Skin tightening basically refers to eliminating subdermal deposits while at the same time accelerating the production of collagen. Those in San Diego who have undergone liposuction treatment know very well the risks of sagging skin afterward. ThermiRF is a technique that uses controlled heat. The raised temperature shrinks collagen, and this, in turn, kickstarts the process of additional collagen creation. The result is firmer skin that is more favorably contoured.
What is ThermiRF?
The RF is an abbreviation for radiofrequency. The procedure is performed utilizing electrodes that carry radiofrequency energy. This heats up the tissues beneath the skin. The cells become damaged and burst, and they are redistributed or eliminated from the body as waste.
Unlike liposuction which does nothing to improve skin texture, ThermiRF technology delivers RF energy to the surrounding tissues. The body responds to this energy absorption by shrinking the collagen already present. When new collagen is produced as a result of this energy absorption, the skin layers above the area become firmer and tauter. This doesn’t happen overnight, of course. It takes some time, but the results are long-lasting.
What Can ThermiRF Treatment Correct?
Remember that ThermiRF is a treatment designation. The company that manufactures the devices used in the treatment has come up with all sorts of names for particular treatment procedures. These include ThermiSmooth® and ThermiTight®. When we consult with the client in San Diego, we will outline the various skin tightening procedures and what they are designed to improve.
The procedures can help significantly improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin on the face and neck, and even cellulite. However, the most important improvement is better skin contours.
This is an outpatient skin tightening procedure that is performed in the comfort of our office in San Diego, so clients need not worry about overnight stays at a clinic or invasive surgical techniques. There’s little to no downtime after treatment, making it very convenient and hassle-free.
