THERMAGE CPT TREATMENT (SKIN TIGHTENING) INFORMATION

thermage

DLK is proud to offer the innovative new Thermage Total Tip on the CPT platform which represents a leap forward in skin tightening technology.  Thermage works by lifting, contouring and remodeling your skin’s collagen for smoother, tighter, younger looking skin.

Thermage Total Tip is a highly effective treatment for the face and neck as well as other body treatments that offers early visible improvement and long-term results.  Targeted, uniform, bulk heating is delivered safely with as much as two times more power for even better results than ever. The system offers superior results and greater patient comfort by using the proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology™ and a vibrating handpiece for more comfortable treatments and improved efficacy.

Thermage Treatment uses radiofrequency energy deposited deep in the skin to alter damaged collagen and stimulate collagen remodeling to treat skin conditions such as wrinkles, skin laxity, photo damage and scars. The effect is an immediate tightening and lifting of the skin and underlying tissue which increases up to 6 months. Unlike lasers, Thermage works on all skin types and tones. And unlike injections or fillers, Thermage works on your entire face: forehead, eyes, nasolabial folds, jaw line, jowls and the area under your chin.

TREATMENT BENEFITS:

  • Thermage is a safe, clinically proven way to tighten and contour skin, with improvements in tone, contour, and texture occurring naturally through the stimulation of your own collagen.
  • Radiofrequency energy has been used in medical devices for many years.
  • A single treatment tightens your existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth.
  • Improvements are both immediately visible and continue up to six months.
  • Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and aging process.

THE TREATMENT: 
The Thermage procedure is available only in the offices of qualified physicians who specialize in cosmetic procedures. The procedure itself is normally done as a single treatment that takes from 20 minutes to two hours depending on the treatment area. What’s more, there is no downtime, so you can quickly resume your normal routine. There is no sedation or anesthesia required due to the CPT handpiece.

During the treatment, you’ll feel a brief, heat sensation each time Thermage delivers radiofrequency energy to the underlayer of your skin. This indicates that your collagen is being stimulated and tightened. After treatment, your skin may be slightly red for a day or two. But most people resume regular activities immediately after treatment, with no downtime or special follow-up care.

THE TECHNOLOGY:
To understand how Thermage works, it helps to know a little about how your skin works. The facial skin is made up of three distinct layers: a visible outer layer on the surface called the epidermis, a collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis, and an inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer, also known as the fat layer that has a web of collagen fibers running through it. When the collagen in these three layers breaks down due to sun exposure, family heredity, or the normal aging process, your face begins to sag and wrinkle.

Naturally, treatments that work on just the surface can’t do anything to restore the collagen in the underlayer or the innerlayer of your skin. Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure available that tightens and renews your skin’s collagen in all three layers.

How? Thermage’s unique Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. And the improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment due to new collagen growth.

THE RESULTS:
Women 35-60 normally have the best and most predictable results. If your skin is too lax, the results will not be as dramatic. You should feel and see your skin being smoother, firmer, and tighter immediately after your Thermage treatment. You may also notice some contouring effects which will begin enhancing the shape of your face. You should continue to see improvements to your skin as a result of the production of new and increased collagen, as well as some additional contouring effects due to continued tightening over time.

These effects will continue for up to six months and can last for years depending on your skin condition and aging process.
