After a lifetime of laughing, smiling, furrowing brows or lighting up in surprise, the skin on your face can really show the signs of aging. Your face is also the area of your skin most exposed to the elements, bearing the brunt of environmental factors like sun damage. Over time, the smooth, sleek look you once had breaks down, becoming saggy, and lined with wrinkles. Your features lose definition – especially in the jawline, lips and neck.
Thermage also affects deep beneath the skin surface, helping to redefine your jawline and reduce excess skin under the chin - all in a single treatment. Thermage's unique capacitive radiofrequency (RF) technology safely heats the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth. The result is skin that looks and feels noticeably smoother, tighter and firmer.
When the energy is applied, you will feel a deep but brief heating sensation, which is an indication that collagen is reaching effective temperatures for tightening. To protect the surface of your skin, a cooling spray is delivered before, during and after each application of energy. You will be asked for feedback on the level of heat sensation experienced during the procedure to help balance your comfort with maximum results.
Dr Chew has had the Thermage with CPT since 2010 and feels that the Comfort Pulse Technology has been proven to significantly improve treatment comfort and you will be happy with the experience and delighted with the results.
The Thermage CPT system has enhanced heating for further collagen stimulation giving more predictable results and younger looking skin. Thanks to improved heat delivery and a new vibrating hand piece , in clinical studies 100 % of patients preferred being treated with the Thermage CPT System -- and you will too.
Thermage is built on proven science – and safety. Thermage has the longest history in aesthetic radiofrequency treatments, nearly a decade and over 1 million treatments. Thermage technology is clinically proven to be safe and effective. Even so, because all patients are different and conditions can vary, some side effects are possible.
Side effects are generally mild and may include redness, swelling and mild/moderate pain during treatment. Potential risks include itching, blanching, blisters, bumps, burns, scabbing, scarring, bruising pigment changes, altered sensations, surface irregularities, and herpes reactivation.
Generally, some improvement is visible and continues for up to six months.
Little to no downtime
After treatment, you can quickly get back to your normal routine.
