The Scientific Process
ThermiRF® is a unique temperature-controlled radiofrequency technology, which safely produces excellent aesthetic outcomes through the application of the science of heat. This is a platform technology that combines precision temperature control with advanced real-time temperature monitoring to enable many soft-tissue applications. This product works well to tighten loose skin.
Controlled Subdermal Tissue Heating
ThermiTight® is an application of the ThermiRF® device, which is FDA cleared and indicated for use in dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis. The ThermiRF device heats tissue to achieve electrocoagulation and hemostasis by utilizing radiofrequency electrical energy.
Consulting with Dr. Byrd
At all consultations, Dr. Marcia Byrd considers the patient’s medical history and discusses his/her aesthetic goals. After fully explaining the ThermiRF treatment, Dr. Byrd, who is known for her professional and courteous interaction with her patients, will answer any questions you may have and help you make a decision about whether you are a candidate for ThermiRF treatment.
Patient Experience with ThermiRF®
The pain level is minimal due to the fact that that a numbing medication is applied before the treatment. Swelling after the procedure is normal, and it generally does not persist; however, it varies from patient to patient. Dr. Byrd and her staff are incredibly responsive during the follow-up stage of treatment. If you have a question or concern, it will be promptly addressed by the doctor or her caring staff.
ThermiTight utilizes a small electrode inserted under the skin to heat tissue to a clinician-selected therapeutic temperature. Literature has shown that elevating skin temperature to a therapeutic level can contract collagen molecules and stimulate collagen production, which may give the appearance of lifting or tightening.
An Important Reminder
It’s important to remember that ThermiRF®, like many facial rejuvenation treatments, continues to improve in the months and weeks following treatment. The full results of the procedure are gradual; they are not evident immediately.
Important ThermiTight Safety Considerations
Thermi Radiofrequency products should not be used on patients who are pregnant, have fever or skin infection in or around the area of application. Treating physicians should perform required testing to confirm patient is negative for infection or pregnancy. Patient should be awake and monitored during the procedure for any unexpected symptoms. Expected procedure side effects may include transient pain in procedure area, erythema and edema.
