About ThermiSmooth® Face
As one of the most visible regions on our bodies, our faces can quickly become a presentation of our age if we don’t do anything to prevent it. Lines around the forehead and eyes as well as folds near the mouth can seriously accelerate the aging process and make a divot in our self-image. When we begin to notice fine lines and wrinkles on our faces, it’s important that we do something about it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean surgery! You can achieve smoother skin with a quick and effective treatment using ThermiSmooth® Face — a minimally invasive epidermal heating procedure that reduces fine lines and wrinkles offered here at Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts. Using radio frequency heating, you can achieve younger-looking skin in the most gentle way possible.
The Fountain of Youth Isn’t Fantasy, It’s Collagen!
When the effects of aging begin to plague our skin, it’s not because of some uncontrollable element. Rather, it is because we start to lose much of the collagen that we once had flowing through our skin to keep it smooth and protect it from external factors. Collagen has numerous responsibilities within our bodies, one of which is replacing old and damaged skin cells with newer and vibrant ones. As levels of collagen are reduced, so too is the natural process that replenishes the skin, leaving us with wrinkles and folds that only serve to make us appear older.
Combating the natural aging process is not a lost cause. In fact, it’s easier than ever with ThermiSmooth® Face. The procedure administers radio frequency heating onto the epidermis (or topmost layer of skin) using a specially-crafted thermistor-regulated handpiece. The energy travels deep into the dermis (the bottommost layer) and stimulates collagen production. This activation of collagen gradually begins to rejuvenate the surface layer of skin and eliminate many of the imperfections that accelerate aging. The collagen that is produced is then able to induce elastin and hyaluronic acid, a protein and carbohydrate that help the skin retain moisture and improve in elasticity. The result is smoother skin that, with the increase in collagen, continues to improve over time.
