What is ThermiSmooth®?
ThermiSmooth® is an innovative new treatment that uses the gentle power of radiofrequency energy to stimulate healing and renewal in the skin. This treatment can help patients fight back against the signs of aging in nearly any area of the face. The most common treatment areas include the:
Best of all, this treatment features absolutely no downtime, so patients can undergo a session in the comfort of our office and return to their daily routines as soon as it’s over.
How Does it Work?
By utilizing gradual radiofrequency heating, ThermiSmooth® can tighten, tone, and improve the overall condition of the skin. As radiofrequency energy is aimed at the face, it passes easily through the uppermost layer of the skin and is absorbed by its deeper structures. As these structures absorb the energy as heat, they’re damaged in a controlled manner. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, causing blood to flow to the treatment area and jumpstarting the creation of additional structural proteins like elastin and collagen. As the overall structure of the skin is strengthened and reinforced, it becomes visibly smoother, tighter, and healthier-looking.
This treatment is such a safe way to refresh the skin because it utilizes two separate methods of temperature control. The ThermiSmooth® device itself has a small gauge that measures the temperature of specific areas of the skin, while an infrared camera positioned above the treatment area monitors the overall temperature of the entire face.
What can I Expect from a ThermiSmooth® Treatment?
Each ThermiSmooth® treatment session typically takes no longer than 30 minutes to complete. While most patients experience some degree of redness after treatment, this usually subsides within a few hours. Following treatment, it’s important that patients remember to apply sunscreen, but this is the only real post treatment precaution that needs to be taken. Between 3-6 sessions are usually needed for patients to see beautiful, visible changes.
Before beginning a ThermiSmooth® treatment plan, patients must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Russo. During this appointment, Dr. Russo will evaluate your aesthetic goals and current state of health in order to decide if ThermiSmooth® is right for you.
