Thermage® CPT Eyes
In the natural process of ageing, collagen fibres in your skin layers lose their elasticity. This leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. The body also stops producing new collagen.
Thermage Comfort Pulsed Technology (CPT) Eyes smoothens, tightens and contours the skin around the eyes by using radiofrequency (RF) energy. It also reduces wrinkles and lessens hooding in the eye area, giving you a naturally youthful appearance. On top of that, your skin tone and texture will be improved to accentuate your new look, and you will have more beautiful looking eyes.
You will be happy to know that Thermage CPT Eyes is a safe treatment cleared by the FDA. It is also a non-invasive and non-surgical procedure.
How it works
Thermage CPT uses RF to heat the skin, and this tightens collagen fibres that have become loose and stretched over the years. This deep-heating technology makes your skin smoother and firmer, by stimulating the production of new collagen, improving your appearance with a more vibrant look.
The device’s hand-piece delivers pulses of RF energy from the tip when it is pressed gently against your skin. In this process, energy penetrates deep into the skin. The RF energy heats the collagen fibres in the dermis and subcutaneous layers of the skin, while the tip cools and protects the skin’s surface from damage.
The Thermage treatment areas include excess skin on the upper or lower eyelid, eyelids which have developed a crepey texture, and fine lines around the eyes.
At the beginning of the treatment, the skin is cooled for the safety and comfort of the surface. The handheld device’s tip is placed on the treatment area. Then the RF energy does its magic by penetrating deep into the skin to heat the area. The cooling of the epidermis is done by applying cryogen.
1. Treatment begins with a cooling effect on the skin for comfort and safety of surface layers.
2. A specially designed treatment tip is placed against the skin in targeted areas.
3. Radio frequency energy penetrates deep into the skin’s tissue, heating the treatment areas and remodeling the collagen.
4. Final delivery of cryogen to cool the epidermis.
Who is Suitable to Undergo the Treatment?
If you have any of the following – mild-to-moderate crepey skin texture, wrinkles, eye hooding, fine lines or crow’s feet – you are suitable to undergo the Thermage CPT Eye treatment. The ideal age for this procedure is between 35 and 60 years of age, and the candidate should not have excessive sun damage on the skin.
