Skin Tightening with ThermiRF By Benjamin J Boudreaux M.D. on September 03, 2015

Northshore Plastic Surgery is privileged to introduce the ThermiRF aesthetic system to the Northshore in the New Orleans Metro area. Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and staff are ecstatic about this amazing new system and are ready to have you on board. With its new technology in radiofrequency, ThermiRF uses probes that heat up the tissues underneath the layers of the skin causing them to contract and tighten while stimulating collagen. This system is the first FDA approved technology with controlled radiofrequency for tightening of the skin.

Within the ThermiRF system we will now be offering ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth and ThermiVa.

ThermiTight is used when you have a small amount of slack skin in areas like the abdomen, arms, neck, “bra fat” and thigh. Basically, this can be used in areas anywhere below the chin line. This procedure also works in conjunction with liposuction when tightening and overall reduction to the area is needed. Dr. Boudreaux is now practicing this technology with cellulite reduction, skin tightening, wrinkle reduction and body contouring. This procedure is minimally invasive with little to no downtime required and results being achieved with only one treatment. Tightening can be noticed within the first few weeks following a procedure.

In this industry we have found that the neck and chin areas have been some of the first areas that women and men complain about when showing age the fastest. ThermiTight is the answer to your problems if this is also a concern for you. This system has been the go-to for that “double chin”, melting away the fat and tightening the loose skin along the neck. Administered under local anesthesia this works great for patient who aren’t looking for surgery just yet.

ThermiSmooth is the non-invasive skin smoothing technology that uses a specially designed thermistor hand piece running off of the same radiofrequency as the ThermiTight except it is completely non-invasive. This treatment delivers precise amounts of heat along the skins surface to areas like the “crows feet”, glabella and around the mouth. These treatments are usually done more than once to achieve the desired result and are performed by an aesthetician. The non-invasive ThermiSmooth treatment is also very painless. Patients have reported that it feels like a hot massage. Who wouldn’t enjoy that? In addition, you are getting rid of those unwanted wrinkles at the same time! Our licensed medical aesthetician would be pleased to assist you in scheduling your one hour complimentary consult to discuss your ThermiSmooth treatment.

ThermiVa, an all new vaginal rejuvenation technique that can give you back the boost of confidence you may be looking for. This non-surgical technique is not only an aesthetic procedure but is doing wonders for functional impairment as well. After giving vaginal birth or maybe just symptoms of aging you can experience some loosening or laxity of the skin. ThermiVA will let you take control of situations such as urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness. It will even enhance your enjoyment of sexual activities.

The ThermiVa procedure consists of a licensed medical professional such as one of our RN’s that perform the procedure. Our office staff with assist you with scheduling once you have become comfortable and are ready to move forward.  ThermiVa starts out with a hand held wand that is used to deliver controlled radiofrequency to the areas of desired treatment. ThermiVa is also a completely painless procedure, during treatment you will feel somewhat of a warm sensation.  Heat from this process will stimulate collagen which in turn tightens the vaginal tissues. The procedure lasts around 30 minutes and is done in the office setting.
