What is ThermiSculpt?
ThermiSculpt is a new radiofrequency-based technology that delivers radiofrequency energy directly below the skin. Because it delivers this energy directly to the structures that trigger skin rejuvenation, ThermiSculpt is one of the most effective ways to tighten and tone the skin without the need for extensive surgery.
How Does it Work?
During treatment, radiofrequency energy is applied directly to the patient’s problem area. As this radiofrequency energy hits the underlying structures of the skin, it’s absorbed by them as heat. This heat causes the structures to begin to rupture, jump-starting the body’s natural healing process. Blood circulation increases and healing growth factors are created. Structural proteins like elastin and collagen also begin to coagulate and repair themselves, often causing the formation of additional proteins. As time passes, this healing response creates a newer, stronger matrix of tissues and proteins beneath the skin.
Because ThermiSculpt delivers radiofrequency energy underneath the skin, it’s particularly important that the skin’s temperature be precisely monitored. Fortunately, ThermiSculpt’s dual methods of both internal and external temperature monitoring ensure that the patient’s skin is never too hot at any point of the procedure. This procedure is also performed exclusively by Dr. Russo, our practice’s leading licensed physician, so you can take comfort knowing you’re in the hands of a dedicated, caring professional.
What can I Expect from a ThermiSculpt Treatment?
Before undergoing a ThermiSculpt treatment, each patient is administered anesthesia to ensure that the procedure is as comfortable as possible. The amount of time that each treatment takes depends on the patient’s individual condition and the size of the area being addressed.
Anyone interested in undergoing a ThermiSculpt treatment must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Russo. During this appointment, Dr. Russo will evaluate your current state of health and aesthetic goals in order to decide if ThermiSculpt is right for you. He will also provide you with information about your estimated recovery time and any post-treatment care you might need.
