ThermiRF™ Skin Tightening and ThermiSmooth™ Treatment for Wrinkles, Skin Laxity & Stretch Marks
A non-surgical neck and lower face lift.
Thermi-RF has been available in the United States for over two years now, but too many people are not aware of this incredible option. It is deemed by the top cosmetic physicians to be the closest thing to a surgical neck and lower face lift, but done with local anesthesia, and without surgical cutting. Results are more dramatic than Ulthera and other non-invasive skin tightening treatments which are done on the outside of the skin. We are seeing more effective new collagen and elastin formation with skin tightening done under the skin rather than from the outside.
What is ThermiRF™ Skin Tightening?
Thermi-RF™ is controlled radiofrequency heating of skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin formation, to remove wrinkles and skin laxity resulting in rejuvenated skin. Anyone with saggy skin may benefit. Even if your skin laxity is most severe and you thought surgery was the only answer, improvement will still be seen. It can also be used to tighten skin with stretch marks or after weight loss. During the treatment, the patient is relaxed with valium, and local tumescent anesthesia (Lidocaine or Marcaine) is given to the treatment area. A heat-sensitive camera is used to visualize the skin during treatment. A radiofrequency probe is introduced through a very small puncture in the skin. Multiple radial movements of the RF heat probe under the skin are performed to evenly heat the dermis to the precise temperature to achieve safe and effective new collagen and elastin formation. The treatment takes less than an hour for neck and lower face. It can also be done for lax skin on arms, legs and abdomen and more. Following treatment, the patient must wear a compression garment to the area for 4 days or until swelling is mild. After treatment, patients should expect swelling for a week or less, mild bruising, and tenderness for a few days to a week. By contrast, with surgical skin tightening, involving incisions and cutting, recovery is many weeks to months. The cost of Thermi-RF™ is based on size of the treatment area. The average neck treatment is $3500.
At Alpine Dermatology and Laser Center, we are also proud to offer ThermiSmooth treatments for skin laxity, wrinkles, stretch marks, and thinned scars. ThermiSmooth is precise radiofrequency heating on the surface of the skin to stimulate new collagen formation resulting in thicker, healthier, younger looking skin. The treatment is repeated as often as weekly for desired results. Many patients describe this gentle and well-tolerated treatment as like a warm massage.
