About the Treatment
What is it?
ThermiSmooth® Face can be used to improve skin laxity in the forehead, brows, cheeks, or neck area. It is performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece, which is applied to the skin’s surface. The controller is set to a specific target temperature. The hand piece is moved in a circular motion across the surface while it gently heats the skin targeting problem areas. This non-invasive treatment requires no anesthesia, no incisions, and no downtime!

The best way to know if you are a good candidate for ThermiSmooth is to receive a consultation from Dr. Wei. However, patients who meet the following criteria are typically great candidates for ThermiSmooth Face:

How is the treatment done?

There is no recovery or downtime so patients can get right back to their regular routine, including exercise. In rare instances, patients might experience some minor redness and swelling, however, this should diminish very quickly.
How long does it take to see results? How often do you have to follow up?
While some patients can begin to experience results after just one treatment, three treatment sessions are typically recommended for optimal skin tightening. The collagen renewal process is a gradual one, revealing your results over the next several months. Full results can be expected after about 3-6 months and can last for up to a year or longer.
