In recent years newer technology has evolved to allow patients to address the issue of saggy skin without having to go under the knife. Methods such as Thermage have become increasingly popular. The Thermage procedure was developed a few years ago and dubbed the lunchtime facelift! This procedure utilizes monopolar radio frequency waves and is completed within an hour without the use of needles, instruments, and with minimal discomfort.
Vellashape is another technique used for tightening which is non-surgical. Vellashape gives good results in selected patients. The difference between vella and thermage is that vella is done in sessions whereas thermage is a onetime deal which can be repeated for better results!
