ThermiSmooth® Body is performed by targeting the areas under the skin, providing a temporary reduction of cellulite from eyes to thighs. There are a series of treatments over 6-8 weeks that are gentle, and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.
ThermiSmooth uses radio-frequency energy to heat the skin and stimulating the patient's natural production of collagen. This is the only FDA approved device that has built in temperature control so we are able to precisely regulate the amount of energy required to tighten the skin but also not burn the skin. This improves both safety and effectiveness. In addition, a thermal imaging camera is also used to monitor the skin temperature to ensure safety and patient comfort.
How does ThermiSmooth™ work?
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. ThermiSmooth™ is a hand piece used with the Thermi RF system.
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.
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.
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, your dermatologist will determine the amount of ThermiSmooth™ treatments you will need.
What will happen during my ThermiSmooth™ consultation?
During your ThermiSmooth™ consultation, your dermatologist will examine your area(s) of concern and answer any questions you may have. Your medical history will be reviewed, as certain conditions may exclude one’s candidacy.
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 area is treated for about 5 minutes and the number of treatments will be determined by you and your dermatologist.
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.
