Thermage CPTMay 22, 2014
Thermage is a safe, non-invasive, radiofrequency (RF) cosmetic procedure that has clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance.
How does Thermage work? Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin. With each pulse, Thermage delivers controlled, uniform and sustained heat to the dermis, deep underneath the skin surface where the collagen is. The immediate effect is collagen contraction. A secondary or later effect is collagen remodelling and production of new collagen, as well as continued tightening over several months as the skin heals. This reduces sagging, renews contours, and improves the smoothness and texture of the skin’s surface
The treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime—on all skin types on and off the face, all in a single procedure
CPT is Comfort Pulse Technology integrating user and patient comfort features to deliver the optimal results and the best treatment experience. Thermage CPT is the latest and the best Thermage machine available.
How can Thermage help to rejuvenate my skin?
Thermage use on:
- forehead can lift the eyebrows and enhance the appearance of the eyes, making them look more open, less tired, and more alert.
- cheeks can reduce the appearance of nasal folds that comes with increasing age.
- jaw line can reduce the appearance of jowls and sagging jaw line
- Neck, elbows, knees and abdomen can tighten sagging & loose skin
What do I expect during Themage treatment?
Most of the time, one only feels a warm sensation when the RF energy is delivered via the handpiece. With Thermage CPT, you will feel cooling and heating sensations during each pulse. The improved heat delivery and a vibrating hand piece in Thermage CPT will minimise this sting and ensure that you have a more comfortable treatment experience.
Throughout the treatment, Dr Wong will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results. Thermage treatments are usually 60 minutes for eyes or face and up to 90 minutes for larger body areas.
Is there any downtime before I return to my normal activities?
After treatment, your skin may be slightly red but most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment. There’s no special care needed after the procedure. As a part of good skin care, avoiding sun exposure and use of a broad spectrum sunscreen after treatment is recommended.
What kind of result should I expect?
You can expect collagen tightening with smoother, firmer skin and reduced sagging. Most patient can see the result immediately after treatment. Contours are better defined along the jaw line and under the chin. Wrinkles and finelines around the mouth, eyes and forehead are softened. Continued improvement and contouring can happen up to 6 months as your body regenrates collagen.
How long will the results last?
Results can last 1 to 2 years. Treatments are recommended once a year to maintain optimal results.
