The Thermage 3.0cm2 Frame Total Tip represents one of the many treatment tips that are available for use with the Thermage CPT system. The treatment tip used on the Thermage CPT system is crucial because they are the piece that transmits the device’s radiofrequency pulses through the skin to generate enough heat to cause collagen shrinkage and, by extension, skin tightening effects. In this regard, treatment with the Thermage CPT system and a Thermage treatment tip, such as Thermage 3.0cm2 Frame Total Tip, is a method for achieving skin rejuvenation without the need for any cuts, surgery, or injections.

Treatment with the Thermage CPT system and a Thermage 3.0cm2 Frame Total Tip should only be done by a trained medical professional that has appropriate training and experience with the system. Professional use of the system and this treatment tip—or any Thermage treatment tip for that matter—minimizes the risks of complications.
For the treatment procedure, inform the patient that the procedure should not be painfully hot and that their feedback is important in ensuring treatment success. Any makeup or jewelry should be removed prior to treatment. Remember to place the grounding pad onto them once they are put on the treatment table. The cable attached to the Thermage CPT device should be clipped onto the grounding pad, which should be secured to their back or abdomen. Prepare the skin at the treatment area with isopropyl alcohol. The temporary grid system from a Thermage Skin Marking Paper should be placed onto the treatment area while the skin is still damp with alcohol. Coupling Fluid should be applied onto the treatment area. Check that the membrane on the Thermage 3.0cm2 Frame Total Tip you are using is intact before and during the treatment process. When these steps are done, the treatment tip should be pressed against the skin with even pressure. Two techniques can be followed when pressing the tip into the skin: You can apply two single passes that are followed by three to five vector passes in the direction that skin tightening is desired, or you can apply one super pass; the latter entails treating one row of squares and then one row of circles on the grid in an alternating manner. This latter technique is recommended for the Thermage CPT system. Remember to let the epidermis cool between passes. The treatment can be considered finished once the skin tightening effects can be seen or felt.
The Thermage CPT system requires 500 Watts to operate and generate radiofrequency at a frequency of 6.78 MHz. The system has a replaceable electrode that can be exchanged for different sizes. Each Thermage treatment tip, including Thermage 3.0cm2 Frame Total Tip should only be used once.
