The holidays are just around the corner, but it’s not too late to indulge in a little holiday cheer of your own. Cosmetic procedures can give you the improvement you need to look and feel your best throughout the season. At Dr. Andrews Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, non-surgical treatments using state-of-the-art technology are now available to enhance your appearance without putting a damper on your holiday plans.
If forehead lines are making you look older than you feel, now is the time to schedule your ThermiRase treatment at Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery. We offer this revolutionary treatment as an alternative to Botox, offering equally outstanding but longer-lasting results than the popular injectable. ThermiRase uses radiofrequency energy to relax facial muscles that lead to facial lines, smoothing away those telltale signs of aging before your first Christmas party rolls around.
ThermiRase is primarily designed to treat vertical lines between the eyebrows known as glabellar lines or “frown lines.” The minimally-invasive treatment uses a small probe inserted just under the surface of the skin to deliver radiofrequency energy along the path of the facial nerve. The heat from the RF energy disrupts the nerve’s ability to contract the facial muscle that leads to the formation of the wrinkles. Local anesthesia is used to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure.
The entire procedures typically takes less than 30-60 minutes to perform. There is minimal downtime after a ThermiRase procedure, with most patients returning to their regular schedules right away or the following day. Results will be apparent immediately following the procedure, with a smoother appearance and a significant reduction in facial lines. At the same time, your muscle will not be completely paralyzed, so you will still be able to make natural facial expressions after treatment.
Unlike Botox injections, which typically last 3-4 months, ThermiRase treatments may last 12-24 months before a touch-up procedure is needed.
ThermiRase is a new cosmetic treatment that is only offered by a limited number of plastic surgeons and medical spas. The technology is now available at Dr. Andrews Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. To learn more about ThermiRase, contact our office today at 319-800-6877.
