Tightening and smoothing the skin on your body and face – non-invasively – is a revolutionary idea. At Keystone Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Kimmel offer this trending treatment designed to give your skin a more youthful appearance. It’s called Thermage CPT® (comfort pulse technology).
As you age, your skin loses much of its elasticity. This happens because the production of your skin’s support structures, the proteins elastin and collagen, declines with age. Additionally, spending time in the sun unprotected against its skin damaging UV rays doesn’t help. Smoking and environmental factors also damage your skin, and before you know it, your skin is saggy where it once was firm, and wrinkly to boot.
How to tighten you skin and regain a more youthful appearance? A brow-lift or facelift are surgical alternatives. Injectables such as Botox and Juvederm can also do the job non-surgically. But we invite you to consider firming and tightening with Thermage CPT®.
What is Thermage CPT® and how does it work?
It’s a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that uses radio-frequency (RF) waves to heat the underlying collagen in the dermis layer of your skin. The radio-frequency waves don’t injure the surface layer (epidermis) of your skin because the Thermage tip remains cool while it heats the collagen below, causing it to shrink. This tightens the skin above, and encourages your body to create new collagen over the next six months. The take-away? Noticeably younger-looking and firmer skin on your face and body.
