Some patients experience minor discomfort, however, the new Thermage system is considerably less painful than previous generations of this type of treatment.
The Thermage CPT system incorporates proprietary Comfort Pulse Technology™ in every aspect of the system including a new vibrating handpiece and scientifically advanced treatment tips. There is a special device in the new system that reduces discomfort and allows higher radiofrequency energies for greater results.
Patient care is our priority at The Private Clinic and we will always aim to make any treatment carried out at our clinics as comfortable as possible for the patient. As the Thermage treatment device touches your skin, you’ll feel a brief cooling sensation which will then be followed by a deep but brief heating sensation, followed by another cooling sensation. Throughout the procedure, our practitioners will ensure that you are comfortable with the level of heat which allows them to gauge a balance between your comfort and results.
No ongoing pain should be present after treatment but you may feel some tissue tightening.
