ThermiRF In New York And New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer the ThermiRF™ skin tightening laser treatment to the residents of New York and New Jersey.
It is common for individuals who are concerned about loose skin, wrinkles, and other blemishes to turn to nonsurgical procedures that use radio frequency skin tightening to improve their skin’s appearance. One option that patients may consider is ThermiRF™. This is a skin tightening laser-like treatment that targets the subdermal layers of skin and melts associated fat. As the laser heats the subdermal layer, the skin will begin to produce collagen. The level of heat used will be controlled carefully by Dr. Goldberg or a staff member. Their goal is to produce smooth, natural looking results that rejuvenate the appearance of the skin.
Best Candidates for ThermiRF™
ThermiRF™ is used to treat wrinkles, cellulite, loose skin, and other conditions that affect the skin. Individuals who are not good candidates for, or who are not ready for, surgical options commonly turn to ThermiRF™. Doctors are currently using this treatment to lift and tighten the skin, while melting fat, on the neck and face, reduce cellulite in the abdomen and thighs, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles that appear on the forehead and eyelids. ThermiRF™ can be used on almost every part of the body.
Benefits of ThermiRF™
- Minimal amounts of discomfort
- Little or no downtime
- Surgery is not necessary
- Safe for all pigments and skin types
ThermiRF™ Procedure Process
ThermiRF™ is an outpatient procedure. It does not require significant anesthesia and is administered during a standard office visit. Dr. Goldberg, or one of our staff members, will mark the areas that will be treated before the treatment process begins. They will also apply cool numbing gel to the area. Next, using a small circular handheld device that emits RF waves, they will target areas just under the surface of the skin. They will gently roll this device around the areas that need to receive treatment.
Dr. Goldberg, or a staff member, will set a tiny probe that emits RF waves, according to the desired temperature. The tissue will be heated to a temperature that stimulates collagen production.
What to Expect
Individuals who undergo this procedure will feel heat from the laser. However, there is rarely any discomfort or pain. Once that treatment has been completed, a little bit of swelling and some redness are normal. These symptoms can last for several hours to a day. Most patients are able to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients will see immediate results after the treatment, but it usually takes a couple of months to see the full effects. Producing collagen is a slow process. Depending on the individual, Dr. Goldberg may decide the patient needs several treatment sessions. Once the desired results have been reached, the patient can expect them to last for a year or two.
Is Radiofrequency Safe?
Several clinical studies have been done, and their results have shown that RF technology is safe when used in dermatology and plastic surgery. It is also commonly used for cardiovascular therapy, pain management, and other types of medicine.
How Does ThermiRF™ Tighten Skin?
A lot of the treatment options that are available today only heat the skin from the surface. This can lead to the deposition of collagen where the skin was heated, but the efficacy of the treatment is limited by the patient’s tolerance. When a person uses traditional RF therapies, they usually require multiple follow-up sessions. These follow-up sessions are usually as uncomfortable as the first one. On the other hand, ThermiRF™ delivers energy from inside the skin. The low temperatures that are used with ThermiRF™ are effective, and a patient’s tolerance is no longer a problem. The results that are seen because of an increased amount of collagen in the skin after ThermiRF™ treatment include tighter, firmer, and more elastic skin. Also, the doctor will be able to more accurately monitor the temperature of the patient’s skin during treatment.
Why Is ThermiRF™ Different from Other Radiofrequency Devices?
There are two main reasons why ThermiRF™ is different. First, it is given during a single treatment. Second, it delivers energy under the skin instead of through the top layer of skin. This means that the doctor can target the results while eliminating the patient’s discomfort.
