ThermiRF® is the skin tightening procedure you’ve been waiting for. Sagging tissues and excess fat around the face and neck can have a negative effect on your self-esteem. These areas can be difficult to nearly impossible to treat with diet and exercise, leaving plastic surgery as an option. Dr. Farzad R. Nahai and his team of skincare experts at The Center for Plastic Surgery at MetroDerm, P.C. can help target these areas using a procedure called ThermiRF® Skin Tightening, a selective heating method to tighten skin tissues. Compared to previous technology, ThermiRF® is very different. Until now, radio frequency, as well as light and laser devices have been used on the surface of the skin. Energy passes thru the skin until it reaches the underlying supporting layer. The challenge with this approach is that if too much energy is delivered, the skin could suffer a burn.
A minimally-invasive procedure, ThermiRF® helps tighten skin tissue on the face, neck, and jowls while removing excess fat without passing energy through the surface of the skin. ThermiRF® uses radio frequency (RF) technology to heat the underlying, supporting skin tissues (from under the surface of the skin) and has been deemed safe by the FDA. ThermiRF® is able to adjust its temperature settings to pinpoint specific areas of treatment.
About the Procedure
A small, high technology probe is used under the skin and a gel is applied to the skin. The handpiece works to deliver the radio frequencies, heating up the tissue and stimulating collagen. A special heat-sensing monitor is used to track the skin’s temperature assuring that there is no damage or burning of the outer skin. Fat is melted off with the heat produced while the collagen stimulation works to counter the skin laxity effects. With the adjustment of the heat, safety and comfort is maximized. Most procedures take about 20 to 30 minutes. One or more treatments may be needed to achieve your desired results. Results are seen slowly over the next three to six months, lasting one to two years.
