What is ThermiRase?
ThermiRase is a radiofrequency (RF) device FDA-approved for platysma relaxation. This micro-invasive procedure uses radiofrequency energy to deactivate targeted nerves that that cause neck bands to prominently protrude.
ThermiRase Radiofrequency Platysma Relaxation
Radiofrequency has been used for years in cardiology, dermatology and pain management. The ThermiRase RF system precisely delivers radiofrequency energy to disrupt the function of the nerves that activates the platysma muscle. A special probe is used to create a series of thermal lesions along the nerve pathways. The ThermiRase RF system is equipped with heat sensors that allow for a safe and comfortable treatment.

ThermiRase Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How Does ThermiRase Compare to Botox?
Neck cords are caused by the involuntary movement of muscles controlled by motor nerves. Botox and other neurotoxins temporarily inhibit the signal transmission from these motor nerves to the muscles. These chemical neuromodulators usually work for 3-4 months before another treatment is necessary. ThermiRase is a micro-injectable procedure that uses radiofrequency to ablate the nerve. The results are immediate and last much longer (up to 18 months), avoiding the injection of a toxin.
How Many ThermiRase Treatments Will I Need?
Generally, only one ThermiRase treatment is needed to relax the neck bands and reduce their appearance.
How Soon Will I See Results After a ThermiRase Treatment?
Results are noticed immediately after one treatment. Many patients have also seen a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the neck cords.
How Long Will ThermiRase Results Last?
Although results vary from patient to patient, some have seen results last over a year and a half. Many patients can expect results to last between twelve to eighteen months.
