NEW ORLEANS, La., May 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Thermage, Inc.

Research has shown that 29% of Gynecologists are performing some form of non-surgical aesthetic treatments in their office. More specifically, 15% offer at least one procedure for skin tightening, rejuvenation, contouring and/or cellulite treatment as their aesthetic component.(1)

"Incorporating aesthetic medicine into an OB/GYN office allows utilization of the existing facility and patient base for the initial launch. This gives patients the opportunity to see a doctor they know and trust. Consequently, the gynecologist capitalizes on this established credibility by simply extending the scope of service offered to many easily mastered aesthetic procedures," commented Dr Scott Kramer, an OB/GYN whose successful integration of aesthetics resulted in the opening of a medical spa to supplement his OB/GYN practice.

Thermage is attractive to many patients because it produces the subtle results over time for a younger looking appearance without surgery or injections and little to no downtime.

"A growing number of consumers continue to seek anti-aging solutions and one of the most noticeable signs of aging is lax skin," said Sherree Lucas, Vice President of Marketing of Thermage. "Thermage is considered the gold standard in skin tightening with no surgery, injections or downtime."

Thermage provides a full suite of products that can be used to help smooth, tighten and contour skin all over the body: face, eyelids, abdomen, legs and more. Thermage has recently announced several new products for Body Shaping and for the treatment of Cellulite.
