ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight both tighten areas of the skin, removing wrinkles and bags. Both of the products are frequently used under the eyes to eliminate crow’s feet and puffy eye problems that can’t be resolved in other ways. Both products do excellent work when it comes to making your skin look younger. Also, the process remains non-invasive and comfortable.
So, what is the difference between the two procedures? And which method should I choose?
How does ThermiSmooth Work?
According to dermatologist experts, ThermaSmooth works by shrinking the collagen under the skin when heat over 40 degrees centigrade is applied to it. During this process, skin shrinks and the skin begins to look younger. Heat is delivered using a handpiece. Heat levels can be adjusted, allowing for individual patient needs and comfort. The ThermaSmooth process is designed to be comfortable. Some patients even describe the experience as being like a massage.
While many men and women choose to use ThermiSmooth on their eye region, you can also use this process for the mouth, forehead, neck, and eyelids.
What is the ThermiSmooth Process?
Because TheriSmooth’s process is non-invasive and gentle, several treatments may be needed to get the results you desire. Ask your dermatologist for an estimate of the number of procedures you will need to get you your desired goal.
During the ThermiSmooth process, your dermatologist will examine your skin, take a complete medical history and consult with you about your potential success using this method of skin improvement. During the treatment, a small amount of unique gel will be placed on the area being treated. Next, the handset massages the areas of concern, while it automatically adjusts the heat levels to suit you individually. Each area will be processed for approximately five minutes per small area.
Most people being treated notice an improvement in the tightness of their skin after the first treatment. Full results occur in between three to six months of repeated dermatological visits.
The best way to decide whether the ThermiSmooth process will work for you is to consult with a board-certified dermatologist.
How does ThermiTight Work?
If you’d like to eliminate both loose skin and excess fat, ThermiTight remains a process you should seriously consider. You and your dermatologist can weigh the pros and cons of using this process for your excess skin removal. Lots of advantages abound, and only a few disadvantages.
If you have wrinkles nearly anywhere on your body, ThermiTight removes them. One of the areas that ThermiTight patients find the best results is on the neck. Those deep necklines respond very positively to these non-invasive treatments.
ThermiTight works by using a radiofrequency device that tightens skin and removes excessive fat. The radiofrequency treats the inner layer of the skin directly for some excellent results. An anesthetic injected into the skin keeps the procedure pain-free. Also, during a ThermiTight process, a cannula with a blunt tipped probe is placed under the subcutaneous skin, and heat is placed on the area. After putting it under the skin, the probe heats the area being treated to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat contracts skin and causes collagen to form. An infrared camera monitors the heating of the skin for safety purposes.
Once ThermiTight treatments are completed, a compression bandage completes the procedure and prevents swelling. The treatment time takes from 45 minutes to up to two hours, depending on the area being treated. You will need someone with you to take you home after the procedure, too.
You will start to see improvement within about three weeks of treatment. Skin tightening and fat removal improvements continue up to 18 months after the ThermiTight process. Your best results will probably occur within about six months. So if you want your arms slimmer for your daughter’s wedding, you’ll need to plan ahead of time.
Generally speaking, ThermiTight costs from between a couple of thousand dollars to about $8,000.
Comparing ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight
So, here’s the comparison. Both ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight remove wrinkles well. If you need fat layers removed, too, you should consider ThermiTight. If you want the look of an eyelift and a minimally invasive procedure, choose ThermiSmooth. If you wish to other areas of your body smoothed and reduced, you’ll need to talk to your dermatologist to help you make that decision. ThermiSmooth has little to no downtime, while you may need some downtime with ThermiTight. The results of both types of treatment occur over a period of about six months, though improvement may be seen sooner.
Also, very few people shouldn’t do either of these processes for medical reasons, although most individuals benefit from either procedure. So, if you want smoother, tighter and younger looking skin, talk to your dermatologist to help you decide the correct method for you.
