Thermage, Inc., announced the availability of a new treatment tip that deploys radiofrequency (RF) energy into the skin at a faster speed. The fast treatment tip reduces RF delivery time by 64 percent without affecting the clinical outcome. The Thermage method uses non-invasive RF technology to smooth wrinkles around the eye by tightening loose skin. During treatment, a cooling spray protects the skin's top layers while the treatment tip delivers RF energy into the deeper skin layers.
