THERMAGE

SKIN TIGHTENING WITH THERMAGE CPT (3RD GENERATION)

Thermage is a safe, FDA-approved, non-invasive, radiofrequency (RF) treatment to tighten, gently lift skin and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance. The unique treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime – on all skin colours, on and off the face.
Thermage is the Gold standard for Radio Frequency Skin tightening and Body Contouring. It uses Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) to improve efficacy, improve patient comfort and improved patient satisfaction.
The Thermage™ CPT skin tightening procedure employs a patented radiofrequency (CRF) technology called ThermaCool to safely heat the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating your existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth.
It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smooth out wrinkles and renew facial and body contours. This non-surgical, non-invasive procedure requires no downtime from normal activities.

How does it work?

Its unique radiofrequency (RF) technology safely heats the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin, while cooling the surface of your skin to keep it intact during the procedure. This deep heating stimulates your body’s natural skin renewal process, which helps to tighten existing collagen and stimulate the formation of new collagen. Over time, sagging or wrinkled skin is replaced with smoother, tighter skin; improved tone and texture; and an overall younger looking appearance.

Thermage is FDA cleared for the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and temporary improvement in the appearance of cellulite. In addition, Thermage is also cleared by the FDA for non-invasive eyelid treatments.

How long does each treatment take?

Patients will need to be prepped about 20 minutes before the procedure. During the procedure, a handheld device is pressed against your skin to safely deliver heat to the inner layers, at the same time cooling the surface of the skin. Each time the treatment device touches your skin during the treatment, you’ll feel a vibration and 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. Throughout the procedure, your physician will ask for feedback on the level of heat sensation to help balance your comfort with maximum results.  Thermage treatments average about 45 minutes for the face and up to an hour and a half for other parts of the body, depending on the size, location and condition of the area to be treated.

Is there any pain or downtime?

The treatment incorporates vibration which has been shown to provide patient comfort. You’ll feel a brief heating sensation when the treatment device’s tip touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to help protect your skin and minimize any discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Some patients experience slight redness or minor swelling after the treatment which will typically go away within 24 hours. You can return to your regular activities immediately.

What results should I expect?

For most patients, measurable results can appear gradually in the two to six months following a single treatment session and can last for about 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and ageing process.

How many treatments will I need?

Thermage is designed as a single session treatment.  However, some patients may choose to have a second treatment to obtain additional tightening.  The skin will continue to improve over a six-month time period.

HOW IS THERMAGE TECHNOLOGY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER TIGHTENING PROCEDURES?

Unlike some other procedures, Thermage involves no surgery, no injections and little to no downtime, and Thermage works on all skin colors – on and off the face. By heating the innermost layers of skin, Thermage tightens collagen and stimulates the formation of new collagen, which results in tighter skin and an overall younger looking appearance.

HOW DO THERMAGE RESULTS COMPARE TO THOSE OF OTHER TREATMENTS?

Some people want the dramatic results of surgery. Others want the more subtle, gradual results of a non-invasive treatment with no downtime. This is where Thermage succeeds, delivering improved skin tone, texture and tightness. When lotions and potions are not enough and surgery is too much, Thermage is a safe, effective solution.

Is Thermage compatible with fillers?

Yes, it is usually advisable to do your Thermage first before you do the fillers, however like all treatments, it’s always better to arrange a consultation with the doctor first.
