ThermiRF takes skin tightening one step further

Published on Nov 17th, 2016 by Michael Kaminer

Ask us about Thermi and skin tighteningThermiRF is a new addition to the SkinCare Physicians’ Skin Tightening Program. In a comfortable one-hour procedure, we are able to deliver therapeutic heat to the jawline and neck to create noticeable skin tightening. The jawline becomes sharper, and the area under the chin (the submental region) becomes smoother and more sculpted.

How ThermiRF works?

ThermiRF uses the principle of radiofrequency skin tightening to create natural results. A local anesthesia is injected under the skin, and then a thin probe is inserted through a small needle hole. The physician maneuvers the probe to areas that he or she wants to tighten, achieving therapeutic temperatures that are scientifically measured via thermal sensors both above and under the skin. The technology is a significant evolution in our ability to deliver high-level radiofrequency energy to the skin in a safe and effective manner. Recovery is rapid, with most patients returning to normal activities within a few days. Results evolve over the first 2-3 months, with maximum efficacy seen by 3-6 months.

How ThermiRF fits in SkinCare Physicians’ Skin Tightening Program?

SkinCare Physicians’ radiofrequency-based skin tightening program already include Thermage and Infini. Thermage has been available for over 15 years, and is the gold standard in non-invasive skin tightening. Over 99% of our patients are satisfied with the outcome following Thermage skin tightening. Infini has been available for a few years, and is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to achieve tightening in patients who have laxity and some wrinkles. ThermiRF takes this one step further, enabling us to treat patients with more significant skin laxity as well as submental fullness, and completes the lineup of available procedures to allow us to custom fit the technology to each individual patient’s needs.
