Roslyn Heights, NY (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Advanced Dermatology PC in Long Island, Manhattan, Westchester and NJ announces that they are now offering ThermiRF skin tightening treatments, a minimally invasive method of tightening sagging skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
“We are excited to be the first dermatologists in the NYC Metropolitan area to have our dermatologists offer ThermiRF to our patients,” said Dr. Joshua Fox, Founder of Advanced Dermatology PC. “With ThermiRF skin tightening treatments, we can offer patients a minimally invasive method to tighten sagging skin, especially in the jawline, neck and chin areas,” adds Dr. Fox. We are also using it off the face to tighten loose arms, wrinkly knees and abdomen. This helps avoid the more invasive plastic surgery techniques”.
How it works
ThermiRF utilizes a small probe which is inserted into the skin through a needle to deliver the prescribed dose of safe radiofrequency RF energy and to monitor the temperature of the subdermal layer of skin. The subdermal layer of skin can safely endure higher temperatures than the outer layer of skin. A digital clock measures time and once the tip reaches a precise temperature the clinician can target and control the dose and the effect on the skin, fat and collagen. ThermiRF works by placing the monopolar radiofrequency RF energy directly at the subdermal layer, bypassing the outer layer of skin. A sensitive camera ensures that all areas are appropriately treated and avoids any complications. The result is that patients see more noticeable and positive results in a shorter period of time. “With ThermiRF’s subdermal targeting with radiofrequency RF energy patients see faster results compared with similar technologies such as Thermage and Ulthera,” says Dr. Valerie Goldburt, who also utilizes these techniques. She notes “it is less painful and the results are more dramatic”. Drs. Fox and Goldburt see ThermiRF as a procedure with more reproducible and dramatic results than Thermage and Ulthera yet not as invasive as plastic surgery.
What it helps fix
ThermiRF can help people look younger and fresher by treating a variety of areas of the skin including; frown lines, fine lines and wrinkles, double chin, sagging skin on the face, neck, arms and knees, excessive underarm sweating, post-liposuction lumps, and unwanted cellulite. Dr. Fox advises that individual patient results may vary and that patients should talk to their dermatologist to see if ThermiRF is the right approach for them. Dr. Goldburt feels, “its primary use will be for patients with ill-defined jaw lines, double chins and bat arms. The high technology device is currently FDA approved for nerve ablation but it is being used successfully off-label to tighten skin.
