ThermiSmooth® Face is a procedure for improving the appearance of aging skin through tightening and increasing collagen production over a period of time. It uses a unique hand piece to deliver targeted heating to the surface of the skin. ThermiSmooth® Face is performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece. As the hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating, it targets problem areas around the eyes, mouth, cheeks and neck.
How does ThermiSmooth® Face work?
The collagen under the skin will shrink when sustained heat is applied to it above 40ºC. This initiates a process where the skin begins to tighten and the effects of aging are reduced. The ThermiSmooth® Face hand piece delivers this heat in a controlled manner to maximize patient comfort. ThermiSmooth® Face is a hand piece used with the Thermi RF system.
How does ThermiSmooth® Face differ from other non-invasive fat treatments?
While many non-invasive fat removal treatments currently exist, ThermiSmooth® Face with the Thermi RF™ system is the only one whose temperature can be adjusted to effectively treat each patient’s specific area(s) of concern. The patient’s comfort and safety is greatly enhanced by the superior temperature control system.
What areas can be treated with ThermiSmooth® Face?
ThermiSmooth® Face can treat many different areas of the face and is well suited for under the eyes, around the mouth, the forehead, eyelids, and neck.

During your ThermiSmooth® Face consultation, your technician will examine your area(s) of concern and answer any questions you may have. Your medical history will be reviewed, as certain conditions may exclude one’s candidacy.
What happens during a ThermiSmooth® Face treatment?
A small amount of gel is first applied to the area of skin’s surface in the treatment area. A specific target temperature is set and the hand piece is moved across the treatment area gently in a sweeping or circular pattern. The system will automatically adjust the temperature of the device based on feedback from the patient’s skin. A small area is treated for about 5 minutes and the number of treatments will be determined by you and your technician.
Is there any downtime with the ThermiSmooth® Face procedure, and does it hurt?
In almost all cases, patients who undergo the ThermiSmooth® Face procedure need no recovery time—you can simply get back to your day. In rare cases minor swelling and redness may occur. The ThermiSmooth® Face procedure is usually very quick. Most sessions last about 30 minutes. Treatments are gentle, with patients often comparing it to the feel of a hot stone massage.
How soon will I see results after a ThermiSmooth® Face treatment?
While multiple treatments may be necessary, most patients will see some result after the first treatment with full results developing over 3 to 6 months.
