Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season filled with happiness, good company, and great food. With the start of 2018, many people have made resolutions to get healthier by focusing on diet, exercise, and overall wellness. Though healthy lifestyle changes can make us feel refreshed, they don’t always leave us looking as good as we hoped.
We offer the Thermi® products at our Houston practice that can help patients look as good as they feel without surgery. The line includes ThermiTight®, ThermiVa®, ThermiSmooth® Face, and ThermiSmooth® Body. Each treatment rejuvenates a different part of the body using temperature-controlled radiofrequency technology.
ThermiTight is used to restore firmness to lax skin in places such as the neck, breasts, arms, and abdomen. During treatment, I apply a controlled amount of heat to the targeted tissue using a tiny probe. After application, I apply a gentle wrap to the treated area. Patients can resume their normal activities within the same day.
Many of my Houston patients are concerned that childbirth, aging, and menopause have taken a toll on their labia and vaginas. This treatment is a great way to boost your confidence and restore your sexuality. Its benefits include improving sensitivity, enhancing comfort during intercourse, and improving urinary control. The ThermiVa treatment gently heats the vaginal tissue with radiofrequency energy. This triggers the growth of collagen, which can reverse some of the effects of childbirth and aging. ThermiVa is often used in combination with breast enhancement and body contouring procedures. It makes a great addition to a mommy makeover.
ThermiSmooth® Face & Body
ThermiSmooth Face can treat signs of aging on the forehead, eyes, cheeks, neck, and around the mouth. I often perform a series of 3 to 6 applications. Multiple applications typically create optimal results. ThermiSmooth Body, on the other hand, can actually create a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite. I usually advise patients to undergo a series of applications over the course of 6 to 8 weeks. I most often use ThermiSmooth Body to treat different areas affected by cellulite or sagging skin. These include the chest, breasts, arms, abdomen, flanks, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles.
Most patients say that the Thermi treatments feel a bit like a warm massage, and the treatment of each area takes only a few minutes. This makes it great for busy men and women who don’t feel like they have the time to undergo plastic surgery. Contact us to learn more about your options.
