Dr. Elisa Burgess is pleased to offer her patients the benefits of non-invasive temperature controlled radiofrequencytechnology with Thermi. At her Portland area plastic surgery practice, Dr. Burgess can help treat problems such as loose or sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and even drooping breasts or a woman’s vaginal concerns–all without surgery and little to no downtime. Dr. Burgess wants her patients to achieve their goals, renew their self-confidence, and love the way they look, even when time is in short supply. With the revolutionary non-surgical treatments by Thermi, Dr. Burgess can help you reach your desired outcome without having to miss time from your daily life.


ThermiTight® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive option that gives women an alternate to having surgery. For the right candidate, a small probe using radiofrequency technology is used under the skin to create significant tightening. ThermiTight® is a great option for women looking for an alternative to having breast lift surgery. It is ideal for patients who are not large-breasted and also who need a minimal amount of a lift. ThermiTight® can also tighten areas such as the neck, jowls, abdomen, arms, and bra strap fat. This is typically done as a single treatment.

ThermiRF is FDA cleared for the use in dermatological and general surgical procedures for electrocoagulation and hemostasis (and to create lesions in the nerve tissue for Thermirase only).

ThermiSmooth® Body

An alternative to surgery for loose skin is a non-invasive procedure called ThermiSmooth® (body). This device is used by gently heating targeted problem areas across the skin and feels like a hot stone massage. It is controlled by radiofrequency energy that stimulates collagen remodeling, for the improvement of skin and cellulite slowly over months. There is no downtime, and it is typically done in a series of 4-6 treatments. Targeted areas are abdomen, flanks, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, arms, and ankles.

ThermiSmooth is FDA cleared to provide a temporary reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

ThermiVa® - Vaginal Rejuvenation

Possibly, the most exciting addition to our office is ThermiVa® for treatment for the intimate female zone. This is used for vaginal rejuvenation and can help address changes in vaginal health often caused after childbirth (vaginal laxity) and natural aging. It may help with modest stress incontinence. Treatments use radiofrequency to gently deliver heat to the external labia and inner vagina. This helps reduce and tighten the tissue by rejuvenating the collagen. There is no downtime and is typically done as a series of 3.

RealSelf Review, May 2017

“Dr. Burgess and her staff are absolutely amazing!! Very professional and personable. I had lipo done on my mons pubis. It healed incredibly well. Now I’m doing ThermiVa. WOW is the least I can say. Didn’t know what to expect & was nervous at first, but I honestly can’t believe how easy it is. ZERO pain or discomfort!! Just imagine a warm massage. Super quick, no downtime.”

ThermiSmooth® (face) and ThermiEyes®

Non-invasive, ThermiSmooth® is performed using a specially designed temperature controlled hand piece. The hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating, which creates collagen stimulation. This provides a smoothing and lifting effect slowly over months. ThermiEyes® is used to treat areas around the eye that need a lift or that has crepey skin. It can also treat the forehead, cheeks, neck and lines around the mouth. There is no downtime for these treatments and can typically be done as a series of 3-6 treatments
