Juvederm and ThermiSmooth?

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?
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!
