ThermiRF® in Worcester, MA
ThermiRF® is a revolutionary new heat-based treatment for wrinkle reduction and skin tightening provided by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom for her patients in Worcester and surrounding areas of Massachusetts at Salisbury Plastic Surgery.
What is ThermiRF® Technology?
ThermiRF® is a unique FDA-approved technology and device that uses temperature-regulated radiofrequency to safely reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten skin by applying heat to the area.
What Can ThermiRF® Treatments Do to Improve My Appearance?
ThermiRF® tightens, smoothes, and sculpts the skin, producing dramatic results that offer a less invasive alternative to surgery or other procedures. The ThermiRF® device can be used to apply different treatments, such as ThermiTight® and ThermiSmooth®. ThermiTight® addresses and treats skin laxity, restoring a firmer, tighter texture to the skin by treating the deepest layers of skin, while ThermiSmooth® restores smoothness and luminosity to the outer layers. These treatments are safe and effective for use on specific problem areas of the face, neck, tummy, arms, and thighs.
Advantages of ThermiRF®
The ThermiRF® treatments are minimally invasive and non-surgical, requiring little to no downtime. They require no incisions and therefore leave no scars. They also produce long-lasting, natural-looking results that rejuvenate the appearance over time by triggering collagen production, which nourishes skin cells at the structural level, producing firmer, tighter skin with improved volume and luminosity.
How Does ThermiRF® Work?
The ThermiRF® device may be used to apply various treatments, such as ThermiTight®, in which a cannula is inserted under the skin to deliver radio frequency heat to the deepest layers of skin, as well as the fatty layers beneath the surface. The treatment stimulates collagen production and gradual skin tightening while melting away excess fatty pockets and creating a more streamlined contour. ThermiSmooth® is another treatment that may be performed using the ThermiRF® device. ThermiSmooth® is an even less invasive treatment that delivers radiofrequency energy to the skin’s surface without requiring penetration beneath the skin. Following the treatment, a gentle wrap is applied to the treatment area and you may resume normal non-strenuous activities after 24 hours.
Who Can Benefit from ThermiRF® Treatments?
Although most adults in good health would make fine candidates for ThermiRF® treatments, a consultation with Dr. Ekstrom is the best way to find out if you are a good candidate. During your consultation, she can assess your condition and medical history to help make the determination. ThermiRF® is often selected to tighten and contour difficult problem areas, such as the neck, throat, arms, abdomen, and knees, so it is ideal for people whose concerns are centered in those areas. Ideal ThermiRF® candidates are healthy adults who want to treat any of the following conditions using a procedure that is minimally invasive and non-surgical:
- Fine lines, wrinkles and creases
- Submental fatty deposits or double chin
- Sagging skin in the face and neck
- Excessive underarm sweating
ThermiRF® vs. Liposuction
ThermiRF® treatments provide very similar, and in some cases, superior, results when compared to liposuction procedures. Both procedures extract excess fat from problem areas, and both produce skin tightening. While both are effective at fat elimination, ThermiRF® does a slightly better job of skin tightening. ThermiRF® may also be used to smooth out any stubborn bulges that may remain after liposuction.
Do ThermiRF® Treatments Produce Any Adverse Effects?
Although this is a safe and simple treatment, some patients may experience swelling, bruising, or redness after the procedure, though these symptoms will typically resolve naturally within one or two days.
How Much Does ThermiRF® Cost In Worcester?
The cost of ThermiRF® treatments will vary depending on the extent of your treatment and which areas are treated. Every treatment is customized for each patient. Salisbury Plastic Surgery accepts varied payment methods, including flexible financing options to help you cover the costs of your ThermiRF® treatments.
