Although you can’t prevent aging, you can reverse it! This non-invasive procedure is designed to improve the appearance of aging skin. Clinical studies have shown that ThermiSmooth is effective in generating the product of fresh, new collagen. As you age, collagen production slows down, which can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin. Therefore, the production of new collagen aids in tightening of the skin for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
First, coupling gel is applied to the skin. Then, the hand held device used to conduct the procedure is set to a specific target temperature, determined by your plastic surgeon (42°C to 45°C). Through sweeping and circular motions, the device gradually heats the skin’s surface, causing the elimination of collagen, which tightens the skin and initiates the production of new collagen.
