This nonsurgical facelift will actually transform skin all over your body. The Thermage CPT thermal lift will tighten loose skin on the eyelids, under-eye areas, abdomen, arms, legs and even your sagging buttocks. Thermage CPT, the most effective lift treatment for a multitude of concerns, yields dramatic results without incisions and recuperation.
In the eye area, for instance, Thermage CPT reduces “hooding,” improves texture, and tones and softens fine lines and crow’s feet. This new treatment is a safe, effective and unique option for “eyelid rejuvenation.” Thermage CPT is also being used to reduce the excess wrinkling and sagging of skin on the hands. The Body Shape procedure is ideal for men and women who are looking to help firm sagging skin and reduce unwanted bulges that dieting and exercise alone cannot seem to change.
This FDA-approved procedure was touted as the first nonsurgical facelift and is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments in use today, especially for eyelid rejuvenation. Thermage CPT/Thermal Lift procedure, which is also known as Thermal Lifting, Therma Plasty and Thermoplastic Contouring, is accomplished by using controlled radio frequency energy to tighten tissue and collagen. With aging, collagen production slows, causing skin to become loose and sag. Thermage CPT causes the collagen to “tighten,” thereby reducing skin laxity and wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions
How will I look right after the treatment? Are there any side effects?
Most patients experience some redness which goes away in a few hours. Dr. Covey personally oversees this treatment to ensure minimal risks and a positive, more youthful outcome for you.
How soon are results noticeable? How long do the results last?
Initial results are visible within a few weeks as tightening, smoothing and improved tone and texture are seen in the treated areas. The long-term results occur over time as the healthier collagen tightens and wrinkles lessen. Studies show that the results can last from several months to several years, depending upon the individual aging process.
How many Thermage CPT treatments are required, and how much do they cost?
One single treatment can produce excellent results, but some patients may require more. We generally recommend one treatment to each specific area being treated. Cost varies and is determined by the extent of your procedure, as it is customized just for you.
When can I return to my normal routine?
Immediately. Remember, this is a nonsurgical procedure and there is usually no downtime. You may experience some redness, but this usually resolves itself shortly after the treatment.
Is Thermage CPT safe?
It is very safe. The ThermaCool TC system by Thermage CPT that we use at East End Laser Care is FDA approved. Before receiving FDA approval, Thermage CPT treatment was approved by the Canadian HPB as a nonsurgical browlift and for nonsurgical tightening of periorbital (around the eyes) wrinkles and facial wrinkles.
How is Thermage CPT done?
The main structural component of the skin is a protein called collagen, which provides the skin with its strength. As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, causing sagging, wrinkles and loss of facial contour. The Thermage CPT procedure uses patented radio frequency technology to create a precisely controlled zone of heating in the dermis (deep layer of the skin) and in the underlying tissue. At the same time, the epidermis (visible outer skin) is protected by continual cooling. This heating causes the collagen to tighten, thereby reducing skin laxity and wrinkles and renewing the contour of the face and other treated body areas. Thermage CPT treatment also causes new collagen production to occur over time. Thermage CPT is the best noninvasive, nonsurgical method available today to effectively tighten loose skin and achieve a nonsurgical lift.
Where is Thermage CPT performed and how long does it take?
These procedures are done in our offices on an outpatient basis. Generally, Thermage CPT treatments take less than an hour, but the time will vary based on the size of the area being treated.
How does Thermage CPT compare to Titan?
Thermage CPT is FDA approved for treating certain wrinkles, and can achieve in a single treatment what may take Titan several treatments. Also, it uses RF (radiofrequency), which is proven to treat wrinkles. Last, Thermage has a much longer track record.
What does Thermage CPT feel like? Is it painful?
No, it is not painful. Our patients usually experience a brief hot sensation followed by an immediate cool sensation. This is caused by the pulsing from the radio frequency instrument used to perform this procedure. Your comfort is our primary concern.
