Collagen is the substance which gives our face volume, making us look young and healthy. As we get older, however, our body begins producing less collagen. Without this volumizing substance, faces can begin to look old, with saggy skin and drooping contours. Over the years, patients have turned to cosmetic dermatology to help restore their appearance of youth, and thanks to the advent of ThermiSmooth, patients now have access to a non-invasive procedure that tightens skin and restores beauty.
To learn more about ThermiSmooth, a revolutionary new cosmetic procedure, call Dr. Carlo Honrado at 310.286.0043 today!
What is ThermiSmooth?
ThermiSmooth 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. After a simple and quick treatment, patients can enjoy a face that is supported, tight, and healthy looking!
How Does ThermiSmooth Work?
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.
Who is a candidate for ThermiSmooth?
Almost anyone including 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. To find out if you’re a candidate for ThermiSmooth, please contact Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Honrado by calling 310.286.0043 today!
How many ThermiSmooth treatments are required?
Ideally, 4 treatments with 21 days between each treatment.
ThermiSmooth treatments are repeated several times until the desired result has been achieved. Because every patient 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.
How soon will I see results?
After 2 – 3 treatments but it all depends on how many ThermiSmooth treatment options are required, patients can expect to see full results within three to six months after the procedure.
What can I expect during the procedure?
During a ThermiSmooth treatment, Dr. Honrado will apply gel to the targeted treatment area. Once set to a specific temperature, the handpiece 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.
What needs to be done to prepare/is any preparation needed?
How much discomfort will I experience during and after? Will Dr. Honrado or his still give me any type of anesthetic?
Normally, this is not needed.
How quick is the recovery time? How much downtime is needed after?
Immediate. No downtime.
How soon will I be able to return to work? Will I need to go directly home afterwards to recover? Will people be able to see/tell I had something done?
You can return to work the same day. You may have some redness.
