——- Jenny, a real-life, illustrated version of Toronto’s medical beauty expert
Hello, I am Jenny, the renowned medical beauty expert from Toronto. Known as the “bravest medical beauty guinea pig” in the Chinese community in Toronto, I have been asked a lot of questions about Thermage, so today in this article I will give you a clear explanation. I’ve been doing Thermage in Toronto for 7 to 8 years and will tell you all about Thermage in Toronto from my personal experience!
1. What is Thermage？
As we age, our collagen, which is responsible for keeping the skin firm, breaks down, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Thermage Toronto treatment uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep collagen-rich layers of the skin, applying heat to search for collagen and promote new collagen growth. The treatment helps to smoothen the skin and to continuously improve its condition afterwards.
2. How much does Thermage Toronto cost?
The reason why Thermage Toronto has been so popular since its inception is that the results are really amazing and are definitely hard to beat by using skin care products that cost a few hundred Canadian dollars. The price of Thermage is about $3000 Canadian per treatment, so, based on an average maintenance time of 1.5 years, it works out at only $5 Canadian a day. This is equivalent to eating one less packet of potato chips every day in return for more than a year of tighter skin, that’s not too bad a deal!

3. The history of Thermage
Thermage was not originally invented for anti-aging purposes. Scientists found that Thermage could kill most of the Propionibacterium acnes around the round follicles with its deep heating effect, and at the same time stimulated fibroblasts to produce collagen and elastic fibers, which then played a significant role in repairing acne pits.
Later on, it was gradually discovered that Thermage was very powerful in stimulating the skin to produce collagen on its own, which tightened the skin, improved wrinkles and enhanced the skin’s condition, so Thermage progressively developed in this direction.
Thermage has constantly been developed and enhanced right up to the present day. The latest generation of Thermage V has a smart upgraded probe, and the probe area has changed from 3 square centimeters in the fourth generation to 4 square centimeters, an increase in probe area of about 33%. According to an official statement, the difference compared to the 4th generation is that AccuREPTM ultra-smart technology has been introduced, which adjusts the parameters so as to automatically match the skin, thus emitting even more energy, giving a more uniform treatment and making the process more comfortable. According to the U.S. partners who have been using generation 5, for unskilled technicians, the pain level of customers has been reduced, but there is no great difference in the effect on the skin.
4. Will Thermage puncture or burn my skin? Or is Thermage painful?
Many people asked that is thermage Toronto painful. Don’t worry, the heating temperature of Thermage is around 40 to 55 degrees Celsius. It is very safe, and a professional medical clinic with skilled technicians will not burn your skin. Thermage was originally mainly used on the face, around the eyes and neck. Now it is also used on other parts of the body, such as the chest, abdomen, thighs and other areas.
Thermage, as a maintenance-type of medical aesthetic program is very suitable for anti-aging, and it has already had FDA certification for a long time, and the fourth generation is now widely used (although the very rich can consider using the fifth generation of Thermage FLX!). These programs use very mature technology, and as long as you find a skilled technician, you can rest assured completely when using it.
Nevertheless, in order to be cautious, we should still have a detailed understanding of Thermage, especially all aspects of Thermage Toronto, so, bookmark this article and forward it to your fellow beauty explorers who have the same needs! If you have any questions about Thermage or other medical beauty programs, please feel free to write to me and ask away, I will answer in detail for you in my blog.

6. The principle of Thermage
Thermage Toronto uses the principle of radio frequency, which produces a high frequency conversion electromagnetic field in the treatment area of the skin, so that the water molecules in the skin vibrate at high frequency and rotate at high speed, generating heat. When a certain temperature is reached, it causes the collagen fibers to contract and regenerate, thus achieving the skin tightening, lifting and anti-wrinkle effects.
To put it figuratively, it’s just like when we grill meat, the part that is heated will shrink. After the dermis of our underlying layer is slightly tightened, it brings about the natural tightening and lifting of the skin on the outside.

9. How many times do I need to do Thermage Toronto?
Thermage wrinkle skin tightening will have an obvious effect after a single session, with about 10% to 20% effect on the same day, and many customers noted that the half of their face that had received the treatment was obviously smaller than the other side which had not been done.
However, for those who are over 60 years old and have serious sagging skin and poor skin quality, they may need to go through Thermage treatment several times. Normally, the effect of Thermage can be maintained for 1.5 to 2 years each time.
10. How long can Thermage effect be maintained for?
The effect of Thermage can be maintained for 1.5 to 2 years depending on the individual’s body type, skin condition, lifestyle, skin care regime, etc.
After Thermage treatment, you can see the immediate tightening effect, and along with the regeneration of your own collagen, this continuous tightening feeling will continue for about 3 to 6 months before reaching the best state.
11. Can Thermage & Ultherapy be done together?
Thermage and Ultherapy can be done together, and the combination of the two can be called the ultimate anti-aging combination.
Ultherapy and Thermage are both anti-aging auxiliary treatments, with their own advantages. When it comes to the selection, it is more important to decide according to the specific situation of the candidates themselves. As both can effectively be combined, they can complement each other’s advantages.
Ultherapy treatment level is deeper and more precise so as to avoid the nerve-rich areas when designing and drawing lines, so it is mostly concentrated on the soft tissue-rich areas, which act on the fascial layer that cannot be reached by Thermage, so the skin tightening and lifting effect is stronger.
Thermage Toronto, on the other hand, can treat small nerve-rich areas that cannot be covered by Ultherapy, such as around the eyes and in the area of smile lines.
The combination of the two is the ultimate anti-aging treatment!
