ThermiRF Skin Rejuvenation and Fat Reduction

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.

ThermiRF versus Traditional Liposuction

ThermiRF is a safer alternative to traditional liposuction. Treatments are effective in helping patients reduce facial fat deposits and achieving smoother skin. It requires minimal downtime and have lesser side effects.


Venus Free Non-surgical Liposuction

Venus Freeze is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that helps tightens skin and eliminates cellulite deposits. The treatment is a combination of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Pulses. Energy produced painlessly and safely penetrates deep into the skin. Venus Freeze is based on clinically proven technology used for removing excess fat and skin tightening. The result it a painless, safe and comfortable experience. Treatment areas include the abdomen, thighs, arms, buttocks, face, and neck.

How Does It Work?

Powered by patented technology that combines multi-polar radio frequency and electromagnetic fields, Venus Freeze reduces wrinkle, tightens the skin, and eliminates cellulite deposits. This happens when the energy produced causes thermal reaction in the skin tissue. It stimulates the body’s natural healing response causing new collagen to form and produce new elastin fibres. The active collagen in the skin contracts which makes the skin look and feel firmer.

The procedure uses multiple bipolar radiofrequency electrodes that rapidly oscillate at 100,000 times per second. When combined with Pulsed Magnetic Resonance, it minimizes heat build-up at each electrode creating an even thermal matrix. The oscillating electrical current heats up the skin and soft tissue reducing fat cell content in the target area. Skin is left unharmed because the heat application is dispersed.

Venus Freeze does not require any cooling gels or numbing cream. The treatment not only promotes healthier, toned, and smoother skin but also enhances blood circulation.


Venus Freeze utilizes low-risk radiofrequency technology that does not damage the skin. Treatment time and frequency depends on the patient and area to be treated. The face and neck area take an average of 6 treatments with a period of 15 to 30 minutes for best results. The body may take around 8 treatments at 30 to 40 minutes each. Patients can expect to see the skin tighten in the face and neck area. This decreases the folds around their mouth and produces an increased definition of the jaw. Venus Freeze treatment around the body makes the skin tighter and reduces fat up to about an inch around the waist.

Venus Freeze system consists of 2 applicators which are the OctiPolar and DiamondPolar. OctiPolar has 8 synthesizers used for large treatment areas while the DiamondPolar has 4 synthesizers ideal for smaller treatment areas. Each synthesizer simultaneously emits radiofrequency and pulsed magnetic fields. Energy rotates between 2 synthesizers in an organized matrix that raises the temperature over the entire treatment area. It creates an efficient woven dense energy matrix that penetrates deep into the layers of the skin for maximum efficacy. The effects lead to decreased subcutaneous fat mass, stabilization of collagen strands, and improved blood circulation. Single maintenance treatments are recommended to maintain the results.

While fat cells are targeted by the treatment, it begins to break down triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids while hormonal activity is increased. As triglycerides coverts through the process, free fatty acids are able to leave the fat cell and are released into the blood stream.


  • No downtime
  • Pain free
  • Safe without risk of burning, scarring, or bruising
  • Fast procedure where each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes

Exilis Skin Tightening and Body Contouring

Exilis is a body-sculpting procedure that uses an FDA approved technique. It uses radio frequency wave to heat up fat cells behind the skin. Exilis is being marketed as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

Exilis uses monopolar radiofrequency emitted by a device that produces ultrasonic energy. This procedure shrinks loose tissue and enhances collagen production. Exilis does not only help reduce fat volume but also tightens and lifts skin. This is used for treating many body parts including the neck, jowls, brows and abdomen.

How does it work?

Exilis uses dynamic monopolar RF with embedded Energy Flow Control technology to heat tissues. The idea behind the technology has been used in the field of dermatology to stimulate the skin through radio frequency waves. By using different wave settings, the energy is able to penetrate the skin and heat fat layers.

Elixis fat reduction and skin tightening work by stimulating collagen production within the skin. Radio frequency stimulates collagen fibers causing fibroblasts to start producing more protein. This results to skin tightening which is a long term effect of building up the fiber network in the skin. Exilis also uses this energy to destroy fat cells which are then broken down and removed from the treatment area. The device used also comes with a built-in temperature sensor that prevents patients from experiencing pain.

The Procedure

Two treatments are available and being offered; BTL Exilis Elite and BTL Exilis Protégé. BTL Exilis Elite is for body treatments while BTL Exilis Protégé is for facial treatments. The external radiofrequency applicator is applied to the skin with a very thin layer of ultrasound gel on the surface. The device passed over the treatment area in slow moving directions.

Radiofrequency energy heats the fat cells up to the therapeutic end point, this is maintained for 20 to 30 minutes. After a series of treatments, modest fat reduction is observed and an improvement in cellulite or skin tightening.

The treatment is designed to be painless and comfortable. No needles or injections is involved and most patients can tolerate the procedure very well without the need for topical anesthetics. There’s a cooling technology at the heart of Exilis’ design that prevents damage to the upper layers of the skin. This aspect of the technology makes treatment painless and comfortable to patients. Cooling occurs simultaneously with the application of radio frequencies so that the skin is cooled as frequencies pass through.

Optimal results may require several sessions depending on the patient and area to be treated. Exilis can lead to a dramatic improvement in the skin’s appearance and actual, visible decrease in circumference measurements around the arms and thighs.

Pros and Cons

• Procedure is quick which takes as little as 15 minutes per session on small areas
• Exilis works well for older patients who are not candidates for invasive procedures
• Particularly effective on “problem areas” especially those that are unresponsive to exercise and diet
• Can be either alternative or a compliment to lipolysis. It can also be combined with other treatments on the same day like BBL, IPL, or fractional resurfacing.
• FDA approved
• Exilis can be performed on all skin types or tones
• Helps improve metabolism
• No pain caused or associated with the treatment
• The effects do continue even after treatment and collagen synthesis continues to improve for 3 to 4 months after the treatment


• There may be some pinkness on the treated area which may last for 15 to 30 minutes
• Patients shouldn’t expect a 100% reduction in wrinkles or consider this as a solution for extreme fat removal
• Some patients are non-responders to the treatment
• It is a cumulative procedure which generally requires a series of treatments and can take 4 to 6 months to see full result

Body FX – Body Contouring Treatment

The skin may also appear to be slightly reddish or irritated but expect this to disappear within a few days.

How quickly will I see the result?

Results vary depending on skin condition and individual patients in general. However, visible physical results such as tighter skin can be noticed after a single treatment. For best results however, it might take months of treatment.

What to expect with Body FX?

Body FX treatment combines suction, deep tissue heating, and radio frequency energy to eliminate fat deposits and smoothen the skin. Radio frequency energy distributes the heat into the target areas causing the destruction of fat cells. Deep tissue heating stimulates collagen production thus tightening the skin. All in all, patients can expect fat loss while enjoying young, firm skin.

Non-invasive liposuction with Lipo-Ex

Lipo Ex is a non-surgical liposuction techniques that uses the LipoTron 3000 device by RevecoMed. This procedure promises to successfully melt stubborn fat and cellulite deposits and help tighten the skin painlessly. Lipo Ex procedure uses bi-polar radiofrequency energy to heat fat cells without harming surrounding tissues.

How does Lipo Ex work?

With the help of bi-polar radiofrequency, LipoTron 3000 increases the temperature of your body. Radiofrequency targets fat cells and its water content. Heat melts fat, encourage the production of collagen and helps tighten the skin. The body’s lymphatic system removes the melted fat away naturally.
