The ThermiRF™ is an FDA-approved aesthetic device that uses temperature controlled radio frequency energy ThermiRF helps doctors perform a number of non-surgical aesthetic procedures, including tightening of loose skin and wrinkle reduction. It is safe and effective for use on different areas of the face and body. The ThermiRF is a unique device since it can reach parts of the body that are typically harder to treat for body contouring, including the neck, arms, abdomen and knees.
Candidates for the ThermiRF Procedure
Ideal candidates for treatment with the ThermiRF are generally healthy adult men or women who wish to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles Patients who have previously undergone liposuction surgery and subsequently have developed noticeable lumps on the body may also benefit from this treatment.
Prior to undergoing a ThermiRF procedure, a physical examination will be conducted and the patient's medical history will be carefully reviewed. Patients with an underlying medical condition such as heart disease with pacemakers or a substantial amount of excess fat may not be good candidates for ThermiRF treatments.
THERMI TIGHT or INJECTABLE RF
ThermiRF is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove excess body fat and tighten and rejuvenate loose skin. A cannula is inserted under the patient's skin through a small incision, and the hand piece of the device is held against the skin. The ThermiRF delivers radiofrequency, or RF, heat energy to the taget tissue below the skin. The probe heats to a specific temperature causing the collagen to shrink and then to stimulate new collagen. The procedure takes generally 30-60 minutes.
Thermi Smooth uses an external hand piece that delivers heat to the skin superficially. This heat reaches a target temperature to stimulate the production of new collagen below the surface of the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. It takes several treatments of thermi smooth to achieve the desired result.
Recovery from the ThermiRF Procedure
Generally speaking, most patients tolerate the ThermiRF treatment well, and experience little to no discomfort during or after the procedure. Overall, recovery time will depend on how extensive the procedure was. After Thermi Tight most patients are able to return to their normal activities, including exercise and work, within a few days. Thermi smooth has no downtime.
Risks of the ThermiRF Procedure
ThermiRF treatments are considered safe for patients of all skin types, and yield smooth, youthful-looking results. Following treatment, minor redness, mild pain or discomfort and swelling can potentially occur in the targeted areas. These side effects are temporary, and should diminish a few days after treatment.
Results of the ThermiRF Procedure
Results of the ThermiRF procedure are usually noticeable gradually become more noticeable over the next few months, as collagen continues to grow below the surface of the skin. Usually only one treatment is required for Thermi Tight. Thermi Smooth requires patients to undergo several treatment sessions before their ideal results are achieved.
