Can ThermiSmooth help the appearance of love handles?

Thermi250 can help with love handles.
ThermiSmooth - Not Specifically Designed for Love Handles
The technology in ThermiSmooth technically allows it to be used anywhere on the body; however, because of the small size of the hand piece, the procedure is commonly used around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, forehead, and neck. For controlled skin tightening and rejuvenation in the abdomen and love handle regions, the Thermi250 (or ThermiTight) could be an effective option. If you desire fat reduction along with the skin tightening that Thermi250 provides, and are not interested in lipo or laser lipo, I would recommend combining with CoolSculpting. As in all cosmetic procedures, please be sure to speak with your physician further if you are considering Thermi in alternative areas so that a personalized treatment plan can be developed for you.
Thermismooth uses a small diameter probe for its application and therefore the physics of this devise makes it more appropriate for smaller areas such as around the eyelids and mouth. For treatment of small love handles without much excess fat using non-surgical means Thermi 250 would be a better platform. This is still a non-surgical radiofrequency device, which uses a larger diameter hand piece more appropriate for larger skin areas.

Yes it can. Aside from treating the face and neck area, Thermismooth can treat just about any part of the body including of course the flanks or love handles. However, you'll need to make sure that you don't set your expectations too high, because it is more for skin tightening, not necessarily as much fat reducing.
