Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 10, 2008
Dr. Bill Johnson's Innovations MedSpa, a leader in the medspa industry that offers many of the latest innovative treatments in the U.S., announced it will be one of the first in the nation to offer Thermage DC with the new Thermage 16cm2 tip, an advancement on the new body-shaping procedure. It will be available at Innovations Medspa in early November. Other U.S. doctors will have access to the new tip starting January 2009. Dr. Johnson has been awarded the pre-launch use of the new tip due to his involvement with the clinical trial of the procedure.
Dr. Johnson appeared on the new CBS hit show 'THE DOCTORS' earlier this month to showcase the new Thermage 16cm2 tip. He was invited to appear on the show after he removed five inches from a woman's waist on a live Good Morning Texas segment using Thermage DC, which requires no surgery or downtime and patients remain completely awake. Video of the segment can be seen via this URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2vj7hBUrPI
The Thermage DC treatment typically takes five hours, depending on area treated, but with the new tip, the procedure will now take under one hour and will mean less pain for patients.
Thermage DC helps tighten, firm and shape the body in a single treatment without surgery, injections -- and all with little or no downtime. Thermage DC heats 79% deeper than the original Thermage for increased collagen tightening in the subcutaneous layer of the skin for the abdomen, "love handles," thighs, buttocks and arm areas. The treatment is ideal for patients who are not significantly overweight but want deep tightening of sagging skin and reduction of unwanted bulges.
"The Thermage DC treatment has been so popular and effective with patients in our clinical trials and we are excited that we can now offer this fantastic advancement to all of our patients," said Dr. Johnson, owner of Innovations MedSpa. "We consistently see a 1-2 inch reduction immediately and we've seen as many as five inches removed as evidenced in our live television segments."
Thermage DC treatments with the new 16CM2 Tip cost approximately $4,000. Innovations MedSpa is currently taking pre-booking from patients who would like to be on a waiting list for the procedure.
