Nobody likes sagging skin and with the advancement in technology, there are now ways which can tighten your skin without any surgery. Thermismooth is one such Skin Tightening procedure. It makes use of a powerful radiofrequency system which has been approved by the FDA and Health Canada. It emits heat at a radiofrequency at 470 kHz, hence, it needs to be extensively examined for optimum tissue rejuvenation which will leave you with tighter and more youthful skin. The heat helps to tighten the tissues by building and rebuilding new collagen and eliminating unwanted fat right below the skin layer.
Is the treatment available for both face and skin?
Based on a high powered radio frequency technology, it allows for versatility which means that it can be safely used to target loose skin on both face and body. It targets even the most sensitive skin around the eyes. The treatment is incredibly comfortable and shows great results. In case you have low pain tolerance, then this is the perfect treatment for you. The laser gently warms the tissues which contracts the collagen molecules and stimulates their production and hence, remodels the skin at the cellular level.
Thermismooth can help to get rid of the wrinkles, fine lines and saggy skin in the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, around the mouth and along the lips. This treatment is safe to administer in particularly delicate areas. It is also an ideal way to get rid of loose skin on the stomach, cellulite and saggy skin on the buttocks and thighs and contour your body. Even though it might take about 6 months to see improvement, but there are chances that you might notice the reduction in cellulite after just one month.
What to expect after the treatment?
After the treatment, there is no need to go home and recover. Though you might experience some warmth, pinkness or even mild ache in the treated area, this would all resolve within 2-3 days at the most. This aching can be described as a good king of ache, the kind of ache you feel after working out at the gym. Each session lasts up to 30 minutes at most.
Once you are in recovery, make sure that you drink plenty of water as it helps to flush out the toxins and nourish your body. Avoid any direct exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours after the session, which also includes tanning beds. If you do have to go out, then make sure you cover up the treated area properly. Non-irritant creams will be provided to you which you need to use to moisturize the treated areas. In case your skin turns red or becomes achy, avoid drinking any alcohol or exposing yourself to extreme temperatures.
It takes about 3-6 months for the skin to remodel after each session. Though each session produces visible improvement, three sessions are recommended to achieve optimal results. The results usually last until the effects of ageing and environment don’t take a toll.
