Body Skin Laxity

As aging progresses, collagen loss occurs in the skin and support structures that surround our muscles. This loss of support leads to the appearance of skin laxity. Until recently, treatments for body skin laxity utilized technology designed for small regions of facial skin, and were expensive and time-consuming as a result. The introduction of ThermiSmooth has changed that by providing body-specific treatment options and delivering effective, cost-efficient and comfortable solutions for sagging body skin. 

ThermiSmooth may be suggested if you have body skin laxity with or without mild to moderate fat excess. While many patients come to us seeking treatment for cellulite on the abdomen, thighs, or upper arms, often a combination of skin laxity and fat excess is to blame. ThermiSmooth works by delivering radiofrequency energy to heat the skin, resulting in collagen contracture and skin tightening as well as some fat contouring. Although it does not provide the same body contouring as CoolSculpting or SculpSure, most patients enjoy ThermiSmooth treatments and compare them to a hot stone massage. Usually a course of three to four treatments per area is recommended, and treatments may be performed weekly. Results are often visible within one to two months and continue to progress over four to six months following the final treatment. As with any skin tightening treatment, we recommend regular maintenance sessions to retain your results.
