Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 30, 2013
Dr. Christine Brown of Dallas, TX board certified by the American board of Dermatology is now offering ThermiRF skin tightening treatments, a minimally invasive method of tightening sagging skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to ThermiRF’s subdermal targeting of radiofrequency energy, patients see results faster compared with similar technologies such as Thermage.
The ThermiRF utilizes a small probe inserted into the skin through a needle to monitor the temperature of the subdermal layer of skin. The subdermal layer of skin can safely withstand higher temperatures than the outer layer of skin. By targeting RF energy directly at the subdermal layer and bypassing the outer layer of skin, this device can help patients achieve more noticeable results in a shorter period of time.
The ThermiRF device is FDA approved for nerve ablation, but has been shown to treat cosmetic concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles. “Higher temperatures produce visible results faster than traditional methods,” says Dr. Brown, a member of the ThermiAesthetics Clinical Advisory Council. “The top layer of skin, however, cannot safely tolerate such high temperatures. The ThermiRF device targets only the inner layer to achieve the desired results without causing damage to the outer layer of skin.”
ThermiRF has been shown to successfully treat frown lines, fine lines and wrinkles, double chin, sagging skin on the face and neck, excessive underarm sweating, post-liposuction lumps, and unwanted cellulite. By carefully controlling the temperature of the device and monitoring the treatment area, Dr. Brown can help patients see the desired results without damaging healthy skin nearby. Individual patient results may vary. Patients should talk to their dermatologist to see if ThermiRF is right for them.
