Radiofrequency energy has become a popular method for achieving a host of cosmetic goals today. The innovative ThermiSmooth takes RF treatments to the next level, with unprecedented temperature control that promises a safe and effective skin smoothing procedure. Now available at PCI Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Andrews has five good reasons to consider ThermiSmooth for your next aesthetic treatment.
Treats Many Areas
ThermiSmooth can be used to treat many areas, including:
- Eyelids and around the eyes
- Around the mouth
The procedure tends to work best on mild to moderate amounts of skin laxity. Extensive skin sagging may require a ThermiTight procedure or surgery to achieve the desired results.
ThermiSmooth is the first device to deliver precise levels of heating to the skin. This advancement ensures skin is heated just enough to stimulate collagen production and promote skin tightening without damaging the skin. The device is also adjustable, allowing us to treat various levels of skin laxity and different areas of the face with a single procedure.
Unlike other methods of skin smoothing and tightening, ThermiSmooth is a relatively painless treatment. In fact, some patients liken the process to a warm massage. The handheld device never penetrates the skin’s surface and heat is countered by automatic temperature regulation and cool compresses when necessary.
There is no downtime after a ThermiSmooth treatment, which means you can return to work and other activities as soon as the procedure is over. Skin may be slightly red after treatment, but that will likely be the only telltale sign you had something done. In fact, you can even apply makeup immediately following your ThermiSmooth treatment, so minor redness will be safely hidden from public view.
Because ThermiSmooth works with the body’s natural processes to tighten and smooth skin, results can be soon after the procedure and continue to improve in the weeks following treatment. Most patients will require 3-6 treatment sessions to achieve full results, depending on the amount of skin laxity and the specific areas being treated. Once full results are achieved, they will last for many months. A touch-up procedure is often needed to maintain results.
ThermiSmooth is the newest generation in skin tightening techniques, offering a smoother, more youthful appearance without discomfort or downtime. Now, ThermiSmooth is available right in your own Cedar Rapids neighborhood at PCI Plastic, Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery.
