Thermage FAQ

How is Thermage CPT different from other Thermage such as NXT?
Thermage CPT (Comfort Pulse Tip) is the 3rd generation of the Thermage skin tightening systems. Thermage CPT allows greater tightening and more comfort than the previous Thermage systems. Unlike the old system where we needed to pre-medicate you to give you optimal results, there is no need to medicate you before your treatment with the CPT, thus you can achieve better results and you can drive yourself home.  

Are there any possible side effects?
Thermage has an excellent safety profile.  Side effects such as skin depressions, redness, swelling, and blisters may occur for a few weeks, but these are rare.

How many treatments are required?
You may see results in as little as one treatment. Our practationers can determine how many sessions are needed to achieve your desired results.

What are the results?

Your face will regain its youthful contour as fine lines are reduced.

How long does a Thermage® treatment take?
The Thermage procedure is a completely non-invasive, safe treatment that is performed only in a medical office. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure may take as little as 50 minutes for eyes or up to two hours on the body.

Who are candidates for Thermage®?
Thermage® is ideal for those of any skin type who want to diminish fine lines and tighten skin.

Who should avoid Thermage®?
Viral outbreaks may be triggered in those who have previous infections. Certain medications, such as Warfarin and steroids, have additional risks. Women who are breast feeding or pregnant are advised to wait as a precautionary measure.

Is additional treatment necessary?

Results will eventually diminish, at which point you may seek additional treatment.

What are the limitations of Thermage®?
Not everyone will have a dramatic improvement as a result of Thermage®. Additional sessions may be necessary, or alternate treatment may be preferable.
