Thermage CPT (Cool Pulse Technology) is the latest evolution of Thermage technology, which utilizes radio frequency waves to tone and firm the skin. Anyone who has had a “Thermage” treatment in the past will probably tell you that it worked…but it was extremely painful. That’s where the Comfort Pulse Technology comes in – it brings Thermage to a whole new level. The latest generation has been designed to cool and protect the tops layers of your skin while gently heating the deeper layers to provide optimal results. Because of this new technology, pain medication is no longer necessary for a Thermage treatment.
During the treatment, the radiofrequency waves gently create a heating effect in the deep dermis. This dermal heating tightens existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen. While the deep layers are being heated, the surface of our skin is gently cooled. As a result of this cooling, the procedure is much more tolerable than the “old” Thermage treatments and patients will have virtually no downtime.
Initial results can be visualized immediately after the procedure because the collagen contraction lifts and tightens the skin. This immediate result will typically dissipate after 72 hours. As the collagen rebuilding process beings, you will notice a gradual improvement with optimal results at six months. In addition to lifting and firming, facial wrinkles are often minimized and jaw and cheekbone areas may become more defined.
Did we mention that Thermage CPT is FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles on the entire body? We can treat eyes, jowels, arms, hands, knees, thighs, buttocks, stomachs….the possibilities are endless!
