What is it?
Thermage CPT is a skin tightening treatment targeted at sagging skin and early wrinkles.
It uses a patented FDA approved unipolar radio-frequency technology to safely heat the collagen found in the deeper layers of the skin. This even heating causes collagen fibres to contract and also promotes new collagen growth.
The treatment can be used on the face, the neck, arms, buttocks, thighs, the abdomen as well as delicate areas around the eyes.
What to expect?
Patients will feel a warm sensation throughout the area treated with the CPT version of Thermage.
The discomfort is mostly tolerable compared to older iterations.
Thermage treatment side effects are generally mild but can include redness and swelling.
Patients can return to their regular activities after the treatment.
