ThermiRase in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky

Who is a candidate for ThermiRase?

Patients who have frown lines between the eyes that cause them to look angry, tired, or stressed even when they are not experiencing that emotion.

Intended Results

A more youthful facial appearance to the eye and forehead area, with patients looking more relaxed and refreshed. The muscle will NOT be frozen; you will still have some movement so you have a natural look. Results are immediate, long lasting and toxin free!

Procedure Description

ThermiRase treats the nerves that cause the muscles to frown. Two different nerves are treated to get the desired effects. Radio Frequency energy is applied to them with a pen-like probe. This RF energy works to interrupt the nerve causing the muscle to contract.

Recuperation and Healing

After the procedure you may feel numb from the anesthesia and the area may feel sensitive to pressure. There is the possibility for some swelling and bruising around the eye area. This will resolve in a few days at most. You need to protect the area from harsh sunlight and sunblock should always be applied.

Other Options

Other options include temporary treatments with Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Wrinkle Fillers. Eyelid surgery with cutting the corrugator muscle.
