ThermiSmooth: Is it Painful?
Doctor Answers 5
ThermiSmooth is by far one of the most comfortable non-invasive procedures we offer at our practice. Patient's describe ThermiSmooth as being similar to a warm stone massage. Our Body Contouring Expert applies a gel to the area of treatment and moves the ThermiSmooth in circular motions as it gradually heats up for the duration of the treatment. Some of our patient's even fall asleep during the treatment!
ThermiSmooth is definitely not painful
ThermiSmooth is definitely not painful, nor should it be. The procedure uses a smooth metal tipped hand piece with a coupling gel to deliver the radiofrequency energy, which causes the results. It feels like a warm massage
ThermiSmooth for skin tightening feels like a deep thermal massage in my NYC practice
Some of my patients feels like they could sleep during the procedure. No anesthetic is needed. There is a mild redness that turns to pink and is gone in minutes to an hour or less for most patients.
