Do you have wrinkles, cellulite, or loose skin on your face and body? As you age, you may notice that your skin begins to crease and sag. Cosmetic concerns can negatively impact your self-esteem in everyday life, but the good news is that you don’t need to live with them. ThermiSmooth is a revolutionary, FDA-approved way to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin on almost any part of your body. It’s proudly offered as an anti-aging and cellulite treatment at Vimi Laser & Skincare Clinic in Scarborough, ON.
What Is ThermiSmooth?
ThermiSmooth is a new, non-invasive treatment option designed to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production to tighten skin over time. This treatment uses advanced radio-frequency energy, which can be adjusted to address the unique needs of each patient, to heat the skin to a therapeutic temperature. The energy is applied to your skin by hand-held devices that your doctor moves over the target area to warm your skin.
This process causes the contraction of existing collagen molecules, which tightens your skin and simultaneously signals your body to produce new collagen, which refreshes your skin’s structural integrity. These combined effects result in reduced cellulite and firmer, smoother skin, which can be seen as early as after your first treatment.
ThermiSmooth for the Face and Neck
This treatment is safe for the sensitive skin on your face. It can be applied on your forehead, cheeks and jawline, under the eyes, around the mouth, and on the neck. Common concerns in these areas include fine lines around the mouth and eyes, expression lines in the forehead, and loose, sagging skin on the jawline and the neck. This treatment is able to improve the appearance of these concerns in as few as 4 appointments.
ThermiSmooth for the Body
We often focus on the face when it comes to cosmetic treatments and procedures, but aging affects our entire body in a variety of ways. Loss of skin elasticity is one of the most commonly cited concerns when it comes to signs of aging. ThermiSmooth is ideal as a cellulite treatment and wrinkle-eliminator thanks to its ability to stimulate collagen production. This treatment can improve the elasticity of skin on your chest, breasts, arms, abdomen, buttocks, legs, and more.
Collagen, the key protein which functions as the framework of our skin, naturally breaks down over time. This can lead to signs of aging like wrinkles, cellulite, and sagging skin. ThermiSmooth helps reverse the side effects of growing older by rejuvenating your collagen production. It’s safe for almost every patient, effective on all skin types, pain-free, and requires zero downtime. Best of all, it has the power to restore your confidence and let you feel comfortable in your own skin.
Should I Consider ThermiSmooth for Anti-Aging Treatment?
The side-effects of aging may seem unavoidable, but good preventative measures like regular sunscreen use combined with effective anti-aging treatments like ThermiSmooth can refresh your skin and give you a more youthful appearance. Unlike invasive procedures or other treatments designed to soften wrinkles, expression lines, and sagging skin, this treatment offers almost no required preparation, a painless appointment, an easy recovery, and visible results in just a few days. It’s one of the best, no-hassle anti-aging treatments available.
Should I Consider ThermiSmooth for Cellulite Treatment?
Cellulite, or dimpling of the skin, is something between 80-90% of women experience at some point in their lifetime. It can be caused by everything from weight gain or loss to pregnancy to aging and most commonly affects the thighs, buttocks, and belly, although it can appear on other body parts as well. If you notice any areas of your skin with the classic orange-peel texture of cellulite, you may benefit from cellulite treatment like ThermiSmooth, which can leave your target area smoother in just a few weeks.
How Does It Work?
As a treatment, ThermiSmooth is quick, easy, and delivers results that can last years with regular maintenance appointments. It allows you the freedom to return to your daily activities immediately and is proven to work as a cellulite treatment, solution to loose or wrinkled skin, or a combination of the two. Finally, it’s an incredibly fast solution to some of the most common skin issues, making it a popular choice for patients seeking a short treatment plan with long-lasting results.
