ThermiRF from U.S. Dermatology Partners

What Is ThermiRF?

ThermiRF is a new technology that uses radiofrequency energy to treat tissue below the skin, rather than addressing the problems on the surface of the skin. The procedure stimulates collagen growth over time, so its effects might not be seen immediately. It is used for contouring, treating wrinkles and sagging skin, as well as being used to reduce vaginal laxity. It can also be used to reduce sweating in underarms.

Who Is a Good Candidate for ThermiRF?

Signs of Skin Cancer that Should Be Checked by a DermatologistPeople looking for more results than they’re getting from non-invasive procedures — but who aren’t ready for surgery for such things as tightening jowls and rejuvenating the face, neck and abdomen — or who want to reduce the activity of the muscles that form lines in the forehead may be good candidates for ThermiRF.

How Is ThermiRF Performed?

It uses a tiny probe with an electrode at the tip that emits tiny burst of radiofrequency energy when inserted through a needle hole in the skin.

Are There Side Effects to ThermiRF?

The most common side effects include swelling and bruising that can last for a few days. In some cases, numbness in the treated area occurs for a few days.

How Long Will ThermiRF Last?

ThermiRF treatments will begin showing visible results in about six weeks, with maximum improvement shown after four months. The results are expected to last from two to four years.
