[Review] – Thermage TOTAL TIP, My Yearly Skin Tightening Treatment


Woof! Time really flies doesn’t it? Can’t believe I’m already in my late 40s this 2015. I must say I’m terrified of looking old.

I can’t deny aging is inevitable. Unlike most of my peers who prefer botox as the quick fix to look younger, I prefer a treatment that can boost my skin’s natural production of collagen to help turn back the clock.

The ultimate beauty treatment that has proven to stimulate my collagen production and take years off my face is THERMAGE! It is a safe and proven procedure that not only firms up my sagging skin, it also gives reliable results with minimal to almost no downtime. It effectively increases collagen production and it gives a long-lasting result! I’ve tried all the generations of Thermage before and I must say the latest Thermage TOTAL TIP 3.0 works the best.

About seven weeks ago, I have done my second Thermage TOTAL TIP 3.0 procedure, performed by Dr Israr Wong at Knightsbridge Clinic located at 277A South Bridge Road. My first Thermage TOTAL TIP procedure was done a year ago. It shows amazing results and is my savior to reverse the signs of aging! Thermage has now become my MUST-HAVE yearly maintenance regimen!

Thermage Total Tip 3.0 is a new and improved tip designed for the use on the face, neck and body that aims to deliver as much as twice the bulk heating volume which allows more tissue to be heated to higher temperatures, hence delivering greater results.

A proven, unique radiofrequency treatment, Thermage can help improve the appearance of sagging or loose skin, giving me a smoother, sleeker and younger look and feel. It works in just one treatment with little or no downtime and delivers a natural looking result. This safe procedure uses patented, FDA cleared technology that delivers heat into the skin to rejuvenate existing collagen and stimulate new collagen growth.

Before the Thermage procedure, the therapist helped to apply the numbing cream on my clean face and neck. As my sagging jowls and marionette lines are rather obvious, Dr Wong gave more focus on my chin area. Do you know a slimmer and V-shaped jawline actually makes us look much younger? To achieve a better result, high energy was used to treat most of the areas of my face. The high energy however, will make the procedure a little more painful on some areas. In fact, I find the pain bearable. Do not be worried if you are worried about the pain factor as your doctor will be managing your expectations for this treatment as well your comfort with the treatment level. I was given 900 shots in total on my face and neck. The whole procedure took slightly more than an hour. There is no downtime upon the procedure, no sign of redness and swelling at all!

I could actually see a slight improvement immediately upon the procedure. My sagging jowls seem more defined.

It’s almost two months after the procedure and I’m super pleased to see visible results! The appearance of my face has improved greatly and I look years younger. The sagging cheek is lifted and a lot tighter. Because my face is firmer now, the nasolabiol folds and marionette lines seem less obvious. Prior the treatment, my jowls used to look heavy and slightly squarish but now my jawline appears slimmer and sharper and that actually makes me look a lot younger now. :D

I definitely will choose Thermage over Botox as my yearly maintenance regimen. Though Botox (lasts from 3 to 6 months) can instantly minus 5 years off my face but it does NOTHING to boost my skin’s natural production of collagen. However Thermage is able to treat all the way down to its collagen-rich underlayer (dermis) and inner layer (subcutaneous layer). This collagen stimulation helps tighten and smooth skin tone and reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Because the deepest skin layers are treated, results are long-lasting. Unlike Botox, my skin’s age actually decreases with Thermage. :D

To help reverse my signs of aging and maintain my youthful-looking skin, all I need is one Thermage treatment per year! No surgery, injections and little to no downtime! And the results are long lasting! :D

If you want to see better results, you may consider to add on Stem Cell Reverse package to Thermage treatment.

      Hi En En,

      The treatment prices as follows :

      Thermage Face (600 shots) : $2500
      Thermage Face (1200 shots – for 2 users) : $4500
      Thermage Face & Neck (900 shots) : $3200

      Thermage can help to increase collagen production whilst threadlift can’t. I will still prefer Thermage as it’s less painful.
