Groff_Thermi1At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we pride ourselves in bringing patients the latest and most innovative cosmetic treatments. Our team of renowned dermatologists now offer patients a new minimally-invasive aesthetic treatment! Patients with sagging skin, wrinkles, and excess fat deposits can now benefit from the revolutionary ThermiLift™ in San Diego.

What Is ThermiLift™?

The San Diego ThermiLift™ is a cosmetic treatment that uses targeted radiofrequency energy in order to sculpt the body, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and tighten the skin. The device delivers the radiofrequency energy to the treatment area which generates the appropriate amount of heat necessary to promote collagen growth and melt unwanted fat cells. The results are smooth and firm skin that can make patients look years younger. The system is FDA-Approved and has temperature controls to ensure complete patient safety during the entire treatment. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our experts are able to give patients the look they’ve always wanted without undergoing unnecessary surgical procedures.

San Diego ThermiLift™ Can Be Used For:

Body Sculpting

For patients with small, stubborn fat deposits that are not responding to diet or exercise, the minimally-invasive ThermiLift™ system allows our board-certified dermatologists to remove excess fat cells and contour the body. During the treatment, a small cannula is placed under the skin in order to access the unwanted fat cells. The radiofrequency energy is delivered in order to heat the fat tissue which causes the fat cells to melt. The body naturally disposes of the melted fat cells and patients are able to enjoy their newly contoured body.

Skin Tightening

groff_thermi1-One of the most telling signs of aging is skin laxity which can result in loose, sagging skin. Many people turn to extreme surgical procedures such as facelifts or necklifts in order to address the problem of loose skin. At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, we utilize a revolutionary radiofrequency device to give patients tighter, younger-looking skin without any surgery. The radiofrequency energy delivered by the ThermiLift™ stimulates our body’s own collagen growth, therefore tightening both the skin and the tissues below the surface. It can not only be used to tighten the face and neck, but also the arms and chest.


ThermiLift™ works to reduce the appearance of forehead, mouth, and under eye wrinkles. The targeted heat from the radiofrequency energy promotes collagen growth that results in tighter and smoother skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are diminished due to increased collagen production and muscles are relaxed in order to prevent future wrinkles from forming. Unlike Botox injectable treatments, the results of radiofrequency  for wrinkles can last up to two years!


Cosmetic Laser Dermatology offers an innovative new alternative to a traditional neck lift. ThermiSculpture™ in San Diego is a series of ThermiLift™ and liposculpture treatments that can mimic the effects of a full neck lift without the surgery. By using ThermiLift™ to tighten the skin initially, followed by liposculpture to eliminate excess fat, then ThermiLift™ again to tighten the remaining skin, you can get the full neck lift effect without needing to go under the knife.

ThermiSculpture™ allows for men and women to achieve dramatic results without the corresponding recovery time of a full neck lift. The minimally invasive RF procedure requires little to no recovery time, and Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego uses the tumescent liposculpture method, an advanced method in which general anesthesia is not needed. The use of local anesthesia combined with the small cannulas used in the procedure allows for less bleeding, less time needed for the procedure, and less downtime. The ThermiSculpture™ combination procedure is unique to Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, and is a great alternative to a surgical neck lift!

A Happy ThermiLift™ Patient Shares Her Story!


At Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologists are committed to helping patients understand their options when it comes to non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the innovative ThermiLift™ treatment.

Q: How is ThermiLift™ different from other treatments?

A:  It is different from traditional laser treatments because it uses temperature controlled radiofrequency energy in order to tighten the skin and melt unwanted fat tissue.

Q: Is the procedure safe?

A:  It is very safe due to the temperature controls that allow our board-certified dermatologists to keep a consistent temperature throughout the entire treatment. This reduces the risk of patients becoming burned or scarred because the doctors are able to set the temperature in advance and monitor it for the duration of the treatment session. ThermiLift™ is FDA-Approved and has been proven to be safe and effective.

Q: Is it painful?

A: This treatment is not painful and patients typically feel a warm sensation around the treatment area. Local anesthetic can be used for patients worried about pain or discomfort.

Q: Is there downtime required?

A:  Minimally invasive RF is ideal for busy patients because it requires very minimal downtime. With little recovery time, patients are able to resume their normal, daily activities in a short time frame.

Q: Am I a Good Candidate?

A: You might be a good candidate if you want to enhance your appearance and minimize the signs of aging without undergoing surgery. ThermiLift™ is great for patients who have sagging skin or mild wrinkles that they would like to treat with minimal downtime and discomfort. Patients with pockets of stubborn excess fat can also benefit from the device’s body sculpting capabilities. It is best to schedule a consultation with our experts in order to determine if this treatment is right for you.
