ThermiSmooth Austin is an innovative skin rejuvenation technique that utilises temperature controlled radio frequency (RF) technology to gently heat the skin’s surface in order to smooth out wrinkles and produce a more youthful appearance. It is a brilliant procedure for those with mild to moderate lines and wrinkles who want to enjoy smoother skin without the trauma of invasive surgery.
HOW DOES THERMIsmooth WORK?
ThermiSmooth Austin is able to heat the skin to just over 40°C without causing an pain or discomfort to the patient. Clinical studies have shown that skin shrinks when heated in excess of this temperature, meaning that sagging skin is tightened up as a result of ThermiSmooth treatments.
As well as this tightening effect, the application of sustained temperatures can cause inflammation of targeted tissues in order to stimulate the production of new collagen over time. Increased collagen production helps to keep tissues plump and healthy and thicken skin, meaning that skin remains stay smooth and free from wrinkles for even longer after a series of ThermiSmooth treatments.
WHICH AREAS CAN THERMIsmooth TREAT?
In Austin ThermiSmooth is designed to target small areas on the face where lines and wrinkles are common. We find that for many people who visit our medical spa in Austin, ThermiSmooth is a great way to treat crows feet around the eyes, fine lines around the lips, and moderate wrinkles across the forehead, though it can also give fantastic results when used on deeper lines on either side of the mouth, or on the upper eye and brow area to lift and brighten the eyes.
IS THE TREATMENT PAINFUL?
ThermiSmooth Austin is applied via a carefully designed thermistor regulated device, which means that very precise, sustained heat is applied to the skin and you will not experience fluctuating or painful temperatures. Temperatures will never exceed more than 45°C, which is very gentle; many of our patients who have undergone ThermiSmooth in Austin have likened the sensation to a warm massage.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE PROCEDURE?
The ThermiSmooth procedure begins with the application of a coupling gel to the treatment areas. The ThermiRF system is then set to a specific temperature and the hand piece is ready to be applied to the skin. Gentle sweeping or circular motions are used to gradually heat the skin’s surface, whilst the ThermiRF system automatically adjusts output; this ensures a precise and even temperature is maintained with no risk of overheating. It takes approximately five minutes for a small treatment area to have reached the optimum level of sustained heating.
HOW LONG BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Multiple treatments of ThermiSmooth in Austin are required to achieve optimum results, though the exact number of treatments may vary depending on the treatment area and the results you desire. Your physician will be able to give more accurate details as to the number of repeat treatments required.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
ThermiSmooth Austin does not require you to take any time away from your usual daily activities; as soon as the procedure is over you can continue with your day as normal. You may notice some redness and mild inflammation of the treated area for a few hours, but this is perfectly normal and will quickly subside.
