Skin Tightening and Contouring with ThermageCPTTM
ThermageCPTTM is one of Niranlada’s non-surgical skin tightening procedures for loose skin, giving you a smoother and more youthful appearance. Because there is no surgery involved, you will experience virtually no downtime and should be able to resume normal activities immediately following the treatment.
This treatment works by delivering radio-frequency energy in a form of heat into the skin, which causes immediate tightening of collagen. New collagen then forms over time, resulting in additional tightening. With no special care needed after treatment, most patients can return to their daily routine right after the treatment. Redness or minor swelling may occur but should disappear quickly. ThermageCPTTM received clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration in July 2002
How long does each treatment take?
Including time to prepare your skin, the treatment takes from 20 minutes up to an hour. The total time depends on the size of the area that needs to be treated.
How soon will I see results?
Although some patients see results immediately, most individuals see results gradually over time within 2 to 6 months.
How long will the results last?
Experienced physicians report that results may last up to 2 years depending on the patient’s natural aging process.
How many treatments will I need?
It typically takes just one treatment to achieve a good result. However, some patients may choose to have a second treatment to obtain additional tightening. The skin will continue to improve over 6 months as new collagen is formed.
Does it hurt?
When the energy is applied, you will feel an intense but brief heating sensation. To protect the surface of your skin and keep you comfortable, a cooling spray is delivered before, during and after each application.
Can I get ThermageCPTTM instead of a facelift?
If you would like modest tightening of your skin without surgery then ThermageCPTTM may be right for you, but it won’t provide the dramatic results of a surgical facelift. The doctors at Niranlada will be happy to discuss the different approaches with you during your consultation.
