The ThermiSmooth uses a unique hand piece to deliver targeted heating to the surface of the skin.
By transmitting radiofrequency energy as controlled heat into the dermis (the lower layer of the skin), ThermiSmooth causes the skin’s foundational collagen protein fibers to contract which triggers a natural inflammatory response that has shown to accelerate cell regeneration.
Collagen provides the skin with structure and elasticity, but its production slows with age, so skin becomes thinner, looser, and more crepey. Heat-based energy treatments target collagen fibers and the cells that produce them (called fibroblasts). Skin becomes tighter, smoother, and more supple.
After applying a gel that helps conduct heat safely, the handheld ThermiSmooth Face device is put onto the treatment area and done in a circular motion. Each area is then targeted for 5–15 minutes.
Radiofrequency energy is transmitted through the skin without breaking the surface. The device adjusts its temperature in response to your skin heating, maintaining a comfortable level of heat the whole time.
No anesthetic is needed. You can expect your treatment to feel like a warm massage, though you should let your provider know if it feels too hot so they can adjust the temperature to keep you comfortable.
