Treatment Information

The development of Thermage CPT has taken Thermage skin tightening, also referred to as Thermacool, to a new level. This recent development offers improved results, allowing greater levels of radio-frequency energy to be delivered more comfortably.

The Comfort Pulsed Technology (CPT) delivers a gentle vibration sensation with cool bursts of air, making sure the treatment delivery is as comfortable as possible. Improved patient comfort encourages greater results, allowing skin firming energy to all areas being treated.

What Areas Can Be Treated?

Depending on your skin specialist’s advice and recommendations, the following areas can be treated via Thermage CPT treatments:

  • Face
  • Hands
  • Arm
  • Thighs
  • Knees
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

What Does It Do?

Thermage treatment is specifically designed to help:

  • Tighten skin
  • Minimise the appearance of cellulite or damaged skin
  • Soften fine lines and wrinkles
  • Redefine body contours

The Treatment Procedure

During treatment, individuals may experience tolerable sensations of warmth, followed by a cooling spray which is delivered by the unit before, during and after the treatment tip makes contact with the skin.

On average, treatments take 30 – 90 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

What Is The After Care Procedure?

Following the treatment, most individuals return to their regular activities. Patients may experience mild to moderate skin flushing, however, this will subside within an hour after treatment. Most patients have also stated feeling a slight aching along and around the treated area. This too is common, and there is no special after treatment care needed, apart from the recommendation of an effective sunscreen application in order to prolong the result.

How Long Does It Last?

Results are long lasting in comparison to other available cellulite treatments, and range between one and two years. Some case results can be seen from as quick as two months, with continued improvement over four to six months.
