Body contouring using non-invasive technology is the perfect way to reduce the appearance of cellulite, build strong supporting tissue, and tighten the skin. The new Thermi250 treatment method heats up the lower layers of the skin. Much like a warm massage, the Thermi250 device delivers specific radio frequency energy and encourages the development of stronger tissue as well as increased collagen production. We highly recommend this procedure for anyone looking to smooth out the love handles and tighten up the skin in the waist and belly areas.
How RF Energy Contouring Works
The Thermi250 is a specialized device that produces a programmed delivery of radiofrequency energy. It looks like a wand and has a gentle, rounded metal tip. The wand is moved over the area to be treated, and the lower dermal layers are slowly warmed up. As the tissue temperature rises, the computer to which the wand is attached reprograms the device to deliver a different energy output.
Existing collagen shrinks and the area being treated becomes slightly inflamed. This stimulates the production of collagen, and the result is a firmer support tissue beneath the skin. Fat is also heated, and the body transports the excess fat away via the circulatory and lymphatic systems.
What Patients Should Expect
Before the Termi250 is used, a coupling gel is applied to the skin. This helps keep the epidermis from heating up and also concentrates the energy directed toward the lower dermal layers. Each section of skin being treated is subjected to the gentle heat for about five minutes.
Patients feel no discomfort. Instead, they describe the treatment process much like a gentle massage. In most cases, the treated area is allowed to cool, and the process is repeated one or two times.
As collagen production increases, the skin becomes more smooth and elastic, while wrinkles and fine lines begin to disappear. In the areas around the waist and belly, the excess fat is slightly redistributed. More importantly, however, the large folds decrease in size. The result for the patient is a smoother waist without the saggy fat deposits.
There is no danger of overheating because the temperature of the skin is constantly monitored. When the session is complete, the skin and underlying tissue quickly cools down to normal temperature. The visual results last a long time because of the increase in healthy collagen tissue.
Who Is A Candidate For Thermi250?
Adult men and women who have excess fat deposits in their abdominal areas, waist, and lower belly are certain to benefit from this type of RF contouring treatment. An initial consultation is necessary to determine the extent of the treatment. Our clients are given complete information about the effectiveness of Thermi250 during a consultation.
Thermi250 contouring is a repeatable procedure, but most patients do not need to have the procedure performed more than once or twice per year.
