It is not uncommon to experience sagging and winkled skin as you age. However, these problem areas can be treated with a non-invasive and safe treatment called ThermiSmooth.
ThermiSmooth is a nonsurgical treatment used to tighten skin and encourage natural collagen production.
ThermiSmooth works by heating the skin with temperature-controlled radio frequency to stimulate new collagen for immediate and lasting results.
How Does ThermiSmooth Treatment Work?
The radio frequency heats the skin at around 104 degrees, causing collagen to shrink and naturally tighten the skin. Meanwhile, the skin’s natural inflammatory reaction to the heated temperature is to promote the production of new collagen. This new collagen fills in wrinkled areas leaving supple and smooth skin in its place, and causes sagging areas to tighten.
The ThermiSmooth procedure is quick and easy. The doctor starts by applying gel on the problem area. The treatment is done with a wand that administers the radio frequency. Once the wand reaches the proper temperature, it heats the skin it is applied to. The wand consistently monitors the temperature on the skin and adjusts itself accordingly for a comfortable experience.
Areas on the face such as the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth and neck can be treated. Larger areas on the body can be treated as well, such as chest, arms, stomach, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves, and ankles. Check with your physician to find out what areas they are equipped to treat.
Safe and Comfortable
ThermiSmooth is safe and comfortable. There are no needles or fillers needed. Radio frequency technology has been used in medicine considerably with other treatments related to the heart and back. The temperature of the wand and treatment procedure has been compared to receiving a warm massage.
The Price Tag
On average, each treatment ranges from a few hundred dollars to several thousand depending on the treatment area or areas and how long it takes. Most Spas run their own Specials and offer packages so make sure to ask.
How Long is the Procedure?
The timing of the procedure depends on the area being treated, however, majority of procedures last around 30 minutes. Typically, several treatments are needed to reach desired results. Your doctor can create a treatment schedule during your consultation. Patients should repeat treatments every 1-2 weeks for a minimum of 4 treatments. Usually, results start to show after three treatments and it can take up to three to six months to reach optimal results. Once desired results are reached, you’ll need follow up treatments every 9-12 months.
Before the Treatment
All makeup and jewelry will need to be removed from the treated area. Hydrate often and at least two days before, the day of, and for the next few days after for the best results.
After the Treatment
Since it is a non-invasive treatment, there is no downtime. Typically, normal activities can be returned to after treatment. It is best to avoid showers, pools, hot tubs, exposure to the sun, workouts, or perspiration. Makeup can be applied to treated areas, however mineral-based products are encouraged.
