The development of Thermage CPT has taken Thermage, also known as Thermacool, skin tightening to a new level by offering improved results and patient comfort so that greater levels of radiofrequency energy may be delivered more comfortably. Improved patient comfort allows for a greater skin tightening and body contouring effect on all body parts, including:
Just one Thermage skin tightening treatment is usually all that is needed to help:
- Tighten skin
- Redefine body contours
- Minimize the appearance of cellulite
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles
During treatment, individuals may experience tolerable sensations of warmth, followed by a cool spritzing that is delivered by the unit's hand piece before, during and after the treatment tip makes contact with the skin. The treatment generally takes 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.
Following the treatment, most individuals return to their regular daily activities. Some may experience mild to moderate skin flushing, which usually subsides within an hour. Most individuals feel a slight aching along the treated area that doesn't necessitate any type of pain medication. There is no special care needed after treatment, but an effective sunscreen is recommended to prolong the result.
Results are long lasting, up to two years or more in some cases and can be seen within two months with continued improvement over four to six months.
How is Thermage™ CPT System different than Thermage skin tightening?
The newer Thermage CPT System volumetrically heats the deep layers of the skin, while cooling the epidermis to non-invasively smooth, tighten and contour skin in a single treatment. This proprietary CPT, or Comfort Pulse Technology, allows for the delivery of more therapeutic heat energy, more comfortably than in prior systems, offering patients better results.
Body by Thermage CPT at The Skin Center Medical Spa is performed with a larger 16 centimeter tip for more evenly distributed skin tightening energy, resulting in maximum skin tightening and body contouring in half the time of the standard treatment.
Who are the best candidates for Body by Thermage™ CPT?
The best candidates for Body by Thermage CPT are non-overweight individuals with slight or moderate loose skin on areas such as:
- upper arms
- inner or outer thighs
Also men and women with crepe-like skin on their hands and knees, as well as those experiencing cellulite.
Are their alternative skin tightening procedures to the Thermage skin treatment?
Individuals with excessive skin laxity or those who would like to see quicker results may want to consider a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure at The Skin Center Medical Spa. Depending on individual concerns, an Abdominoplasty or Tummy Tuck surgery, or a SmartLipo™ laser liposuction procedure may be a better option for more immediate and longer lasting results.
