ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure. The treatment is administered with a specially designed device that applies precise heating to the skin’s surface to safely and gently improve fine lines and skin laxity, smoothing out the look of the skin. Many patients report that the application of the treatment is so pain-free that it actually feels like receiving a warm massage. During the skin tightening procedure, your skin’s temperature is monitored using state-of-the-art infrared cameras with realtime feedback. This guarantees that optimum temperatures are reached and maintained throughout your treatment, ensuring an effective and efficient result.
How does ThermiSmooth™ work?
Thanks to ThermiSmooth’s special thermistor applicator, when the skin is heated to very carefully regulated temperatures, several beneficial effects are achieved. Collagen experiences an immediate contraction, helping to tighten skin, while simultaneously remodelling itself and increasing elasticity. ThermiSmooth also stimulates long term production of new collagen. Studies show that when skin is heated to the right level for a sustained period of time, it engages a natural inflammatory process that can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Consequently, immediate results following treatment will continue to improve over the months that follow.
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. Some patients may experience mild discomfort when heat is applied to treatment areas, and because the procedure generally takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete, the period of discomfort is minimal. No anesthesia is required during this procedure and there is no post-treatment pain.
What areas can be treated with ThermiSmooth™?
ThermiSmooth is particularly effective at smoothing fine lines and tightening skin around the eye (including crow’s feet, eyelid laxity, and drooping brow area) and the mouth (including fine lines on the upper lips and laxity around the “cupid’s bow”). It’s also a highly effective treatment option to smooth acne scarring on any area of the face.
How soon will I see results after a ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
Patients typically see immediate improvement after only one skin tightening treatment. Multiple treatments ensure optimal skin-smoothing results. Many patients report that two to three sessions over a period of a six to eight weeks achieve the tighter and smoother look they desire. To maintain excellent initial results as the natural aging process continues, maintenance treatments are generally recommended as follow-up. Discussing this option with our expert staff members will allow you to create a customized treatment plan that will achieve the best results tailored to your needs.
