Thermafine Lift is a Radio-frequency device, known as RF, designed by Thermafine aesthetic applications for skin tightening and lifting. It is the latest in soft face lift and is non-surgical.
Basically, the Thermafine Lift is able to transmit heat to the dermal layers of the skin without affecting the epidermis. The rise in temperature causes shrinkage of existing collagen, resulting in tightening of the overlying skin.
What is the science behind RF in Skin – rejuvenation?
RF energy is part of the electromagnetic spectrum which includes gamma rays, infra-red and radio waves among others.
When RF energy is applied to tissues, electromagnetic fields cause movement of charged particles within the tissue, resulting in heat-generating molecular action. The heat causes collagen to shrink, which tightens the skin above it giving the skin a more youthful and firmer look.
Comparing the Thermafine to other RF devices, it does have its advantages over them—Thermafine is painless, relatively inexpensive, yet delivers the same results.
One treatment for the entire face takes about an hour on average. Other areas, depending on their sizes, may require more or less time. Optimal results are obtained after a series of 3 to 4 treatment with a pause of two weeks in between. The treatment is painless as it only produces a sensation of heat. Hence, no anaesthesia is needed.
This procedure is safe enough to be handled by a qualified and trained nurse.
The results vary from one patient to another depending on various factors, such as age, the area treated, and skin laxity.
The best areas to be treated by RF are in the so called periorbital area. By raising the eyebrow slightly, the face acquires a less tired and fresher expression and the lines in the targeted area are reduced.
Another zone that displays significant improvement is the cheeks and the neck, the lifting of which improves the nasobial folds, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance!
Thermafine can be combined with other treatments like Botox, IPL/FPL, non-ablative lasers and clinical skincare procedures with very good results.
The result may vary; some patients feel the improvement days later, and others will need approximately a month or more to see results.
