Thermage® Body

Cellulite or Loose skin? Thermage® body non-invasive procedures smooth, tighten, and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance- without surgery, injections, or downtime. Thermage® can be used for loose skin on the abdomen, where it does a very nice job of lifting. It is also great for the neck, chest, and buttocks, and can be used for arm and leg skin tightening as well. The new 15 cm Thermage® body tip is almost painless and treats cellulite, and tightens skin and fat all in one fast treatment.


  • Skin feels tighter and smoother
  • Non-invasive
  • No downtime
  • No bruising, swelling, or sutures

How many treatments will I need?

Unlike many cosmetic procedures requiring multiple sessions, Thermage delivers results after a single treatment. Best of all, results continue to improve over time.

How long will the results last?

For most patients, measurable results appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session and can last for 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and aging process.

How long before I can get back to my normal activities?

Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. No special care is required afterward, aside from basic skin maintenance and sunscreens as part of a regular skincare regimen.

Does it hurt?

The Thermage system incorporates vibration on the face and body treatments, which has been shown to provide patient comfort. You’ll feel a brief heating sensation when the treatment device’s tip touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect your skin and minimize any discomfort.

Are there common side effects?

Some patients have temporary redness or minor swelling after treatment, but this usually goes away within 24 hours.

Dr. Riopelle and Donna Riopelle received the prestigious Pinnacle award from Thermage® for both 2007 and 2008 as top providers of the Thermage® procedure.
