Thermage or SMAS lifting: which one is better and how to choose a procedure?

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.

Thanks to the action of radio frequency pulses, uniform heating of all layers of the dermis occurs. Warming up triggers the synthesis of the most important proteins – collagen and elastin, as well as normalizes blood circulation.

  • Pregnancy
  • Lactation
  • Eczema and dermatitis in the acute stage
  • Diabetes
  • Open wounds in the skin
  • Cardiovascular disease (specialist consultation required)

What are the advantages of Thermage?

  3. No damage to the skin

Duration of the Thermage session: individually, on average 40 minutes

Duration of the effect of rejuvenation and lifting: up to 12 months.

Thermage therapy is perfect for any area of the face, including the delicate skin of the eyelids and lips.

After the procedure, you will see:

  1. Tightened face oval
  2. 30% less wrinkles after just 1 procedure
  3. Long lasting effect
  4. Radiant and healthy complexion
  5. Firmer, firmer skin

SMAS lifting

Basis of action: ultrasound

Робила лазерне шліфування шкіри обличчя у лікаря Юлії. Все сподобалось, результат хороший. Обов‘язково прийду ще до неї взимку) Дякую за гарний сервіс♥️
Пришла в куллазер на фонофорез после операции в другой клинике к Любви Сергеевне и стала постоянным клиентом. За два месяца процедур с моя ситуация значительно улучшилась. Доктор также правильно подобрала мне уход для лица и процедуры по моему типу кожи. Далее попала к Сергею Григорьевичу и тоже осталась супер довольна. Очень помог мне решить мою проблему, современный подход, ответственно относится к пациентам, всегда идет на встречу, за что огромное спасибо. Отдельное спасибо администратору Алене, всегда на связи, всегда находит подходящее время для записи. Весь персонал доброжелательный, улыбчивый - всегда приятно быть гостем.
Very good clinic and equipments. English spoken. Yulya was very professional and did an excellent job on my face in order to remove the imperfections. Highly recommande for procedures.

Юлечка Михайловна отличный специалист, доволен работой и результатом от двух процедур лазерная шлифовка (одна на средних, вторая на максимальных настройках) плюс плазмолифтинг, плюс микроигольчатый rf лифтинг. И также 2 процедуры rejuran s делал. Реабилитация 1 неделя, все процедуры делал летом, сгладились старые рубцы, новые- до 1 года практически ушли, можно конечно ещё улучшать, но в рекламе косметических средств сниматься не собираюсь, а визуальный результат меня вполне устраивает, так что очень рекомендую !)
