The Thermage ThermaCool System
The Stratford Dermatherapy Clinic has been using THERMAGE since 2004. There are only 16 users in the UK.
The Thermage procedure is performed with The ThermaCool System and it works by using deep tissue heating to tighten the deep collagen fibres of skin and its underlying tissue, while protecting the skin surface with a cooling spray. This initial deep thermal tightening of collagen also signals a natural biological repair process that causes additional skin tightening and restoration of a younger skin appearance.
What sets the Thermage treatment apart?
The ThermaCool system is the first non-invasive device that tightens tissue, because it treats the deeper structures of the skin. While the Thermage procedure is not a replacement for a traditional “facelift” procedure, the non-invasive Thermage alternative can provide a significant tissue tightening effect to the millions of patients who are not ready to go “under the knife” to reduce the signs of ageing.
How it works
The ThermaCool System uses a special form of radio waves to deliver heat to tighten and remodel the deep structure underneath your skin.
It simultaneously protects the skin surface from heat damage by using a protective cooling spray apparatus before, during and after tissue heating.
During the Thermage procedure, which is performed under the supervision of a physician, the ThermaCool treatment tip uses tiny thermometers to measure the skin surface temperature, and automatically triggers a cooling cryogen spray to maintain a cool skin surface.
Features and Benefits
Each ThermaCool treatment tip is delivered to the physician in its own individual package, sterilized for patient safety, and designed so that it can be used only once, on a single patient.
