ThermiSmooth® is a noninvasive, skin-tightening treatment using radiofrequency (RF) to stimulate collagen in order to rejuvenate skin’s youthful, healthy appearance without the pain and downtime of surgery. ThermiSmooth RF waves target fine lines, wrinkles, and aging skin, and the results can make patients feel more vibrant and confident about their appearance.
Almost anyone can benefit from the skin-tightening effects of ThermiSmooth, which can be done quickly as an outpatient procedure. Since there is no downtime, most people can return to work or social activities immediately after receiving treatment. ThermiSmooth can be combined with other wellness treatments and adherence to a healthy diet and lifestyle to provide even better results.
How ThermiSmooth RF Skin Tightening Works
ThermiSmooth RF skin-tightening treatments focus on the dermis (the tissue beneath the epidermis), which is the visible, outer layer of your skin, according to the Journal of Drugs and Dermatology. RF causes the cells in that area to heat up. The resulting heat stimulates the body to produce collagen and elastin, substances which give the skin elasticity and keep it from wrinkling and sagging.
Collagen is found in tendons, fat, and ligaments. Elastin, another kind of protein, is also found in the skin and helps the cells maintain their original shape and texture.
Unfortunately, as the body ages, it is normal for collagen production to slow down, causing skin to lose its elasticity, plumpness, and youthful appearance. Skin that lacks healthy levels of collagen and elastin thins out, weakens, and is more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging.
The RF waves of ThermiSmooth stimulate collagen and trigger fibroplasia, the formation of new fibrous tissue. The collagen fibers become shorter and more tense. The result is skin that appears tighter and less wrinkled.

What ThermiSmooth Skin Treatment is Like
When patients seek out the ThermiSmooth treatment, they should speak to a doctor to evaluate their skin condition and determine which treatments would be best for them. If a person is a good candidate for ThermiSmooth, they may decide to set a treatment plan in place. Some patients start with a series of several treatments given over a period of a few weeks. Once the desired results are achieved, a patient may maintain the effect by receiving touch-up treatments.
The ThermiSmooth procedure is given in the doctor’s office using a small handheld RF device to heat the skin and increase the production of collagen. The treatment is simple, only takes about 30 minutes, and causes very little (if any) discomfort. A patient may feel a heating sensation, and the doctor will monitor and adjust the patient’s skin temperature during the treatment to ensure that it will bring about the most benefits without the risk of burns.
After the treatment, patients may have a small amount of redness or swelling, but they will be able to return to work or their normal schedule without any downtime. Collagen build-up after treatment happens gradually, as the body responds to the process over time. Usually, patients see the best results three to six months after the initial series and will be able to maintain it with booster treatments.
Since, unlike cosmetic procedures such as surgery, ThermiSmooth RF skin tightening is noninvasive, patients will not experience dangerous side effects such as pain, infections, bleeding, or scarring.
