What Is It?
ThermiRase is toxin free disabling of nerves. It is a three-step process of stimulating nerves, injecting an anesthetic, and then treating with ThermiRF (radio frequency). It has proven to be very effective in controlling the glabellar frown lines (those 11’s between the eyebrows), and effective results are shown in other areas of the forehead and the neck as well. Furthermore, it can be used for skin tightening, fat melting, and even reducing underarm sweating.
How Does It Work?
During the procedure, Dr. Atkins will create a thermal lesion along the nerve pathway that controls the muscles associated with unwanted face and neck lines. She locates the nerve, injects a drop of local anesthesia, and applies heat for about one minute, disabling the nerve and, therefore, reducing the appearance of hard scowl lines or other fine lines and wrinkles.
What Should I Expect?
You will see the effects immediately. It is normal to have redness, swelling, tingling, intermittent numbness and bruising for anywhere from 3-10 days after the procedure. Eighty percent of tested patients show lasting results even past one year of treatment.
