Is it alright to get ThermiSmooth once a week for 4 weeks? Would it damage my skin? This would be around my lips.

Thermi Smooth

Yes, you can do Thermi Smooth within 4 weeks, but the ideal protocol is to have treatment at most 21 days apart to get the full benefit of tightening skin.

Thermismooth every 4 weeks

Yes you can do a treatment once a week for 4 weeks.  No there will not be any damage to the skin.  The most you will notice is some residual swelling that will go away over time.

ThermiSmooth for the lip lines?

I would agree with Dr. Emer in that you really need something more comprehensive therapy to achieve optimal results around the lips.  

To that, I developed the ThermiFill procedure to address lip lines and volume loss around the lips but with much less downtime than associated with most laser procedures.  To achieve optimal results and improve the peri-oral area from the inside-out, the ThermiFill procedure utilitizes the following:
  • ThermiTight to the upper/lower white lip (to tighten skin and encourage collagen growth)
  • Hylaruonic Acid filler to the skin itself (to fill in new lines while new collagen develops)
  • Full Face Microneedling (to encourage skin thickening and improvement of skin tone/appearance)

The entire procedure is performed in under and hour with swelling that lasts for around 48-72 hours at most.  Most patients see a mild degree of bruising and pain is managed with Extra Strength Tylenol or Advil alone.  

I hope that helps and encourage you to contact us for more information!

thermismooth can be performed weekly, but it will not give you a permanent change for lip lines. These needs lasers, fillers and skin tightening to get the best outcome. I find that ultherapy is better than thermismooth. I suggest a formal consultation.  Best, Dr. Emer.
