Science of Heat
Multi-procedure platform using temperature as a clinical endpoint:
- Smooth skin @ 42C
- Shrink fibrous septae @ 55-65C
- Melt fat @ 70C
- Disable nerves @ 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 subdermal skin tightening.” The ThermiRF system is used along with a tiny thermistor probe, which is inserted under the skin using local anesthesia, to heat subdermal 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 maintening safety.
