ThermiSmooth face is a non-invasive treatment for skin laxity, wrinkle reduction and smoothing for different areas of the face and neck. This treatment uses temperature controlled radio frequency that heats the dermis to promote immediate contraction, elasticity, and long term production of new collagen. Therefore it is used for treating fine lines, skin laxity and smoothing of the skin. Areas that can be treated are the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth and neck.
RF (Radio Frequency) is a type of electrical energy that can be specifically controlled and thereby be delivered very accurately. RF energy has been studied and used in medicine extensively. With ThermiSmooth, the provider uses a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece to target and treat the desired areas precisely and safely.
During the treatment you should feel warmth and heat. There could be some temporary localized slight discomfort but make sure to provide ongoing feedback to the Aesthetician performing the treatment so they can make adjustments.
Jewelry, make-up, including lotions, eyeliner and eye shadow should be removed from the treatment area prior to treatment. We also recommend that the patient hydrate well prior to the procedure.
Patients who are currently pregnant/nursing, have cardiac devices such as a pacemaker or defibrillator, mechanical valves, electrical device or cochlear implants should not have the treatment. The treatment is also not done over an active skin condition.
The treatment time will vary depending on how many areas you have treated. For full face & neck, the treatment takes approximately one hour.
No. It is recommended that patients continue an ongoing maintenance of their ThermiSmooth treatments. Timing is patient dependent and desired results. Clinical research has shown the effects may last 9-12 months, but results vary.
We recommend 3-6 treatments per area. Treatments should be spaced two weeks apart.
The skin will likely appear pink in the treated area and you may have some mild redness. This typically subsides within 2-24 hours. You may resume normal activity immediately.
