I am scheduled for ThermiRF this coming Thursday,...
I am scheduled for ThermiRF this coming Thursday, August 10, with Dr. Roxanne L. Sylora in Celebration, FL. There aren't too many reviews on the procedure, but what little I have heard sounds promising. Ever since I hit the mid forty's, I noticed changes in my neck. The skin started to lose it's tautness and there seemed to be a small fat pocket where my chin connects with my neck. The skin laxity is also creeping into my lower jawline area. My problem is really pretty minor so far, but even a little bit of an aging neck has made a difference in my appearance and I am hoping to hold off any kind of lift for a few years.
My consult with Dr. Sylora went very well. She took her time explaining the procedure, and I really feel like I am in good hands with her. She was very honest with my about what to expect, and since I don't have a lot of sagging, my results will be subtle. Dr. Sylora explained to me that they are still learning more as this procedure as they haven't had it in their office for very long, but they were one of the first practices in the country to offer ThermiRF and they have seen some pretty good results so far.
I will follow up with posts about my experience and also post my B/A pix here.
I had my ThermiRF yesterday and it went great!
Well, I had my procedure yesterday and just wanted to say that it wasn't bad at all. Dr. Sylora and her nurse Laura could not have been more wonderful. They did everything they could to make me feel calm as I was a little nervous. Dr. Sylora was very patient and took a lot of time with me prior to getting started. The worst part of the procedure is when the numbing medication is injected, but this is really not painful. It took about an hour, but seem to go by pretty quick. I was completely alert even though I had taken a Valium prior to the procedure. I could feel some tugging and some warmth, but it didn't hurt and we were all just having a light conversation throughout the procedure. We did the neck area, all along the jawline, and jowl area/marionette line area. Dr. Salora also had Laura do some external treatment with the hand piece (I think this is called ThermiSmooth) so we cold get these area's from both the inside and outside. While she had the hand piece out, I decided to do this around my eyes because I have laugh lines. This was completely painless, and in fact it felt nice. I don't know if a single eye treatment will do much because they told me that I may need two or three treatments for obvious results.
I took a LOT of before pix and will be upload them once I get a chance to pick through and select the best ones. I'm wearing an elastic chin strap and have not taken it off to see how I look, but I can tell I have a little swelling. I am not in any pain at all.
I am very happy with my experience and my doctor so far, and will keep updating!
Thermi Rf / Thermitight update- I'm happy so far!
I really don't know what to call this procedure, ThermiRF, ThermiTight? Well, whatever it is called I am happy with it so far. I am just 6 days post procedure and still have swelling and some bruising, but I am starting to see results. Dr. Sylora has been fantastic. She called to check on me a few days after my procedure and I really appreciated that she took the time to do that. She explained that it will take 3-6 months to really see results, so I think this is looking promising so far! I will get my pix posted soon.
I'm finally putting some pictures. Here are my "before" and I will take and post "afters" today. My procedure was in April 2014. I didn't see results for months, but did see improvements for up to about a year.
