What is ThermiSmooth?
ThermiSmooth is one of the techniques from the new ThermiRF system.
Using targeted radiofrequency energy, ThermiSmooth heats up the skin of the target area. The ThermiRF system is unique in its ability to constantly sense and adjust to the temperature of your skin.The result is a very comfortable treatment session that, for most people, feels similar to a warm massage.
When your skin’s collagen reaches around 104ºF, it reacts by shrinking. This shrinking effect is what causes the skin to naturally tighten, smoothing skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. At the same time, your skin’s natural inflammatory response to the heat is to produce new collagen, furthering the beneficial effects of the procedure.
As time goes on and your skin’s collagen fibers heal and strengthen, the results become more and more apparent.
ThermiSmooth vs. Ultherapy & Thermage
There are many different ways to achieve tighter, firmer facial skin. Facial lifting techniques take a number of different forms, but ThermiSmooth is by far the safest, most comfortable, and least invasive of them all.
Unlike Ultherapy and Thermage, ThermiSmooth isn’t painful. This is due in part to how the procedures are performed and also to the ThermiRF system’s constant and consistent temperature measurement and adjustment. The ThermiSmooth procedure will never heat your skin above the optimal temperature needed to achieve great results.
Most patients describe the feeling of ThermiSmooth as being akin to a gentle, warming massage.

Clinical Study at Artemedica
We were excited to be one of only a handful of offices in the United States to be included in the IRB Clinical Study for ThermiSmooth Body (Formerly known as Thermismooth 250). The procedure was new to the United States in 2014 but had been approved in Europe where they have performed thousands of treatments with successful results. Following our clinical study, ThermiSmooth Body was FDA approved in December of 2015.
Candidates for ThermiSmooth
Most anyone who wants to safely deal with wrinkles and minor texture issues of the face can use ThermiSmooth. However, depending on a number of factors, ThermiSmooth may not be right for you. Artemedica can help you determine the best course of action for your skin! Contact us today to begin your free consultation.
The ThermiSmooth procedure is usually very quick. Most sessions last about 30 minutes. Depending on the areas treated and a number of other factors, though, treatment can last for over an hour.
Recovery & Results*
Minor swelling and redness may occur. In almost all cases, patients who undergo the ThermiSmooth procedure need no recovery time—you can simply get back to your day!
Many patients can see results from ThermiSmooth after the first treatment, however in most cases multiple treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. The gradual production and strengthening of collagen in the skin means that results become more apparent as time goes on. Full results become apparent after 3-6 months.
Most people require 3 treatment sessions to achieve optimal results. The time between each treatment session is usually around 2-4 weeks.
