One of the latest treatments that has been catching a lot of attention today is Thermage CPT. This is third generation equipment that treats the skin from wrinkles on the arms, legs, face, and abdomen. But for a more objective look, here is a list of the pros and cons to this treatment.
PROS OF THE TREATMENT
One of the best things about Thermage CPT is that it is a non-invasive treatment which is able to tighten and contour the skin. It fights the aging process without having to submit your skin or your body to possible infection and complications brought by surgical treatments.
#2 Less down time
With it being non-invasive there is no need for any recovery times with Thermage CPT. After the treatment you can immediately return to your normal daily routine. This is a far cry from the weeks that you have to stay in to wait for wounds to heal, swelling to subside, and bruising to disappear.
#3 It effectively fights the signs of aging fast
The radiofrequency technology employed in Thermage uniformly heats the underlying skin layers. It works on the network of collagen by tightening them. This results to decreased sagging, an improved skin texture and minimized wrinkles.
#4 Improves with time
The effects of Thermage CPT improves over time, which means that after one session the skin tightening action still takes place. A couple of sessions are often required by the doctor for optimum results.

#5 Last for years
Depending on the skin of an individual and the aging process, the positive effects of Thermage CPT can last one for many years to come. Experts claim that results can last up to 24 months or more.
#6 No pain
The major improvement with this latest equipment is that it does not cause any pain compared to its predecessors. Since pain is one of the complains that patients have, describing it as similar to being repeatedly snapped with a hot elastic band, developers see to it that they make this new machine gentler on the skin.
#7 Natural-looking results
Compared to the more drastic effect of surgical face lifts, the result of Thermage CPT creates a more subtle outcome. There is no chance of getting that overstretched look or a permanent startled expression. Other people won’t notice a change but rather, an improvement.
CONS OF THERMAGE CPT
#1 Works only for certain patients
One thing that one must consider with Thermage CPT is that it is not advisable for those who have advanced skin aging. Since the action of the treatment is subtle the results are less dramatic which is only appropriate for those who have minimal or early stage wrinkles.
One of the major concerns with Thermage CPT is the cost. In the US the price range can run around $1,000-$5,000 per session.
#3 Some side effects
With less competent hands, there is a good chance that this treatment can result to blisters, light burns and scabbing.
#4 Results are unpredictable for each person
Since every individual’s reaction to treatments is different, the results of Thermage CPT may also vary. There is a good chance that it can tighten the skin in one person and a longer time for the others.
