What is ThermiSmooth™?
Non-invasive Skin Smoothing
Precise, Gentle, Epidermal Heating
ThermiSmooth™ is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated hand piece, which is supplied with the ThermiRF™ system. ThermiSmooth delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.
How ThermiSmooth™ Works
The ThermiSmooth™ hand piece is applied to the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF™ system is set to a specific target temperature. The collagen under the skin will shrink when sustained heat is applied to it above 40ºC. This initiates a process where the skin begins to tighten and the effects of aging are reduced. The ThermiSmooth™ hand piece delivers this heat in a controlled manner to maximize patient comfort. The hand piece is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin surface. As the skin’s temperature rises to the targeted temperature, the ThermiRF computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
What areas can be treated with ThermiSmooth™?
ThermiSmooth™ can treat many different areas of the face and is well suited for under the eyes, around the mouth, the forehead, eyelids, and neck.
Who is a good candidate for ThermiSmooth™?
Depending on your concerns, ThermiSmooth or ThermiLift (ThermiTight) may benefit. In general, patients looking for skin tightening around the eyes a mouth area will benefit.To find out if ThermiSmooth™ is right for you, a consultation with our aesthetician will be necessary.
How many Thermi RF treatments will I need?
Treatments with ThermiSmooth™ are repeated multiple times and the exact number of treatments varies depending on the desired cosmetic result of the patient. During your consultation, we will determine the amount of ThermiSmooth™ treatments you will need.
What happens during a ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
A small amount of gel is first applied to the area of skin’s surface in the treatment area. A specific target temperature is set and the hand piece is moved across the treatment area gently in a sweeping or circular pattern. The system will automatically adjust the temperature of the device based on feedback from the patient’s skin. A small zone is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
How soon will I see results after a ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
While multiple treatments may be necessary, most patients will see some result after the first treatment with full results developing over 3 to 6 months.
How does ThermiSmooth™ differ from other non-invasive fat treatments?
While many non-invasive fat removal treatments currently exist, ThermiSmooth™ with the Thermi RF™ system is the only one whose temperature can be adjusted to effectively treat each patient’s specific area(s) of concern. The patient’s comfort and safety is greatly enhanced by the superior temperature control system.
