Dr. Ron Shelton and his team are very excited to offer patients an entirely new level of non-surgical enhancements. The device is called ThermiRF, and Dr. Shelton is one of just six doctors (dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and ENT facial surgeons) in the entire New York City area to provide the treatments. The technology is so revolutionary that you'll find it in only about 150 doctors' offices nationwide.
What is Thermi?
The FDA has approved ThermiRF for "electrocoagulation and hemostasis, and to create lesions in nervous tissue." That's a complicated phrase to describe how radiofrequency energy is precisely delivered to problem areas. ThermiRF applies precision heating to affect the targeted nerves and tissues and achieve the desired aesthetic results. No other non- or minimally-invasive procedure delivers the results that can be achieved with ThermiRF technology.
The ThermiSmooth handpiece delivers precise heat to the surface of the skin, creating a sensation similar to a warm massage. This shrinks the existing collagen and stimulates the production of new collagen over time. Treatment may be performed several times in order to achieve the desired results.
ThermiRase offers a micro-invasive alternative to neurotoxin treatments such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin. The nerves are blocked, which relaxes the muscles reducing dynamic lines and wrinkles for up to two years. It provides similar results to neuromodulators without the use of toxins.
ThermaTight treatment provides results between those that would be achieved with a surgical facelift and external treatments. The area is numbed with local anesthesia to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. A tiny probe is inserted under the skin and it heats the tissue. After treatment, a comfortable wrap is placed on the area. Patients can resume normal activities the day following treatment, however there will be some swelling for a few days.
What areas can be treated?
ThermiRF treatments can be used to safely lift and tighten skin and muscles of the cheeks, forehead, neck, upper arms, back, chest, belly, and knees, also reducing the appearance of cellulite. It is appropriate for small or large areas. Dr. Shelton utilizes it in combination with other techniques in rejuvenation programs tailored to the individual patient.
