Clinical studies show that the collagen in skin will shrink when heated to sustained temperatures in excess of 40°C. Further, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen over a period of time. Your ThermiSmooth™ treatment delivers precise amounts of heat without the risk of overheating the tissues or discomfort. Learn More
How does ThermiSmooth™ work?
Sustained heat is applied to your skin using the ThermiSmooth™ handpiece and Thermi RF system. This controlled heating of the skin initiates a process where the skin begins to tighten and the signs of aging are reduced.
What areas of the body can be treated with the ThermiSmooth™?
ThermiSmooth™ treatments can be safely used on your forehead, periorbital area (eyes), cheeks, chin and jowls; around the mouth, and neck.
What skin conditions can be corrected with ThermiSmooth™?
Your ThermiSmooth™ can be used to treat drooping eyelids; small wrinkles below the eyes; shallow lines on the upper lip and around the mouth; and smile lines (crescent-shaped lines at the corners of your mouth). ThermiSmooth™ is an excellent wrinkle reduction treatment, however if you have very deep wrinkles or loose, sagging skin Dr. Warren may recommend the ThermiTight treatment.
Are ThermiSmooth™ treatments painful?
ThermiSmooth™ treatments are very gentle. No anesthetic is needed and many patients say it feels like a very deep, heated massage.
How long does it take to heal?
There is no downtime. Directly following treatment there will be a mild redness that will subside in a few minutes to an hour for the majority of patients.
What can I expect after my ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
Our patients generally notice improvement with the first or second treatment for superficial wrinkles. When treating loose skin, it may take five or six treatments at two-week intervals. This is because the production of new collagen is a very slow process. Your body will continue to produce new collagen and you will see continual improvement for 2-to-3 months following your last treatment.
Can the ThermiSmooth™ be used on any skin type?
ThermiSmooth™ is safe and effective on all skin types.
