Thermage™ CPT Non-Surgical Facelift is a non-invasive and FDA-approved aesthetic treatment that uses controlled radiofrequency to improve the effects of skin damage and skin ageing.
It stimulates the skin’s natural process and the treatment encourages collagen production, which helps smoothen and rejuvenate the skin.
Thermage CPT is a skin tightening treatment that makes it possible to restore the skin’s firmness and smoothness without the need for surgery or injections and requires minimal to no downtime.
A lot of individuals desire a youthful and healthy-looking skin that they are willing to drop the cash to achieve it. However, our skin’s ability to produce collagen, the protein that is responsible for giving its strength and tightness, diminishes as we naturally age making it more challenging.
Thermage™ CPT is a suitable treatment of choice for those who want to achieve a subtle and natural-looking result without the “over-done look”. Also, it is an alternative to invasive and expensive surgical facelifts. 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 is a device that delivers and targets the radiofrequency energy 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 colours.
