ThermiRase™ San Antonio
ThermiRase™ is an amazing new skin rejuvenation option that can provide significant wrinkle reduction. ThermiRase™ is a micro-invasive procedure that uses radio frequency to target and partially disable the nerve pathways in the face that cause repeated muscle contractions that result in lines and wrinkles. Dr. Constance Barone is proud to offer ThermiRase™ at her San Antonio office for patients who want smoother, younger-looking facial skin. Contact us today to learn more about this and other Thermi™ treatments.
How ThermiRase™ Works
ThermiRase™ is one of three treatments performed with the ThermiRF™, an innovative system that administers radiofrequency through specialized probes. For the ThermiRase™ application, Dr. Barone will administer radiofrequency at a temperature that creates thermal lesions in nerve pathways at strategic points. This prevents these nerve pathways from contracting the facial muscles that create wrinkles and lines over time.
First, Dr. Barone will gently stimulate the nerves in the face that control frowning. By locating the nerves, she can create more effective lesions across the nerve pathways. These lesions disable nerve impulses, allowing specific facial muscles to remain relaxed.
Dr. Barone will apply local anesthetic before administering the treatment to ensure your best possible comfort. The radio frequency is administered at approximately 185 degrees for about a minute, using a SmartTip™ probe with Injector Port™ to reach the targeted nerve pathway. Unlike BOTOX® Cosmetic, ThermiRase™ works immediately.
The results of ThermiRase™ treatment can last for one to two years when properly administered by a professional like Dr. Barone. To ensure that she properly targets each nerve, she will stimulate them and continue to administer radio frequency until patients are unable to make frown lines. This treatment has several features that make it very safe. Dr. Barone monitors the temperature of the skin and other tissues during treatment using the SmartTip™ probe, which can read and quickly adjust the heat. All Thermi™ treatments allow Dr. Barone to carefully monitor the amount of heat being delivered to the treatment area.
Candidates for ThermiRase™
ThermiRase™ is an excellent treatment option for patients who want a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance, but are not quite ready for more invasive treatments such as a facelift. ThermiRase™ treatment involves no recovery time, and patients see immediate results. Patients who regularly receive BOTOX® Cosmetic may also enjoy ThermiRase™ because it can last twice as long or longer than injectable treatments.
In addition to frown lines, ThermiRase™ can treat wrinkles that develop between the eyebrows, also known as the "elevens." This treatment may also be used in conjunction with other Thermi™ treatments like ThermiSmooth™, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles. We also offer ThermiTight™, a treatment that targets the deeper layers of skin to produce a tightening effect.
