What is Thermage CPT Treatment?
Thermage Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) system by Solta Medical is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deeper, collagen-rich layers of the skin. This applied heat then causes collagen to contract and encourages new collagen production, which results in smoother skin after just one treatment with results that continue to improve over time.
Over 1 million Thermage CPT treatments have been performed worldwide. Unlike a facelift, Thermage treatments have allowed patients to treat and reduce the signs of aging, including mild laxity, wrinkled skin on the face and neck in a non-surgical way.
As the global leader in non-surgical skin tightening treatments, Thermage utilizes radiofrequency energy and Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) to deliver powerful doses of energy deep within the skin’s collagen layer to promote a rebuilding and remodelling of collagen bonds.
