ThermiSmooth® Face and ThermiSmooth® Body are both designed to address skin laxity on different areas on your body. ThermiSmooth® Face works best treating fine lines and wrinkles on areas such as your forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth, and neck whereas ThermiSmooth® Body is commonly used to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the body. It can be used on treatment areas such as the chest, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees and calves. Both ThermiSmooth® treatments are non-invasive and require no anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime!
There are many recontouring techniques available today, but many patients choose ThermiSmooth® because it requires no surgery or downtime and is completely comfortable. Skin laxity is a common sign of aging and can be present almost anywhere on the body including the face, neck, chest, buttocks, and thighs. With ThermiSmooth®, patients can achieve tightened skin with the regeneration of their own collagen.
ThermiSmooth® involves a temperature-controlled handpiece to deliver radiofrequency energy to the treatment area. Using a circular motion, the tissue is heated and the body’s collagen production is stimulated. As new collagen is produced, the skin begins to tighten resulting in a more toned appearance and a reduction and fine lines and wrinkles.
ThermiSmooth® Face can be used to improve skin laxity in the forehead, brows, cheeks, or neck area. It is performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece, which is applied to the skin’s surface. The controller is set to a specific target temperature. The hand piece is moved in a circular motion across the surface while it gently heats the skin targeting problem areas. Each zone is treated for approximately 5-7 minutes. A series of 3-6 treatments performed over a 6-8 week period is recommended. The treatment is gentle, comfortable, and safe with no known side-effects. The treatment is completely non-invasive requiring no anesthesia, no incisions, and absolutely no downtime.
ThermiSmooth® Body can be used on the chest, bra area, arms, abdomen, flanks, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, ankles and more. It is performed with a device that targets areas under the skin providing a temporary reduction of the appearance of cellulite. It is a non-invasive treatment requiring no anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime. A series of 4-6 treatments spanning over a 6-8 week period is recommended for optimal results. The treatment is gentle, comfortable, and safe. There are no known side-effects.
After treatment with ThermiSmooth®, there is no recovery or downtime so patients can get right back to their regular routine, including exercise. In rare instances, patients might experience some minor redness and swelling, however, this should diminish very quickly. In fact, many patients expereince little discomfort at all after treatment and compare it to a hot stone massage.
"I’m the biggest chicken ever when it comes to surgery so I checked out BioSpa for some noninvasive fat removal options. The ThermiSmooth felt like a hot rock massage, and I had no pain at all during or after!”
While some patients can begin to experience results after just one treatment, three treatment sessions are typically recommended for optimal skin tightening. The collagen renewal process is a gradual one, revealing your results over the next several months. Full results can be expected after about 3-6 months and can last for up to a year or longer. After that time, patients can choose to have a follow-up session to maintain their results.
BioSpa offers several solutions to help you tone and tighten your figure. If patients experience stubborn fat along with lax skin, they might benefit from another contouring treatment system like Vanquish or UltraShape Power. If skin laxity is or becomes more severe, patients might consider a more extensive treatment with surgical skin tightening techniques like a facelift, neck lift, or tummy tuck.
