Thermage CPT is a breakthrough in non-invasive skin tightening and contouring that helps you to achieve a more natural look that improves with time.
WHAT IS THE THERMAGE CPT PROCEDURE?
Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin. The heat helps to remodel existing collagen and stimulates the formation of new collagen, which reduces sagging and improves contouring, texture and smoothness of the skin. Check out the video below, which illustrates Thermage in action.
HOW IS THERMAGE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SKIN TIGHTENING PROCEDURES?
Unlike other procedures, Thermage involves no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime. In addition, Thermage is suitable for ALL skin colours and types, on and off the face. While lasers and other radiofrequency procedures also tighten skin, NO other treatment heats the deep tissues like Thermage. By heating the innermost layers of the skin, Thermage is the most effective!
BENEFITS OF THE THERMAGE CPT TREATMENT
- Non-invasive/non-surgical – unlike a surgical facelift, there are NO surgical incisions/punctures made throughout the procedure
- Clinically proven safe, with very low risk for side effects – it is a form of treatment that is approved by regulatory bodies worldwide
- Minimal to no pain – most patients typically report either mild discomfort or no pain at all
- No downtime – with Thermage, you are up and about the very same day
- Affordable – it is less costly than a formal surgical facelift
WHAT CAN THERMAGE DO?
Thermage can effectively and safely treat skin on most parts of the body, including the face, eyes, lips, neck and decolletage area, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks.
On the face, Thermage can treat sagging skin over the cheeks/jowls, saggy neck skin or “turkey neck”, lack of definition of the lips and jaw line, as well as wrinkles and fine lines. Around the eyes, Thermage can treat dark undereye bags, sagging of the upper eyelids or “hooding”, rough texture of the eyelids, wrinkles and fine lines. Elsewhere on the body, Thermage can be used to treat wrinkled, saggy or bulging skin (e.g. post pregnancy skin laxity). It can also temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.
IS THERE ANY SPECIAL PREPARATION OR FOLLOW-UP REGIME?
No pre-procedure preparation is needed. Post treatment, no special care is required, aside from the basic skin maintenance and sunscreens of a regular skincare regime. Most patients return to their regular activities immediately following treatment. Some patients experience minor redness and swelling – this is temporary and will usually resolve within 24 hours.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE FEEL LIKE?
Thermage is virtually painless as it now comes with the patented Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT), which produces gentle vibrations during the delivery of the radiofrequency waves to disrupt pain signals, thereby creating an almost painless experience. In addition, the treatment diffuses cooling spray to the treated areas of your skin, which further enhances the comfortable experience. In fact, as a testament to how comfortable the treatment is, some patients actually fall asleep during the procedure!
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT?
Thermage treatments average about 45 minutes for the face and up to an hour and a half for other parts of the body, depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated. Since it is a relatively short procedure and only needs to be performed once, it fits easily into your busy schedule.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Thermage delivers results in a SINGLE treatment for most patients.
WHEN DO THE RESULTS APPEAR AND HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
Visible results are usually seen within a few days and they tend to improve over time as collagen rebuilds. For most patients, measurable skin tightening and contouring appears gradually over the next 3 to 6 months following a single treatment session. Results can last between 1 to 2 years depending on your skin’s condition and stage of the aging process.
