ThermiSmooth Q & A

What is ThermiSmooth?

ThermiSmooth is a nonsurgical, completely noninvasive treatment for wrinkles, lines, and crepey skin. When these features start to appear on your face, you might feel as if they affect the mood that you convey or that they make you look years older than you are. With ThermiSmooth treatments at Kalia Dermatology & Laser Center, you can revive the appearance of your face and neck without needing a face-lift of any kind.


Why do I need ThermiSmooth treatments?

It’s no secret that aging skin gets wrinklier. Your skin slowly gets looser as it begins to lose collagen, a structural fiber protein, and elastin, another fibrous protein that keeps your skin tight. Some environmental and lifestyle factors can speed up the process and cause you to start developing wrinkles earlier, including:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Dehydration
  • Certain medications
  • Sun exposure
  • Gravity

Having many wrinkles or even just a few can make you feel unhappy with the way you look. While there’s no treatment in existence that can magically reverse the damage, ThermiSmooth can aid in tightening your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and thin, papery skin.


How does ThermiSmooth work?

During a 30-minute ThermiSmooth treatment at Kalia Dermatology & Laser Center, one of our aesthetically trained Registered Nurses uses the temperature-controlled handpiece to massage particularly wrinkled areas of your face in a circular motion. As this happens, the device releases low-energy radiofrequency waves that penetrate your skin and your underlying tissues.

The energy heats your tissues and causes your collagen fibers to tighten. The heat also stimulates new collagen development, which happens over time. You can expect to see the effects for about nine months to one year after four treatment sessions.

What areas can I target with ThermiSmooth?

Treatments with ThermiSmooth are intended for your face and neck. These two areas are especially prone to wrinkle development because they’re usually exposed to sunlight. Many patients choose to target their aesthetic treatments toward their face and neck because these wrinkles are usually visible to others. Commonly targeted areas include:

  • Around the eyes
  • Forehead
  • Cheeks
  • Around the mouth 
  • Neck

Before your treatment, one of our Registered Nurses discusses your wrinkles and skin laxity concerns with you and develops your treatment plan accordingly. They also discuss the procedure with you in detail to make sure that it’s your best option for treatment.
