What is Thermage?
Thermage CPT is a unique radio frequency non-invasive treatment proven to help improve the appearance of your sagging skin or loose skin, giving you a smoother, tighter, youthful look and feel by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Thermage is designed to be a single treatment and delivers a natural-looking result. Patients often tell us that following Thermage treatment they get compliments on how well and rested they’re looking; friends and family can’t quite figure out why they’re looking so good!
At The Skin to Love Clinic we are able to draw upon a huge wealth of expertise and experience as one of our practitioners is the trainer to other medical practitioners using Thermage in the UK and Europe.
Suitable for both males and females, this non-invasive radiofrequency therapy is customised to address your specific concerns of ageing on your eyes, neck, face and body. Thermage® triggers your skin to regenerate your collagen deep within and actually stimulates the production of new collagen in the treated area which makes it a great skin tightening treatment without needing any surgery.
Designed for only needing one treatment, this non-surgical skin tightening option fits easily into your routine as there is no downtime; perfect if you can’t schedule a lot of time away from work or social life. Superficial results can be seen immediately after the treatment and it can take up to 6 months to see your full results as your skin starts to regenerate and your collagen matrix rebuilds and repairs itself.
Comfort Pulse Technology™ (CPT) has revolutionised the comfort of the Thermage treatment; this treatment uses the ‘gate control theory’ of how we perceive discomfort. This theory shows that the brain suppresses any discomfort it would usually sense if it’s distracted by another sensation. In this case, Thermage® uses gentle vibrations combined with cooling bursts to offer you a very comfortable treatment.

Thermage is not a replacement for surgery. It is a safe and effective solution for those who do not want or need the dramatic results of surgery. The results from Thermage CPT are gradual and subtler.
Thermage offers you a treatment option that involves no injections, is non-surgical skin tightening and the ability to resume your usual activities immediately.
We very often treat ladies who have had children and are now finding that the skin on their abdomen is loose and crepey.
Thermage can help to tighten and smooth the skin and, although it is not specifically designed to improve stretch marks, patients often feel their stretch marks are less problematic because of the overall improvement in the texture of their skin. Moreover, Thermage CPT can be used alongside treatments specifically designed to soften the appearance of stretch marks.
For most patients, it can take approximately two to six months to see your full results, although many patients do report seeing positive changes before this.
Thermage Comfort Pulse Technology works on the deep layers of your skin to enable longer-lasting results than other more superficial procedures. During the months following your Thermage treatment, your body’s collagen-building and remodelling process will be active, gradually producing your results. These results can last years depending on your body’s ageing process and your skin condition.
Thermage has a great safety profile and at The Skin to Love Clinic we are able to draw upon a huge wealth of expertise and experience as one of our practitioners is the trainer to other medical practitioners using this device in the UK and Europe.
Consultations are an important part of the treatment process in allowing you to understand the treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation, your concerns will be assessed. Your medical practitioner will be able to discuss whether this treatment is appropriate for you, as well as any suitable alternative treatments.
Your practitioner will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to prior to you having treatment.
