AN RF Treatment For Better Skin

Thanks to advanced radiofrequency (RF) technology, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jason Emer can tighten and smooth loose skin with Thermage. Dr. Emer’s Thermage patients in Beverly Hills enjoy gradual improvements to the texture and quality of their skin, along with significant anti-aging benefits.

What Is Thermage?

Thermage RF therapy is a minimally invasive skin tightening and collagen-stimulating treatment. Thermage can be performed on the face, neck, chest, stomach, arms, elbows, legs, knees, and buttocks. This FDA-approved skin rejuvenation therapy only requires 30 to 90 minutes and can:


  • Reduce skin laxity
  • Smooth wrinkles
  • Minimize the appearance of mild cellulite
  • Stimulate collagen production
  • Improve skin texture and radiance
  • Prevent and slow visible signs of aging

Am I a Good Candidate For Thermage?

Thermage is safe for all ethnicities and all skin types. However, it is best to see an expertly trained cosmetic dermatologist like Dr. Emer for a formal evaluation to determine if Thermage is the best way to address your skin concerns.

In general, patients who want to treat early signs of aging, such as crepey skin, skin laxity, and cellulite are potential candidates for this treatment. Patients with more severe cases of loose or sagging skin may be better candidates for more intensive procedures, such as cosmetic surgery.

How Does Thermage Work?

The Thermage device emits RF energy to heat the deep, collagen-rich sublayers of your skin. The heat causes an immediate, skin tightening contraction in the area. The controlled thermal damage also triggers the body’s natural healing process, which prompts increased collagen production. The instant contraction response and long-term stimulation of collagen growth can result in reduced sagging, improved texture, and smoother, tighter skin over time.

Throughout the procedure, Dr. Emer will adjust the heat temperature to effectively treat the skin while also keeping the patient comfortable. The Thermage system’s built-in cooling and vibration features also minimize discomfort during the procedure. Patients who can tolerate a stronger RF energy often experience more tightening and collagen stimulation.

Thermage Skin Tightening Results

Improvements in skin quality appear gradually as collagen is replenished. Most patients see noticeable results within a few months. Depending on your body’s unique natural collagen production and aging processes, you can enjoy skin tightening effects for one to two years.

How Often Should I Have Thermage Therapy?

Dr. Emer will advise you when to schedule Thermage based on your unique treatment plan and cosmetic concerns. He often recommends that patients book this procedure once or twice a year to delay the need for more aggressive skin rejuvenation intervention. Thermage patients who are diligent about maintenance treatments generally appear younger longer than those who do not have the procedure regularly.

What Is Thermage Good For?

Thermage is safe for use on the face and body, allowing Dr. Emer to incorporate it into many skin rejuvenation and facial and body sculpting treatment plans. He may recommend:

Thermage for Eyelid Rejuvenation

The natural aging process can dramatically affect the skin around our eyes. From drooping and hooding to under-eye bags and crepey lower-eyelid skin, this area can add years to our facial appearance. Dr. Emer often performs Thermage to stimulate collagen production and address many common cosmetic concerns with the eye area.

Thermage for Neck and Chest Rejuvenation

Many patients neglect these areas when it comes to skincare and sunscreen. Thermage can be a vital part of treating wrinkles and lax skin in the neck and chest areas.

Thermage for Arms

Moderate skin laxity in the arms can be improved with Thermage in combination with other minimally invasive treatments to reduce wrinkles, tighten and tone the arms, and smooth the skin.

Thermage Stomach Skin Tightening

Even patients who exercise regularly and have great muscle tone can have loose skin around the abdomen. Using Thermage, Dr. Emer can tighten and lift crepey or loose skin to improve the appearance and texture of the stomach. Thermage is also a popular treatment for moms who want to address moderate post-pregnancy skin laxity in the stomach area without undergoing cosmetic surgery.

Thermage for Knee and Thigh Skin Tightening

The knees and thighs are commonly affected by visible signs of aging, making many patients self-conscious about wearing shorts or skirts. Dr. Emer performs Thermage in combination with various therapies to prompt tightening and lifting in the knee and thigh area.

Thermage for Aging Prevention

As someone who cares deeply about his patients’ long-term care, Dr. Emer frequently includes Thermage in his anti-aging protocols for its lasting collagen-stimulating effect.

Thermage: The Dr. Emer Difference

Dr. Emer’s proprietary, patient-tailored combination treatments deliver results that consistently exceed his patients’ expectations. He has developed effective methods of combining Thermage with other collagen-boosting and skin rejuvenating procedures to achieve transformative and lasting results.

To comprehensively address skin laxity, wrinkles, cellulite, and loose or crepey skin, Dr. Emer often complements Thermage with:


  • Laser treatment
  • Microneedling
  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections
  • Sculptra
  • Ultherapy


“My first time doing Thermage was with Dr. Jason Emer in Beverly Hills. Dr. Emer is the best of the best in cosmetic dermatology. He is exceptionally empathetic, talented, skilled and creative. He is always up to date on new instruments and procedures and has done clinical trials and studies for most of the dermatology lasers now on the market. I was really scared of the possible pain from thermage but it was essentially painless the whole time. It was really hard to believe how easy and comfortable the whole process felt. It is true that procedures and equipment are only as good as the physician using them. I have had many, many different cosmetic skin treatments, but the only dermatologist I would ever consult now is Dr. Emer. Head over to see Dr. Emer. You’ll never regret it. Blessed in Beverly Hills”

I am already so pleased with my results and I will only be seeing Dr. Emer for all of my skin and aging needs moving forward. The staff is warm and welcoming and all in all it was an incredible experience.”

“I was told I had skin laxity, not cellulite. Jeremy recommended a combo of mesotherapy, novathreads and Thermage. He told me Nurse ReVay has performed hundreds and there’s been improvement with every procedure. The staff and nurse were kind and patient and did their best to keep me comfortable.”
