Introducing a revolutionary new way to tighten your skin without surgery: Thermi250.
Thermi250 is a powerful radiofrequency system that is FDA and Health Canada approved. The device emits controlled radiofrequency heat at 470 kHz, which is a level that has been extensively examined by doctors to be optimum for tissue rejuvenation. For you, this means that you can enjoy tighter, more youthful skin and a leaner look all because Thermi250 applies just the right amount of heat to:
- tighten tissues by building and rebuilding new collagen
- eliminate unwanted fat right below the skin layer
Your treatment is designed to give you a maximum reduction of loose skin within a series of customized sessions. We’ll make sure just the right amount of RF heat is delivered to your target area to get the results you want safely. We do this based on the indepth training our medical aesthetic practitioners receive, their lengthy experience and the precise regulation of energy the device is designed to deliver.
There are two specific treatments that can be performed with the Thermi250 device.
Thermismooth Face is ideal if you want to get rid of wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin in these areas:
- upper eyelids
- lower eyelids
- around the mouth
- along the lips
Unlike other technologies, this treatment is safe to administer around the eyes, where the skin is particularly delicate.
By gently warming the tissues to contract collagen molecules and stimulate their production, the skin is remodelled at the cellular level. This results in younger, smoother and healthier skin.
Thermismooth Body is ideal if you want to get rid of the following issues affecting your body contour:
- loose skin on the stomach
- saggy skin on the buttocks and thighs
Fantastic improvements in cellulite have been noted, as you can see in the before and after photo of this patient.
And even though it can take up to 6 months after a session to see an improvement, this patient noticed a very noticeable reduction in her cellulite after just one month!
Tell me more about the treatment
After a complimentary consultation to determine whether the treatment is right for you, you’ll begin your Thermi250 skin tightening treatment.
You should remove all jewelry before you begin your session. The treated area should be cleansed with a mild soap, so it’s free of makeup and lotions.
During your treatment, a handpiece is used to target the desired area(s) of improvement. You’ll probably feel warmth and very light electric shocks in the target area, like static in a dry environment. You may be asked to shave in the area to eliminate stubble that has been found to make the sensation worse. If you’re having the area around your eyes treated, you’ll be asked to wear protective eye shields. Most patients find the treatment comfortable enough that no anesthesia is necessary.
Your session may be rescheduled if you have an infection or cut in the target area. This is because wounded skin may increase your risk of infection or other negative side effect.
This procedure might not be suitable for you if you’re highly sensitive to heat or have an active infection or wound in the target area.
What should I expect after my treatment?
You won’t need to go home and recover after your Thermi250 skin tightening treatment. While you may experience warmth, pinkness and mild aching in the area treated, these should all resolve within 2-3 days, at most. The aching has been described as the same kind you’d feel after having a good workout at the gym.
Each session only takes about 30 minutes.
To improve your recovery, you should:
- Drink plenty of fresh water to help nourish your body and flush toxins. Drinking plenty of water before your session will also help.
- Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours after your session. This includes tanning beds. If you go out, make sure to cover up the treated area.
- Moisturize the treated area well with a non-irritating cream recommended by us.
- If you’re particularly red or achey, try to avoid drinking alcohol and extreme temperatures.
Please contact us or your doctor if you experience too much pain and discomfort or develop a rash or bleeding in the treated area.
When will I see my results?
Each session can produce a visible improvement, however we recommend about 3 sessions to achieve the optimal results.
After each session, it will take about 3-6 months for your skin to remodel its collagen levels. This process, called collagenesis, will occur in the months following your treatment.
The improvement will last as long as the effects of aging and the environment don’t take their visible toll. You may want to get “touchups” done every 9 months to a year.
