If a Thermage Treatment Tip is used for an anatomical area it is not designed for, burn injuries or other complications may occur. To ensure that only the targeted layers are heated so as to tighten collagen and stimulate new collagen production, the epidermis is cooled off with the cooling unit of a Thermage system The end result of a single treatment session with a Thermage device and this Treatment Tip is rejuvenated and younger-looking skin.

Thermage 3.0cm² Face Tip must only be operated by a trained medical professional that is conversant in using Thermage systems in terms of proper use and managing any complications that may arise. 2 The patient should be advised that the procedure will feel hot and should be told to inform you if the heat becomes painful. Remove the patient’s makeup or jewelry. Place them onto the treatment table and attach the grounding pad onto them. Attach the cable connected to the Thermage device to the grounding pad and secure it to their back. The area of treatment should be cleaned gently with isopropyl alcohol. 2 While the skin is still damp from isopropyl alcohol, place a temporary grid system onto the treatment area to help guide accurate treatment tip placement. Check that the membrane is intact on the treatment tip. Use a generous amount of coupling fluid on the treatment area. Place the Treatment Tip onto the skin and apply pressure evenly. Multiple passes should be conducted for better results; more specifically, there are two known methods for Thermage treatments: two single passes, where two passes are followed by three to five vector passes in the direction the skin tightening is desired; and one super pass, where one row of squares and then one row of circles on the grid are treated in an alternating manner. This latter technique is used with Thermage CPT systems. The epidermis should be allowed to cool between passes. Consider the treatment complete when skin tightening can be felt or seen. Before removing the temporary grid system, apply isopropyl alcohol. Wipe and clean the skin afterwards.
