Nowadays, there is a high demand for non-surgical cosmetic treatments, and Thermiis helping to meet that demand. Thermi is a well-known aesthetic technology company that offers a range of non-surgical cosmetic applications including ThermiRase and ThermiTight. Physicians have been raving about the benefits of these procedures, but what is the difference between ThermiRase and ThermiTight. Before comparing ThermiRase and ThermiTight, let’s take a brief look at each of them in turn. What is ThermiRase? ThermiRase is an FDA cleared treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to smooth away wrinkles. It’s particularly effective for eliminating those annoying wrinkles between the eyebrows (frown lines), which tend to pop up when you furrow your brow. ThermiRase works by treating the nerves that causes the muscles to contract. How it works The physician will first map out the nerves that need to be treated, using an external nerve simulator. The device is then applied to those areas, and the heat penetrates down into the tissues, raising the temperature to between 80-85 degrees Celsius. This is enough to cause damage to the nerve, so that it is no longer able to function. Once the nerves that cause you to frown are damaged, you’re going to have a much more natural look. The effects of ThermiRase are long lasting, and the procedure takes about one hour to perform. There is some swelling after ThermiRase, and this can last for about 2 weeks. What is ThermiTight? ThermiTight is non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses RF energy to smooth and firmsagging skin on various parts of the body. It is a revolutionary treatment that can tighten the skin without scars. ThermiTight is equipped with a SmartTip thermistor probe that is used to heat the subdermal tissues. How it works The area to be treated is first infused with an anesthetic solution.A tiny electrode is then inserted below the skin and it emits controlled RF energy into the inner layers, without affecting the upper surface. The RF energy penetrates down to the deep dermal layer of the skin, where it melts fat, and precisely heats the skin to an optimal temperature that initiates tightening. The ThermiTight machine is equipped with a thermal imaging camera that allows physicians to accurately identify the areas that require treatment with the RF energy. The skin temperature is monitored during the procedure to ensure precise heating, while maintaining the safety of the skin. The procedure takes about one hour to perform, and the treated area is usually wrapped afterwards. Most patients are able to resume normal activities the following day. What is the difference between ThermiRase and ThermiTight treatments? ThermiRase and ThermiTight are both non-surgical cosmetic modalities that use RF energy, but they target different areas. Here are some key differences between the two procedures. ThermiRase is a facial rejuvenation treatment that works by disabling the nerves that cause frown lines. It’s a long-term alternative to muscle relaxing treatments like botox and dysport that target the muscles, but typically only lasts 3-6 months. ThermiTight reduces wrinkles and also tightens the skin, so it achieves a two-fold improvement in the appearance of the skin. ThermiTight is a multi-purpose skin tightening device that can be used on several parts of the body including the neck and jowls, breasts, abdomen, arms, and thighs.ThermiRase is designed for treating frown lines, as well as the bands on the neck. ThermiTight stimulates collagen and tightens the layers below the skin. The skin tightening effects of ThermiTight are enhanced because it stimulates collagen. Collagen is a key protein that the skin needs to remain firm and supple. ThermiTight penetrates down to the subdermis, where it encourages collagen production, butThermiRase does not help sagging skin.
