Science of Heat
Multi-procedure platform using temperature as a clinical endpoint:
- Smooth skin at 42C
- Shrink fibrous septae at 55-65C
- Melt fat at 70C
- Disable nerves at 85C
Energy emission is user-controlled and application specific to regulate maximum temperature during a treatment.
Thermistor-controlled Subdermal Heating
ThermiTight is the name of a peer-reviewed protocol described as “thermistor-controlled sub-dermal skin tightening.” The ThermiRF system is used along with a tiny thermistor probe, which is inserted under the skin using local anaesthesia, to heat sub-dermal tissues to a user-selected specific temperature. During the ThermiTight procedure, internal temperatures are monitored and regulated by the system computer. In addition, advanced thermal image guidance provides the physician with real time external skin temperature monitoring to ensure precision of the heating effect while maintaining safety.
ThermiRase is a micro-invasive procedure based on a peer-reviewed protocol to disable the nerves which control the muscles responsible for glabella frown lines. This procedure applies radio-frequency energy to selected motor nerves. In a recent study, the effect lasted more than one year in almost 80% of the subjects, thus validating the opportunity for a long-term alternative to neurotoxins.
