When time, weight gain, and aging have caused damage to the skin and body, even the most meticulous treatments often cannot reverse the effects. Someone who wants a more youthful and attractive appearance can take advantage of the innovative techniques available in skin smoothing and tightening treatments such as THERMI™.
THERMI™ is a temperature-controlled treatment system that can be used to rejuvenate many areas of the body. Patients can undergo this non-invasive procedure without any downtime and achieve maximum results within a few treatments. THERMI™ can be used for cellulite, wrinkles and fine lines on the face, vaginal rejuvenation, and tightening the skin.
Benefits of THERMI™
- Safe and effective
- Fast treatment
- No downtime
- No redness or swelling
Someone who is in good health and has realistic expectations may be a good candidate for THERMI™ skin tightening and anti-aging treatment. It is important that patients are willing to maintain their appearance with diet, exercise, and repeat treatments.
THERMI™ Can Address:
- Sagging tissues
- Fine lines
- Loose internal and external tissues of the vagina
At the office of John L. Roussalis, we offer a few different THERMI™ treatments. Depending on what area(s) a patient would like to address, one of the following procedures will be used to achieve their goals:
- THERMIsmooth® face: Used to smooth wrinkles on the forehead, cheeks, and neck as well as around the eyes and mouth. Within a series of three to six treatments, THERMIsmooth® can get rid of wrinkles and smooth out the facial skin.
- THERMItight®: Reduces the appearance of sagging skin and wrinkles on the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs, and knees. THERMItight® provides optimal skin tightening after just one treatment.
- THERMIva®: Rejuvenates the inside and outside of the vagina to rejuvenate the tissues affected by the natural aging process and/or childbirth. Most patients achieve full results after three treatments.
During THERMI™ treatment, a tiny probe or handpiece is used to address target areas by emitting a predetermined therapeutic temperature. The instrument provides constant feedback to ensure that the correct temperature is administered throughout the treatment. This gentle heating of the tissues using radiofrequency energy stimulates the growth of new collagen to tighten and/or smooth the tissues of the face, neck, and body. Most patients say the heat from the THERMI™ system feels like a warm massage, making it a comfortable treatment.
Depending on the target area and severity of correction needed, the number of treatments to achieve full results will vary. The most treatments a patient may need to undergo is eight sessions, which is sometimes necessary for cellulite reduction.
Recovery and Results
After treatment, a soft wrap is applied to the skin. Typically, most patients return to work and normal activities the next day.
Overall, patients will notice a significant improvement in the appearance of sagging skin, wrinkles, and cellulite. They can expect to restore their confidence when they feel fresher and more youthful after treatment.
