The Laser & Surgery Center of New York offers a nonsurgical approach that can improve under-eye bags as effectively as it tightens facial skin: ThermiSmooth®.
Dr. Shelton appreciates the extensive research and excellent safety profile achieved by the makers of ThermiSmooth® and other devices, ThermiAesthetics. These devices are built on the ThermiRF® platform, which uses radiofrequency energy to precisely heat tissues. RF energy may be used to tighten skin, improve tone and help redrape loose facial and neck tissue.
The devices are designed for specific types of applications. When in the experienced hands of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Shelton, these customized devices deliver RF energy to targeted trouble areas. The collagen protein in the deeper layers of skin is also stimulated to tighten lax tissues.
You can look refreshed and vibrant in as little as three to six sessions spaced a couple of weeks apart. The ThermSmooth® Face handpiece delivers powerful, yet gentle, dermal heating to the temples, under-eyes, lower cheek, above the lips, and neck.
The temperature at the skin’s surface and into the epidermis and deeper dermal tissue is monitored for your comfort and safety. No anesthesia is needed. Dr. Shelton can treat your entire face and neck in about an hour. The procedure is well-tolerated, and patients often say ThermiSmooth® feels like a warm massage. You can get back to work or other activities, as lingering effects such as pinkness typically fade in minutes. Unlike a number of other procedures, you can even wear makeup and sunscreen following treatment.
ThermiSmooth® Body can be used to replenish firming collagen and tighten connective tissue in nearly every area of the body where you may be plagued with pockets of stubborn fat, including:
