FAQs on Thermage Procedures

Since the Thermage Procedures are becoming so popular, people are asking me all the time various questions regarding the different procedures involving everything from the time it takes for a treatment to how it works in general. The following are typical of the questions I receive on The Thermage Procedures:

What are the various Thermage procedures?

The Thermage procedure employs a patented radiofrequency (RF) technology called Thermacool. It has been clinically proven to tighten and gently lift skin to smooth out wrinkles and renew facial contours. The incision-free procedure is fast and easy, and requires no downtime from normal activities. Unlike lasers, the procedure can be performed on patients of all skin types. The Thermacool device has been cleared by the FDA for the non-invasive treatment of facial wrinkles and lines.

What does the Thermage procedure feel like?
With each touch of the thermatip device, you will experience a brief, deep heating sensation as the RF energy is delivered to your skin and underlying tissue.

What will my skin feel like after the procedure?
Immediately following a Thermage procedure, your skin should feel tighter, smoother and more youthful. Overtime, you will notice additional tightening.

When will I see results?
Recently published studies conducted by Thermage show that measurable tightening improvements appear gradually over 2 to 6 months after a single treatment session. However, many patients have reported seeing an earlier response.

How long before I can return to my normal activities?
Most people return to their regular activities immediately following the Thermage procedure.
Can Thermage be used on other areas of the body?
Thermage is gaining increased public awareness in the treatments’s ability to tighten loose body skin – especially loose skin on the tummy area. Used post-pregnancy or pre-liposuction, Thermage has proven to tighten that area that no amount of exercise will touch. an effective treatment for tightening loose areas on the body

Benefits and Advantages?
Most importantly, there is no recovery or patient downtime. Patients may return back to work directly after the procedure.

Thermage Procedures are performed by certified physicians only, and the one closest to you can be found in your local yellow pages.

For facial treatments, Thermage can treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of jawline definition, sagging neck skin, wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition of the lips. The Thermage Procedures also work wonders for wrinkled, crepey, sagging or bulging skin, and help with the appearance of cellulite. This Pro-decals are performed by certified physicians all over the globe and are bringing in rave reviews everywhere. Most take about 45 minutes for facial problems and up to an hour and a half for most other body areas. Of course this depends on the condition of the area, the location, treatment size, etc. These procedures are short and most procedures only require a single treatment, so it will not disrupt any modern lifestyle or your daily routine. A temporary redness or minor swelling goes away after around 24 hours. General anesthesia is not required, but to make sure you are comfortable the doctor may offer light pain medications prior to treatment.

Thermage uses hi-tech radio frequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin which helps tighten existing collagen and stimulate formation of new collagen, resulting in reduced sagging, renewed contours and improves the texture and smoothness of the skins surface around the eyes, nose, neck and, yes, can help and a suggestion is to ask the certified physician about any specific questions you might have when setting up your first appointment.

Thermage New Face CPT

It seems like yesterday when the Thermage CPT-Precision was being introduced. Below is the first release about the new tip.

OCTOBER 12, 2009
Newest Thermage CPT Vibrating Face Tip Yields Maximum Skin Tightening with Minimal Discomfort. Thermage grants Dr. Lisa Zdinak exclusive access to debut the Thermage CPT Face Tip with Vibrating Handpiece in New York City.

Lisa A. Zdinak, M.D., Chief Surgeon and Medical Director of Precision Aesthetics and three-time Pinnacle Award Winning Thermage Physician, is pleased to have been chosen by Thermage to exclusively debut the Thermage CPT Face Tip and Vibrating Handpiece in New York City.

How does this latest technology differ from previous offerings?

Thermage CPT stands for “Comfort Pulse Technology” and is representative of Thermage’s continued efforts to provide the most effective and comfortable skin tightening treatment available on the aesthetic market today. Comfort Pulse Technology achieves the following:

Greater Skin Tightening Through A New Heating Algorithm
The redesigned facial treatment tips deliver enhanced heat distribution and uniformity, which lead to improved volumetric heating. A greater volume of tissue is heated to target temperatures and the heating is more evenly distributed across the treatment area. Data from clinical studies demonstrate that the Thermage CPT system heats four times more tissue to therapeutic temperatures than current technologies. This translates into even more skin tightening than what was available with the prior facial tips!

Increased Comfort Through “Comfort Pulse Technology”
The new Thermage CPT system employs “Comfort Pulse Technology” along with a new vibrating handpiece to enhance efficacy and greatly improve patient comfort.

The new CPT technology helps lessen discomfort in the following ways:
1. A new vibrating handpiece offers a clinically proven improvement in patient comfort. In controlled, split-faced clinical studies, comparing treatment of over 40 patients with vibration to treatment without vibration, all patients preferred being treated with vibration.
2. The new energy delivery algorithm interweaves pulsed radio frequency delivery with cooling bursts mimicking Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (“TENS”) therapy, to disrupt the brain’s neural response and improve comfort during treatment.
3. The heat is now more concentrated directly into the tissue being treated with less spillage onto the edges of the tip, eliminating that “pinch” at the end of the energy pulse.

Thermage is a safe, non-invasive skin-tightening procedure with no downtime that is clinically proven to tighten, contour, and rejuvenate the skin in a single treatment. Immediate results are visible and continue to improve for up to six months.

The Thermage treatments are performed with a device that uses radio frequency energy to tighten and lift the skin. The device uses heat and energy of radio waves, that pass through the skin and help to build collagen in the process. The procedures were initially used for tightening the skin on the face, around the eyes, etc. More and more people are discovering how well the Thermage treatments work on other parts of the body also. Thermage is being used to tighten the loose skin under the arms, on the neck, thighs, and on the tummy, buttocks and hands. The Thermage Procedures have gained popularity around the globe in recent years not only because they produce fast results, but also because they are cheaper than traditional surgical methods like facelifts.
