Unfortunately, as we age, the skin on our face and neck loosen up and start to sag. This can worsen the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and make you appear older or worn out. ThermiSmooth is a safe, non-invasive approach to skin tightening. It uses a specialized handpiece that delivers targeted radiofrequency (RF) energy to the treatment area, heating the skin’s surface. This both tightens the existing collagen and stimulates more to grow, leaving your skin looking firm and rejuvenated.*
Treatments generally take between 30 minutes to an hour. Patients usually report little to no discomfort, sometimes comparing it to a warming massage. There is no downtime, and results are often visible shortly after your first treatment, though the full results may take 3 to 6 months to appear. Several follow up treatments may be required to achieve the best results.* ThermiSmooth is a great choice for anyone looking to refresh their look and tighten loose skin, offering great results without the discomfort of other skin tightening procedures.* Contact us today to schedule your consultation to get started on your ThermiSmooth treatment!
What Areas Can ThermiSmooth Treat?*
ThermiSmooth is a very versatile procedure that can be used all over the face. It is especially well suited for treating the forehead, under the eyes, around the mouth, the cheeks and the neck.*
What Can I Expect During and After A ThermiSmooth Treatment?
First, a gel is applied to the area to be treated. The doctor will then glide the specialized ThermiRF handpiece, which automatically adjusts the temperature of the handpiece, in a circular movement. This heats the skin up, causing the existing collagen to shrink and tighten up and stimulating the growth of new collagen. Treatments generally take between 30 minutes to an hour, and most patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure, and some even find the procedure relaxing, like a massage.
Immediately after treatment, you may appear a little red or swollen, but these should go away on their own shortly. You will need to apply sunscreen before going outside for several weeks after treatment to prevent sun damage to your skin. Results are often visible right after treatment, with continuous improvements over the next 3 to 6 months as your body continues to produce new collagen, though your doctor may suggest several follow up treatments to make sure you receive the best possible results.*
What Do Results Look Like?*
Although individual results will vary, you can expect results like the ones above. As you can see, her skin has been lifted and tightened, and the appearance of her lines and wrinkles have been diminished. Come in for a consultation with our staff to discuss what results you can expect from your ThermiSmooth treatment.
Is ThermiSmooth Safe?
Extremely! ThermiSmooth’s ThermiRF system is a unique, state-of-the-art safety mechanism. While other skin tightening menthods like ThermiSmooth require the doctor to manually adjust the temperature of the device, the ThermiRF’s handpiece has a special sensor at the tip of the device that controls and adjusts the heat of the whole device by detecting the temperature on the skin. This makes ThermiSmooth a very safe and comfortable procedure.*
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Although this will vary from person to person, patients generally require between 3 to 6 treatments to achieve the best results. In addition, your doctor may suggest touch-up treatments about once a year to maintain your improved appearance. We can discuss your own personal needs when you come in for a consultation.
