear up on their own. Your aesthetic doctor will discuss any complications or contraindications during the initial consultation to help you make an informed decision.