The first step on your journey to smoother skin is an initial consultation with your doctor. Your doctor will discuss your treatment options, examine your areas of concern, and pinpoint your ideal results to determine whether ThermiSmooth is right for you. You’ll review your medical and health history, including any recent facial or dental surgeries which could require more time to heal before pursuing treatment or implant devices which may interact negatively with the radiofrequency energy.
You should feel free to ask your doctor any questions you may have about any step of the treatment process. Once you’re approved for ThermiSmooth, your doctor will give you instructions on how to prepare for your first appointment.
1-2 days before your appointment, shave or wax your target area(s) to ensure that the handpiece used during treatment makes the best contact possible with your skin. You should remain well-hydrated during the 3-4 days leading up to your treatment. Hydrated skin is more receptive to this treatment and may even produce better results. If you’re afraid you’ll forget to hydrate, it’s helpful to set reminders on your phone to ensure that you’re drinking water regularly throughout the day.
If your treatment area is your face or neck, remove all makeup, including lotions or moisturizers, prior to treatment. You should also remove your jewelry. Take care to wear sunscreen if you’re planning to spend an extended period of time in the sun before treatment. Unprotected exposure to harmful UV rays is responsible for over 90% of all skin concerns, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and skin cancer. Prevent future cosmetic concerns by always applying sunscreen and reapplying every 4 hours if you’ll be spending a long time outside.
Your doctor will begin treatment by applying gel to the target area to make sure the handpiece makes smooth, continuous contact with the surface of your skin. Next, they’ll set the radiofrequency level, which will translate to a higher or lower temperature on your skin. Your doctor will select the best temperature level for your specific concerns.
For the face, your doctor will use a small handheld wand. This wand is moved across your skin with gentle pressure. The handheld device for the body is larger but used in the same way. This treatment is completely painless. As the appointment progresses, your doctor will regularly check your comfort levels. Most patients share that the heated handheld devices feel almost like a hot stone massage as the doctor applies pressure. A typical appointment lasts between 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the target area.
You’ll likely feel refreshed after your appointment. Even better, you’ll be able to return to your normal routine immediately with zero downtime. You may notice that your skin is pink and a little sensitive after treatment. This is a normal side effect and will fade within the first few hours after your appointment. If you treated your face, wash your skin with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser for 1-2 days after treatment.
Avoid hot water on your face or body until any pinkness has completely faded. If possible, add an extra 3-4 glasses of water to your daily intake to continue hydrating your skin and ensuring the best results possible. Finally, you can return to your normal workout routine immediately after treatment unless your doctor advises otherwise. You should see initial treatment results in the first days after your appointment and experience minimal side effects, if any.
Most patients notice that their skin looks and feels smoother in the first few days after treatment. Wrinkles should be less defined, cellulite should appear faded, and sagging skin should be firmer. Doctors usually recommend a minimum of 4 appointments 2-3 weeks apart to address the most common cosmetic issues. Depending on your ideal results and the condition of your skin, your doctor may recommend more treatments to achieve the skin you desire.
Patients generally finish their treatment plans between 8-10 weeks after their first appointment. Your target area should be noticeably improved. Under-eye bags are reduced, lines around the mouth are softened, cellulite is smoothed, and wrinkles and expression lines are less pronounced. You should look refreshed and may even resemble a younger version of yourself. Best of all, you’ll feel like the younger version of yourself as you stop worrying about the appearance of your cosmetic concerns and enjoy life to the fullest.
Once your personalized treatment plan is complete, you can expect to enjoy your results for 9-12 months. After this period, the collagen in your skin will begin to deteriorate naturally due to the passing of time. If you want to maintain your results, your doctor will help you determine when to return for maintenance appointments. These are generally performed every 6-12 months after the completion of your treatment plan to keep your skin looking its best.
In addition to maintenance appointments, you should remember to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun to enhance the effects of ThermiSmooth. With a dedicated skincare regimen, your results can last for many years to come.

Patients who have nerve sensitivity to heat in the target area or an implanted device should speak to their doctor as this treatment may not be ideal for them.
