SOUTHLAKE, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- Created by ThermiAesthetics, ThermiRF is the first aesthetic technology that applies "science of heat," using temperature as a clinical endpoint, enabling plastic surgeons and aesthetic physicians to precisely heat soft tissue and nerves to achieve desired aesthetic outcomes.
ThermiRF is cleared by the FDA for dermatologic and general surgical electrocoagulation and hemostasis, and for creation of lesions in nerve tissue. ThermiRF is the first aesthetic device to deploy simultaneous dual monitoring of tissue temperature (internal and external) using a temperature sensitive treatment probe along with advanced infrared imaging for precise and safe treatments.
Micro-invasive applicators include:
- ThermiRase: Creation of nerve lesions for toxin-free glabella relaxation, which is an alternative to neurotoxins*
- ThermiTight: Thermistor-controlled subdermal**
Non-invasive applicators include:
- ThermiSmooth: External skin treatments
- ThermiVa: Vaginal laxity (future)

Since its pre-commercial introduction in the United States in 2012, general plastic and facial plastic surgeons, dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons around the globe have used ThermiRF in a variety of clinical areas. ThermiRF applications attract patients seeking an "in-between" solution to address their cosmetic issues. There is growing demand from baby boomers who are seeking advanced, anti-aging solutions, which fall "in-between" non-invasive treatments and major surgery.
Dr. Yael Halaas, a board-certified plastic surgeon, said, "What makes ThermiTight/Lift unique is the ability to safely melt fat cells with radio frequency energy and the direct energy stimulation to collagen production where it's most needed, all leading to natural and consistent results."
Dr. Halaas was the first physician in New York to perform ThermiAesthetic procedures and now trains other physicians on the proper use of the device. Dr. Halaas also serves on the ThermiAesthetics Clinical Advisory Council, an independent body consisting of hundreds of physicians who are actively collaborating to advance the science of thermistor-regulated energy delivery and refine treatment protocols for a myriad of cosmetic applications. A number of additional applicators and studies are planned and underway to further demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of ThermiRF for a number of cosmetic conditions, such as skin laxity of the face and body, axillary hyperhidrosis, cellulite, snoring and post-child bearing vaginal laxity. The company plans to continue to expand the size and role of the Clinical Advisory Council over the next year.
The ThermiAesthetics flagship product is the ThermiRF Temperature Controlled Radio Frequency Generator System, which is FDA cleared for dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis, and to create lesions in nervous tissue. ThermiRF is an advanced technology using finely controlled thermal energy. It is a multi-use platform, which promotes increased patient safety and clinical effectiveness, while providing versatile solutions for physicians serving the aesthetic market.
ThermiRF features a unique temperature control feature and uses proprietary hand pieces, which are designed for specific medical applications. These include a variety of disposal RF electrodes and cannulas and reusable non-invasive hand pieces.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
