ThermiSmooth is our newest treatment using the ThermiLift suite of radio-frequecny devices. It is a non-invasive skin tightening procedure that can be used on the face, neck, and jaw lines of patients. The procedure works by stimulating the natural production of collagen beneath the skin. When skin is heated to temperatures above 40C, a process is initiated in which the skin begins to tighten and new collagen is produced.
As we age we produce less and less naturally occurring collage and without this volumizing substance, faces can begin to look old, with saggy skin and drooping contours.
After a simple and quick treatment, patients can enjoy a face that is supported, tight, and healthy looking!
ThermiSmooth is performed using a specially-designed hand piece supplied with the ThermiLift system. When applied to the skin, this hand piece begins delivering precise heating to the surface of the skin, which in turn causes the skin to tighten and reduces the effects of aging.
Thanks to the technologically used in this device, the ThermiSmooth hand piece automatically adjusts energy output to the targeted temperature, ensuring that patients are receiving the best and most effective treatment possible. During the procedure, patients experience a warm, comfortable sensation on the treatment areas.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Who is a candidate for ThermiSmooth?
A: Patients with fat loss on their neck, jaw, or neck are perfect candidates for a ThermiSmooth procedure. Additionally, ThermiSmooth has been shown to be effective on treatment areas elsewhere on the body, such as the eyelids, chest, and arms.
Q: How many ThermiSmooth treatments are required?
A: Generally, ThermiSmooth treatments are repeated several times until the desired result has been achieved. Because every patients is unique, it’s impossible to say exactly how many treatments each patient will need. During the procedure, Dr. Honrado will use his expert judgment and guidance to help patients gain the results they want.
Q: How soon will I see results?
A: Depending on how many ThermiSmooth treatment options are required, patients can expect to see full results within three to six months after the procedure.
Q: What can I expect during the procedure?
A: During a ThermiSmooth treatment, Dr. Honrado will apply gel to the targeted treatment area. Once set to a specific temperature, the hand piece is moved in a circular fashion over the skin’s surface, gently heating the skin and adjusting the temperature based on the skin’s feedback. After about five minutes, the procedure is done! Though full results won’t occur until months after the treatment has been performed, patients can expect to see some results after their first ThermiSmooth treatment.
