I am 35 looking to achieve a more contoured and tightened look using non invasive procedures. My derm pushed me towards Thermage The confusion is whether I should choose the Cpt or Nxt as I have been told that the efficacy levels of both the devices are same except that Cpt provides vibrations to enhance comfort. But the both devices are equally effective. In terms of SAFETY PROFILE and EFFICACY, which device would you suggest ? Thank you!
Thermage Nxt or Cpt?

Thermage for Skin Tightening
Thermage CPT which stands for comfort pulse technology is the newest machine with the most advanced technology. Thermage CPT uses gentle vibrations interspersed with a cooling sensation to make your Thermage treatment more comfortable. About June of 2013 Solta the makers of Thermage also improved the technology on their tip making the Thermage CPT with treatment using the Total Tip technology being the most effective Thermage option. The Total Tip delivers double the maximum volume of bulk heat delivery for greater efficacy and has the same great safety profile. At my office I do multiple Thermages a week, our patients see results immediately off the table and continue to get improvement with Thermage CPT Total Tip treatments for up to 6 months after their treatment.
Ultherapy for the neck and face
I recommend using the non invasive modality known as Ultherapy to tighten the neck and face without surgery. The Ultherapy treatment uses microfocused ultrasound.

Thermage CPT using the Total Tip is a safe treatment and gives better results than the NXT and the tightening effect is seen more quickly. The CPT's vibration makes the treatment more comfortable. The safety profile is the same for the CPT or NXT.
