ThermiSmooth - No Downtime

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.

Downtime from ThermiSmooth

There is no downtime after a ThermiSmooth procedure around the eyes. You can go back to normal activities immediately and you see no noticeable changes on your face other than some short-lived redness. Plus, the procedure is painless and quick.

ThermiSmooth can improve quality of ce

I usually recommend five to six biweekly ThermiSmooth treatments. Some patients think their good results in one day after the procedure is a good indication of their long lasting results, but this is not true. the initial swelling that is microscopic helps reduce the fine lines and ThermiSmooth can be used as a radiofrequency "facial" to create better quality skin for a social function.  The true improvement is seen after several ThermiSmooth treatments but the peak result may not be shown for six months or more after the last treatment as more collagen is produced.

Downtime with ThermiSmooth

No downtime with ThermiSmooth. The treated area becomes red/pink during the treatment, but should resolve over 30 minutes to a few hours. Makeup can be used to camouflage any noticeable areas if you desire.

There is no down time required following a ThermiSmooth treatment. The procedure is completely non invasive, and depending on the area to be treated, you could potentially do it on your lunch break and go back to work!!

No downtime with ThermiSmooth

After the procedure you will have some redness overlying the treatment area. This typically fades within 30 minutes with some mild residual redness possible till the next day. If it is bothersome, makeup can be applied that day.
