Remember when “having work done,” meant major surgery and serious recovery time? Well, cosmetic procedures have come a long way since then. These days, you can get great results with minimally invasive procedures that require little to no downtime. And not only that, but when you look in the mirror afterward, you still recognize yourself because rather than change the way you look, these procedures enhance the way you look.
At Viva Wellness, Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth are two of our most popular procedures for patients who want gorgeous, natural-looking results without surgery or serious downtime. Both address signs of aging, but in slightly different ways.
Ultherapy is a non-invasive procedure that uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the brow.
How Ultherapy works
During your Ultherapy treatment, Dr. Tachuk will apply ultrasound gel to your skin and then use the ultrasound wand over your face to deliver targeted energy into the deep structural tissue where collagen lives. This stimulates new collagen growth, which will restore skin elasticity skin over time.
The procedure takes 30 to 90 minutes, determined by the treatment plan prepared by Dr. Tachuk. Most patients require only a single session to achieve lasting results. Results will build gradually over 2 to 3 months, and will continue to improve over 6 months or so.
ThermiSmoth is a non-invasive anti-aging treatment that uses radiofrequency to diminish fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, and neck. ThermiSmooth technology heats the skin’s surface, reducing signs of aging for a more youthful look.
How ThermiSmooth works
Our doctors will begin your ThermiSmooth treatment by applying a gel to your skin. They will then gently glide a specially designed hand-piece in circular motions over the target area, delivering precise heating to the surface of your skin. This heat will cause your skin to tighten, reducing the signs of aging. No anesthetic is needed, and no downtime is required!
Ideally, patients receive 3 or 4 ThermiSmooth treatments spaced about 3 weeks apart. Each procedure will take about 15-30 minutes. You will notice a difference right away, and the results will continue to improve over the next few months.
The main difference between Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth
Ultherapy and ThermiSmooth are similar in that they are both non-invasive procedures that provide great anti-aging results. The main difference between the two is in the depth of treatment and the specific benefits each provides.
Ultherapy treats deep tissue and lifts and tightens the skin.
Best candidates for Ultherapy
Although patients in their 50s and 60s get good results from Ultherapy, the age group that benefits the most are patients in their 30s and 40s, who are just beginning to see the effects of gravity on their skin.
ThermiSmooth treats the surface and smoothens and tightens the skin.
Best candidates for ThermiSmooth
ThermiSmooth is a wonderful option for anyone looking to diminish fine lines and wrinkles.
