Controlled Non-Invasive Tissue Heating

ThermiSmooth® Face uses radio frequency to heat the skin and stimulate natural production of collagen. This helps strengthen and thicken the skin to improve its overall quality and appearance. ThermiSmooth Face is a non-invasive way to lift and smooth skin of the face without any pain or downtime.

ThermiSmooth® Face is performed using a specially designed temperature controlled hand piece.  The hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating.

How does ThermiSmooth work?

By transmitting radiofrequency energy as controlled heat into the dermis (the lower layer of the skin), ThermiSmooth causes the skin’s foundational collagen protein fibers to contract and triggers a natural inflammatory response that accelerates cell regeneration.

Collagen provides the skin with structure and elasticity, but its production slows with age, so skin becomes thinner, looser, and more crepey. Heat-based energy treatments like ThermiSmooth target collagen fibers and the cells that produce them (called fibroblasts). Skin becomes tighter, smoother, and more supple.

Boosting collagen production is a gradual process, and it takes weeks, if not months, to see noticeable effects from new protein fibers and renewed cells. 

To align with the rate of cell turnover and target all cells, an initial series of three to six ThermiSmooth Face treatment sessions, spaced two to four weeks apart, are recommended.

When you consult with your provider, you’ll discuss your treatment plan, including the areas you want to treat and the number of sessions you’re likely to need.

Each session lasts 30–45 minutes, and your provider will tailor it to your treatment goals, focusing on the areas of your face where you want to address laxity and lines. 

After applying a gel that helps conduct heat safely, your provider touches the handheld ThermiSmooth Face device to the surface of your skin and sweeps it across the treatment area in a circular motion. Each area will be targeted for 5–15 minutes.

Radiofrequency energy is transmitted through the skin without breaking the surface. The device adjusts its temperature in response to your skin heating, maintaining a comfortable level of heat the whole time. 

No anesthetic is needed. You can expect your treatment to feel like a warm massage, though you should let your provider know if it feels too hot so they can adjust the temperature to keep you comfortable. 

Side effects include minor redness and swelling, but you should be able to continue with your day post-treatment, with no recovery required.

  • When will you see ThermiSmooth results?
When will you see ThermiSmooth results?

You may notice some tightening immediately after your treatment session, given the heat-induced contraction of collagen fibers. Results will improve with every treatment session, and it typically takes three to six months to see the full effects.

After your initial series of treatments, you can maintain your results with follow-ups every 9–12 months.

ThermiSmooth®Face is a topical RF procedure which is performed using a specially-designed thermistor-regulated hand piece, which delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface though a series of gentle treatments over 6-8 weeks. Patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. As the hand piece is gently moved across the skin, it heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating. ThermiSmooth®Face is ideal on the face for problem areas around the forehead, eyes, mouth, cheeks, and neck.
