ThermiSmooth® Face uses radiofrequency energy to produce precise heating to targeted areas of the face such as under the eyes, around the mouth, the forehead, eyelids, and neck.
The ThermiSmooth Face hand piece is gently moved across the surface in a circular motion over the targeted areas. Patients often say it feels like a warm massage. This non-surgical procedure does not require any anesthesia.
First, a small amount of gel is applied to the surface of the skin in the treatment area. A specific treatment temperature is set and the hand piece then sweeps the area of the skin being treated. The system will automatically adjust the temperature of the device based on feedback from the patient’s skin. Small treatment areas are usually treated in as little as 5 minutes.
The treatment is typically repeated several times to achieve the desired results. Patients may begin to see results within weeks after the first treatment, but maximal results develop over 3 to 6 months. There is ordinarily no downtime associated with this treatment, allowing patients to be treated without taking too much time out of their busy schedules.
