THERMISMOOTH RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN TIGHTENING IN BEVERLY HILLS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Lower elasticity and collagen production as we age can lead to fine lines and sagging in certain areas of the face, including around the eyes and mouth. This can leave you looking tired, unhappy, or simply aged. While surgery remains the most effective way to tighten loose skin, more subtle tightening or lifting of the brow and eyelids, or smoothing of crepey or wrinkles skin, can be achieved nonsurgically with radiofrequency skin tightening. ThermiSmooth in particular offers a slim handheld tool that can effectively treat the tissue around the eyes and small areas around the mouth.

ThermiSmooth® Face Skin Tightening is an effective and non-invasive method of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the upper lip and mouth area. The treatment is also highly effective for providing a lift to the brow and tightening the brow and eyelid areas.

TREATMENT OVERVIEW

ThermiSmooth Face Tightening harnesses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the production of collagen, resulting in a smoother, tighter, and lifted appearance of the treated areas.

First, the skin is cleansed and a gel is applied to safely conduct heat. The treatment uses a handheld, radiofrequency device applied to targeted areas, which penetrates below the skin to increase collagen production and regenerate tissue by stimulating the body’s own natural healing processes. This tissue regeneration results in a smoother, tighter, more youthful-looking surface.

One treatment can achieve visible results, while multiple, targeted treatments can more dramatically rejuvenate the appearance and feel of your skin. Full effects will be seen in 3-6 months.

WHY IS THERMISMOOTH FACE RIGHT FOR YOU?

ABOUT THERMISMOOTH FACE

ThermiSmooth Face is performed using a slim designed hand piece, which delivers radiofrequency energy to treat the tissue through a series of gentle treatments over as little as 4-6 weeks. Patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage, with an occasional tingling sensation.

THERMISMOOTH SCIENCE

Clinical studies show that the collagen in skin will shrink when heated to sustained temperatures in excess of 40°C.

Further, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen over a period of time.

Therefore, the goal is to deliver radiofrequency energy sufficient to create just the right amount of heat, within a target range that is continually assessed during the treatment, to deliver results while minimizing discomfort.

How It Works

Collagen and elastin are proteins found in our tissues, and both collagen and elastin fibers contribute to the strength and elasticity of our skin. As we age, we produce less collagen and elastin, and that shows up as a decline in the integrity of our skin.

Radiofrequency energy delivered to the skin results in thermal energy (heat), and this heat can can change collagen by:

  • Immediately contracting the molecule
  • Stimulating fibroblasts (the cells that build the collagen ‘mesh’) to create new collagen
  • Over time remodeling or reorganizing the collagen molecules
  • Giving you tighter and refreshed collagen immediately, and new collagen and remodeling over time
WHAT TO EXPECT
  • Comfort: ThermiSmooth Face treatments are pain free and do not require anesthesia
  • Downtime: None. You can resume normal activity the same day.
