Thermage® Skin Tightening | Hartford | Avon
The Thermage CPT procedure is an FDA approved method for
tightening skin and for smoothing wrinkles. This cosmetic procedure
does not require invasive surgery, chemicals, needles, or lasers.
Ideal candidates for Thermage CPT have mild to moderate facial
laxity. The Thermage CPT procedure can also be used to treat patients
who have areas of skin that are still loose after a surgical
The Thermage procedure is available only in the offices of qualified physicians who specialize in cosmetic procedures. The procedure itself is normally done as a single treatment that takes from 20 minutes to two hours depending on the treatment area. What’s more, there is no downtime — so you can quickly resume your normal routine.
Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. And unlike injections or fillers, Thermage works on your entire face — forehead, eyes, nasolabial folds, jaw line, jowls and the area under your chin.
If you no longer recognize the face looking back at you in the mirror, it’s time to schedule a consultation with our staff and learn how Thermage can help you look as young as you feel.
The term "CPT" stands for "Comfort Pulse Technology." With this technology, Thermage has become a much more comfortable and much more effective procedure for skin tightening. There are two ways in which Thermage CPT improves patient comfort. First, instead of one continuous unbroken pulse, the CPT technology breaks up the Thermage pulse into a series of micro-pulses. Second, the CPT technology delivers the Thermage pulses with vibration. The vibration reduces the sensation of heating, which also leads to improved patient comfort.
The greatly enhanced patient comfort allows us to make many more passes over the tissues. Depending on the area being treated, we now make 8-12 passes over the tissues with Thermage CPT instead of the 4-5 passes that we used to make with the earlier generation of Thermage. As a result, Thermage CPT treatments are not only much more comfortable for our clients but also much more effective than the earlier generations of Thermage.
Immediate Results: You should feel and see your skin being smoother, firmer, and tighter immediately after your Thermage treatment. You may also notice some contouring effects which will begin enhancing the shape of your face.
Continued improvement over time: After the procedure, you should continue to see improvements to your skin as a result of the production of new and increased collagen, as well as some additional contouring effects due to continued tightening over time. These effects will continue for up to six months. You should see lasting results.
