ThermiSmooth Facial Rejuvenation
What is ThermiSmooth®?
ThermiSmooth® is a facial rejuvenation treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten, tone, and improve the overall quality of the skin. This non-surgical treatment uses controlled heat to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin and stimulates the body’s natural healing response and the production of collagen and elastin. The production of new collagen and elastin thickens the dermis, which smoothes wrinkles and reduces the appearance of fine lines and improves the overall quality of the skin.
ThermiSmooth® can treat:
The Thermismooth Procedure
Thermismooth procedures are performed in the safety and comfort of our San Diego clinic by our highly skilled technicians. Patients begin treatment in a reclining position. A cool gel is placed on the target treatment areas, and then a small, temperature-controlled handpiece is gently rolled across the skin. As the radiofrequency waves transmit heat energy deep within the tissues to stimulate collagen production, most patients experience a warming sensation similar to that of a hot-stone massage. Our technicians make patient comfort a priority and check in continuously to ensure that each session is as relaxing as possible.
How long will the Thermismooth skin tightening procedure take?
The length of time it takes to complete the Thermismooth procedure depends on the areas being treated. For example, Thermismooth body treatments may take longer than Thermismooth eyes and facial treatments because of the larger surface area. On average, most treatments take about 30 minutes to complete, and tightening of the skin is usually visible right away. Results will continue to improve for three to six months after treatment. Many patients choose to undergo multiple treatments to achieve optimal results.
Are there risks to having a Thermismooth procedure?
As a non-invasive treatment, Thermismooth carries far fewer risks than invasive surgeries and procedures that produce similar results. However, as with any cosmetic treatment, there are minor risks involved. Thermismooth side effects are minimal, and may include mild swelling and redness. Patients are able to resume their normal, day-to-day activities immediately after the procedure. Most side effects resolve within 24 hours.
How long do the effects of Thermismooth last?
Results are visible immediately after each session and will continue to improve for three to six months. Full results can last up to a year and regular maintenance treatments can help extend them even longer. At Viva Wellness, we provide each patient with a recommended maintenance schedule designed to suit their individual lifestyle and aesthetic goals.
To retain the effects of Thermismooth between treatments, good skincare is essential. We advise each patient on the best skincare regimen for their skin, always emphasizing the importance of using a high-quality sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect against sun damage and keep skin looking healthy and smooth. Drinking plenty of water also helps to keep tissue well hydrated.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required to achieve optimal results can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of aging and desired results of treatment. We typically recommend four treatments spaced about a month apart for the best results. Multiple treatments may be required in order to achieve your desired results.
When will I see results?
Most patients start to see results of ThermiSmooth® after one or two treatment sessions. Full results are typically visible within three to six months after the treatment. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve your desired results. Results may vary from patient to patient.
Am I a good candidate for Thermismooth?
If you’ve been considering cosmetic treatment for eye wrinkles, drooping eyelids, loose skin or wrinkles around the mouth, or if you have unwanted cellulite and sagging skin on your body, then Thermismooth may be a great choice for you.
Thermismooth significantly minimizes fine lines and wrinkles on the face, beautifies body contours by tightening and lifting problem areas, and smoothes out stubborn cellulite to boost your confidence no matter what you’re wearing—or not wearing.
Thermismooth is a non-invasive procedure with no surgery and no injections, so there’s no downtime and minimal risk. However, if you’re pregnant, have recently undergone facial or dental surgery, or have an implantable device such as a pacemaker, then you may not be a good candidate for Thermismooth.
