Give Your Face a Younger Look with ThermiSmooth
As men and women age, certain areas of the body become more prone to losing elasticity. Fortunately, there is ThermiSmooth, a non-invasive procedure used on sagging skin to help you achieve a more youthful appearance. ThermiSmooth tightens the skin through the application of heat. Using a handheld instrument, a physician or nurse focuses the heat on the surface areas of the skin that you want to tighten. When heat is applied to the skin in such a controlled way, the collagen underneath it begins to shrink. This causes the skin to contract and effectively halts the appearance of wrinkles and sagging.
The ThermiSmooth Difference
ThermiSmooth can be used in areas surrounding the:
- Cheeks and mouth
The ThermiSmooth technology uses radiofrequency (RF) energy. Our skin reacts well to high temperatures of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and despite this high level of heat, patients don’t feel any discomfort during the procedure. It’s a straightforward, non-invasive treatment to return your facial skin to a more youthful look. If you are frustrated with the signs of aging in your face, call us for a consultation to learn more about how ThermiSmooth can turn back time while you sit back, relax, and enjoy your treatment without discomfort or worry.
How ThermiSmooth Works
If you’ve ever had an ultrasound, then you will be familiar with the concept of a handheld device moving gradually across your skin with the assistance of a lubricating gel. ThermiSmooth works in a similar way. When you come in for your procedure, the nurse will apply a bit of gel onto the treatment area for lubrication. Next, the handheld device will be set to a specific temperature as determined by your treatment specialist. As the technician slides the device across the skin, the Thermi system adjusts the heat as needed based on biofeedback from your skin. It only takes about five minutes per small treatment area, but how many treatments you need depends on your specific situation.
ThermiSmooth Benefits include:
- Minimum discomfort, no downtime
- Quick, convenient treatments that are customized to your needs
- A cost-effective and more effective solution than topical creams
- Long-lasting, natural-looking results
Is ThermiSmooth Right for Me?
ThermiSmooth can treat a wide number of skin conditions, but it isn’t right for everyone. Patients with certain conditions, such as pregnancy or skin infections at the treatment site, may not be good candidates for the procedure. Having a fever will also affect your ability to receive ThermiSmooth. Before seeking skin enhancement procedures, talk to your doctor about certain medical risks that may affect the outcome. The best way to determine if and how this treatment can improve the appearance of your skin is to schedule an appointment with our medical consultant, where we assess your current situation, discuss your options in detail, and design a plan that addresses your concerns.
During your consultation we will be able to determine the number of treatments you can expect. Each session includes several treatments, but the exact number depends on your overall goals. While many patients see immediate results after their first treatment, the full effects may take three to six months to take hold.
