ThermiRF Creates New Technology for Aesthetic Applications

Thermistor-Regulated Energy Delivery for Both Micro-Surgical and Non-Invasive Aesthetic Applications

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.

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
