ThermiRase™, information pills has been FDA approved for nerve ablation. A nerve stimulator is used to locate the nerves which cause the vertical frown lines between the brows, sale the radiofrequency probe inserted through a needle type hole, unhealthy placed against the nerve, and the nerve ablates. Studies up to two years post treatment show that 85% of the patients treated with this modality still do not have sufficient muscle movement to warrant another application or a Botox® treatment. The ThermiRase treatment is more complex and costly than a Botox® injection, but in the long term can be more cost effective and will minimize the need for frequent Botox® injections. This procedure can be performed in a surgical suite under local anesthesia as a stand along procedure, or can be combined with other procedures as an add-on to other cosmetic procedures, with minimal down time.
WHAT IS THERMIRASE?
ThermiRase is a procedure to treat frown lines between the eyes with RF energy.
RF (Radio Frequency) is a type of electrical energy that can be precisely controlled and thereby be delivered very accurately.
RF energy has been used in medicine abundantly, including treatments of the heart, and nerves in the back for pain management.
This controlled, specific energy source allows our physician to directly target the nerves to the frowning muscle complex.
WHAT WILL THERMIRASE DO FOR MY FROWN LINES?
The ThermiRase procedure will treat the nerves that are accountable for causing muscles to frown. There are 2 major nerves that are treated, one that runs from the outer to the middle of the eyebrow and the other that runs along the side of the nose. These nerves will have RF energy applied to them with a pencil like probe. The very tip of the probe is used to apply RF energy along the path of the nerve to interrupt nerve function.
HOW DOES MY DOCTOR KNOW WHAT NERVES TO TREAT?
Your board certified physician will take photographs and observe the action of your frown to determine the best way to treat your frown lines. He will also make markings on your skin before the procedure to determine the best treatment approach. He will use the built in nerve stimulator to track down the nerves as they travel to the frowning muscles and treat them with Radio Frequency.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT THE TREATMENT TO FEEL LIKE?
The physician will inject a local anesthetic to numb the areas. He will then insert the probe first, at the outer edges of your eyebrows and second, alongside your nose to locate and treat the nerves. During the nerve location process, you may feel a slight tingling.
Then the physician will deliver the RF energy to treat the nerve.
HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT THE THERMIRASE PROCEDURE TO LAST?
Clinical research has shown that the effects of the procedure may last 12 months or more. Results may vary.
ARE THERE ANY TOXINS INJECTED DURING THIS PROCEDURE?
No, the procedure is a toxin-free application of RF energy only.
WHERE WILL THE TREATMENT BE PERFORMED?
The ThermiRase treatment will be performed at 4Ever Young Aesthetics & Wellness conveniently located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED TO HAVE?
One treatment should last one year or more.
HOW SOON WILL I BE ABLE TO RETURN TO MY NORMAL DUTIES AFTER THERMIRASE?
Many of our patients return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure. However, we highly recommend taking it easy for the next 24 to 48 hours.
WHAT WILL I LOOK AND FEEL LIKE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
You may feel numbness from the injection of anesthesia. You may also have sensitivity to pressure at the treatment sites for several weeks. There is a small chance of bruising and/or swelling around eye area from the procedure. Swelling generally resolves within 24 to 48 hours, and bruising can last several days. The probe insertion site is well healed within 24 to 48 hours typically.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT MY FROWN TO LOOK LIKE AFTER THERMIRASE?
You can expect to have a relaxed, more natural appearance to the brow. You will retain some mild muscle function. Your brow will not be frozen. Lines and wrinkling in the frown area will improve over time, but deeply ingrained lines may not completely disappear without the use of a filler.
