You can order Thermage TR-2 Return Pads online from MedicaDepot.com, or you can phone our friendly customer service associates to make an order.
What does this product come with?
This single-use device is individually packaged and is available in boxes that each contain 12 pads.
What are the benefits of this product?
The Thermage TR-2 Return Pad is used in Thermage CPT treatment to provide a return path for the radiofrequency energy. As a monopolar device, Thermage CPT produces this radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of skin to tighten collagen and stimulate the production of it; these effects bring about a skin-tightening effect.
How does this product work?
With age, collagen and elastin break down in the skin, and existing collagen elongates. These developments result in lax, sagging skin. The Thermage CPT system works to contract and shrink the collagen located deep in the skin, providing a skin tightening effect. Furthermore, this treatment helps to stimulate the production of new collagen, which retexturizes the skin over time and enhances the initial skin tightening effects.
The Thermage CPT system also incorporates the action of cryogen to create cooling bursts before, during, and after the delivery of radiofrequency pulses. These pulses aid in the maintenance of surface skin temperature. Also, the Thermage CPT system has an operator Handpiece that can deliver vibrations to the skin during treatment for the purposes of pain management.
Monopolar radiofrequency, unlike unipolar or bipolar radiofrequency, requires the use of a grounding pad on patients’ bodies. As such, Thermage TR-2 Return Pad is an accessory that completes the electrical circuit for energy transfer when placed on the patient’s skin. Consequently, a path is created for the radiofrequency energy from the Thermage CPT system to travel back to the generator of said system.
What are the ingredients?
This accessory is a non-active conductor in the form of a self-adhesive rubber pad with a mat-like design. This device works with the Thermage CPT skin contouring system, which consists of a radiofrequency generator, an operator Handpiece, and a cryogen unit.
How to inject/administer this product
Treatment with the Thermage CPT system should be conducted in a medical office setting by an appropriately trained medical practitioner. Start the treatment procedure by cleansing the planned treatment site and removing makeup. Then, attach the Return Pad to the patient, usually on their back or lower abdomen.
Next, apply a treatment grid to the area being treated to guide and direct treatment so that all necessary areas are treated without accidental overlapping pulses of radiofrequency delivery. Apply Coupling Fluid onto the treatment area to improve radiofrequency delivery. Radiofrequency energy is transferred to the skin through the Handpiece and a Thermage Treatment Tip in passes. Once treatment is complete, the treated area can be cleansed with alcohol to remove the grid.
When should I use this product?
For Thermage CPT, the typical session takes 20 minutes to an hour and a half to complete, depending on the treatment area. A single treatment session with Thermage CPT results in immediate apparent improvements.
What areas can I treat with this product?
Thermage CPT has a variety of Treatment Tips that allow for the customization of treatments in accordance with the patient’s aesthetic need. A number of areas can be treated, including the face, eyelids, arms, buttocks, thighs, stomach, and more. With treatment of any of these areas, a Thermage TR-2 Return Pad should be attached to the patient.
How long do results last?
The duration of action depends on the patient’s skin type and aging process, but the results of a single Thermage CPT treatment usually last beyond one year.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an ideal candidate for this product?
Ideal candidates for Thermage treatment are those with lax skin or any condition that Thermage CPT is suitable to treat. It should be noted that Thermage CPT is contraindicated in patients with an internal cardiac defibrillator or pacemaker, pregnant women, and patients with active skin infection(s) at their particular planned treatment site.
Why should I purchase this product?
The Thermage CPT system is a highly versatile product because of its compatibility with interchangeable Treatment Tips, and treatment with this device is a safe and effective alternative to surgical skin tightening procedures. However, the return pad is necessary to the functionality of the system, so it must be purchased if you want to provide the benefits of Thermage CPT to your patients.
Are there any side effects?
Common side effects of Thermage CPT treatment include redness and edema after the session; however, these side effects should resolve spontaneously within a week of treatment. In rare instances, treatment with the Thermage CPT system may also cause other unintended effects like epidermal injury that results in blisters, crusts, or scabs; transient feelings of numbness, altered sensation, or tingling at the treated site; and formation of small skin depressions.
