No more dents with new NXT Thermage machine

The only bad results we used to see with the old Thermage machines were because of using high energy, which caused dents on the skin.

With the new NXT Thermage we use lower powers but lots of pulses, and we have not seen any dents. To get good results, we use 900 pulses minimum for the face and neck.

You might not see improvement from Thermage on day 1.

Hi! Not sure what you mean by bad result. You should see the peak improvement from Thermage at 4 to 6 months.

I think the most common cause of disappointing results after Thermage is that not enough energy is used. One has to buy High energy chips (more expensive) for each patient.

The other cause is that you cannot use anti-inflammatory medicines like aspirin or Advil before and after Thermage.
