Dr. Jennifer Walden believes in staying at the forefront of non-invasive technology to both tighten lax skin and reduce fat. This mirrors the public’s increasing demand for nonsurgical solutions to these signs of aging. We offer various noninvasive procedures in our MedSpa, including the Thermi250 system.
Thermi250 uses radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and reduce fat.
What is Thermi250?
As we age, our bodies produce continually less collagen and store more fat. That’s a bad daily double. Collagen production drops one additional percentage point each year after our 20th birthday. No wonder by the time we reach our 40s and 50s our skin is loose and saggy — collagen is the body’s protein responsible for underlying skin structure and support! This increasing laxity allows more wrinkles to form, increases the visibility of cellulite, and makes our skin look far less healthy.
The Thermi250 (ThermiSmooth Face and Body) uses the RF energy to produce heat which encourages the production of new collagen and elastin. Plus, the energy breaks down fat cells, smoothes cellulite, and leaves the treatment areas looking slimmer and toned.
The RF energy triggers processes that tighten the skin decrease subcutaneous fat, and stimulate blood circulation. These factors combine for notable circumference reduction.
How many treatments will I need?
Dr. Walden recommends 6-8 treatments for her patients to achieve the results they seek depending upon body site. Of course, this is unique to the individual. We space the treatments at about one per 4-6 weeks. Treatments are painless; most patients equate the heating to a feeling of hot stone massage.
