What is ThermiSmooth™?
ThermiSmooth™ is a non-invasive, gentle epidermal heating procedure which produces effective skin smoothing and tightening around the eyes and mouth. It is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated hand piece, which is supplied with the ThermiRF™ system. ThermiSmooth delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface, stimulating the production of new collagen. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.
How does ThermiSmooth™ Work?
After applying a small amount of coupling gel, the ThermiSmooth™ hand piece is applied to the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF™ system is set to a specific target temperature (i.e.., 42°C – 45°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 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.
