Have you ever wished you could erase years of aging? If so, you’re not alone. According to a study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than half of Americans aged 18 to 29 are interested in plastic surgery. Fortunately, there are many ways to achieve skin rejuvenation without surgery—including Thermage CPT (collagen stimulation treatment). Thermage is a noninvasive procedure that uses heat and light to stimulate collagen production. The results are visible and often result in a more youthful appearance. At Aesthetica Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Centre, we offer Thermage CPT in Dubai for skin rejuvenation. Contact us today to learn more!
What are the benefits of Thermage CPT?
Thermage CPT is an FDA-cleared, noninvasive laser technology that uses short bursts of near-infrared light to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and scars. Thermage CPT is typically used in combination with other treatments such as facelift or fillers to achieve the most dramatic results.
How does Thermage CPT work?
Thermage CPT is a highly advanced and safe laser technology that uses light energy to treat skin conditions. It uses a special light source that is less damaging than other lasers and results in less downtime, redness, and scars. The Thermage CPT Dubai procedure begins by numbing the treated area with an anesthetic. After the area is numb, the doctor will use a guide wand to place the light on your skin. The LED light source emits short pulses of energy that are targeted at the underlying problem areas on your skin, which cause collagen production to decline and stimulate cell regeneration.
Who is a candidate for Thermage CPT?
Thermage CPT is a new, non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to heat the skin and stimulate collagen production. The Radio Frequency heating effect promotes dermal regeneration and collagen production leading to firmer, smoother skin. Thermage CPT is ideal for patients who have moderate to severe wrinkles and age spots. The treatment can be used on the face, neck, hands, arms, legs and any other areas of the body that need some level of improvement. The first type is called a “static” treatment. In this procedure, the patient lies still while the Thermage machine delivers brief bursts of radiofrequency energy to the treated area. The static treatment takes about an hour and results in minor sedation. The second type is called a “thermal balloon” treatment. In this procedure, a warm air balloon filled with gas is attached to the Thermage machine and inflated over the treated area. The thermal balloon therapy heats up the tissue below it, causing localized painless inflammation and rapid collagen production. This type of treatment takes about 30 minutes and results in moderate sedation. The third type is called a “friable probe” treatment. In this procedure, a small metal probe called a friable probe is placed over the treated area.
