Dr. Andrew Campbell is pleased to announce the new product offering, ThermiRF, a minimally invasive skin treatment that tightens sagging skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, especially in the jawline, neck and chin areas. It also reduces fat and tightens the skin of loose arms, wrinkly knees, as well as the abdomen and flanks.
ThermiRF offers three different types of procedures. ThermiSmooth is designed to tighten and smooth the skin of the neck, chin and jawline in areas with mild to moderate laxity. It’s extremely effective due to its collagen stimulating capabilities. ThermiRase, could be considered similar to a long-term Botox injection. It provides long-term nerve ablation, relaxing facial muscles that cause unwanted wrinkles, lasting for up to two years.
ThermiTight is used for fat reduction, contouring and skin tightening purposes. The RF energy reduces volume in areas such as the upper arms, axillary fold, love handles and knees while simultaneously improving skin laxity, giving skin a leaner and sculpted contour.
How it works?
A local anesthetic is applied to the treated area and a tiny incision is made with a needle. A tiny probe is then inserted into the area emitting a controlled amount of thermal energy to accurately heat the tissue. The tip of the tiny probe provides constant feedback of the actual temperature during treatment while an infrared camera is used to monitor skin temperature to ensure safety and effectiveness. Depending on the settings, the closely monitored temperatures can cause nerve ablation, the destruction of small areas of undesirable fat, and even improve skin laxity. ThermiRF is a simple procedure that’s done in-office and generally lasts 30-60 minutes.
Following the procedure, most patients enjoy daily activities. Exercise and vigorous activities are not prohibited, but patients may take 1-3 days off from work while the treatment area recovers. Mild swelling lasts from 3-7 days. Results improve over the course of 6-12 weeks as collagen production increases and the body flushes out unwanted fat.
Other non-invasive uses
ThermiRF may also be used as a non-invasive skin tightening device which is not inserted under the skin. Using the device in this manner requires no downtime. A nurse or esthetician may perform skin tightening.
