HOT is the New Cool: The Beauty of Heat


In the search for the best types of minimally invasive skin tightening treatments, we may find a myriad of procedures the world of aesthetics continuously present to us. Name a body part, any body part, and there is now a way to tighten it, smooth it, plump it or slim it down. Many have resorted to magic diet pills or other methods in trying to find a short cut to losing fat and looking younger with no pain and no downtime.

The latest report by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons shows the United States is the leading country for surgical cosmetic procedures with more than 1 million performed each year. CoolSculpting became the latest craze in removing fat without surgery since the patient could obtain results without having to go under anesthesia for a major surgery that would require weeks of recovery. The device used on CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells directly below it; once they’re frozen, the fat cells drain naturally from the body. Although these are frozen permanently, there are still other surrounding fat cells that can expand and for this reason it is important the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercise regularly. This is where the beauty of heat comes in making a difference. The coolest innovations in non invasive treatments now involve HEAT to the targeted areas providing better and longer lasting results.
Dr. Barry Di Bernardo, a widely accomplished plastic surgeon and sought after expert in ThermiTight, ThermiSmooth and ThermiVa not only teaches these treatments worldwide but also utilizes them in his practice in Montclair, New Jersey. He is at the forefront of non invasive aesthetic procedures delivering surgical like results without surgery.
These procedures are non surgical treatments to reduce unwanted fat, tighten skin and smooth out texture in various areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, abdomen and thighs. It can provide a longer lasting alternative to injectable neurotoxins or it can be a minimally invasive alternative to a facelift.
Like CoolSculpting, ThermiSmooth treatments are performed on the surface of the skin but the difference is ThermiSmooth works by melting of the fat with gentle heat. The patient will lose fat as the radio frequency energy is focused on targeted fat cells in a controlled manner. As a result, skin will appear smoother in texture. In ThermiTight, the heat energy is delivered through a thin probe that is inserted underneath the patient’s skin. The energy heats the deeper layers of the tissue, causing the fat to melt and may also stimulate the natural production of collagen. It helps improve the condition of skin laxity in the treated areas.
ThermiVa is the newest of these radiofrequency treatments promising women who are experiencing excessive vaginal muscles stretching due to aging or vaginal birth, to reclaim their youthfulness and well-being.
Each of these Thermi treatments are designed to reverse the effects of aging by targeting tissues causing loose skin; making skin tighter and younger looking. Results can be seen immediately and improve over time. Now, that is HOT!
