IRVING, Texas, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermi®, an Almirall S.A. company, today announced the introduction of ARVATI™, its next-generation 510K FDA-cleared, true temperature-controlled radiofrequency platform with patented technology that powers a range of Thermi's unique and comprehensive procedures that is now commercially available in the United States. ARVATI delivers rapid, precise, and consistently controlled output of radiofrequency to tissue, thus inducing positive tissue change by stimulating collagen production to enhance various skin areas, including intimate tissue. The ARVATI platform is built upon increased power as well as optimized two-way real time temperature-controlled algorithms.
The new ARVATI platform includes the well-established treatment applications of ThermiTight®, ThermiRase®, ThermiSmooth® Face and ThermiVa®, used by clinicians to address common signs of aging, and/or weight loss, which may include fine lines, post-baby body, loose skin, and intimate tissue laxity.
ARVATI amplifies the science of heat with EPIC Technology™. With optimized radiofrequency delivery, ARVATI provides consistent dosage of heat while keeping clinicians in complete control throughout the treatment. The technology also features an enhanced 50-watt capacity generator, which maximizes the power to efficiently treat all body areas while helping clinicians reach desired set temperatures 63 percent faster, thereby significantly reducing total treatment times. Additionally, ARVATI includes intelligent software that offers real-time temperature monitoring with control algorithms that ensures a consistent temperature and radiofrequency dosage throughout the treatment with all the ARVATI modalities. Initial experience shows temperature stays within 1 degree of the set temperature 99.7% of the treatment time, setting a new benchmark in consistent temperature control.
"We are committed to providing clinicians with science-based advanced technology that helps achieve their desires for safe and effective non-invasive aesthetic and medical treatments that work quickly, effectively, and efficiently while producing long-lasting and natural results," said Thermi President Vlad Paul-Blanc. "As the pioneers of true temperature-controlled radiofrequency for medical and aesthetic needs, we are excited to offer ARVATI to clinicians and patients looking for proven and innovative ways to address a variety of challenges that result from photoaging and damaged skin."
In advance of launching ARVATI, the experts at Thermi worked closely with clinicians who evaluated the advancements in ARVATI's performance as it relates to the enhancements in temperature-controlled radiofrequency delivery, speed, reliability, and overall functionality. The clinicians' early, first-hand experience confirms that the ARVATI platform delivers consistently fast treatment times, with controlled delivery while maintaining consistent tissue temperature throughout each treatment. During the early evaluation, patients also found their treatments to be comfortable and fast, and registered high satisfaction overall post-procedure.
As part of the ARVATI launch, existing Thermi customers in the U.S. will be offered the opportunity to acquire the ARVATI platform at a significant discount, and ARVATI will become available in other markets around the world in the near-term.
A Few Words from Thermi Physicians About Their Initial ARVATI Experience:
"In my office, I use a variety of Thermi treatments to tighten and improve the appearance of skin all over the body including on the face and jawline, around the arms and abdomen and the vaginal area," said dermatologist Dr. Mitchel Goldman. "Safety and convenience are key considerations for my patients, and with ARVATI, they are thrilled with the results."
According to plastic surgeon, Dr. Stanley Okoro, "Thermi's new platform, ARVATI, is very versatile and allows me to treat many different conditions. It is by far the most used machine in my practice. Worth it! I love the machine!"
Dr. Leonard Miller, plastic surgeon and founder of Thermi's original temperature-controlled capability, stated, "The ARVATI platform - with advanced instrumentation and faster procedure time - makes it easier to do treatments accurately and I can now do larger areas more effectively."
"Three excellent modifications," said urogynecologist Dr. Jeffrey Dell, "1) Definitely faster rise in temperature; 2) I can see that I'm delivering more consistent and stable radiofrequency and 3) the speed has no negative impact to patient comfort."
