The new non-surgical Thermage CPT procedure uses radio frequency to tighten, contour & lift the face, neck, eyelids abdomen, thighs and other problem areas, says Dr. Kong. "The new device provides better results with more patient comfort than previous Thermage treatments."
Online PR News – 06-August-2012 – San Francisco, CA – San Francisco, CA - “The classic signs of the aging face are wrinkling and sagging of the skin, loose eyelid skin and lowering of the eyebrows” says Dr. Sheena Kong. “That’s why we recently introduced Thermage CPT, an FDA approved non-surgical procedure using radio frequency that can improve skin tone and appearance on many areas of the body.”
The Thermage CPT face treatment can reduce forehead wrinkles and restore better contours of the cheeks, jawline and neck. When it is combined with Thermage eye treatment, the overall result is a noticeable but natural-looking rejuvenation.
“Thermage CPT is the latest version of the Thermage procedure. “CPT stands for ‘Comfort Pulse Technology’. Older generations of the device such as ThermaCool caused discomfort requiring patients to take pain medication during the treatment, but Thermage CPT is a painless procedure,” says Dr. Kong. “In addition, the Thermage CPT system has enhanced radio frequency technology for better collagen stimulation which yields much more effective skin rejuvenation with predictable results.”
According to Dr. Kong, the aging process gradually breaks down the skin’s collagen, but Thermage CPT treatment stimulates existing collagen while it promotes new collagen growth. “Since aging is inevitable, treatments may also be done as a preventative measure to protect someone who is in their 30s or 40s from aging of the skin,” says Dr. Kong. “I believe that Thermage CPT is a great procedure for anybody who is between the age of 30 to their 70’s.”
Dr. Kong says that Thermage eye treatment is even more effective when combined with the Thermage CPT face treatment, which eliminates forehead wrinkles by tightening skin and lifting the eyebrows. “This is interesting because one may get rid of wrinkles on his/her forehead by having Botox injections, but many people don't realize that Botox actually relaxes the forehead muscle, which causes a flattened forehead and lowers the eyebrows,” says Dr. Kong. “Botox treatments done incorrectly can be very unnatural looking,” she says.
“Patients who have had Thermage for the eyes say that their eyelid sagging is improved and both the upper and lower eyelids are tighter. Their eyes appear more open, and many women say that their skin is also smoother after the treatment, which makes it easier for them to apply eye make-up,” says Dr. Kong.
Dr. Kong says she often combines Thermage CPT with Fraxel laser resurfacing resurfacing, Clear + Brilliant laser skin treatment, IPL, or Botox and Juvederm injections to enhance the rejuvenation effect as needed.
“Thermage CPT is also very effective for skin tightening on the abdomen, thighs, arms and other areas of the body,” says Dr. Kong. “There is no down time required after a treatment and patients can get right back to their normal activities.”
