Paul Drago, MD, is an eye-nose-throat doctor (otolaryngologist) based in Columbia, South Carolina, who has worked in preventative care, anti-aging, and plastic surgery for over 15 years. While a research fellow at Louisiana State University (LSU) in the late 1990s, Dr. Paul Drago conducted studies and promoted the science of skin rejuvenation, a field that he continues to actively study today.
Thermage™ skin rejuvenation is a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved, patented technology to activate the natural skin renewal process in the human body. Thermage technology applies heat energy to deep skin tissue to activate collagen and then cools it quickly to seal it in for a healthy, smooth skin appearance. Certified medical practitioners use a Thermage wand, a device that vibrates the skin at a cool temperature, heats the skin quickly, zaps the affected skin area with a radiofrequency energy beam, and finally cools the skin to complete the process.
Since his work at LSU, Dr. Paul Drago has furthered his education in plastic surgery, continuing to learn and train in the latest surgical techniques. Dr. Drago is certified in PPx treatment for hair removal and photofacials, hair replacement techniques, skin cancer and reconstruction surgeries, fat grafting, breast augmentation, Thermage skin rejuvenation, and much more.
