What is Thermage CPT?
Thermage CPT is a non-invasive treatment performed by Marina Buckley, MD that helps skin by tightening existing collagen and stimulating new collagen formation (neocolagenisis) and renewing facial contours. Since collagen is a key building block that provides structure to your skin, having healthy collagen is important in achieving the youthful look you desire. The procedure uses patented radio frequency technology that is clinically proven to tighten and lift skin to smooth out wrinkles. It is incision-free, can be performed on all skin types, and requires no needles or downtime from normal daily activities. Thermage CPT is gaining more public awareness in the treatment’s ability to tighten loose skin anywhere on the body. It can be used post-pregnancy and pre or post-liposuction to tighten the areas that exercise cannot help. Thermage CPT is effective on the face, eyelids and virtually anywhere on the body.
If you are looking for a lift for sagging skin or to treat wrinkles on your face, neck or cleavage area without having to take time off work for recovery, then Ultherapy® is for you! Ultherapy® is a non-invasive anti-aging procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten skin, leaving you with younger looking skin without the risks and downtime associated with traditional face lift or neck lift surgery.
Ultherapy® is a safe and proven treatment cleared by the FDA to lift skin in the areas of the eyebrow, face, neck and under the chin, as well as treat lines and wrinkles on the chest or neckline. Only one Ultherapy® treatment is needed to significantly reduce the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, as well as tighten loose skin, with results improving over time. Patients love this procedure because it can be performed during a lunch hour (dependent on the treatment area), allowing you to return to normal activities immediately following the treatment.
ThermiTight®, a micro-invasive radiofrequency technology used to tighten loose and wrinkly skin, is ideal for the neck area, where visible aging often first occurs, according to Dr. Richard Buckley. “ThermiTight® treatment gently lifts, tightens and rejuvenates skin,” he says. “It works differently than Thermage, in that we deliver ThermiTight®’s energy using a tiny electrode inserted under the skin. The electrode targets the tissue, which in this case is the neck area, resulting in immediate, as well as ongoing tightening.”
ThermiTight is not a laser. Laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skin and underlying structures such as veins. RF energy stimulates the production of collagen, which supports the skin, from within. ThermiTight can be used to tighten the skin of the face, neck, back, chest, arms and legs.
Venus Freeze technology is yet another option in neck and body skin tightening. The technology not only tightens skin, but also diminishes wrinkles and contours for a shapelier skin surface. “Venus Freeze incorporates multi-polar radio frequency and magnetic pulsed fields in one device,” Dr. Marina Buckley says. “It, too, causes a thermal, or heat, reaction in the tissue. The body responds with its natural healing process, which includes forming new collagen and elastin. When we treat the neck with Venus Freeze, the skin on the neck emerges looking and feeling firmer, healthier and more youthful.”
NuEra Tight uses radio-frequency energy to treat skin laxity on the face and body, as well as improve the appearance of cellulite. A comfortable NuEra Tight treatment can be administered on the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, bra and back fat, as well as around the eyes, mouth, cheeks and neck. NuEra Tight can also deliver lymphatic massages to increase local circulation and lymphatic drainage after procedures, such as laser liposuction, CoolSculpting to help with healing, reduce swelling, detoxify the bodyn and enhance results.
