FULLERTON, Calif., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Renee Cobos, MD, a board certified dermatologist and associate professor of dermatology at the University of California, Irvine, announced today that her patients are experiencing tremendous results with Thermage CPT®. The updated system, which is approved for skin tightening and contouring, features a new vibrating hand piece that increases procedure efficacy and improves patient comfort.
"Thermage has always been popular with my patients because it's non-invasive and has very little post-procedure down time," said Dr. Cobos, founder and medical director of Premiere Dermatology and Laser Center in Fullerton, Calif., and the only physician in Orange County currently offering the Thermage CPT treatment. "Now that it delivers more energy with greater comfort, patients are seeing better results and are even more satisfied with the overall experience."
Thermage CPT offers the same state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology as the original procedure, but the redesigned facial treatment tips uniformly heat a greater amount of tissue to the target temperature. This means more tightening can be achieved in a quicker time. Thermage has been shown to tighten, contour, and rejuvenate the skin in a single treatment. Immediate results are visible and continue to improve for up to six months.
"In addition to impressive results for the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines, I've seen consistent, tremendous results in patients with acne," said Dr. Cobos. "My acne patients are experiencing significant clearing in one month after the procedure. Although Thermage CPT isn't FDA approved for the treatment of acne, this is an exciting new application for the technology."
