ThermiSmooth at Plano Aesthetics in Plano, TX is a nonsurgical procedure that can reduce the look of cellulite on the body, and can reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face and/or neck. It works by using radiofrequency energy that heats the deep layers of the skin to increase the natural production of collagen. This process improves the health of the skin and also works to correct areas of unevenness. A safe and effective treatment, ThermiSmooth is highly recommended by cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Caruth because it requires none of the downtime that is needed for surgical options. Following the treatment, you will be able to resume your normal daily activities.
The perfect candidate for ThermiSmooth would be anybody looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite or wrinkles without having to undergo a major surgery. ThermiSmooth can be performed to help decrease cellulite on several areas of the body, including the abdomen, ankles, arms, back, breasts, buttocks, calves, chest, flanks, hips, knees, and thighs. For the face and neck, it is best for patients who show signs of aging or have mild to moderate skin laxity.
Performed as an in-office procedure, ThermiSmooth treatments typically take no longer than an hour. Dr. Caruth will mark the area for treatment and then begin the process by gently moving the handheld device over the skin. Most often, our patients describe the sensation of the treatment like a warm facial or body massage. For optimal results, it is advisable that you have 3 – 6 treatments spaced about 1 – 2 weeks apart.
What to Expect
After treatment, you will be able to resume your normal daily routine, but are encouraged to limit sun exposure for some time. With no incisions or scarring, you can typically see results within 2 – 8 weeks, depending on the area of the body that was treated. Results can last up to two years, but follow-up treatments are recommended to help maintain results.
