What is the latest in skin tightening?

realself-top100-doctor-2015ThermiRF is a minimally-invasive treatment that comfortably tightens loose skin. This breakthrough procedure uses radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells which are eventually drained from the body through urination. ThermiRF® is currently being used for treatment of cellulite, smoothing out lumps after liposuction, reduce excessive underarm sweating, reduce double chins and most commonly for tightening loose skin on the lower face and neck.

How does ThermiRF/ThermiTight work?

ThermiRF delivers radiofrequency energy through a cannula that is inserted under the patient’s skin. The cannula heats the tissue beneath the skin, melting the fat and preparing it for excretion from the body. The heat from the cannula also stimulates collagen production beneath the skin, correcting the skin laxity that commonly occurs after fat reduction and age. The patient is numbed so the patient can relax and be comfortable during the treatment.

How does ThermiRF/ThermiTight differ from other non-invasive fat treatments?

The biggest distinction between this device and previously available treatments is that instead of delivering the energy through the skin, the radio frequency energy is delivered directly under the skin.  While many non-invasive skin tightening treatments exist, ThermiRF is the only minimally invasive procedure that utilizes a temperature-controlled piece than can be adjusted to effectively treat each patient’s specific area(s) of concern. The ThermiRF’s adjustable temperature greatly enhances patient comfort and safety and results.

Additional uses for the Thermi RF include treating axillary hyperhidrosis for excessive sweating and smoothing & tightening of the skin.

Who is a good candidate for ThermiRF/ThermiTight?

An ideal candidate for ThermiRF has stubborn pockets of excess fat on their body that has not responded to diet and exercise. The patient should be in good health with no underlying conditions. To find out if ThermiRF is right for you, schedule a consultation with one of our patient coordinators.

How soon will I see results after a ThermiRF/ThermiTight treatment?

It is important to understand that multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results. Most patients experience noticeable results immediately after their ThermiRF treatment. Results typically continue to evolve over the next three to six months, as the collagen restores beneath the skin.

 What other treatments can ThermiRF/ThermiTight perform?

In addition to skin tightening, ThermiDry is a micro-invasive radiofrequency treatment that treats hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, by heating the subdermal glands and disabling their function during a one hour, minimally invasive procedure! This may require 2 treatments for best results however the results are permanent!

Thermi-Tight lifts and tightens skin on the body such as arms, abdomen, thighs and more.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
