Dr. Richard Gentile a board certified Facial Plastic Surgeon with offices in Youngstown, Akron and Cleveland Ohio was a featured speaker at the Advance Aesthetics & Cosmetic Dermatology Symposium in Marina Del Rey California in January 2015, and at he Foundation for Facial Aeshtetic Surgery in Atlanta Georgia in March 2015. Dr. Gentile was interviewed on some of the exciting new technology options on Aesthetic MD Insider on March 24, 2015. To Listen to Interview “How Technology Is Changing The Face of Cosmetic Surgery” …..Press here “ThermiRF like SmartLipo Triplex uses real time temperature monitoring to enable subcutaneous laser and energy based procedures to be performed in a safer and more controlled environment . It allows surgeons to get to a therapeutic endpoint with overshooting the amont of energy used for the treatment.“ Radiofrequency (RF) has been used safely in cardiology, pain management, dermatology, plastic surgery and other medical specialties for over 75 years. ThermiRF’s technology allows physicians to precisely locate an area for treatment, and then apply a specific dose of controlled radiofrequency energy to a portion of the targeted area. The ThermiRF platform addresses wrinkle reduction, body contouring,lifting, relaxation of frown lines and skin tightening with both non invasive and minimally invasive applications. Effective minimally invasive procedures provide outcomes where less is more. Dr. Gentile notes…”as a technology expert we see many devices come along but ThermiRF actually offers some new and interesting options not previously available. “One new option is the use of the heat sensitive infrared camera which helps to guide the procedure. Be able to visualize the energy delivery in the subcutaneous tissue is a safe option when doing these technology driven procedure. On our IPad we can actually pinpoint where the temperature is highest. This protects against excess energy being delivered which can result in pain or patient burns. Gentile notes “We are pleased to be the first in Ohio to offer this technology and to be asked to participate in the Clinical Advisory Council of ThermiAesthetics.
