Benefits/How It Works
Thermage® CPT, the latest revolutionary upgrade for the Thermage® skin firming system, is a powerful but non-invasive device for tightening, contouring and rejuvenating lax skin. Thermage® CPT treatment is commonly used to help tighten loose skin around the lower face and jawline but is also effective for the neck, eyes, arms, buttocks, thighs and tummy. It is a favourable recommendation for tightening of post-pregnancy tummies and to smooth cellulite for Victoria, BC patients.

Having been evaluated in a large number of peer-reviewed scientific studies, Thermage® CPT has a trusted record of delivering noticeable results to appropriate candidates. Thermage® CPT treatment is comfortable and effective for all skin types, requiring no analgesics or downtime.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Mark Lupin understands the significance of patient safety and comfort. His practice is dedicated to providing high-quality cosmetic medical care for patients on Vancouver Island.
Thermage® CPT works by using pulses of radiofrequency energy to penetrate into and beyond the dermis, deep into the fat layer to stimulate new collagen. Integrated vibration and cooling mechanisms keep patients comfortable and alleviate the need for topical and oral analgesics. With these latest advancements, preparation and treatment time is reduced and patients can return immediately to their daily routines.
The result of a Thermage® CPT treatment is renewed elasticity, tighter and smoother skin as well as improved contouring. Immediate, subtle tightening is followed by several months of more gradual, longer-lasting tightening as new collagen is formed. Patients looking for a non-surgical treatment to help lift and tighten skin around the body, neck, face and eyes or wanting to minimize the appearance of cellulite, should consider Thermage® CPT.
We offer Thermage® CPT to our Victoria, BC patients who want a short, non-invasive procedure to help fight and erase the effects of aging. Thermage® CPT works to tighten collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, which makes this an effective non-surgical treatment which patients may consider annually to stave off natural skin aging. Patients may see immediate results and improvements that last for years, depending on their skin condition and aging process.
Patients who want to improve lax skin such as jowls, heavy eyelids and loose skin on the tummy, buttocks, arms, knees or to smooth the appearance of cellulite.
Treatment is comfortable and requires no anesthesia. To offset the possible sensation of heat and to protect the outer layer of skin, the skin is cooled using the ThermaCool™ system both before and after each pulse and an integrated vibration mechanism cancels most discomfort. Certain areas may be more sensitive but the majority of patients feel very comfortable throughout the treatment.
Most patients return immediately to regular activites. Patients may experience mild swelling to the treated areas and some tenderness is expected.
Depending on the size of the area treated, Thermage® CPT may take from 30 minutes up to two hours.
While the aim is to get the most from one treatment annually, Thermage® CPT is safe enough to be repeated after several months.
