ThermiSmooth® Face is performed by using radiofrequency energy and a temperature-controlled hand piece. By using small, circular motions, your provider will gently roll the hand piece on the surface of your skin, while heating targeted tissues below your skin. Patients often say it feels like a warm massage.
Why should you choose ThermiSmooth Face:
- No downtime
- No surgery
- For all skin types and tones
How does ThermiSmooth™ work?
The collagen under the skin will shrink when sustained heat is applied to it above 40ºC. This initiates a process where the skin begins to tighten and the effects of aging are reduced. The ThermiSmooth™ hand piece delivers this heat in a controlled manner to maximize patient comfort. ThermiSmooth™ is a hand piece used with the Thermi RF system.
How does ThermiSmooth™ differ from other non-invasive fat treatments?
While many non-invasive fat removal treatments currently exist, ThermiSmooth™ with the Thermi RF™ system is the only one whose temperature can be adjusted to effectively treat each patient’s specific area(s) of concern. The patient’s comfort and safety is greatly enhanced by the superior temperature control system.
What areas can be treated with ThermiSmooth™
ThermiSmooth™ can treat many different areas of the face and is well suited for under the eyes, around the mouth, the forehead, eyelids, and neck.
Who is a good candidate for ThermiSmooth™
To find out if ThermiSmooth™ is right for you, a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will be necessary.
How many Thermi RF treatments will I need?
Treatments with ThermiSmooth™ are repeated multiple times and the exact number of treatments varies depending on the desired cosmetic result of the patient. During your consultation we will determine the amount of ThermiSmooth™ treatments you will need.
What will happen during my ThermiSmooth™ consultation?
During your ThermiSmooth™ consultation, our plastic surgeon will examine your area(s) of concern and answer any questions you may have. Your medical history will be reviewed, as certain conditions may exclude one’s candidacy.
What happens during a ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
A small amount of gel is first applied to the area of skin’s surface in the treatment area. A specific target temperature is set and the hand piece is moved across the treatment area gently in a sweeping or circular pattern. The system will automatically adjust the temperature of the device based on feedback from the patient’s skin. A small area is treated for about 5 minutes and the number of treatments will be determined by you and your doctor.
How soon will I see results after a ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
While multiple treatments may be necessary, most patients will see some result after the first treatment with full results developing over 3 to 6 months.
