Thermage is a quick and easy procedure that smoothens and tightens the skin, decreasing wrinkles and hooding in the treated area without surgery or injections. Thermage is a single treatment that uses unique, deep-heating technology to stimulate and tighten the existing collagen as well as stimulate new collagen growth in the affected area. The procedure usually takes one to two hours, and leaves the skin tighter and smoother, improving skin tone and texture without leaving any bruising, swelling and sutures.

Dr. Stephan Preuss was my surgeon and I really didn’t know what to expect from him when I arrived. Lori [of Guatemala Medical Travel] had told me he is one of the best doctors around and he definitely lived up to her description. He was very professional, spoke perfect English and I was very happy that he never tried to oversell me on my procedure. He was open and very honest about what he could do and what he felt would give me the best results. His office and staff are amazing. New, clean and efficient. They go out of their way to make sure you feel comfortable. Would I recommend Guatemala Medical Travel and Dr. Preuss? You bet 100%!
