ThermiRF Versus Ultherapy

Dermatology, Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
for NYC, Manhattan & Worldwide


Sagging or lax skin can make your appearance seem older than you actually may be. Fortunately, there are treatments available that can safely and effectively tighten your skin so you look as young as you feel.

At JUVA Skin & Laser Center, we are proud to offer ThermiRF treatments as a minimally-invasive and safe treatment for your sagging skin. If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation to discuss ThermiRF treatments with our Manhattan dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, please call us at (212) 688-5882.

What Is ThermiRF?

ThermiRF is a radiofrequency treatment that is designed to help tighten skin in multiple areas. It is an ideal Ultherapy alternative.

Our Manhattan dermatologist will utilize the ThermiRF laser system to send radio frequency waves into your desired area. These waves will heat the inner layers of tissue and stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a primary foundation for healthy and youthful skin, so, by encouraging its production, your skin cells will naturally look younger. ThermiRF is minimally-invasive and requires little downtime, so you can return to your busy schedule immediately. Typically, one treatment is required. You will be pleased with your results as you notice your skin tightening and looking more youthful.

ThermiRF is FDA-approved and can be used on the following areas:

  • Neck
  • Jowls
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen

Our New York dermatologist is pleased with the incredible results from using ThermiRF and is proud to offer it to our clients. In contrast, there is Ultherapy, which can’t treat as many areas of the body.

What Is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is similar to ThermiRF in that they both are treatments used to tighten areas of skin that have lost some of their tautness. Ultherapy is ultrasound therapy that is used to stimulate collagen production in the inner layers of the skin, resulting in tighter, younger-looking skin. It is also FDA-approved but it is very painful. It can only be used on the following areas:

  • Brow
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Chest
