In the quest for a solution to combat visible signs of ageing skin like sagging, fine lines, wrinkles, most patients seek a non-surgical option to reclaim the firmness and vitality of their skin. Thermage offers a safe and effective skin-tightening treatment. 

Thermage uses radiofrequency energy that heats up deeper layers of the skin. These are collagen-rich layers that lie beneath the surface layers of our skin. As a result, it stimulates continuous collagen production and tightens the existing fibrous collagen strands, leading to firmer and smoother skin over time.

Thermage reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin for an overall younger-looking appearance without requiring invasive procedures.

Benefits of Thermage Treatment in Singapore

Thermage treatment, a non-invasive treatment, rejuvenates the skin by stimulating collagen production that repairs skin damage and tightens skin to improve skin elasticity and texture, addressing loose skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin.

Repair of premature aging and fine lines 

Thermage treatment is a standout option for addressing skin issues such as crepey and sagging skin. Thermage technology encourages repair and renewal processes, which reverses signs of premature skin aging and laxity. Thermage treatment is suitable for those with mild to moderate skin laxity who wish to achieve skin tightening and firming. It works well to improve the appearance of static wrinkles and fine lines on the skin surface. 

Improved Skin Texture & Elasticity

Thermage uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin’s deeper layers, effectively tightening existing collagen and encouraging new collagen growth. Over time, as the skin’s underlying structures rebuild and strengthen, you’ll begin to notice a significant improvement in skin elasticity and texture, leading to a more youthful and radiant appearance that continually improves over time.

Non-Surgical Treatment

Thermage is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that requires no incisions or injections. It’s a great option for those seeking effective anti-ageing skin solutions without the commitments or complications of surgery.

What to Expect During a Thermage Treatment in Singapore


The consultation process is the first step in your Thermage treatment journey in Singapore. At Lux, you’ll meet with our doctor, who will guide you through the entire process. The consultation starts with a thorough discussion of your treatment goals, assessment of your skin’s condition and suitability for the Thermage treatment. This includes evaluating skin elasticity, texture, and any areas that may benefit from the treatment. 

During the consultation, it’s the best time for you to ask questions and gain a deeper understanding of the Thermage procedure, including what to expect during and after the treatment. 

Is There a Special Preparation or Follow-Up Regime Needed for Thermage? Prior to the treatment, ensure that you have not had any recent acid peels or sunburn over the area to be treated. The Thermage treatment typically has little to no downtime. Depending on your condition, typically only 1 treatment session is required every 9-12 months. 

Is the Thermage Procedure Safe? Yes! Thermage is a safe and non-invasive FDA-approved treatment that typically does not affect the surface layer of the skin. Although rare, some may experience slight redness and swelling after the procedure but this is usually minimal and resolves in a couple of hours.  

Can Thermage be used to treat acne scars? No, Thermage cannot be used to treat acne scars. Please refer to our acne scar treatment for details on how to treat acne scars.

The Procedure

Initially, treatment areas will be cleaned to remove any excess makeup product. 

What Makes the Thermage Procedure More Comfortable?  Numbing cream is applied to the area of treatment for the patient’s comfort. Some patients prefer oral analgesics in addition to the cream.

Grid markings will be applied as a guide for the Thermage application. The device will be pressed against the area to emit radiofrequency (RF) energy deep into the skin. 

What Does the Thermage Procedure Feel Like? You will  feel a deep heating sensation as the applied heat reaches the deep layers of the skin. This is a brief heating sensation followed by a quick cooling sensation to minimise discomfort and protect the top most layer of skin.

How Many Sessions Will I Need for My Thermage Treatment in Singapore? A single treatment is enough for improvements that last over a year. Maintenance sessions are recommended every 9-12 months.



Following the procedure, patients might experience mild redness or swelling in the area, which typically subsides within 24 hours. Here are some aftercare recommendations to ensure you achieve the best possible results:

  • Keep your body well-hydrated to help maintain skin elasticity and promote healing.
  • Use sunscreen (SPF of 50 or higher) as part of your normal daily routine.
  • Use mild, non-irritating skincare products to avoid additional stress in the treated areas.
  • Check with your doctor before undergoing other facial treatments just prior to, or after the Thermage procedure.

Minimal Downtime

Is There Any Downtime Required for Recovery? Thermage treatment has minimal downtime, allowing individuals to return to their daily activities almost right after the procedure.

Who is a Good Candidate for Thermage?

Thermage® is specifically designed to address:

  • Wrinkled skin
  • Skin sagging
  • Uneven Skin Texture

What Are the Indications for This Treatment? Apart from treating loose skin and wrinkles, it is also useful for post-pregnancy or post-weight loss skin tightening. Thermage® is ideal for individuals experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity and signs of ageing.

Is Thermage Suitable for All Skin Types? Yes, as it targets deeper layers of the skin without harming its surface.

However, it may not be suitable for:

  • Pregnant women
  • Individuals with implantable devices or pacemakers
  • Those with certain skin infections or diseases
  • People with severe skin conditions in the area to be treated

It is important to undergo a consultation to receive a personalised evaluation.

Can Thermage Treatment in Singapore Be Carried Out in Areas That Have Undergone Laser Treatments? Yes. However, it is recommended to wait for your skin to fully heal  (depending on the type of laser done) before undergoing a Thermage treatment.

Thermage Results and Recovery

Thermage offers a gradual improvement in skin appearance by harnessing the body’s own collagen-producing mechanisms, which naturally takes time. 

Are There Any Side Effects with This Treatment? Some patients might feel mild swelling or redness that usually resolves within a day or two.

How soon will I see Thermage results? Some patients might notice subtle enhancements just after one treatment, but the full effect is evident over the next few weeks and will continue to improve over 3-6months.

How Long Does the Effects from Thermage Last? With proper sun protection and skin care, the results of Thermage can last up to one to two years, depending on the individual’s skin condition and ageing process. 

Will My Skin Look ‘Natural’ after Thermage? Yes. Thermage reverses the signs of ageing but does not alter your facial features for natural-looking results.

Thermage Body Treatments

Thermage encourages the production of collagen that remodels and firms skin, resulting in tighter skin. This is beneficial in the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks.

Thermage Eye Treatment

Some patients may experience upper eyelid sagging, which Thermage can treat. This treatment is tolerable, lifts eyelids, and reduces fine lines for a younger-looking, fresher appearance.

Things to note before coming for your eye thermage treatment

Try to avoid wearing contact lenses when coming to the clinic for the procedure. The Eye Thermage procedure involves the use of numbing eye drops. Post procedure, the eyes may still feel slightly numb and wearing of contact lenses is not recommended. If necessary, it is recommended to wear glasses for the next few hours, until the numbing wears off.

How does the doctor determine the specific settings for the Thermage device to ensure optimal results for each patient’s skin condition? The power will be adjusted according to each individual’s skin reaction to the treatment as well as the patient’s comfort level. At every treatment session, our aim is always to maximise treatment results while keeping patients as comfortable as possible.
