ThermiRF technology for Rejuvenation

Both men and women are searching for easy and economical ways to look and feel more youthful. However, many no longer have the time for recovery from surgical procedures. The latest non-surgical option is called ThermiRF.

The ThermiRF is the RadioFrequency energy generator that utilizes the latest technology using the "Science of Heat" to reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, reduce fat, and reduce cellulite.

The ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth, ThermiSmooth250, and the latest ThermiVA are attachments that are designed to deliver this radiofrequency to different tissues.

The ThermiSmooth and the ThermiSmooth250 deliver the highly controlled heat topically with small hand-pieces to the skin, raising the temperature to about 45 degrees centigrade. This is a temperature that tightens collagen, diminishes fat and reduces both wrinkles and cellulite with no discomfort or downtime. Four treatments, one every 2-3 weeks, are necessary to achieve maximum fat reduction and skin tightening. Areas usually treated include eyes, forehead and brow, lower face, neck, arms, legs, buttocks, ankles, abdomen, and back.

The ThermiTight requires local anesthesia and utilizes a very small probe just under the skin to deliver and moniter highly controlled heat for the purpose of tightening skin, reducing fat, and cellulite. This requires only one treatment and effectively "melts" the fat while tightening collagen and elastin. Highly controlled temperatures of up to 70 degrees C. can be achieved because it is delivered directly under the skin. The ThermiTight can be used virtually anywhere in the lower face, neck, body, legs and arms. There is some swelling and recovery time, although it is a minimally invasive procedure. The recovery is mostly non-limiting regarding daily activities, except for exercising. Approval rating on RealSelf is 94%, very high for any procedure.

The ThermiVA uses the same ThermiRF generator, but as with the ThermiSmooth, the heat is applied topically to the vaginal area to tighten both the external and internal vaginal area with tightening of up to 50%. This procedure usually requires 3 treatments spaced about 1 month apart. There is no discomfort during or following the procedure.

A much-appreciated side effect of the ThermiVA is a reduction or elimination of stress incontinence. This can be a debilitating complication following pregnancies with vaginal deliveries. Stress incontinence can occur during activities such as exercising, sports, and even when laughing, coughing, or sneezing.

ThermiDry, another attachment, is used to eliminate excess underarm sweating.
