How does ThermiRF Work?
ThermiRF delivers its radiofrequency energy via a small probe that is inserted under the patient’s skin. It uses sustained heat at a calibrated temperature to achieve long-lasting skin-smoothing results. When the tissue beneath the skin is heated, the body begins producing new collagen that in turn tightens and smooths skin in the affected area.
The probe carefully monitors the temperature to reach a safe, effective level for faster skin tightening results and longer-lasting results with fewer treatments when compared to other radiofrequency-focused procedures.
Do ThermiRF Treatments Hurt?
ThermiRF is performed using a local anesthetic, ensuring a comfortable treatment throughout. The physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York understand the importance of ensuring a positive treatment experience and will take the necessary steps to ensure your procedure is as comfortable as possible.
When Will I See Results?
Since the ThermiRF device constricts tissue, you may see some initial improvement right away. However, the primary benefits will come from the collagen boost as the radiofrequency heating triggers collagen production. Those results will become apparent within 6-8 weeks.
How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?
Downtime is minimal after a ThermiRF treatment. Some patients take a day or two off work due to the swelling and tenderness that is common after the procedure. Others return to their regular activities the same day. Rest assured you will be able to enjoy the full benefits of your ThermiRF treatments with minimal disruption to your daily schedule.

Do Men get ThermiRF Treatments?
Yes. Men can benefit from ThermiRF treatments just as much as women. This treatment helps men maintain a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance while addressing early signs of skin laxity. While men don’t tend to exhibit loose skin as early as women, the ability to keep skin firm and youthful can be a significant benefit for men who are competing in the work and social sphere with a younger generation.
