Only one session with this new radiofrequency device is enough to eliminate skin-sagging, to strengthen and lift the skin and thus enhance the beauty of face and body.
Thermage CPT System has just arrived to the Spanish market, although in the U.S.A. it is already the most required medical aesthetic treatment, almost at the same level that Botox enjoys, thanks to its astonishing results in face and body reshaping.
Thermage CPT System is the most advanced radiofrequency device to tighten the skin and reshaping the body, a non-invasive system that achieves results in only one session. The new Thermage device is the evolution of the old Terma Cool, but due to a series of improvements, it provides much more and better services. It includes important developments, such as a vibratory head and CPT patented technology. With these developments, the treatment’s unpleasant aspects have been eliminated. Besides, better results can be achieved in shorter treatments.
Thermage is able to restore the skin tone and to tighten the wrinkled, leathery and sagging skin in the face, but also the skin in those areas such as the stomach, the arms and the buttocks. Its new heads allow the system to work in big body areas, reducing the treatment to half of the initial time.
How does it work?
Thermage uses a patented radiofrequency technology, exclusive in the market, Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT), which warms up different skin layers and thus stimulates collagen’s synthesis. The technical innovation this device offers lies in its new head, which, contrary to former technologies, does convey a greater heating intensity to the deepest skin layers, granting the achievement of better results. Furthermore, the system’s head, unique in the market, vibrates continually, which not only numbs the skin, but also cheats the nervous system, that is by this means unable to recognize the heating stimulus. The reason is that if the nervous system receives different stimuli, heat and vibrations, it gets distracted or confused and doesn’t know which one to pay attention to.
Its new applicators, in diverse sizes, reach body parts which had been almost impossible to work on until now, such as belly or thighs.
What kind of results can I get?
After Thermage treatment, collagen and elastin production is stimulated. This treatment ‘replaces’ the face that has lost strength and smoothness, tightens wrinkled, leathery and sagging face skin, as well as stomach and thighs. It mitigates cellulitis in stomach and thighs and improves the so called ‘orange skin’.
Results can be seen at the very first session and improve until six months after the treatment’s application, lasting about 3 years. No other facial treatment is able to maintain results, without needing renewals, for such a long time. After every session it’s possible to continue normal daily routine; the treatment can be applied indistinctly of the year’s season, the skin type and color, and it’s not necessary to avoid sun exposure.
Does it hurt or ache?
No, and this is its main advantage. Thermage has a special system head, which allows continuous vibration. This achieves a double goal: the skin is lightly numbed, and the nervous system is cheated, so that it doesn’t recognize the heating stimulus. Whenever the nervous system receives two different stimuli, heat and vibrations, it gets confused and doesn’t know which one to pay attention to. Thus, there is no need of local anesthesia or other chemicals, and we can apply the treatment in vast areas.
How many sessions are required?
Only one session is enough. After it, first results can be perceived, because the treatment causes a lifting effect, which disappears with time. 80% of the results can be seen from the sixth month onwards, perhaps a little bit later in the body, and they improve gradually until a year goes by. The treatment’s effects last approximately three years and need no further checking or improvements.
Does the treatment have any secondary effects?
No secondary effects. In fact, this treatment is one of the so called lunch time treatments, because after each session it is possible to continue daily routine normally. It can be applied any time, in every season and it’s not necessary to avoid sun exposure.
At what age is this treatment recommended?
Generally speaking, it’s advisable to be 35 or 40 years old at least to undergo this treatment, since at that time one can perceive that skin begins to lose its strength and smoothness and to sag. This is the perfect preventive treatment.
