What to Expect
First, a small amount of gel is applied to the skin’s surface in the area being treated. A specific target temperature is set and treatment is performed by moving a small hand-piece in a circular motion over the area. The system will automatically adjust the temperature of the device based on feedback from the patient’s skin. A small area is treated for about 5 minutes, the number of treatments will be determined by you and your practitioner. Treatments are typically repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
In almost all cases, patients who undergo the ThermiSmooth procedure need no recovery time. So you can simply get back to your day! Some patients do experience minor swelling and redness which goes away quickly.
Many patients can see results from ThermiSmooth after the first treatment, however in most cases multiple treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. The gradual production and strengthening of collagen in the skin means that results become more apparent as time goes on. Full results become apparent after 3-6 months.
Most people require 3 treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. The time between each treatment session is usually around 2-4 weeks.
Almost anyone who wants to safely deal with wrinkles and minor texture issues of the face can use ThermiSmooth. However, there are sometimes rare or unique factors that may mean ThermiSmooth may not be right for you. This will be discussed at your initial consultation.
