Thermage TK Skin Marking Paper is used as a tool to delineate treatment areas on the skin surface so that overlapping pulse placement and, by extension, uneven heat distribution, during a treatment session with the Thermage CPT system does not occur. Since uneven heat distribution is significantly detrimental to the overall results of a treatment session with the Thermage CPT system, it is therefore crucial that this marking paper be used. Additionally, uneven heating increases the risk of complications, such as burn injuries, occurring. As such, Thermage TK Skin Marking Paper complements the Thermage CPT system in regards to making treatment with the device easier and more efficacious.
