Thermage or SMAS lifting: what is better to choose and what criteria to rely on? Our patients often ask a specialist such a question. Both thermage and smas lifting have similar properties.

Coolaser Clinic specialists will tell you how to choose a procedure, all benefits and drawbacks. And also, which procedure, thermage or SMAS-lifting, is right for you.


Basis of action: RF waves

Thermage is a hardware procedure that results in facial rejuvenation, skin lifting and wrinkle removal. Interestingly, thermage continues to work for 3-6 months after the procedure (due to the increased production of collagen).

Thermage or thermage therapy is a high-quality, modern analogue of plastic surgery. Radiofrequency waves effectively interact with skin cells, launching all regenerative processes.
