Thermage™ CPT Singapore
Non-Surgical Facelift Procedure
Fight the signs of aging with Thermage without needles, surgery or downtime.
Thermage CPT Non-Surgical Facelift is a non-invasive and FDA-approved aesthetic treatment that uses controlled radio frequency to reduce the eminent signs of aging.
It stimulates the skin’s natural process and ability to renew collagen production, which helps tighten, smoothen and rejuvenate the skin.
Thermage CPT is a revolutionary skin tightening treatment that makes it possible to restore the skin’s firmness and smoothness without the need for surgery or injections and requires very minimal to no downtime.
A flawless, smooth and young-looking skin is certainly what every person wants to have. However, our skin’s ability to produce collagen, the protein that is responsible for giving its strength and tightness, diminishes as we naturally age leaving us with a wrinkled and sagging skin.
Thermage CPT is an excellent treatment of choice for those who want to achieve a subtle and natural-looking result without the obvious outcome of an “over-done look”. Also, it is a cheaper alternative to the more invasive and expensive surgical facelift. It is also the perfect solution for those who have wanted to win the battle against aging in which anti-aging creams are not able to provide the intended results and cosmetic surgery is out of the question.
Thermage CPT uses a machine that delivers and targets the radio frequency to the deeper layers of the skin, which excites and activates the production of new collagen. It is a safe alternative for anyone who has mild to moderate laxity to the skin and works well on all skin types and colors.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Find the answers you are looking for! Read our FAQ’s on Thermage Skin Tightening Treatment.
1. How does Thermage work?
Thermage CPT uses a handheld device that delivers radiofrequency and safely heats the collagen fibers deep within the inner layers of the skin, which overtime, remodels new collagen to tighten and contour the skin. The outer layer of the skin is protected with a cooling spray before and after each pulse, to reduce the slight heating sensation and making the entire procedure comfortable and pain-free.
A topical anesthetic cream will be applied prior to the procedure to lessen the heating sensation you will experience during the procedure. Also, your doctor will constantly monitor the heat that is being delivered to ensure that you do not take too much heat during the treatment.
2. How is Thermage different from other skin tightening treatments?
There are quite a number of other non-invasive treatments, like laser and ultrasound technology, that provide skin-tightening benefits. However, no other treatment targets the deeper layers of the skin like Thermage does. It heats the innermost layers of the skin, making a highly effective treatment in stimulating the collagen regrowth, which is responsible in giving a smoother and more radiant skin result.
3. Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients may experience a slight discomfort. But, the latest generation of Thermage uses the Comfort Pulse Technology or CPT, which breaks down the radio frequency into several pulses. So, the pain and discomfort is greatly diminished compared to the older generations of Thermage.
4. Do I have to worry about recovery and downtime?
Since the treatment is non-ablative and the action happens under the skin, the outer surface is untouched and undamaged. This allows for patients to immediately return to their daily routine or resume other activities, like exercising. Slight swelling, redness or bruising may be experienced within the treated area, however, these side effects happen in extremely rare cases.
This means that you literally do not have to worry about the recovery and healing process that occurs with surgical procedures.
5. How long does the Thermage treatment take?
Thermage CPT only takes about 45 to 90 minutes to perform the entire procedure, making it an excellent skin tightening treatment of choice for busy people who are constantly on the go. After-care treatment will only include continuing with your basic skincare regimen, which comprises of cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliation and sun screen protection.
6. How many treatments are needed?
It only takes one treatment to accomplish astonishing and natural-looking results.
7. How soon will I see the results?
Although a few patients show immediate improvement, response to treatment for most patients is gradual with progressive improvement over 1 to 6 months. (Dover et. al, 2007).
