The changes that take place in the skin as a person gets older are not usually welcome. As a person loses facial volume and the condition of their skin changes, it starts to loosen. Instead of looking young and full, it becomes thin and prone to lines and wrinkles. ThermiSmooth® skin tightening is a treatment that is designed to tighten and tone the skin. We invite you to learn more about this treatment below.
How Does It Work?
The secret behind ThermiSmooth® skin tightening is radiofrequency energy. A hand piece is passed over areas of the face and body that have lax skin. It gently heats the skin, which causes it to tighten immediately. It also encourages the skin to produce more collagen, which will produce long-term benefits. Your skin will continue to improve as more collagen is produced.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated with ThermiSmooth®?
ThermiSmooth® skin tightening is often done on the face to treat the cheeks, the forehead, and the area surrounding the eyes. However, it can be used just about anywhere on the body.
This is a great option for those who are interested in a non-surgical way to rejuvenate their skin. It offers some of the benefits that you would get from an invasive lift procedure without the same downtime or risks. It does not involve any harsh chemicals. Best of all, since our specialist will be able to precisely control the temperature, you will be safe and comfortable during the treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Because ThermiSmooth® skin tightening is completely non-invasive, just about anyone who wants to improve the condition of their skin makes a good candidate for treatment.
There are two things that you can do in order to get the best results from your treatment. First, you should avoid smoking. Second, you need to stay hydrated. The reason why you need to avoid smoking when using ThermiSmooth® is because smoking dehydrates the skin. It also inhibits the tissues from absorbing oxygen. As a result, it works against skin rejuvenation treatments. Taking in enough water is extremely important when it comes to repairing your skin. If you take these two steps, you are well on your way to getting the best results from your skin tightening treatment.
