Well basically, a
patient comes in, and it works well
for these frown lines that we all get
between the brows. And we use a
nerve stimulator to identify where
the branches of the nerve go across
the brow that help create those creases.
And once we've identified them, we can
place a radio frequency probe onto the
nerve,
turn it on for a brief period of time, to
heat it up
and ablate or destroy the nerve in that
area,
and then we just march down the nerve and
ablate it in a few other locations, so
that when they're done, they can't frown
at that moment. There'll be a little bit
of swelling afterwards perhaps, but
it's been very well tolerated, and again
it's a nice alternative to
toxin-injectable
therapy like Botox and other products.
