Juvederm and ThermiSmooth?

I am thinking about getting Thermismooth for under the eyes to tighten and I would like to know if it will have any affect on juvederm in the eye troughs that I had done 18 months ago. What is the cost of Thermismooth in Michigan and what are the long term side effects and is there any down time.

Combining ThermiSmooth and Juvederm

There are currently no studies demonstrating any negative effects to the ThermiSmooth procedure from the presence of dermal fillers such as Juvederm; however, I would recommend against having dermal fillers injected in the area on the same day the ThermiSmooth treatment is performed to avoid any potential reactions. Theoretically the ThermiSmooth procedure could cause Juvederm to dissolve more quickly, although the likelihood of this occurring appears small, since ThermiSmooth heats the dermis while a dermal filler injected into the tear trough is placed deeper. As in all cosmetic procedures, it is very important that you meet with your physician to evaluate the area and establish a personalized treatment plan.

ThermiSmooth is a completely non-invasive procedure that is FDA cleared and results in no downtime. Our patients generally experience mild redness, which typically dissipates within an hour, and they can apply makeup immediately after the treatment if desired. Furthermore, there is no required anesthesia and patients return to regular activities as soon as they have finished the procedure. The cost of ThermiSmooth in Michigan will vary depending on the physician performing the procedure, although I would recommend you consult with a Thermi preferred provider when deciding upon where to receive your treatment.

Thermi Smooth after filler placed under your eyes

I would wait 2 weeks after your filler has been placed in your tear troughs before having ThermiSmooth. The filler should be placed deep under the muscle and should not be affected by the ThermiSmooth.

Juvederm and ThermiSmooth?

We see patients like this all of the time and have not had any problems with early resorption of the Juvederm.  

Given the superficial depth of absorption of the heat energy, you should be fine.

Look for a nationally certified ThermiRF physician before proceeding.  As a national trainer myself, I can tell you that the device is only as good as the person operating it!

I hope that helps!

ThermiSmooth for eyelid tightening is commonly done with fillers for tear troughs in my NYC practice

Usually the fillers that are used to improve tear troughs are injected below the muscle and the ThermiSmooth energy will not penetrate to that level. It is common to have a hyaluronic acid filler placed in the plane above the bone underneath the eye and then perform a series of biweekly ThermiSmooth treatments.

Juvederm and Thermismooth

It is perfectly OK to have Thermismooth around your eyes at this time. It will have no negative effect on the Juvederm . It is one of the most common treatments we perform in our office.

ThermiSmooth and Fillers

Thermi doesn't harm fillers if anything it helps sculptra produce more collagen.  I suggest you see an expert for treatment.  Best, Dr. Emer.

ThermiSmooth under the eyes

Thank you for your question. There is absolutely no downtime and you shouldn't experience any adverse effects if you go to an expert Thermi doctor. Please check out the Thermi website to locate a doctor in Michigan closest to you. Costs vary (around 1,500 in my area) and there's absolutely no downtime. You may experience a little bit of redness upon treatment - this is from the heat that is topically applied to your skin. This goes away within a couple hours after treatment at most. Hope this helps, good luck!

Juvederm After ThermiSmooth

After 18 months most, if not all, of the Juvederm would have naturally dissolved. It is ok to get ThermiSmooth. The treatment is extremely safe in experienced hands and without downtime. Hope this helps.
