ThermiRF also known as Symphony RF is a procedure that reduces wrinkles and tightens skin. It is an FDA approved aesthetic treatment that uses temperature controlled radio frequency to pull and tighten the skin. ThermiRF is a minimally invasive treatment that improves skin laxity in the eye area and other regions of the face. It is commonly used as an alternative to incisional facelift or neck-lift surgery.
There are two types of ThermiRF procedures, ThermiTight and ThermiSmooth. ThermiSmooth treats the external surface of the skin while ThermiTght goes deep into the skin to create temperature changes in the deeper collagen layers. This can also be used to shrink or remove excess fat in the jowls and neck.
How does it work?
ThermiRF heats up the treatment area to promote the production of collagen which in turn tightens and smoothens the skin. Inner layers of the skin can tolerate temperatures over 122 degrees Fahrenheit. ThermiRF devices are positioned over the treatment area. This heats the inner layer but temperatures are kept to 107 degrees Fahrenheit. Multiple sessions are recommended to achieve optimum results.
ThermiRF uses a small probing device which is inserted using a needle. It is then positioned directly into the inner layer of the skin. The probe is then placed directly into the inner layer of skin. The probe carefully monitors the temperature to reach a safe and effective level of skin tightening.
Treatment sessions include marking out the areas for treatment, administration of anesthesia, and the process itself. The attending aesthetician cleanses the area and applies gel over the treatment area. The handheld head of the device is then rolled over the fat area. Fat cells are heated destroying it in the process. The application of heat is regulated. ThermiRF boosts collagen production to promote skin rejuvenation. Wrinkle causing nerved are also disabled leaving the patient’s skin looking smooth.
Treatments generally last for 30 to 60 minutes. Treatment times vary depending on the patient’s condition. Minimal downtime is expected with areas of treatment. Common side effects include skin redness and mild swelling. Visible results can be seen after a few weeks. Usually, 3 to 6 months is needed for optimum results. Patients can experience minimal discomfort after treatment but this can be managed by over-the-counter medications.
