Smoother skin is something all adults desire. Aging skin begins to wrinkle because the supportive tissues are decreasing in volume. Collagen production beings to lessen, and this further degrades the outward appearance of the skin. Simply applying moisturizers isn’t enough to combat the aging process. The body responds well to applied, targeted heat, and this is where ThermiRF™, a revolutionary new method of stimulating new tissue growth, comes in.
Radio-frequency heat has been shown to increase moisture, build up healthier fibrous tissue growth, and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. We recommend ThermiTight® or ThermiSmooth® for individuals who want to minimize the wrinkles and skin folds on the face or torso. There are differences between these two procedures, and the method that works best depends on the size of the region to be treated and the amount of tissue growth required for satisfactory results.
The Science Behind ThermiRF™
This is a gentle heat treatment using a specialized wand. The instrument is connected to a monitor that controls the amount of heat, the temperature of the energy waves, and the duration of each temperature setting.
When controlled heat is applied to the skin surface, some of the energy works its way inward, contracting the collagen-weak fibers and stimulating the body’s natural response mechanisms. The tissue begins to build up over the next several weeks, and the skin surface tightens and becomes more elastic and supple.
The ThermiTight® Procedure
The wand used in this treatment is a probe. The temperature can be accurately adjusted so that enough energy is delivered to the desired tissue layer without burning the skin.
Depending on the depth of the treated area and the amount of subdermal tissue and its density, the temperature may be adjusted several times to deliver the proper amount of heat over a period of time. After the treatment is completed, the individual can resume normal activities immediately.
The ThermiSmooth® Procedure
With this treatment, the instrument is pressed against the skin. The gentle heat sensation felt by the patient may be mild.
These two procedures can be performed on such problem areas as the cheeks and jaws, and body torso. The ideal candidates are those whose wrinkling and skin folding is being caused by poor tissue support rather than an accumulation of excess fat deposits. After the treatment schedule is complete, tightening of the skin caused by stronger support tissue becomes apparent.
