Skin Tightening Treatment With ThermiRF Stockton

ThermiRF (ThermiTight) delivers tighter, firmer skin without surgery


Skin elasticity is a phrase that most people don’t think about at all – until they’ve started to lose it. It happens as individuals age thanks to environmental factors and simply to the passing years. Before we become too frustrated with our skin, it’s important to remember that it has a tough job and has to stand up to factors such as the sun, pollution, changes in weight, and the aging process. While it’s protecting us, the collagen and elastin below the skin is breaking down, and over time, our skin loses firmness.

Nor do you have to undergo invasive and painful surgery to lift your face. Now, Dr. Gerald Bock of California Skin and Laser Center in Stockton, CA, offers a new solution to his patients who want to firm their skin and turn back the clock.

ThermiRF is a new technology that uses radio frequency to stimulate the collagen and firm skin on the face, neck, and body. Under local anesthesia the patient will remain comfortable and relaxed throughout the one hour session. The procedure utilizes a very small probe that is inserted through a small incision in the skin. The probe delivers energy that heats up the lowest layers of the skin, causing some fat cells to be absorbed and new collagen to be produced, while the skin begins to tighten. Even after the procedure the skin cells continue tighten for several months. While some patients notice an immediate change, for most patients the full results take up to six months to be realized.

Following the ThermiRF procedure, patients can return to their daily lives with little to no downtime. Most patients only need a single treatment and the results can last for several years. Nearly 100% of patients who undergo the procedure are pleased with the results and are happy they had it performed. You can refer to get a better understanding about this procedure.

While the procedure can be performed on many areas of the body, ThermiRF is an excellent treatment for patients who want to tighten the neck and jowl area. This is an area of the body that people see every day, but one that other treatments are simply not effective. Tightening the skin along the jawline and neck can make patients appear younger and feel more confident. Patients who wish to improve the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes or tighten and lift the eyebrows can opt for ThermiSmooth, a similar treatment that tightens skin by delivering outside heat.

ThermiTight procedure is performed by Dr. Bock himself whereas ThermiSmooth is performed by our most experienced RNs. Refer the above B&A images to see how these procedures really work.
