Thermage CPT Skin Tightening: A Non-Surgical Face Lift


Patients can enjoy results similar to a facelift without worrying about the risks and downtime of surgery with skin tightening from Thermage CPT.

When wrinkles become an issue, many women want to see an improvement but want to avoid going under the knife for a surgical procedure. Thermage CPT offers patients a skin tightening option that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten the skin so that patients can see marked improvement without much discomfort and without the risks and downtime of surgery.

Thermage uses radio frequency to deliver heat to the skin, stimulating the growth of new collagen which tightens and firms the skin. There have been several different versions of the device and the latest offers patients greater comfort. "Thermage has been in development for quite a few years," says Boca Raton Thermage specialist Dr. Janee Steinberg. "Each year there seems to be an advance in Thermage technology. Now, the latest is the Thermage CPT which is comfort pulse technology." There is a vibration with each pulse of the machine that adds comfort for the patient, as well as cooling bursts so that patients tolerate the treatment much easier.

According to Dr. Steinberg, there is improved tightening around the eyes and the jawline with Thermage CPT because she can make the settings higher thanks to the cooling. Also, Dr. Steinberg says there are more pulses possible with this new design so she can do a better job with tightening up the jowl and the neck.

Dr. Steinberg says, "This is the non-surgical facelift technique and can be used on any color skin, and on men or on women." Patients often prefer procedures such as these that enable them to have an improvement without missing work or suffering through weeks of healing. With Thermage CPT, patients can expect little to no downtime at all and they'll typically see final results in 3-6 months as the collagen continues to heal.
