Dr. Marcia Byrd at Byrd Aesthetic Center in Roswell, GA has introduced the latest development in non-surgical wrinkle reduction and skin tightening – THERMIsmooth™ and THERMItight™. Utilizing radio-frequency energy to target the subdermal, or inner, layer of skin directly, the THERMIRF device can safely heat the treatment area to an optimal temperature for skin tightening unavailable from other radio-frequency devices such as Thermage.
Dr. Byrd has always sought out the latest in anti-aging technology, to be able to provide her patients with the most effective treatments available. As technology changes and advances, so does Dr. Byrd. She was offering the very popular treatment, Ultherapy™ to her patients for skin tightening, but now has discontinued and replaced with what she has determined to be more effective and not painful, the THERMIRF.
How THERMItight Skin™ Tightening Works
When heated to a high enough temperature, the body begins producing new collagen that in turn tightens and smooths skin in the affected area. The inner layer of skin can tolerate temperatures over 122 degrees Fahrenheit, resulting in faster results when heated to that level. Previously, however, devices were required to go through the outer layer of skin to heat the inner layer, limiting safe treatment temperatures to 107 degrees and requiring multiple treatment sessions to see results.
With THERMIRF’s innovative, minimally invasive treatment method, a small probe is inserted through a needle directly into the inner layer of skin. This probe carefully monitors temperature to reach a safe yet effective level for faster skin tightening results in fewer treatment sessions than other radiofrequency-focused procedures.
How THERMIsmooth™ Face Skin Smoothing Works
In addition to skin tightening, the THERMIRF device can also be used for non-invasive skin smoothing. This procedure, called THERMIsmooth™ Face, delivers precise gentle epidermal heating that feels like a warm massage. The Radio-frequency energy causes the skin’s temperature to rise gradually, using sustained heat at a calibrated temperature to achieve long-lasting skin smoothing. Treatment is performed by moving a small hand-piece in a circular motion over the treatment zone. Treatments are typically repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
Areas that are FDA Approved for Treatment Using ThermiRF
Atlanta area patients are now able to successfully receive treatment for improving these problem areas:
• Frown lines
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Double chin
• Sagging skin (face, neck and eye area)
• Excessive underarm sweating
• Skin tightening
Dr. Marcia Byrd has effectively used the THERMIRF™ device on many patients with very nice results. She has found that most treatments will require multiple treatments over a period of several weeks for maximum benefits.
