New to the Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery Center, ThermiRF is an aesthetic device that uses temperature-controlled radio frequency, allowing our physicians to treat skin issues with temperature as a clinical end point.
Capable of performing two separate procedures, the ThermiRF system can be used for both skin tightening and resurfacing.
ThermiTight is a skin tightening procedure performed with the ThermiRF system. ThermiRF is the first aesthetic technology that uses thermistor-regulated radio frequency energy to achieve desired cosmetic results. The ThermiRF system uses a tiny treatment probe to gently heat specific tissues to a pre-determined therapeutic temperature. With ThermiRF, the doctor applies a controlled amount of thermal energy to targeted tissue. The tip of the tiny probe provides constant feedback of the actual temperature during treatment. In addition, an infrared camera is used to monitor skin temperature to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective.
The ThermiTight procedure usually lasts under an hour. Afterward, a gentle wrap is applied. Patients are then able to resume their usual activities the next day.
ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive procedure which uses radio frequency for improving skin laxity. It is ideal for treating the problem areas around the eyes, mouth, cheeks and neck.
Using the ThermiRF device, the doctor gently heats the skin surface using controlled RF energy which stimulates collagen remodeling.
Generally a series of 3-4 treatments are required to achieve the best results but there is no down time and ThermiSmooth is a gentle, non-invasive procedure. Many patients report the procedure feels just like a warm massage.
ThermiRF provides a truly precise and safe delivery system that acutely directs the proven science of tissue heating to therapeutic targets to produce meaningful and safe cosmetic results.

Laser Tattoo Removal
We are excited to announce the addition of Laser tattoo removal to our otherwise comprehensive menu of laser- and light-based procedures at the Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery Center.
The Sandstone Tri-Lase Q-Switched Laser with three different wavelengths to employ safe and effective tattoo removal has been acquired by the office. This process requires multiple treatments, but can be conducted safely at intervals of six to eight weeks apart. Significant reduction and clearance of tattoo ink is available for all parts of the body.
With a topical anesthetic cream or a cooling device, no other anesthetic injections or treatment is necessary to achieve consistent and uniform results. Our team, experts in laser technology and procedures, has ensured thorough training and credentialing of all members of the MedSpa staff to perform the procedure of laser tattoo removal.
In addition, we've adopted innovative new protocols to help eliminate certain tattoos in a shorter period of time with fewer treatments.
KyBella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. This is accomplished by destroying the fat cells beneath the chin. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
