If you have noticed lines and wrinkles on your face recently, you might be thinking about investing in some kind of cosmetic solution to improve your appearance. With all of the non-invasive procedures available, you might not want to opt in for invasive cosmetic surgery. Today, non-invasive cosmetic procedures can clear your skin, smooth out wrinkles and lift up sagging skin without the need for surgery or a lot of down time. ThermiSmooth® is a new procedure that can rejuvenate your skin and greatly improve your appearance in very little time.
Heat Improves Your Skin
There are many procedures that use different forms of heat to improve the appearance of skin. Various forms of light energy lasers might be used, but the ThermiSmooth® procedure utilizes radiofrequency energy. When carefully regulated heat is applied to skin tissue, it has the effect of triggering a rejuvenation process. In order to understand how the ThermiSmooth® procedure improves skin, you need to know a little bit about collagen.
Collagen is the body’s most plentiful protein, and it’s found practically everywhere in the body. Widely known as an essential protein, collagen plays a fundamental part in the building and maintaining of connective tissue that is found in the muscles, tendons, ligaments and the skin. It’s collagen that supports the structure of skin, keeping it looking youthful and vibrant while feeling smooth and soft. The problem is that the levels of collagen available for the skin to absorb begins decreasing as we get older.
The older we get, the less collagen is produced, and this is what causes the skin to begin to collapse. All of a sudden, you begin noticing fine lines and slightly sagging skin that only gets worse over time if nothing is done about it. When the skin is heated with the ThermiSmooth® device, the body recognizes this as a minor skin injury and the immune system kicks in. It forces the body to produce more collagen, elastin and other enzymes that have a healing effect. The skin absorbs these healing elements carried by the blood, and the result is younger-looking, smooth skin.
How ThermiSmooth® Works
A cooling gel is applied to our clients’ face and neck areas before the procedure is performed. With circular motions, our specialists heat the skin in areas the show the most signs of aging. As the radiofrequency energy penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, it can feel a bit like a warm massage.
Optimum results can last for up to a year for many of our clients. In order to maintain your smoother skin, it might be necessary to receive another treatment about nine months to a year after the initial treatment.
