ThermiSmooth™ is a technologically advanced skin tightening technique, which is available here at Dr. Shelton's practice in NYC. It works with safe and gentle radio-frequency energy to stimulate contraction and development of skin collagen without surgery.
How ThermiSmooth™ is different
Aging is a complex process. Facial wrinkles and sags rarely have a single cause; therefore, they can rarely be corrected with a single treatment. Dermal fillers are among the most popular age-fighting products, because they replace volume and "fill in" wrinkles. Yet, fillers cannot correct lines on the forehead, which are caused by stiff muscles. For that, we need a product such as Botox®. There is another factor in wrinkling and sagging skin neither fillers nor Botox® address, and that is skin laxity.
Over time, collagen production decreases, and the existing network weakens, resulting in lax, crinkled, sagging skin. This is often very noticeable in crepe-paper looking skin on the eyelids and around the eyes, or around the lips. ThermiSmooth™ is designed to stimulate collagen remodeling and production, improving the firmness, elasticity, and texture of skin.
Comprehensive age-fighting treatment
Often, a complete plan includes several procedures such as skin tightening, fillers, neuromodulators (Botox®), and resurfacing. However, everyone is different, and the specific needs of patients vary. Dr. Shelton is well known for his exceptional skills and elevated standards of quality. One of the secrets to his success is providing individualized care, tailored to the unique needs and goals of each patient. In his Manhattan practice, every treatment begins with an aesthetic evaluation and an in-depth discussion. We take the time to listen to you, and we are always happy to answer your questions. If you are a candidate for ThermiSmooth, we will discuss the treatment as well as any potential alternatives.
