HAYWARD, Calif., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM), the global market leader in aesthetic skin treatments, today announced the Thermage® Total Tip 3.0, a highly effective treatment tip for face and neck as well as other body treatments that offers the earliest visible results in Thermage treatment history in addition to the consistent long-term results. Targeted, uniform, bulk heating allows dermatologists to treat patients effectively while maintaining patient comfort.
"With the Total Tip, patients are seeing visible results in their face, jowls and neck right off the table," said Michael S. Kaminer, MD., Managing Partner of SkinCare Physicians, Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Yale Medical School and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Dartmouth Medical School and Brown Medical School. "Doctors can confidently treat the face, neck, hands and body with one highly-effective tip. The Total Tip safely delivers as much as two times greater bulk heating volume which allows more tissue to be heated to higher temperatures, delivering better results. Thermage has had 10 years of technological refinement, and patients continue to see results that are more consistent and superior to what we saw in the past."
Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to non-invasively help smooth, and contour the skin, as well as temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite, in a single treatment with little to no downtime. The Thermage Total Tip is effective for facial treatments because it delivers uniform, volumetric bulk heating. This heat is dispersed through the vascular structures, which are more abundant on the face than other body areas. This dispersal and uniformity of energy may lead to increased patient tolerability and allows practitioners to deliver an efficient volume of heat on the face, with highly positive outcomes. Patients notice both early and long-term results.
"We are very pleased with results physicians are seeing with the Thermage Total Tip," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc. "Our physicians are reporting results right off the table using the Total Tip for face treatments. Thermage Total Tip offers a simplified and highly effective solution for dermatologists, plastic surgeons and clinicians treating patients' needs worldwide."
Since 2002, more than one million Thermage procedures have been safely performed in over 80 countries on patients of all ages, skin types and body areas, resulting in significant clinical outcomes and unmatched physician acceptance. The precise radiofrequency energy allows most patients to experience more immediate results that last for months, but vary by age, skin condition and skincare regimen. Treatment times vary by position on the body, but are safe for all skin types and are suitable for both men and women.
