ThermiSmooth Face Skin Resurfacing FAQs
ThermiSmooth Face Skin Resurfacing is an innovative procedure designed to improve skin tone and texture, reduce signs of aging and wrinkles, and provide silky smooth skin.
In this article the skin care experts at Advanced Laser Skin Care & Spa in the Warren, MI area answer patients’ most frequently asked questions about revolutionary new ThermiSmooth Face Skin Resurfacing treatments.
How Does ThermiSmooth Face Skin Resurfacing Work?
ThermiSmooth is a radio frequency skin resurfacing treatment that is uses heat energy to increase the elasticity of skin. ThermiSmooth effectively wakes up collagen proteins, promoting cellular renewal and skin contraction by increasing the long-term production of collagen.
Collagen is a protein found in the skin and other connective tissues in the human body, and functions to provide the skin with firmness, “plumpness” and elasticity. The use of controlled radio frequencies has a positive effect on collagen stimulation and leads to regeneration through a non-invasive wand that is rubbed over the surface of the area, where results are desired.
Radio frequency (RF) is a form of electrical energy that can be manipulated with high precision. ThermiSmooth euses this technology with a hand piece designed specifically for treating the target areas of the face with safety and accuracy.
What Areas Does ThermiSmooth Face Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Areas such as the forehead, neck, mouth, cheek and eyes are the areas that may be treated with ThermiSmooth to increase skin laxity, smooth the skin and reduce fine lines, imperfections and even scars.
Does ThermiSmooth Face Skin Resurfacing Hurt?
Patients will feel warmth during the skin resurfacing treatment, but it does not hurt. if there is any temporary mild discomfort at the target area, patients can communicate with the professional performing the treatment and adjustments to the heat level can be made as needed.
