How It Works

ThermiSmooth™ Face is effective in generating the production of fresh, new collagen—the foundational protein of the skin. As one ages, collagen production slows down, which can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Therefore, the production of new collagen aids in tightening the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance. During the in-office procedure, the Thermi RF™ system is set to a specific target temperature, depending on your aesthetic goals. After applying a small amount of gel, the ThermiSmooth™ Face handpiece is applied to the skin’s surface. The thermistor handpiece 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 Thermi RF computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure the precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about 5-15 minutes to achieve sustained heating of the target tissues.

Clinical studies show that the collagen in the skin will shrink when heated to a sustained temperature in excess of 104°F. Furthermore, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate skin cells to produce new collagen over a period of time.

Treatment Time

Patients should stop using Retin-A products one week prior to the appointment in order to reach the proper temperature and time for the treatment to be effective. Retin A may make the skin more sensitive to heat. For some patients, it may initially feel like the probe is too hot, but it is not. The skin will adapt to the warmth of the device. The temperature is not high enough to burn the skin.

Patients should not wear contacts if the orbital area is being treated. If possible, patients should come to the treatment without any makeup because it needs to be removed before photos can be taken. After the treatment, complimentary makeup and sunscreen will be applied.

The area to be treated must be free from sweat, lotions, oils, etc. Do not apply make-up, creams, or lotions to the treatment area. The skin should be free from hair. Do not wear jewelry in the treatment area. Men undergoing facial treatments must shave the morning of the session. Patients may continue all medications, supplements, and vitamins during the treatment period.

A grounding pad will be placed either on the buttocks, upper back, or thighs, so keep those areas clean too. Wear comfortable clothing on the day of the treatment so that the technician can gain access to the treatment area as well as the back/buttocks/thighs for the placement of the ground electrode.

Depending on the area being completed, ThermiSmooth™ Face generally takes 30 minutes and is repeated every two or three weeks. If more than one area needs to be corrected, the treatment time doubles.
