ThermiSmooth™

  1. ThermiSmooth

Non-invasive Skin Smoothing

Precise, Gentle Epidermal Heating

ThermiSmooth™ is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated hand piece, which is supplied with the ThermiRF™ system. ThermiSmooth™ delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth™ treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage.

How ThermiSmooth™ Works

After applying a small amount of coupling gel, the ThermiSmooth™ hand piece is applied to the skin’s surface. The ThermiRF™ system is set to a specific target temperature (i.e.., 42°C – 45°C). The hand piece is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin surface. As the skin’s temperature rises to the targeted temperature, the ThermiRF™ computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.

  • Clinical studies show that the collagen in skin will shrink when heated to a sustained temperature in excess of 40°C. Further, it has been shown that when the skin is heated to this level, an inflammatory process is engaged which can stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen over a period of time. Therefore, the challenge is to deliver precise amounts of heat, without risking overheating the tissues and causing patient discomfort.
