ThermiSmooth™ in Los Altos, CA
Mittelman Plastic Surgery, located in Los Altos, California, proudly serves the residents of Palo Alto, San Jose, and the surrounding area. Led by Harry Mittelman, MD, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Mittelman Plastic Surgery offers their patients ThermiSmooth™. ThermiSmooth™ is an innovative, non-invasive treatment that helps to treat the cause of skin laxity, as well as restore the healthy appearance of the skin.
What is ThermiSmooth™?
ThermiSmooth™ uses radiofrequency and heat to tighten the skin on the neck, jawline and face. This topical, non-invasive treatment works by using heat to stimulate the production of collagen underneath the skin. Patients who undergo ThermiSmooth™ treatments will notice that their skin looks healthier and tighter.
Are There Any Benefits to Using ThermiSmooth™?
A major benefit of using ThermiSmooth™ is that it decreases the appearance of wrinkles and improves the firmness of your skin. The procedure also does not have any major side effects. During your procedure, you will not experience discomfort. The amount of recovery time required after the procedure is minimal. In fact, you may not require any recovery time.
How Does ThermiSmooth™ Work?
ThermiSmooth™ uses a custom handpiece that works with the ThermiLift™ System. When placed on the treatment area, the handpiece releases heat to the skin’s surface. The heat encourages an increase in collagen production, reduces the signs of aging and tightens the skin. The ThermiSmooth™ handpiece automatically adjusts its energy to reach the desired temperature. The adjustable temperature helps to ensure that patients receive the most effective treatment.
What Happens During the ThermiSmooth™ Procedure?
Before your treatment, the staff at Dr. Mittelman’s office will cleanse your skin and apply a gel to the treatment area. During your procedure, the handpiece will apply a warming sensation to the treatment area. You will not feel any discomfort and the treatment takes between 20 and 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. To see lasting results, we recommend having six sessions over a one to two-week time period. Because ThermiSmooth™ does not involve the use of sedatives or anesthesia, you will be able to drive immediately after the procedure. The majority of patients who undergo this treatment are able to return to work and their other regular activities immediately following the procedure.
What is the Cost of ThermiSmooth™?
Because ThermiSmooth™ is considered an elective procedure, it is not covered by most medical insurance providers. We know that improving your appearance is important to you. Because of this, the staff at our office will gladly work with you to find a payment option that fits your budget. Please contact our friendly staff at Mittelman Plastic Surgery to discuss financing options to help make your dreams a reality.
