Radio-Frequency Skin Tightening & Lifting + Non-Surgical Face-Lift (Thermage® CPT)

Thermage® CPT (Comfort Pulse Technology) is a new generation Thermage, the latest in skin tightening technology.  Thermage® pioneered the science of non-invasive radio-frequency (RF) energy for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines.  Thermage® treatments provide volumetric heating to stimulate collagen regeneration and remodeling in patients to smooth and contour their skin, in just one treatment.  The latest device, the Thermage® CPT, represents a quantum leap in treatment efficacy, and most importantly, patient comfort and satisfaction, bringing clinical results and patient comfort to the next level. 

Simply put, Thermage® CPT is

  • Proven - more than 1 million treatments performed worldwide
  • Effective - visible results in just one treatment, with little to no downtime             
  • Flexible - treats all skin types and a wide range of areas across the body and face, including eyelids.

What is Thermage®?

Thermage® is a safe, non-invasive procedure that is clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance without surgery or injections.  The treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime - on all skin colors, on and off the face, all in a single procedure.  Since there is no surgery involved you can generally return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.

How does it work?

As you age, the collagen in your skin breaks down resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.  Thermage® uses patented radio-frequency (RF) technology to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth for younger looking skin.

A hand piece with a smooth, flat tip delivers Thermage's® unique radio-frequency (RF) technology, which safely heats the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin.  The heat helps tighten existing collagen and stimulate the formation of new collagen over time, which reduces sagging, renews contours, and improves the smoothness and texture of the skin's surface.

How long is the treatment?

Thermage® treatments average about 45 minutes for the face, and up to 60-90 minutes for other parts of the body, depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated.

What parts of the body do Thermage® procedures treat?

Thermage® procedures can effectively and safely treat skin on most body parts, including the face, eyes, lips, tummy, arms, hands, thighs and buttocks.  Tummies, knees, legs, arms and hands can be areas that show signs of aging.  Thermage® can treat these areas too.  It helps to smooth and tighten, contour and shape, tightening sagging skin and unwanted bulges.  Thermage® helps tighten, firm, and shape arms, thighs, buttocks and tummies.

The Thermage® eye procedure is complementary to the face procedure, and helps smooth and tighten skin around the eyes and eyelids, decreasing wrinkles, lines and hooding.  You will have younger looking, more lifted eyes that look less tired.

What kind of results can I expect?

Everyone can expect some collagen tightening.  Your skin will look smoother and more youthful as the tighter underlying collagen offers better support. 

You can expect: 

  • Smoother, tighter, lifted skin with less sagging   
  • Redefined contours along the jaw line and under the chin     
  • Softening of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead  
  • Tightening the saggy skin under the chin
  • Your eyes can look brighter with reduced hooding                                                  
  • Elsewhere on the body, wrinkled or sagging skin can appear smoother; bulging skin can be tighter and firmer

Results will vary depending on age and skin condition.

When do the results appear, and how long do they last?

For most patients, measurable tightening and contouring gradually appear in the two to six months following a single treatment session.  Common benefits are smoother, tighter skin with less sagging; redefined contours along the jaw line and under the chin; softening of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, eyes and forehead; tightening the sagging skin under the chin.

How many treatments will I need?

Unlike many laser procedures requiring four or more sessions, Thermage® treatment delivers results in a single treatment for most patients.

What will I look like immediately after the procedure? Can I go right back to work?

There is no special care needed after treatment, and most patients return to their regular activities immediately following the treatment.

Does it hurt?

Each time the treatment device touches your skin, you will feel a brief cooling sensation, followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation.  The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of your skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening, while the cooling sensation protects the surface of your skin.  Throughout the procedure, your doctor will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results.

Can I get a Thermage® procedure instead of a face-lift?

Thermage® can definitely tighten your skin, but it will not provide the dramatic results of a surgical face-lift.  If you would like modest tightening of your skin without surgery, then Thermage® may be right for you.

Can I get Thermage® procedure if I have already had other procedures?

Thermage® procedures are compatible with most other cosmetic procedures, like soft-tissue fillers and Botox.  For best results, you will need to discuss your past procedures with your doctor.

Is it safe?

Thermage® procedures have an excellent safety record.  Side effects are generally mild and may include redness, swelling, bumps and rare instances of surface irregularities.  History & Safety Profile: 

  • 10+ years of innovation and proven results
