ThermiSmooth Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when fat presses against the webbing of thin connective tissues that lies beneath your skin. The gaps in that connective tissue allow a portion of the fat to protrude through, which creates the dimpled appearance of cellulite.

Cellulite isn’t harmful, but it can make you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your skin. Women tend to experience cellulite more frequently than men, largely due to differences in the structure of those connective tissues. There also appears to be a genetic component to cellulite, so if a close relative has cellulite, you are more likely to develop it, as well.

How does ThermiSmooth treat cellulite?

ThermiSmooth uses radiofrequency energy to prompt new cell growth in the deeper layers of your skin. That helps smooth your skin, reducing the appearance of cellulite. At the same time, treatments cause your skin to constrict, further tightening the treated area.

It takes a series of 4-6 treatments over a timeframe of 6-8 weeks to achieve optimal results. You begin to notice improvements within a few weeks after your first session, although it can take several months for the full effects to develop.

What other areas can ThermiSmooth improve?

ThermiSmooth can also tighten the skin on your face and neck. If you have loose or sagging skin beneath your eyes, at your jawline, or beneath your chin, treatments can help tighten and tone your skin.

ThermiSmooth uses patented technology to deliver results. The system has an integrated, real-time temperature control that ensures your skin is never heated to an uncomfortable temperature. Most men and women liken the experience to a warm massage and find treatments to be relaxing. You can even read or listen to music during your appointments.

Many men and women prefer radiofrequency treatments like ThermiSmooth because there is no need for advance preparation, no recovery time, and none of the risks associated with cosmetic surgery. Results are impressive yet gradual, so no one notices that you’ve had anything done. You’ll just look more youthful and well-rested, but without an unnatural, overly tight appearance.
