What is Thermi250™?
Thermi250™ is a radiofrequency based body contouring and skin tightening treatment that can address excess fat and fullness on nearly any area of the face and body. This treatment can even be used to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. This non-invasive treatment allows patients to get the results of a more invasive skin tightening procedure without extensive downtime.
Thermi250™ can be used to rejuvenate skin on nearly any area of the body, including the:
- Under eye area
How Does it Work?
Thermi250™ utilizes the gentle but potent power of radiofrequency energy. During treatment, the Thermi250™ applicator is passed over the treatment area in slow, deliberate circles. This energy passes easily through the uppermost layer of the skin and is absorbed by the deeper structures of the dermis.
As this energy is absorbed by the dermis, it initiates the body’s natural healing response. This response increases blood flow to the area and causes the creation of new structural proteins. Over time, this makes the skin significantly tighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking than ever before.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
A menthol cream is applied to the target area before beginning treatment. This cream allows Dr. Russo to glide the Thermi250™ applicator smoothly over the treatment area. Many patients report that the treatment feels like a hot stone massage — discomfort is uncommon. Following treatment, most patients experience little to no downtime, and can return directly back to their daily routines. Most people undergo about four treatments every 2-3 weeks.
Before beginning treatment, you must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Russo. During this appointment, Dr. Russo will take into account your cosmetic goals and current state of health in order to assess if Thermi250™ is right for you.
