What is Thermage CPT?
Thermage Comfort Pulse Technology (CPT) Body is a non-invasive body contouring solution for loose skin and wrinkles. Thermage CPT utilises radiofrequency energy to contour, smooth, and tighten loose skin for a naturally youthful appearance. This is a safe and FDA-approved treatment, and Privé Clinic is one of the medical aesthetic centres offering Thermage CPT in Singapore.
How Does It Work?
As we age, our skin gets thinner and more fragile because of reduced collagen production. When our body loses its ability to produce new collagen, our skin eventually loses its elasticity and firmness, causing it to sag. The anti-ageing technology of Thermage CPT combats this collagen loss by stimulating collagen growth for smoother and more supple skin.
Thermage directs radiofrequency (RF) energy deep into the skin’s tissue to heat the deep dermis. This uniform heating effect promotes new collagen production, on top of remodelling existing collagen fibres. Thermage CPT builds on the Thermage technology, with greater efficacy and comfort than before. The Comfort Pulse Technology enhances patient comfort because of its built-in cooling and vibration technology.
The RF heat energy pulses are alternated with cooling bursts, creating a sensation that is confusing to the nervous system. This is known as Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) Therapy, a proven pain relief method. As the cooling sensation interrupts the heat pulses, it disrupts the sending of discomfort and pain signals, leading to improved comfort levels.
In addition, Privé Clinic can enlist an anaesthetist to ensure minimal discomfort during this treatment, but this is entirely optional.
1. Treatment begins with a cooling effect on the skin for comfort and safety of surface layers
2. A specially designed treatment tip is placed against the skin in targeted areas
3. Radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment areas and remodeling the collagen
4. Final delivery of cryogen to cool the epidermis
Benefits of Thermage CPT Body
As a non-invasive body contouring option for skin tightening, Thermage CPT Body provides an alternative solution to tighten loose skin and treat signs of ageing without needles or surgery. The results are not as dramatic as with surgery, but it is preferable for those looking for a more subtle and natural post-treatment appearance. Unlike laser treatment, Thermage CPT is also suitable for all skin tones and skin types.
Safety & Side Effects
Aside from mild discomfort during the procedure, you should not experience any pain or discomfort after. There might be some redness or slight swelling, but it will subside after a few hours. With little to no downtime, you can resume your normal activities after the treatment with no disruption to your daily routine. The effects of a Thermage CPT procedure are gradual, with results taking up to six months to show.
