Getting older comes with many perks, such as wisdom and respect. Unfortunately, there can be some disadvantages too, especially when it comes to your skin. Sagging, wrinkles and cellulite are common as you age, but they don’t have to be, and you don’t have to turn to surgery to get amazing results. If you are interested in rejuvenating your face and body, check out a little more about ThermiSmooth from NassifMD Plastic Surgery® in Beverly Hills, CA, and see if it is right for you.
What is Thermismooth?
Many people develop sagging, wrinkles or cellulite as they age, but don't wish to get a facelift or other surgery to fix these problem areas. ThermiSmooth is a breakthrough in non-invasive treatments that can be used to fix sagging, wrinkles and cellulite. This is just one technique that is offered by the new ThermiRF system.
The procedure works by using radiofrequency, which heats the skin. This causes some collagen to shrink, which allows your skin to tighten and smooth. At the same time, your body naturally produces new collagen. The collagen fills in those wrinkles and dimples caused by cellulite and makes skin look younger and healthier. For sagging skin on the face or other areas of the body, ThermiSmooth can give them a tighter appearance.
Why have a Thermismooth procedure?
You should consider a ThermiSmooth procedure because it is an incredibly effective but non-invasive solution to aging skin. Surgery is painful and leaves scars. Some other non-invasive procedures may make you follow a special diet to reach maximum results and others actually cause pain and discomfort. ThermiSmooth, however, is painless and leaves you with no scars to hide.
One of the greatest things about ThermiSmooth is that it doesn’t use fillers or an injection. The process forces your body to naturally produce more collagen, so you know it’s safe. Plus, ThermiSmooth can be used to fix so many different problems, making it a one-stop solution to correct issues all over your body. The results of ThermiSmooth last about one year or more, but if you come in for regular maintenance treatments every 9 to 12 months, you will be able to prolong those results.
Are you a candidate?
If you have sagging skin, cellulite or wrinkles, you are a probably a great candidate for ThermiSmooth. ThermiSmooth Face can treat the forehead, eyes, cheeks, mouth and neck. If you have problem areas such as sagging eyelids, wrinkles around the eyes or mouth or sagging jowls, ThermiSmooth Face is an excellent option to consider.
ThermiSmooth Body is the other option to consider. This procedure treats the chest, breasts, arms, stomach, flanks, back, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. Typically, you should consider ThermiSmooth Body if you have cellulite or saggy/flabby skin in those areas because it can tighten and lift those trouble spots. As with any procedure, your doctor will help you determine if you are a good candidate for ThermiSmooth Body or ThermiSmooth Face.
How Long Will the Procedure Last?
Most treatments last about 30 minutes, but your procedure may take longer, depending on the area being treated. You will probably need to have several treatments over the course of weeks to reach your desired results. Every treatment is tailored to every individual patient. Before your procedure begins, you’ll have a consultation to discuss your goals, and the doctor will work with you to create a schedule that will meet those goals. On average, expect to have about three treatments before reaching optimal results. Once you reach those optimal results, you’ll need to come in every 9 to 12 months to keep them.
What Can I Expect After the Procedure?
Most people have no complaints of pain or discomfort after the procedure. You may notice changes immediately after treatment, but it typically takes three to six months before you see complete results, and as long as you continue with maintenance sessions, you should keep those results.
Are There Risks?
Invasive procedures such as surgery have a lot of risks, including infection and pain. However, ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive procedure, so there are little to no risks. In rare cases, patients have reported minor swelling and redness, but this is usually not a problem. Other similar non-invasive treatments have been known to cause pain or discomfort, but ThermiSmooth is painless.
How Soon Can I Return to Work?
ThermiSmooth has absolutely no downtime. There is no preparation before the procedure, and there is nothing special you need to do after treatment. You can immediately return to your normal activities. In fact, because the procedure is so fast and painless, many patients choose to undergo treatment during their lunchbreak before returning back to work.
ThermiSmooth Face and ThermiSmooth Body are amazing solutions to many annoying problems associated with aging. What makes them really amazing, however, is that they are completely non-invasive and have no downtime, so you can get right back to your life without any scars or bandages to explain or hide.
