Treatment Information

Thermage for Body Contouring

The development of Thermage CPT has taken Thermage skin tightening, also known as Thermacool, to a new level by offering improved results and patient comfort so that greater levels of radiofrequency energy may be delivered more comfortably. The Comfort Pulsed Techology (CPT) delivers a gentle vibration sensation with cool bursts of air to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Improved patient comfort allows for greater delivery of skin firming energy to all areas treated, including:

  • Face
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Knees

Just one Thermage treatment is usually all that is needed to help:

  • Tighten skin
  • Redefine body contours
  • Minimize the appearance of cellulite
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles

The Thermage Procedure

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.*

In Pittsburgh, Thermage skin tightening treatments are performed in our Mt. Lebanon, PA, Shadyside, PA and Wexford, PA med spa locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 • abdomen • inner or outer thighs Men and women with crepe-like skin on their hands and knees, as well as those wishing to reduce the appearance of cellulite are also good candidates
