Thermolifting is a procedure involving impact of infrared radiation on the skin. This brings about the effect of biostimulation of the skin and stimulate synthesis of collagen fibres. The skin becomes younger, denser, firmer and strengthened. The procedure can be performed on the face and body.
Age-related facial flaccidity results from a decrease in elasticity of collagen fibres, a decrease in skin density, and gravitational forces. A similar mechanism leads to the formation of wrinkles additionally promoted by facial movements. The skin on the body becomes flabby and not very firm. Thermolifting procedure may be used to counteract these unsightly aging changes. It consists in applying infrared radiation of 750-1800 nm wavelength to the skin. Uniform and gradual heating of the dermis to a temperature of 65 degrees Celsius causes contraction of collagen fibres, which return to their original length. In addition, fibroblasts are stimulated to synthesise new collagen fibres
Thermolifting improves facial oval, shallows wrinkles, firms face, eliminates nasolabial folds, shrinks the skin on the abdomen after pregnancy and childbirth, firms arms, thighs and the area above the knees and prevents skin density loss or loss of elasticity.
Thermolifting is a very versatile procedure with a wide range of applications. It is recommended to those who want to remove sagging cheeks and to those trying to model the body shape. The procedure restores skin firmness on the whole body; it can also be used for aging prevention. Influencing physiological ways of skin regenerating, including stimulation of collagen fibre synthesis by up to 30%, results in increased skin density. Thermolifting is an extremely effective rejuvenating procedure, performed in three phases: an intense thermal micro-damage of the skin occurs within 48-72 hours after the procedure. It causes contraction of collagen fibres and produces immediately noticeable effect of smoothing the skin and improving the facial oval
Within 3-4 weeks after Thermolifting, fibroblasts are stimulated, increasing synthesis of collagen fibres.
The last stage is re-formation of collagen fibres with an increase in skin tension.
The full result of the procedure is visible after 3-6 months and lasts from 1 to 2 years. We recommend performing a series of 3-6 procedures, repeated with a frequency of one procedure every 3-4 weeks. As a preventive measure, the procedure can be performed once a year and a half. Such a multi-phase effect of the procedure results gradual and very effective skin remodelling, rebuilding its structure and thickening collagen fibres. High effectiveness of the procedure and long-term thermolifting effect result from intense stimulation of collagen synthesis. As a result, skin density increases by up to 30%, which noticeably improves its structure and makes it more elastic. The skin is tighter, fine wrinkles are smoothed out. A lifting effect is achieved without a scalpel, as a result of creation of a dense net of collagen-elastin fibres.
I highly recommend!
Thermolifting is an innovative, extremely effective and completely non-invasive technology using infrared light. A special head made of sapphire glass emits infrared waves of 750-1800 nm. This allows for gradual and uniform heating of deeper skin layers to a temperature of 60-65 degrees. As a result of causing such a thermal effect, collagen and elastin fibre shrink. Restoration of fibres to their original length produces the effect of immediate smoothness and elasticity of the skin. In addition, skin fibroblasts are stimulated to synthesise new collagen fibres, which translates into long-term reconstruction of the skin structure, its thickening and strengthening. This means comprehensive strengthening of the skin and several weeks of remodelling, which results in gradual appearance of the rejuvenation effect. This stage of the procedure is painless and non-invasive, requiring no interruption of the skin’s continuity.
One of the initial stages of the procedure is water peel. In this part of the procedure a stream of water and air is used for completely non-invasive exfoliation of dead skin. A water stream additionally encourages blood circulation in the skin, which stimulates nutrition and oxygenation of the tissues. In addition, during water peel we can use specially composed preparations that help moisturise the skin, rejuvenate it or reduce hyperpigmentation. The peel refreshes the skin, brightens it, adds radiance and uniform colour. The treatment causes very effective, yet gentle smoothing and brightening of the skin. It is perfect even for sensitive or allergic skin or skin prone to acne.
Technology allows for performing completely non-invasive treatment that does not require recovery. Therefore, treatment is the so-called banquet treatment, after which you can immediately return to daily activities.
During the consultation, we discuss a desired effect and select appropriate parameters. During the procedure, the only thing that the Patient feels is soothing heat. The procedure is not painful, and is often described as pleasant.
A series of thermolifting procedures results in improvement of the skin condition and reduction of its flabbiness. In addition, the procedure can be performed prophylactically to prevent skin structure loosening. The most important advantage of facial thermolifting is comprehensive remodelling of the skin, effectively removing the most problematic signs of aging. Noticeable improvement in skin firmness on the abdomen, arms, inner thighs and knees area improves appearance of the body and rejuvenates it. The procedure is perfect for those who are looking for a way to get rid of loose skin after weight loss; In some cases can successfully replace abdominal plastic surgery. Facial effect of the treatment is getting rid of nasolabial folds, lifting cheeks, smoothing wrinkles, improving facial oval and elasticity of the skin. The treatment helps to eliminate loose skin on the neck and chin.
The procedure does not require much preparation.
Do not consume alcohol, caffeine or drugs 24 hours before the procedure.
Also, discontinue any blood thinners and ointments with retinoids.
Recovery is very good, only with the highest parameters used, the Patient may experience slight tenderness and redness.
There are not many contraindications to thermolifting, but they must be taken into consideration. Below you will find the most important of them.
In case of advanced diabetes healing is impaired. However, when treated and controlled, diabetes is not a problem. If you have diabetes, please ask your attending physician for a written consent for the cosmetic medicine procedure and present it to us on the day of the procedure.

Chemo- and radiotherapy
Steroids, except asthma medications and inhaled steroids, taken less than one month prior to the scheduled procedure.
Fungal medications or antibiotics taken less than one week prior to the procedure.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding. We do not perform procedures in pregnant ladies or nursing mothers, even with the physician’s consent. When it comes to children, one can’t be too careful!
