Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that provides subtle skin tightening and contouring. It absolutely works, but it isn’t surgery so no one should expect the same results as with surgery. Anyone who expects dramatic skin tightening is going to be disappointed. People choose Thermage because they want skin tightening without the risks of surgery, without the downtime, and without anyone knowing they have had anything done. They also choose Thermage to postpone or prevent the need for surgery, or to maintain their surgical results.
Thermage CPT is different from previous versions of Thermage. There is more cooling of the skin surface and more energy delivered with each pulse. More energy means a more effective treatment. There is also vibration with each pulse, and between the vibration and the increased cooling the treatment is quite comfortable. Patients do not need any pain medication and report that the treatments do not hurt. Thermage CPT gives a more comfortable, more effective treatment.
