Gauged for delicate skin, ThermiSmooth® (sometimes referred to as ThermiSmooth Face) is perfect for addressing laxity in the face, especially around the eyes and mouth. The radiofrequency treatment boosts collagen and leaves skin looking tighter, healthy, and youthful. “It’s fabulous,” says Dr. Patricia Wexler. “Everybody loves it. When you give heat greater than 40 degrees but less than 45 degrees, you are contracting the collagen. It’s like putting shrink-wrap—or Spanx—over the eye pads. The heat also stimulates fibrogenesis, the creation of new collagen. You can literally see the improvement over several months as the area gets tighter.”
The application of heat spurs collagen to rejuvenate in skin tissue, but is formulated to be gentle enough for the delicate tissue of the face, neck, and chest. You’ll feel the heat slowly building up. Many patients find it relaxing; like a hot stone massage.
What to Expect
Length of Procedure
The full length of the procedure usually lasts 20 to 40 minutes.
The reduction of fine lines, improvement in lift, and tighter skin begins after the first treatment. You will begin to notice results in 3 to 4 months. However, as with Thermi250™, the skin will continue to tighten over time, with full impact coming into focus between 3 to 6 months. Depending on your body, these results may last for up to a year. As the aging process continues, touch-ups can help the dynamic changes of sagging and laxity.
There is usually no downtime after a ThermiSmooth treatment. You can return to your plans immediately after your appointment.
Number of Treatments
We recommend 8 treatments, with patients coming in once a week (roughly 2 months in total) to achieve optimal results.
