The new Thermage CPT System represents a leap forward in skin tightening and contouring technology. Superior results and greater patient comfort are at the core of the new system, which leverages a proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology™ and a vibrating handpiece for more comfortable treatments.


Improvements:

    Improved efficacy due to more uniform heating and increased volume of tissue reaching therapeutic temperature
    Comfort Pulse Technology, including a vibrating handpiece, to deliver enhanced patient comfort

What is the Thermage procedure?

Thermage is a safe, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and contour skin to restore a naturally younger looking appearance. The Thermage procedure uses the ThermaCool® System to help tighten existing collagen and stimulate new natural collagen growth. Immediate results are usually visible and continue to improve for up to six months. Unlike lasers, the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin color.

How does the Thermage procedure work?

The procedure works by heating collagen fibers deep in the skin and underlying tissue, while protecting the skin's surface with a cooling spray. A ThermaTip treatment tip is attached to the ThermaCool System's handpiece. The ThermaTip briefly touches the skin, delivering the non-invasive capacitive radiofrequency energy beneath the skin. This deep uniform heating action causes the structures in the skin and underlying tissue to immediately tighten. Over time, new and remodeled collagen is produced to further tighten and contour skin.

When will I see results?

Visible results are often immediate and improve over time. Measurable tightening and contouring improvements appear gradually over a two to six month time period following a single treatment session.

How long does the Thermage procedure take?

The Thermage procedure is a completely non-invasive, safe treatment that is performed only in our office. Depending on the size and location of the area to be treated, the procedure may take as little as 20 minutes or up to two hours.

How long will the effects of the Thermage procedure last?

The Thermage procedure immediately tightens existing collagen and stimulates new natural collagen production for up to six months following the treatment. Results may last for years depending on the patient's skin condition and natural aging process.

Is the Thermage procedure safe?

The Thermage procedure has an excellent safety record. With over 450,000 estimated worldwide patient treatments to date, the reported incidence of side effects is less than 0.2%. The most frequently reported incidents are classified as swelling, redness, bumps, and blisters on or around the treated area. These side effects have disappeared in a few days or weeks. A rare (<0.04%) but longer lasting side effect described as a surface irregularity has been reported.
