The length of time of treatment sessions will vary, depending on the area being treated. In most cases, a full-face treatment will last less than an hour.
Before your treatment, you should make sure that you have removed any jewelry from the area, and our team will encourage patients to wash their face to remove makeup and lotions from the skin. Patients should also take great care in ensuring they are well-hydrated before their procedure to reduce discomfort, and because hydrated tissues respond the best to the ThermiSmooth treatment. Male patients should shave or wax hair in the area a day or two prior to their procedure to ensure the handpiece makes the best contact with the skin for the most effective results. It is important that patients do not shave or wax the day of the treatment or they will experience discomfort during their procedure.
Absolutely! When ThermiSmooth and other treatments are performed by our licensed and trained medical professionals, patients can rest easy that their services are completely safe and effective in providing desired results. We take great care in ensuring patients are proper candidates for treatment before they undergo the procedure. We advise patients who are pregnant, have electrical devices in the body, or have cut and infected skin to avoid treatment. This is discussed with the patient prior to services to confirm candidacy.
It is important that patients understand the longevity of their treatments. ThermiSmooth services will provide results for approximately 9 to 12 months after the initial session. Then the skin will begin to gradually change. It is essential that patients come in regularly for retreatments if they are interested in maintaining the results for many years to come. Treatment will not stop natural aging. However, it can slow the process down and maintain more youthful skin for longer.
Many of the patients who come to our practice seeking cosmetic improvements of the facial area may be introduced to a wide range of treatments, including ThermiSmooth, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and cosmetic injectables such as collagen stimulators, dermal fillers, and neuromodulators. Unfortunately, there is a point a patient may not see the desired results from these services. These are patients who have severe skin laxity and collagen loss that cannot be improved with these non- or minimally-invasive solutions. Our doctors at Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics may encourage these patients to consider plastic surgery as a way of achieving the results they desire. This is often a last resort for patients who are older or have not had any cosmetic work done in the past. There are certain risks and costs associated with plastic surgery, but in some situations, it is the only way to achieve tighter, more youthful skin. During a consultation appointment with our staff, we can help patients decide if they will benefit more from plastic surgery than other options, and we can refer them to a trusted professional in the area who can provide these services and help them achieve the results they desire from their cosmetic treatments.
