ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight
Fight Loose Skin With ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight
ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight are excellent treatments that address skin elasticity and wrinkles on patients. At Behr Body Contouring, in Fresno, California, we provide both procedures based on the unique needs of our patients. ThermiSmooth is a procedure that works on smoothing the skin and tightening the face without downtime. It utilizes a heating mechanism that helps to rejuvenate skin cells. It can be used to treat most loose skin issues such as wrinkles, fine lines, and cellulite. ThermiTight tightens the loose areas in the jowls, neck, and lower face and is a good alternative to a facelift and necklift. Benefits of ThermiRF treatments include: no surgery, little discomfort, low risk of injury, little to no downtime, and safe for any skin type
The ThermiSmooth treatment is non-invasive and delivered through the ThermiRF device. It works through the process of epidermal heating in a massage like motion. The energy created from the radio frequency helps the temperature in the loose skin to rise slowly, while a small wand is moved in a circular motion over the treatment area. It normally takes several treatments to achieve optimal results. Your doctor will place gel on the treatment area, set a temperature, and begin the procedure. The warm temperature and motion will stimulate collagen and tighten up the treated area. There is no pain or discomfort, and most patients describe it as a massage feeling on the skin. Treatments last about 30-minutes and it make take three or more to achieve optimal results.
ThermiTight also tightens the skin, but it works differently than ThermiSmooth. It requires local anesthesia in the treatment area just under the skin. This will prevent discomfort and pain during the procedure. During ThermiTight treatment, a small probe is injected right under the skin in the sagging area. The probe uses radiofrequency energy to combat sub-dermal tissue. The sagging and loose skin becomes tightened as the tissue becomes more compact from the treatment. The tissue shrinkage happens right away and the session time depends on the number of areas you want to treat. Your doctor will adjust the temperatures as needed and for safety. Some patients notice results right away, but it can take up to 3-6 months to see the final results. Maintenance treatments are recommended and it may take several treatment sessions to achieve desired results. Most sessions take about 30-minutes to complete. Patients can usually resume a normal routine in 1-2 days depending on any bruising or swelling.
To get started, patients should consult with their doctor to discuss which ThermiRF treatment is right for them. Candidates looking to improve loose or sagging skin but don’t want invasive surgeries, may be ideal for either ThermiRF treatment. While these treatments create a more youthful appearance and tighten skin, they won’t shed years off your face, so patients should have a realistic approach to treatment and results as with any non-invasive treatment.
