ThermiSmooth® Brooklyn, NY

Patients in and around the area of Brooklyn, NY faced with sagging skin are often worried that their only option is plastic surgery. However, thanks to advances in dermatology, the team at Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics offers another option: radiofrequency treatment. We have a procedure known as ThermiSmooth that can be used to smooth sagging skin and provide skin tightening with radiofrequency energy. This non-invasive procedure is highly recommended to patients seeking face tightening services in the area.

ThermiSmooth By Khrom

What is ThermiSmooth?

ThermiSmooth is a procedure that utilizes radiofrequency energy that penetrates deep into the skin to provide non-invasive tissue heating that stimulates the patient’s natural production of collagen and elastin, tightening the skin and providing a more youthful appearance for patients who are unhappy with the look of fine lines and wrinkles that have developed on their facial area

What is radiofrequency energy and how does it work?

Radiofrequency energy is an electrical energy that can be controlled and administered in a precise manner. Because of this, radiofrequency has been used in medicine in various ways, often including treatments of heat that can be used for pain management of the nerves. It has also been determined that it can provide smoother skin and was then developed for use on the face with the ThermiSmooth system.

Who is an appropriate candidate for ThermiSmooth treatments?

The best candidate for this radiofrequency treatment is any patient who has sagging skin or skin laxity on the facial area that they want to address with non-invasive treatment. Patients who have fat developing on the area of the neck and jaw are also candidates for this treatment through Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics. We encourage patients who have had recent facial or dental surgery and are still healing to wait until they are better before considering ThermiSmooth services. To determine if you are an appropriate patient for this or other advanced treatments available in our office, we encourage you to book an appointment with one of our professionals for an initial evaluation.

Where on the face can ThermiSmooth improve appearance?

All areas of the face can be treated with ThermiSmooth, including the:
  • Forehead
  • Eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth
  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Eyelids
  • Lips
  • Jowls

What are the benefits of ThermiSmooth?

ThermiSmooth is:
  • Non-invasive
  • Downtime-free
  • Gentle
  • Effective
  • Affordable
  • Safe and FDA-cleared
  • For patients of all skin types

How often do I need to undergo treatments?

Patients who are interested in amazing results will want to ask about the number of treatments that are needed to get the look they desire. ThermiSmooth treatments are often scheduled in a series of three, and most patients will benefit from anywhere between three and six treatment sessions.

What can I expect during a ThermiSmooth appointment?

First, the skin is cleansed to ensure makeup and impurities are removed. Then, glycerin is administered onto the targeted treatment area prior to beginning the procedure. The procedure itself is performed with the use of a specialized hand-piece that is operated by one of our trained and experienced professionals. This handpiece is moved across the skin in the treatment zone in a circular motion, administering radiofrequency energy right where it’s needed. This administration of energy works by gradually raising the temperature of the skin and therefore resulting in smoothing of the skin on the facial area. Most patients describe the experience of a ThermiSmooth treatment as a warm and gentle massage. With several treatment sessions, patients can achieve a more attractive appearance thanks to the resulting tightening and smoothing of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the area. Most patients handle the treatment well, though patients who are experiencing any discomfort are encouraged to speak to their provider, so the treatment can be adjusted accordingly to ensure a positive experience. No anesthetics or numbing creams are used for ThermiSmooth treatments. Patients may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treatment area for a few hours to up to one day following their service. However, patients can still resume their normal activities after treatment.

What aftercare instructions should I follow after my treatment sessions?

Below is a small sample of the aftercare instructions patients will need to follow after having their ThermiSmooth treatments completed at Khrom Dermatology and Aesthetics:
  • Patients can return to their normal activities following their treatment session, including work and social activities.
  • Patients should only wash their skin with warm water and a gentle cleanser.
  • Patients should avoid hot water in the shower or when they wash their face until redness resolves.
  • Patients can utilize cosmetics immediately after their treatment, though mineral-based products are recommended.
  • Patients can use non-irritating creams and soothing moisturizers on their face to improve post-treatment discomfort.
  • Patients should protect their skin from the sun as it may be more susceptible to sun damage by using sunscreen on the skin that is SPF 30, or higher.
  • Patients should take note to increase their water intake following their treatment to keep the tissues hydrated and help speed the process of results.

How long are treatment sessions?

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.

Is there anything I need to do before my treatment to prepare?

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.

Is ThermiSmooth a safe treatment?

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.

Will results from ThermiSmooth treatments be permanent?

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.

When should I consider plastic surgery?

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.
