Are you starting to notice the facial lines and wrinkles that come with age? There are many non-invasive and minimally-invasive procedures on the market that can help to smooth away wrinkles. While Botox is often the most popular option, there is now a longer lasting alternative: ThermiRase.
As we age, out skin loses collagen and elasticity, often causing sagging and loose skin. ThermiRase is an FDA-approved treatment for frown lines and wrinkles in the facial area. Using radiofrequency (RF) energy, ThermiRase ablates nerves to stimulate nerves below the skin. The main goal is to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles for a smoother facial appearance.
Both men and women who are noticing wrinkles and lines on their face can often benefit from ThermiRase. A consultation with Dr. Basile can help to best determine if this treatment is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Basile will educate you on the procedure, as well as go over any questions or concerns that you may have.
During the minimally invasive ThermiRase procedure, radiofrequency will be used to target specific tissues, ablating the nerves which cause wrinkles to form. A local anesthetic is used and a small probe will be inserted under the skin and generate a radiofrequency to create smoother looking skin. Similar to Botox, ThermiRase works by preventing muscles from contracting, while still creating natural looking results. One treatment usually takes 30 minutes to perform.
Following the procedure, patients may experience swelling, though this should dissolve with time. Patients often need one week for full recovery, though this will differ from patient to patient. Results are very long-lasting, with some patients reporting results lasting up to two years!
