What is the recovery from ThermiSmooth™ in NYC like?
We all want to look and feel our best, but sometimes it seems as if there simply isn't time. You may envision cosmetic treatments as inconvenient with lengthy recovery times, but with today's advanced medical technology, that is not always the case. ThermiSmooth™ from Dr. Shelton in NYC can help restore the youthful appearance of your skin with little to no downtime.
What is ThermiSmooth™ treatment?
The principle behind ThermiSmooth™ treatment is the reaction that skin has when exposed to heat. Researchers have discovered that temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius cause collagen fibers to contract, thereby tightening the skin. ThermiSmooth™ accomplishes this while keeping the temperature of the surface lower, so the process is comfortable and skin is not damaged.
ThermiSmooth™ utilizes safe and gentle radiofrequency (RF) treatment to tighten skin. When the cells absorb the (RF) energy, they create heat, which causes contraction of collagen. It is a gentle and comfortable procedure, often compared to the feeling of a warm massage.
Initially, existing collagen begins to shrink and many patients notice improvement soon after their first couple of appointments. Results continue developing as collagen production increases. For most people, a series of treatments is recommended with progressive improvement in skin texture and firmness.
What sets ThermiSmooth™ apart?
This is among the most advanced skin tightening systems on the market, utilizing state-of-the-art technology to for enhanced comfort, safety, and efficacy. The device is designed to be highly adjustable, enabling the provider to calibrate it to the patient skin and the treatment area. The temperature is monitored and maintained with precision accuracy.
The gentle nature of ThermiSmooth™ treatment makes it a good choice for fragile under-eyes, eyelids, and other difficult to treat areas. Results develop gradually, and several appointments are needed to achieve optimal skin tightening. However, most patients find it very easy to fit ThermiSmooth™ into their busy schedules, as the treatment is fast and comfortable with no downtime.
