Thermage CPT for skin tightening does exactly what it claims to do. It sends radio frequency energy into the deep layers of the skin, this energy turns into heat which causes your collagen chains to shorten and thicken, creating a tightening effect.
Radiofrequency energy creates uniform heating within the skin. This heating tightens existing collagen within the dermis and stimulates the production of new collagen in the treated areas. This usually results in textural improvement of the skin. Improvements in fine lines and wrinkles can be seen, superficial skin tightening and a slight lift in the facial appearance.
This treatment is extremely good in improving the textural quality of the skin, especially in smoothening out “crepey” skin. Besides just treating the face, Radiofrequency is also commonly used to treat sagging skin on the body such as the abdomen, thighs and arms, just to name a few.Your skin will also appear tighter because of some mild swelling that occurs immediately after the treatment and resolves itself by the next day.
This denaturing of your collagen provokes skin fibroblasts to produce new, healthy collagen. The process takes a few months so although you will see an immediate improvement; it is the long term collagen growth and stimulation of blood flow in the fatty layer where the real results will be found. In fact, you will continue to see results for up to 6 months.
ThermageCPT is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy that can address the look and feel of aging skin on many areas of your body.
IS THERMAGE EFFECTIVE?

HOW NOTICEABLE ARE THE THESE RESULTS?
The tightening from Thermage can be measured in millimeters. So it is subtle and certainly a more suitable treatment for skin that isn’t too loose or damaged. It is not a substitute for plastic surgery and not everyone is a good candidate for this treatment. Patients between the ages of 30 and 60 with skin that still has good ‘snap-back’ when pinched, will do well with Thermage.
One of the best parts of this treatment is the ‘no downtime’ factor. Thermage CPT is non-ablative, so all of the controlled damage and heating is under the top layers, leaving your surface skin unharmed. There is a cooling feature built into the tip which keeps the top layers of skin safe from overheating. The new Thermage CPT also has a vibration in the hand piece which is distracting and increases the comfort level.
Each disposable tip has 1200 pulses which are enough to cover the face, sides of neck and under the chin.
You can choose which area you would like your technician to give more attention to. The mid-face and jawline are most often the spots that people request to put the extra pulses into.
Thermage CPT can be done all over the body and tightening loose tummy skin has been particularly successful.
One last reminder, be patient and realistic with your expectations. Your results will take time.
