Skin tightening is one of the most popular non-invasive methods to rejuvenate the skin. The principle behind this treatment method is the use of heat energy to activate collagen remodelling and regeneration, resulting in smoother, tighter and more youthful skin. Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skincare is proud to offer its patients ThermiSmooth™, a breakthrough radiofrequency device that delivers beautiful skin tightening results safely, comfortably and precisely.
A professional consultation will determine your candidacy for ThermiSmooth™. The treatment involves the application of a coupling gel to allow the smooth movement of the handpiece over the treatment area. Gentle sweeping or circular movements gradually heat up the skin surface until the optimal target temperature is reached to achieve collagen remodelling and synthesis.
The ThermiSmooth™ treatment does not involve any discomfort or downtime and is often likened to the sensation of a warm stone massage. Patients may notice some mild swelling and redness around the treatment area which should subside within 24 hours. The results of a ThermiSmooth™ treatment are cumulative and continue to develop over several months after a treatment series.
How it works
The ThermiRF™ system is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy that heats the skin to a specific target temperature (i.e.., 42°C – 45°C) to activate tissue regeneration. The device is designed to automatically adjust the energy output to safely and precisely heat the tissues to therapeutic levels. The non-invasive and gentle treatments yield optimal aesthetic outcomes over several sessions.
