“I went to Dr. Sheena Kong for Thermage skin tightening on my eyes, face and neck. Dr. Kong has the latest Thermage CPT system. The treatment was comfortable even though it was pretty long, about 2.5 hours. My skin glowed after the treatment. I am pretty happy with the result. Now that it has been 8 months after the Thermage, I have been getting lots of compliment on my skin. Thanks to Dr. Kong and her staff for making me young again at age of 69.”*
A Thermage Treatment Session
During a Thermage session, the handpiece emits radio frequency waves to heat the deep layers of the skin in the targeted treatment area. Dr. Kong uses the Thermage CPT device, which has special ‘Comfort Pulse Technology’ to prevent the patient from experiencing any discomfort. Heating the deep layers of the skin stimulates the body’s existing collagen and promotes the growth of new collagen. The results of Thermage CPT include tighter skin, lifted cheeks and youthful contours of the neck and body.
Benefits of Thermage
Thermage is non-invasive and does not require any anesthesia, eliminating the risk of anesthesia complications. It is a quick procedure with no downtime. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately.
Dr. Kong can combine Thermage treatment with another facial rejuvenation procedure, such as Fraxel laser skin resurfacing, intense pulsed light treatments, Botox injections or dermal fillers. The combination of treatments maximizes the results.*

The desire to turn back the clock on aging is nearly universal, but for many, opting for cosmetic surgery can seem a bit extreme.

But, even non-surgical procedures involving filler injections can leave swelling or bruising, and don’t last long at all.
That’s why Thermage has become our most popular facial rejuvenation procedure. Quick, easy, and non-invasive, Thermage heats the deepest layers of your skin while cooling the surface layers with Therma CPT. This unique treatment stimulates collagen production and tightens and smoothes the skin.
