Thermage CPT is a non-surgical facelift procedure. This procedure is considered non-surgical because it does not require any incisions or injections. The entire procedure can be done from the surface of your skin. This procedure is quite popular due to its versatile benefits, most of which have to do with cleaning the surface of your skin. It is fully capable of dealing with acne, freckles, unwanted pigment, and many other skin infractions. It also increases the collagen production within your skin cells, allowing your skin to heal back faster and smoother. The best part about the Thermage CPT device is that it does all these things without any incisions or injections. Read on to find out more about this procedure and its benefits.
How it Works
The surgeon will apply a soft cream or moisturiser to the area that is to be treated. After a few minutes, they will proceed to use the Thermage CPT device. The device will send bursts of heat that will penetrate your skin and heat the epidermal layers. This heating effect will remove a variety of surface impurities including acne, freckles, and excess pigment. The procedure will also energize the collagen fibres in your skin which will tighten and smooth out the surface. During the full heating process, a cooling tool will be used to control the heating process on your skin’s surface.
Once the procedure is complete, you will notice an immediate change. Your skin will feel a little warm and tight. You may notice that it shines more vibrantly than before as well as being smoother. Over the next two or three months, you will experience increased tightness and smoothness of the skin.
Upon completion of the procedure, many people experience redness for several days. We recommend you use some form of moisturiser twice per day to help your skin to heal faster. You should also avoid direct sunlight for several days using either sunscreen or a hat.
How Long Will It Last?
Typically you will need just one session which will take no more than fifteen minutes. The effects of this procedure usually restore your skin to a period seven to ten years prior to when you took the treatment. Assuming you have no complications, the treatment should cause your skin to begin aging in the same fashion with which it did at the time. Based on this, you should be able to enjoy your clean youthful skin for at least five or more years.
After the procedure, you will need minimal recovery time. Your skin will be tender for a few days; however, it should not affect your daily routine all that much. Simply keep your skin out of direct sunlight and apply some form of a cream. All in all the full treatment is very quick and requires very little effort to get the desired effect. Anyone who needs treatment for the surface of their skin should look into this treatment.
