What Is ThermiRase?
Dr. Gupta is happy to offer ThermiRase procedure at the Dermatology, Laser and Vein Center. Thermi-Rase is a new, FDA approved treatment designed to lines and wrinkles on the face. Similar to Botox and Dysport, ThermiRase works by relaxing the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. ThermiRase, however, uses radiofrequency (RF) energy instead of neurotoxins. During your ThermiRase treatment, your doctor will use an external nerve stimulator to locate the nerves that need to be targeted. Then, after applying anesthetic, a probe will be inserted into your skin at the locations of these nerves and release RF energy to disrupt the nerves, paralyzing the muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. A ThermiRase treatment generally takes about 30 minutes, and has no downtime. Results are generally visible right after your treatment, and can last for 3-5 years with optimal treatment. ThermiRase is a great treatment for anyone looking for a minimally-invasive, longer lasting treatment for lines and wrinkles.

What Areas Can ThermiRase Treat?*
What Can I Expect During and After A ThermiRase Treatment?
Before your procedure, your doctor will use an external nerve stimulator to decide which nerves to treat. Next, you will be injected with anesthetic at the sites of the nerves, and a small incision will be made. Your doctor will then insert a probe into these holes, emiting RF energy which heats up and disrupts the nerves. You should be able to see results immediately as the muscles that cause the lines and wrinkles are paralyzed, and can enjoy your new relaxed yet natural appearance.* Most patients report little, if any, discomfort during their ThermiRase treatment. You may feel slight tingling as your doctor uses the nerve stimulator, and a few pricks as the anesthetic is injected, but these will be mild and go away very shortly. After treatment, you may experience some swelling or bruising, but this should go away in a few hours or days. It also is not uncommon for the treatment area to be sensitive for several weeks after treatment. Your doctor can give you suggestions before your treatment on how you can prevent or minimize side effects.
What Do Results Look Like?*
Individual Results Will Vary
Although results will vary from patient to patient, you can expect to see results similar to the ones above.*
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Only one treatment is needed to see results. However, although ThermiRase lasts longer than Botox, which on average lasts about 3 to 4 months, your results from a ThermiRase treatment are not permanent. You may have to come in again in a year or two to repeat the treatment to maintain your new smooth, wrinkle-free skin.*
