ThermiRF Chicago

If you are thinking of improving the appearance of your wrinkles, lax skin and also remove excess fat areas on your body, ThermiRF a body sculpting treatment could be helpful. The RF treatment should be done in an accredited surgical facility and is usually done on an outpatient basis as it has less significant downtime. A board-certified plastic surgeon or a qualified aesthetician should perform the procedure for your safety. Dr. Bloch is a board-certified plastic surgeon from the Chicagoland area who can perform the procedure for you at his state of the art facility, Body by Bloch.

What is ThermiRF™?

ThermiRF™ is a radio-frequency technology which heats up fat cells via a catheter inserted beneath your skin through a tiny incision. Destroyed fat cells are expelled from your body through urination. The RF treatment is minimally invasive and has been cleared by the FDA for aesthetic applications which include destruction of fat deposits, disruption of wrinkle-causing nerves and reconstruction of sub-dermal skin layers. ThermiRF™ treatment tightens areas that were once saggy and it has collagen stimulating capabilities which rejuvenate the onset of laxity. Puffy areas with fat are also made leaner for a more sculpted contour.

How does ThermiRF™ work?

Target treatment areas with ThermiRF™ are injected with local anesthesia. After you are comfortable enough, Dr. Bloch will make a tiny incision in your treatment area using a needle through which a cannula will be inserted. The incision scar will almost be invisible. The cannula is the source of heat and its energy heats up the underlying tissue beneath your skin thus melting fat and preparing it for excretion from your body. Temperature is closely monitored during the treatment process. Heat produced by the cannula stimulates collagen production which in turn corrects skin laxity that usually comes about after fat reduction. Wrinkle-causing nerves are also damaged by the heat in the treatment process. You will be able to go home after treatment and your aesthetician will guide you on instructions to follow for a smooth recovery.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

To find out if you are an ideal candidate for ThermiRF™, consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist will be necessary. You will likely be a good candidate for the radio frequency treatment if:

  • You are physically healthy with no underlying conditions
  • You have fat pockets that have not responded to diet or exercise.
  • You have signs of early skin laxity
  • You desire some sculpting on your face
  • You want a longer lasting wrinkle improvement solution.

Dr. Bloch considers patients with realistic expectations and a positive attitude towards the fat removal treatment.

How long does the ThermiRF™ procedure take?

ThermiRF™ treatment session includes marking out of areas to be treated, admission of anesthesia and skin tightening or fat removal processes. Treatment generally lasts for about 30 to 60 minutes. The treatment timeframe will, however, vary among individuals and it may, therefore, depend on the number and size of treatment areas. You will be discharged on the same day of treatment as long as your condition is stable.

What areas can be treated with ThermiRF™?

The ThermiRF™ can remove fat and tighten loose skin in different body areas at the same time in treatment of cellulite. Body areas which can have their volume reduced include the axillary fold, face, chin, jaw line, neck, upper arms, knees, love handles and other areas with mild to moderate skin laxity. The ThermiRF™ dual capabilities in fat removal and skin tightening in body contouring eliminate the need for additional treatment options.
