Both men and women want to maintain their youthful appearance for as long as possible, but the natural process of aging can eventually catch up. While plastic surgery solutions are often considered, such as facelifts, they are not the only way to turn back the hands of time. In fact, patients who are considering these procedures may be better candidates for nonsurgical options, including radiofrequency treatments with the ThermiRF device.
What is ThermiRF?
Dr. Walt Sweeney of The Bougainvillea Clinique describes the ThermiRF as a radiofrequency treatment that offers skin tightening through the stimulation of collagen and elastin production. This warm device is inserted underneath the skin with a small probe, which administers radiofrequency energy to the treatment area. Over the course of several weeks, improvements will be noticed as the body has ramped up the production of collagen and elastin to plump the skin and tighten it as well!
What can I expect from my ThermiRF treatment?
The ThermiRF treatment with Dr. Walt Sweeney starts with a topical or injected anesthetic to the treatment area. Then, the ThermiRF probe is then inserted into a very small incision in the treatment area. The device is adjusted to provide the correct amount of radiofrequency energy to the area, and allows for improvement in just a few weeks. ThermiRF can be used on many different areas of the body including the arms, abdomen, face, and upper neck and jowl areas. During a consultation visit with our doctor, patients can discuss the areas of concern they would like to address and find out if this or other treatment options at our practice are appropriate.
