Los Angeles Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon is excited to be utilizing a new type of facelift. Dr. Carlo Honrado is one of the first physicians in the nation to possess this technology and also serves on the Board of Directors for ThermiLift.
Radio frequency energy is used in this treatment to tighten skin, reduce fat, and eliminate frown lines in the forehead. During the procedure, a tiny probe is inserted beneath the dermal tissue, penetrating further than traditional light-based treatments. When heated, this probe results in the shrinking and tightening of facial tissues. In the months following the procedure, patients will experience a shrinking and retraction of fat cells beneath the skin.
ThermiLift is similar to Botox, but ThermiLift results can last for two years after the procedure has been performed, making it a perfect long-term solution for patients frustrated by drooping and loose skin. When performed on the jowls or cheeks, ThermiLift gives the appearance of a nonsurgical facelift, and these results are long-lasting as well.
“ThermiLift is a fantastic way to eliminate loose or saggy skin on a patient’s lower face and neck,” says Dr. Honrado. “This revolutionary technology even works on fat deposits in the abdomen, arms, and legs. Depending on the treatment area, multiple ThermiLift treatments may be necessary, but the end result is always the same: smooth, tight, and beautiful skin.”
