New technology for skin tightening that really works
Thermi-Gen is NEW technology. It will become available nationally in the spring of 2013. Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery is one of a few advanced centers chosen to showcase this new technology before its official release to the US market.
Thermi-GenTM is a non-surgical procedure that uses radio-frequency (RF) energy to stimulate collagen for tightening and smoothing the skin of the face, neck & body.
This procedure provides tighter, smoother, more youthful looking skin for all skin types. (safe for light and dark complexions)
Both non-invasive and minimally invasive applications are available.
- Non-invasive application is primarily used to stimulate collagen, tighten and smooth the delicate skin of the face
- Minimally-invasive application is primarily used to stimulate collagen and tighten skin the neck and body. Improvement in cellulite is also seen with this technique.
What is Unique about this new technology?
Other skin tightening devices apply different forms of energy (lasers, ultrasound or RF) to the skin surface. While this treatment is effective for the delicate skin of the face, externally applied energy has not proved very effective for tightening skin of the neck and body. When delivering the energy from the skin surface, the energy that reaches the collagen layer is not enough to result in effective skin tightening.
Thermi-GenTM technology is unique and more effective because it has an internal probe that enables the doctor to apply the treating energy BELOW the skin surface – directly to the targeted collagen layer.
Another unique feature of Thermi-GenTM is its continuous temperature monitor located on the internal probe. Unlike other devices that can only deliver and monitor energy from the skin surface, Thermi-Gen’s minimally-invasive application delivers and monitors energy BELOW the skin surface – right in the targeted collagen layer.
Delivering and continuously monitoring the energy below the skin surface enables the doctor to administer the precise amount of heat to the collagen layer required for effective skin tightening. This ensures greater comfort, safety and better results for our patients.
