At Lahiri Plastic Surgery, double-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sabrina Lahiri provides ThermiSmooth in The Woodlands to address cellulite and sagging skin. ThermiSmooth uses radiofrequency energy to improve the appearance of skin on the face and the body. This treatment is safe, comfortable, non-invasive, and non-surgical.
The Benefits of ThermiSmooth
ThermiSmooth is a treatment that can be used on the face and the body to treat sagging and cellulite. It can be used on a number of areas, including the following regions:
- Upper arms
This treatment creates a more youthful appearance and offers natural results. Unlike various other skin treatments, it is safe for all skin types.
How Does the Treatment Work?
As we age, our skin produces collagen protein at a reduced rate. As a result, our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. Additionally, fat cells expand and push through gaps in the fibrous cords that connect our skin to our muscle tissues. This creates the appearance of cellulite.
ThermiSmooth involves the application of radiofrequency energy to the skin tissues. The heat from this energy encourages the tissues to produce new collagen protein. It also causes a remodeling of the existing collagen fibers.
The resulting new and improved collagen restores skin elasticity and health for tighter skin. This reduces the bumpy and dimpled appearance of cellulite.
The ThermiSmooth Process
Typically, a ThermiSmooth treatment session takes around thirty minutes to perform. In some cases, it can be shorter or longer based on the chosen treatment regions.
First, cooling gel is applied to the targeted regions. An applicator is then used to deliver the radiofrequency energy to the skin. ThermiSmooth is not a painful treatment; rather, it is gentle and creates a feeling of warmth in the tissues. Because of this, there is no need for any sort of anesthetic.
Aftercare Following Treatment
There is no recovery period or downtime after ThermiSmooth treatment. Instead, patients can immediately go back to their daily activities without dealing with weeks of frustrating downtime. Very minor swelling or bruising may be present but will fade quickly.
The results of the treatment appear gradually as the new collagen protein is produced in the skin. Thus, patients can enjoy results that naturally improve over time.
In order to achieve results that best fit patients’ aesthetic goals, it will be necessary to come in for a series of ThermiSmooth treatment sessions. These must be performed over a period of six to eight weeks so that the tissues can relax and heal between treatments.
The cost of ThermiSmooth treatment varies depending on factors such as the number of areas being treated and the types of issues being addressed. At Lahiri Plastic Surgery, to help with the price of treatments, we provide financing through CareCredit.
