Hollowness under the eyes
Thank you for your question. Thermismooth is great for skin wrinkles/laxity. That being said, it does NOT address hollowness. The way radio frequency works is that it heats the underlying tissues to a certain degree of temperature quickly, and maintains for a number of minutes. These we know by science; increases and stimulates the production of collagen. It will not increase enough to fill in hollow areas, it may even make them appear more hollow due to the fact that the heat also shrinks fat cells. I would recommend you try an HA filler under the eyes such as Restylane Silk, Volbella, or Belotero.
Best of luck!

ThermiSmooth for Tightening Under Eyes
ThermiSmooth is a non-surgical procedure that will tighten the skin of the upper & lower eyelid and peri-orbital areas. It is not a primary treatment for hollowness under the lower eyelids. In these cases most would suggest a more comprehensive approach using appropriate filler. I find that ThermiSmooth offers the only procedure I can do with results that requires no anesthesia and no downtime, in less than 30 minuets I can have the patient back to her full and regular activitie

For tightening, yes!
Thermismooth is a great treatment around the eyes to tighten the skin and thereby help with eyelid hooding and wrinkles around the eye, but it won't help with hollowness. For volume replacement under the eye we have found that PRP injections with microneedling (Dermapen) work best. Typical fillers like Restylane and Juvederm can be used but sometimes result in unwanted under eye puffiness.

Will ThermiSmooth help with under-eye hollows?
- ThermiSmooth (around the eyes)
- HA Filler (to the tear troughs or under-eye hollows)
- Micro needling (locally or entire face) + topical bone-derived stem cells
I hope that helps!
