After applying a small amount of coupling gel, the ThermiSmooth Face handpiece is applied to the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF™ system is set to a specific target temperature (i.e.., 38°C – 42°C). The hand-piece is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin surface. As the skin’s temperature rises to the targeted temperature, the ThermiRF computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure the precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
Do people ask you if you had enough sleep last night? Do your under-eye bags make you feel aged, tired, and worn? Until recently, the only way to fix this area was with a surgical procedure called a blepharoplasty, where skin and fat are removed from under the eye.
Now our new non-surgical procedure called ThermiSmooth delivers a safe, effective “under-eye bags” treatment without the downtime and risks of surgery.
At Advanced Regeneration, our ThermiSmooth treatments cover under the eyes and around the lips. We have other treatments that take care of other areas of the body.
Ideally, we recommend 3-6 treatments per area with 7 days between each treatment. ThermiSmooth treatments are repeated several times until the desired result has been achieved. Because every patient is unique, it’s impossible to say exactly how many treatments each patient will need. During the procedure, our certified technician will use her expert judgment and guidance to help patients gain the results they want.
During a ThermiSmooth treatment, ultrasound gel is applied to the targeted treatment area. Once set to a specific temperature, the hand-piece is moved in a circular fashion over the skin’s surface, gently heating the skin and adjusting the temperature based on the skin’s feedback. During the treatment, you should feel warmth and heat. There could be some temporary localized slight discomfort but make sure to provide ongoing feedback to the individual performing the treatment so he/she can make adjustments. Patients can expect to see results after the first treatment, but complete results show after the coarse of treatments.
The treatment time will vary depending on how many areas you have treated. Each area is treated for approximately 15 minutes.
You can return to work the same day. You may have some redness.
