First in Austin – Thermismooth Face and ThermiSmooth Body
Dr. Jennifer Walden is proud to offer ThermiSmooth™ to treat the face and body. ThermiSmooth delivers temperature-controlled radio frequency to the targeted area. ThermiSmooth can rejuvenate that face as well as reduce cellulite on the body. Two of the procedures that can be performed are ThermiSmooth Face and ThermiSmooth Body.
ThermiSmooth™ is performed using a specially designed thermistor regulated handpiece, which is supplied with the Thermi250™ system. ThermiTouch delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. ThermiSmooth treatments are gentle and patients often say it feels like receiving a warm massage. ThermiSmooth is usually done in the periorbital area (around the eyes) including the brow area for a bit of a brow lift as well as the upper and lower lids for a nonsurgical lift. Also, a larger applicator may be applied for other areas of the upper face such as festoons and cheeks to help tighten and lift by thermal radiofrequency energy. Dr. Walden is the first and only practice in Austin to offer ThermiSmooth treatments.
How ThermiSmooth™ Works
After applying a small amount of coupling gel, the ThermiSmooth™ handpiece is applied to the skin’s surface. The Thermi250™ system is set to a specific target temperature (i.e.., 42°C – 45°C). The hand piece is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin surface. As the skin’s temperature rises to the targeted temperature, the Thermi250 computer automatically adjusts the energy output to ensure precision of heating. A small zone is treated for about 5 minutes to achieve the goal of sustained heating to the target tissues. Treatments are repeated several times to achieve the desired cosmetic result.
