Thermal Monopolar uses proprietary monopolar radiofrequency technology which is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) therapy that can smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger-looking appearance.
Thermal Monopolar uses radiofrequency energy to create heat and penetrate the surface of the skin to deliver uniform volumetric heating into the dermal and subcutaneous layers of the skin to help naturally tighten, contour underlying tissue and increase the production of collagen. It is a technology that uses heating to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles.
Your body regenerates collagen and actually produces new collagen. Collagen matrix thickens and creates a smoothing effect. Continued improvements and contouring for the next six months.
During your consultation, we will discuss your goals and tailor a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. Once we have completed your consultation, you will be asked to relax on a comfortable bed while the technician marks the skin with grid lines to use as a guide. Then, ultrasound gel is used with a wand to apply radiofrequency energy to the designated area/s. The energy from the Thermal Monopolar wand heats collagen in the dermis, the skin's lower layers, which makes the collagen fibers contract. This contraction, proponents believe, tightens the epidermis and makes it look smoother, younger looking appearance. Cooling can be used after the heat in order to cool and eleviate any discomfort.
Thermal Monopolar uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to deliver an electrical current that generates heat through the inherent electrical resistance of dermal and subcutaneous tissue.
To simplify the physics of the process, Thermal Monopolar directs an electrical current to the skin. This electrical energy is met by the cells in these areas. Their resistance converts the radiofrequency (RF) energy into heat energy.
This heats collagen in the lower skin layers, causing two things:
Thermaal Monopolar is non ablative, meaning its effects happen under the skin, leaving the skin surface intact. This translates into much shorter downtime.
Each pulse is accompanied by cooling before, during, and after pulse delivery. This prevents damage to the skin, limiting all the effects of Thermal Treatment to deeper tissue.
