One of the newest, most revolutionary skin tightening treatments available today is the insertion of a gentle heat probe underneath the epidermis. The Thermi and Thermi 250 procedure is a safe, approved method of reducing the amount of cellulite in the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs. Unlike chemical treatments, the Thermi heat method actually causes the built-up fat to decrease in volume through simple melting away of fatty tissue.
How the Procedure Works
Patients are examined closely and the affected areas analyzed. Depending on the size of the swollen fatty areas and the amount of cellulite buildup, a schedule of one or more heat treatments is recommended.
The patient is injected in several locations with a specialized skin and tissue anesthetic. This prevents any experience of pain while the Thermi probe is used. The probe is inserted directly underneath the epidermis, and the procedure may include the heating of several different layers of the inner skin and uppermost fat layer.
Most sagging, wrinkling skin that has lost a good deal of elasticity is caused by the increase in stored fat. Unfortunately, for many people this occurs in the abdomen and upper thighs. The Thermi treatment is designed to melt away some of the excess cellulite tissue, the result being a tighter skin covering and increased elasticity.
What to Expect
The heat treatments last for only about one hour. After the heat applications to the appropriate areas, a warm wrap is applied that keeps the area numb for a short while. The patient will feel no pain, and any numbness wears off the same day. He or she can resume normal activities almost immediately. There are no known side effects, and the treatment can be repeated soon afterwards.
Specialized Heat Monitoring
Each patient will undergo a customized cellulite reduction treatment. The amount of fatty tissue, the degree of skin wrinkling, and the thickness of each skin layer determines the amount of heat applied. The heat regulation is carefully monitored, and each treatment duration is determined by the number of layers through which the probe is inserted.
Who Are Candidates For Thermi Treatment?
Individuals with sagging bellies, excessively large love handles, unsightly cellulite buildup in the abdomen or thighs, and large wrinkles or folds caused by fat deposits are ideal candidates for Thermi and Thermi 250 heat treatments.
In most cases, cellulite buildup causes unsightly folds or the dreaded “cottage cheese” look, and the most effective way to reduce the size of these deposits is to melt away the cellulite through the use of a controlled heat probe. This treatment often includes the use of a Thermi heat probe at the sub-dermis, deep fat, or nerve layers, and the stimulation results in an almost immediate decrease in the amount of fat buildup.
