Thermage, a Skin-Tightening Procedure Used by Gwyneth Paltrow Provides an Alternative to Traditional Cosmetic Surgery
Dr Laurence Kirwan’s biography published on WIKIPEDIA gives an overview of his professional achievements and personal ethics.
“It’s perfect for those who don’t want a facelift,” says plastic surgeon Dr Laurence Kirwan
People who want to look younger but aren’t comfortable getting a full-blown facelift should consider Thermage, a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment now being offered by noted cosmetic surgeon Dr Laurence Kirwan.
“This is the perfect solution for those who don’t need or want to get a complete facelift. Thermage is a radio-frequency treatment that tightens and contours the skin in just one doctor’s visit, versus three to five. It avoids surgery and injections. Most patients also need very little ‘downtime’ consisting of minutes to a few hours of mild redness, following the procedure,” Kirwan said.
Dr Laurence Kirwan is a recognised international leader in aesthetic plastic surgery with clinics in Harley Street, London; New York City and Connecticut, USA. He specialises in aesthetic plastic surgery of the face, breast and body.
“The patients I’ve treated with this procedure were overwhelmed with the results. They told me they wanted to look younger but didn’t want ‘plastic surgery.’ This is a great compromise,” Prof. Kirwan said.
One notable person impressed with Thermage’s results is actress Gwyneth Paltrow. She is starring in the action adventure movie “Iron Man 3,” due for release April 26th in the UK and May 3rd in the U.S.
Paltrow said Thermage took a couple of years off her face and thus has become one part of her “beauty arsenal.” She explored the new procedure because, although she might have cosmetic surgery someday, she doesn’t like the idea of it. “I don’t mind a few wrinkles and freckles. I had Thermage done recently and it took years off my face,” Paltrow explains.
Many people scoff at “plastic surgery” but Dr Laurence Kirwan noted a University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine study found 87% of cosmetic surgery patients reported fewer negative feelings about their body image in both professional and personal settings: “Cosmetic surgery has its benefits when used responsibly. It can improve people’s self-esteem but shouldn’t replace it.”
“People still must remember, it’s not just ‘cosmetic surgery,’ it’s surgery. You need to talk with your surgeon about the surgery’s goals and expectations. You need to understand the side effects as well as the benefits before you do anything,” Dr Laurence Kirwan warns.
