Am I an Ideal Candidate for ThermiSmooth®?

Whether it’s crow’s feet around the eyes, smile lines, or forehead wrinkles, this treatment offers exciting and promising results to patients like you. If you struggle with skin laxity, the treatment can effectively tighten loose skin in various areas of the face, neck, or body.
It’s important to note that this is a versatile treatment suitable for individuals of various skin types and tones. So, whether you’re just beginning to notice the early signs of aging or seeking a proactive approach to maintaining your youthful allure, this treatment welcomes you with open arms. Although it’s ideal for the majority of patients, the best way to determine your candidacy without question is to come in for a new-patient evaluation with our staff.
Who Is NOT a Candidate?
We prioritize your safety and well-being above all else, and while the treatment is a great option for countless individuals, there are a few specific cases where it may not be suitable. If you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advisable to postpone undergoing treatment until after this period. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the skin’s elasticity, making it difficult to accurately predict the treatment’s results.
Individuals with certain chronic medical conditions or those taking blood-thinning medications will need to meet with their healthcare provider before scheduling their appointment with us. While the treatment is revered for its versatility, it is not intended for individuals with open wounds, infections, or active skin conditions in the treatment area. Ensuring a healthy and optimal healing environment is crucial for achieving the desired results.
Introducing the ThermiSmooth® Treatment
What Is It?
This treatment is one of our most popular options for a non-invasive way to address a plethora of aesthetic and cosmetic concerns. It uses advanced technology and is able to target even the smallest problem areas for thorough enhancement of the skin’s smoothness, tightness, and overall appearance. Say goodbye to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin as the treatment paves the way for a refreshed and revitalized you.
We most commonly see patients for treatment of their eyelids, the skin around their lips, and the chin, neck, jawline, and forehead. Some patients get everything they need out of a singular treatment session while others prefer to include these treatments in their regular skincare and anti-aging routines. Other patients come to us before their problem areas have even begun to fully form, as the treatment is an excellent tool for preventative purposes as well.
How Does It Work?
Wielding the power of radiofrequency technology, the treatment gently delivers precise and controlled heat to the targeted areas of your skin. This heat stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, the essential building block protein responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
As collagen production is stimulated, your skin gradually becomes tighter, smoother, and more youthful in appearance. The heat energy also promotes the breakdown of fat cells, aiding in the reduction of unwanted bulges or contour irregularities. During each treatment session, our team uses specialized handpieces to deliver the radiofrequency energy in a comfortable and soothing manner.
For Your Face
The specially patented device used during ThermiSmooth® treatments is unique because it produces just enough radiofrequency power to stimulate the collagen beneath the skin’s surface without damaging any surrounding tissue or harming the outer layer of the dermis. The applicator is designed to be safely administered even to the patient’s most delicate areas, such as the skin around the lips and the upper and lower eyelids. The device also has complete control over the temperature down to the decimal point.
For a patient undergoing this treatment for their facial skin, the most common areas that typically need treatment include nasolabial folds, jowls, laugh lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, sagging upper eyelids, or under-eye bags. Treating these areas is an effective way to turn back the aging clock.
For Your Body
Although the application device is patented to be gentle enough for even fragile eyelid skin, the treatment really gets its chance to shine when tackling larger problem areas. The applicator is able to target even the deepest layers of the dermis for thorough collagen stimulation, but still won’t harm any nearby tissue thanks to included temperature regulation. Patients can opt for a body treatment if they’re looking to accentuate their overall figure rather than focusing on smaller, more concentrated areas.
Patients looking to make larger, all-encompassing improvements can choose to treat the skin over their thighs, hips, and abdomen. We see quite a few patients who consider this treatment after undergoing major weight loss through surgery or lifestyle changes. Did you know that this treatment can even improve your circulation?
Your ThermiSmooth® Appointment
How Should I Prepare?
It’s most important of all to schedule a consultation with our knowledgeable team, which you can do today! During your visit, we will assess your specific needs, answer any questions you may have, and develop a personalized treatment plan with you. Before your treatment session, it is advisable to keep your skin clean and free from any makeup or skincare products. This will allow the radiofrequency energy to penetrate the skin more effectively, enhancing the treatment’s effectiveness.
We also recommend wearing loose clothing to ensure ease of access to the targeted areas. It’s a good idea to avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning beds leading up to your appointment, as sunburned or tanned skin may be more sensitive during the treatment. Hydration is key, so remember to drink plenty of water before and after your session. Staying well-hydrated promotes healthy skin and aids in the body’s natural healing process.
How Long Will My Results Last?
While individual experiences may vary, many patients start noticing improvements shortly after their first session. Some fortunate individuals have reported visible changes in their skin as early as two weeks following their initial treatment. However, it’s essential to remember that this treatment produces progressive improvements. For some patients, it may take a few months to fully appreciate the transformation as collagen production continues to increase and optimize the skin’s appearance.
The number of treatment sessions required varies depending on your unique cosmetic goals and the condition of your skin. While some individuals achieve their desired results after a single session, others may benefit from a series of treatments to achieve optimal outcomes.
Can I Do Anything To Make My Results Last Even Longer?
It’s crucial to follow a consistent skincare routine tailored to your specific needs. Cleanse your skin gently, using products suitable for your skin type. Moisturize daily to keep your skin hydrated and nourished, enhancing its suppleness and vitality. Sun protection is paramount. Shield your skin from harmful UV rays by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher any time you’ll be outdoors for an extended period of time.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle also contributes to long-lasting results. Stay hydrated by drinking an adequate amount of water each day, as proper hydration supports your skin’s natural elasticity and radiance. Incorporate a balanced diet rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to nourish your skin from within. Avoid habits that may compromise the health and appearance of your skin, such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
