Procerus Skin Care in Ann Arbor, Michigan is an experienced expert authorized provider of the Thermage FLX treatment listed on their site: https://www.thermage.com/ . Thermage FLX is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that can smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance. With one quick treatment, Thermage has the ability to deliver maximum results in a short, comfortable procedure. There is little to no downtime for this treatment, so you’re able to go right back to life as usual. It is recommended by physicians as part of an annual skin rejuvenation maintenance program, although results improve over time and can last for years. Our practice offers the most up-to-date Thermage system, the FLX.
What is Thermage Skin Tightening & How Does it Work?
The Thermage FLX system uses heat energy generated by Radiofrequency (RF) to heat the dermis of the skin stimulating collagen contraction promoting tightening and improving the appearance of the skin from the dermis up. The FLX version of Thermage is another improvement of the powerful skin tightening technology pioneer. In the FLX version, Thermage added intuitive device feedback ensuring even delivery of energy with each pulse. Another update is the incorporation of vibration during the pulse delivery to aid in comfort during the treatment.
When Will I See Thermage Skin Tightening Results?
Results are not immediate, but develop overtime and can last for up to two years or more depending on your skin condition and the aging process. After one Thermage treatment, you may notice the lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead start to soften, improved definition on the jawline and under the chin and reduced “hooding” around the eyes for a more awakened look. For body treatments, the Thermage FLX offers improved contours and appearance of more firm smooth skin. Unlike many cosmetic procedures requiring multiple sessions, this device delivers results after a single treatment. Best of all, results continue over time.
Tightening Eyelid Skin with Thermage FLX
Crepey, wrinkly eyelids cramping your makeup artistry? The new Thermage FLX system has an applicator specifically for treating the thin lax sagging skin of the eyelids. The treatment promotes new collagen and elastin formation and promotes collagen contraction for tightening of the skin. It is a pain free minimum to no downtime alternative to surgical eyelid tightening.
Am I a Good Candidate for Thermage?
Thermage is approved for all skin types, colors and ages. Individuals with implanted mechanical or electrical devices are not candidates for Thermage.
How much does Thermage FLX cost?
The cost depends on the area that you’re having treated. The doctor will be able to give you a more precise idea on cost based on where you want to see results.
I could not be happier or more impressed with the treatment and service at Procerus Skin Care in Ann Arbor Michigan. I had deep pitted acne scarring for 20 years. I had tried everything available to get the scarring to the surface, with no improvement. Dr. Gilmore did a combination of Co2 with PRP, Thread lift, and Bellafill. I already look like a new person, and I expect to see even more improvement over the next few months. I can also speak to her artistry with Botox and Dysport. Oh! and she microneedled my neck to plump, smooth perfection. I wasted a lot of resources on very little improvement over the last 20 years. Dr. Kathleen will only perform procedures that will give you results, and I appreciate that! *
Professional, courtesy and honest. What a refreshing staff!
Best hydra facial I’ve had in Ann Arbor. They carry Botox (actual Botox brand) unlike many med spas in the area.
Dr. Kathleen and her staff are beyond wonderful. Dr. K is the best combination of medical expertise and bedside manner. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and goes out of her way to explain, answer questions, and ensure the client understands and is comfortable and confident with their treatment(s). Her practice is of the highest quality and well worth a visit. I highly recommend her on all fronts. And her staff is extremely professional, communicative / responsive, accommodating, and friendly. You want great treatment options / service offerings, great results, and a great experience - please take my word, Procerus is the right spot.

I had a friend come with me because she was curious about dysport and Botox. Jamie took the time to answer all of her questions and answer my questions. She also talk to me about future stuff that I have been thinking about. I got dysport in two places, it was seamless and painless and it’s been less than 24 hours and I already know I’m going to love the results.
Kathleen Gilmore, MD. MBA.
Dr. Kathleen Gilmore, a Detroit native, born the eve of the Detroit Riots; who often recalls how her mother always told her that she started it! She knew from age 8 that she wanted to become a Medical Doctor. This inspiration was born out of the numerous doctor appointments and hospital stays her mother had throughout Dr. Gilmore’s childhood at referral medical facilities for a rare disorder. It was typical to see a room full of doctors, residents and medical students on these occasions. That is where she began to see the vision for her own future. She attended The University of Michigan where she completed her Medical School admission requirements while earning a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. She also participated in medical research by way of work study opportunities during her Undergraduate years. She completed Wayne State School of Medicine in 1995 where she earned her MD degree. Her great interest in science and technology led to her study and expertise in Laser Medicine and Surgery. She served as the corporate medical director and vice president of American Laser Centers, where she was honored by being named a finalist in the Best Executive – Service Businesses – up to 2,500 Employees category in the fourth annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business, presented by Infiniti. She was also recognized by Lawrence Technology Institute as a Leader and Innovator. During her time at American Laser Centers, she was invited to speak numerous times nationally as well as internationally at Beauty and Cosmetic Medical Conferences and Trade Shows. She has also presented and published key findings in her field in The American Society of Laser Surgery and Medicine Journal. Dr Gilmore has trained numerous estheticians, nurses and physicians in laser applications, and injectable treatments over the past 2 decades. Dr. Gilmore has also traveled extensively for missionary work, including The Gambia, South Africa, Croatia, The Philippines and Cuba, in addition to volunteer work in Ypsilanti and Detroit.
Dr. Gilmore founded Procerus Skin Care in Ann Arbor in 2012 continuing her love in the industry of prejuvenation and positive aging which continues to expand with the growth of energy based technologies with Dr. Gilmore right there on the cutting edge.
