ThermiSmooth® – Non-invasive treatment for skin laxity, wrinkle improvement and smoothing
How does it work?
ThermiSmooth® is performed using a specially designed temperature controlled hand piece. The hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using radiofrequency technology to stimulate production of collagen and elastic fibers, which may give the appearance of smoothing or wrinkle reduction.
What can I expect the day of treatment?
ThermiSmooth is a gentle therapy that is non-invasive, and has no downtime. It requires a
series of 3-6 applications, scheduled 1-3 weeks apart for the best results.
- Remove all jewelry and makeup, including lotions, from the treatment area prior to treatment.
- With your consent, a series of before photos will be taken upon arrival.
- The area(s) will be cleansed and prepped with alcohol.
- A small electrode will be placed on the treated area to heat the collagen gently and improve
- Beard stubble should be thoroughly removed prior to treatment.
What can I expect during treatment?
Slight discomfort may be experienced while undergoing treatment. Typically the discomfort is mild and temporary during the procedure and localized within the treatment area. During the treatment you should feel warmth and heat and provide ongoing feedback to the healthcare provider performing the treatment. Treatment time is approximately 30 minutes.
What can I expect after treatment?
You may experience warmth and a mild pink to red appearance of the skin that usually dissipates in about 30 minutes post treatment. Mild swelling and bruising may occur, which typically goes away within 2 to 24 hours. Diligent protection from sun exposure and application of sunscreen after treatment will minimize pigmentation changes. Post-treatment care guidelines will be provided following treatment. Please schedule your follow-up appointment or further treatments with the office.
