What is Thermilift?
Thermilift is the newest FDA-approved aesthetic procedure, and the first of its kind, able to deliver controlled thermal energy (radiofrequency) directly under the skin to help reverse the effects of aging. The procedure is ideal for patients, who do not want surgery and desire more lasting results than non-invasive procedures can deliver.
What are the benefits?
Since Thermilift is directly applied under the skin, it effectively heats the target areas, causing contraction (shrinking), tightening and lifting of the skin. The science behind it is skin collagen gets stimulated, which then reorganizes and tightens when heated up to a temperature of about 50 to 60C. This leads to the tightening of the skin as elasticity improves with new collagen formation.
How does it work?
It is described to be a “micro-invasive” procedure since it involves the use of a micro-fine needle probe inserted beneath the skin. This allows the delivery of the required thermal (radio frequency) energy to the target area. It further uses a revolutionary “Thermal Image Guidance,” which allows physicians to monitor actual epidermal skin temperatures to ensure precision of the heating effect while maintaining safe skin temperatures.
What areas can be improved?
Ideal for people with sagging or loose skin, the treatment can improve the lower face, jowls, neck, abdomen, love handles, arms, and thighs.
