Aging causes the body to undergo many changes, some of which can be dramatic. The appearance of loose skin, in particular, can make us look much older than we truly feel. Luckily, skin can be tightened and refreshed without the need for surgical treatments. ThermiSmooth® is an effective option for rejuvenating your skin and giving you a tighter, more radiant appearance. Schedule a consultation at one of our locations to learn more today.

What Causes Loose Skin?

The gradual loss of collagen and elastin fibers over time is the primary cause of loose skin. Sagging skin can also be exacerbated by environmental factors like exposure to sunlight and lifestyle choices like smoking. Genetics play a role too, and some people can develop sagging skin earlier than others.

How Do We Address Loose Skin?

ThermiSmooth® is performed using a specially designed temperature-controlled handpiece. The handpiece gently heats the skin’s surface using radiofrequency technology to stimulate the production of collagen and elastic fibers, which may give the appearance of smoothing or wrinkle reduction.

What to Expect From Treatment

You may experience some warmth and a mild pink-to-red appearance of the skin that usually dissipates in about 30 minutes post-treatment. Mild swelling and bruising may occur, which typically goes away within 2-24 hours. Diligent protection from sun exposure and the application of sunscreen after treatment will minimize pigmentation changes. Post-treatment care guidelines will be provided following treatment. Please schedule your follow-up appointment or further treatments with the office.
