It’s even better than it was in the past
Perhaps the downside of gaining wisdom and experience through time, is the time that wears into our skin. As we age, our skin inevitably loses elasticity and it starts to sag and become loose. Sagging skin is often seen as these marks of aging: deeper laughter lines, flatter cheeks, an increase in wrinkles under the eyes or around the cheeks, drooping or puffier eyelids, lower eyebrows, and a squarish face or the loss of the V-line.
When the larger areas of our face begin to sag, it affects the rest of our facial features. For example, the signs of aging around our eye areas is often caused by the loss of elasticity in our forehead’s skin, while bulldog-like cheeks are from sagging cheeks. There’s nothing that gives away our age like sagging skin.
The cure for sagging skin
Since droopy skin is caused by poor elasticity from dwindling collagen and elastin, the remedy is to boost the production of both proteins. Many treatments are available in the market but the gold standard of stimulating the natural process of collagen and elastin synthesis is Thermage CPT. It is the most well known brand worldwide and the dominant brand in US and Europe.
Apart from its glimmering track record worldwide, the actual experience is more than enough reason to opt for Thermage CPT over other anti-aging skin treatments. There is no downtime after the treatment, at most your skin may experience transient redness but it will subside in less than a day. It is also non-invasive. Thermage CPT feels like a hot stone massage on your face and its latest version is a much more comfortable experience than previous versions. The intensity of the treatment is adjusted to the tolerance level of the patient and even with low settings, the same results can still be achieved by firing more shots at low intensities.
For over 10 years, Thermage has pioneered the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles using radio frequency. A single session can already deliver results and its targeted and effective treatment can address various signs of aging.
How Thermage works
The treatment begins with a cooling effect on the skin for comfort and safety of your skin’s surface layers. Then, a specially designed treatment tip is placed against the skin in targeted areas. The radiofrequency energy penetrates deep into the tissue of the skin, heating the treatment areas and remodeling the collagen. Treatment ends with a final delivery of cryogen to cool the top layer of the skin.
You may notice an immediate lifting effect right after the treatment but optimum results will be seen in the next three to six months following the treatment. Since the treatment promotes collagen and elastin production, the more it produces, the better skin performs and looks. The change will be gradual, which will appear natural to your daily circle but quite remarkable, to those whom you only see periodically.
