What is ThermiSmooth™?
When radio frequency is applied to the face, neck, or jawline, the body’s natural collagen production is initiated resulting in tighter, smoother skin. ThermiSmooth™ is a series of FDA-approved, non-invasive topical treatments that allow patients to enjoy younger, healthier looking skin around the face.
How Does ThermiSmooth™ Work?
ThermiSmooth™ uses unique temperature probes to precisely regulate heat, maximizing safety and effectiveness. A state-of-the-art, hand-held device heats the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production process. The high-tech device senses the temperature of the skin and automatically adjusts to deliver safe, effective results. The new collagen then naturally smooths and firms the skin on the face to produce desired results.
The ThermiSmooth™ Procedure
The first step of the ThermiSmooth™ procedure is to fully cleanse your skin before gel is applied to the treatment areas. The hand-held ThermiSmooth™ device is applied to the face and can deliver a comfortable warming sensation to the target area. The entire treatment lasts between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
First introduced in January 2016, ThermiSmooth™ 250 is a targeted radio frequency energy procedure that uses a regulated, handheld device to tighten the appearance of the skin. The precision heating device shrinks the cells beneath the surface, stimulating the growth of new collagen and improving the appearance of cellulite, excess pockets of fat, skin laxity, and wrinkles.
Treatment is non-invasive and is best described as soothing, akin to a hot stone massage. No pain or discomfort has been reported during treatment. Four treatments spread evenly over 12 weeks is generally recommended.
