ThermiSmooth & ThermiTight
These 2 non-surgical skin tightening treatments both rely on a device called ThermiRF™, a temperature-controlled radiofrequency system that’s cleared by the FDA to smooth and tighten skin by heating tissues beneath the surface. The ThermiRF system allows surgeons to apply sustained heat without damaging the skin’s exterior. This is the key to safely and effectively stimulating the gradual production of new collagen.
Here’s a closer look at each treatment:
- ThermiSmooth is non-invasive, with the surgeon using a hand-held device to deliver the heat energy through the skin. It is an ideal procedure for treating lax skin around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, and neck. The gentle, controlled heating stimulates the production of new collagen, which helps smooth and tighten skin. ThermiSmooth treatments get the best results after a series of 3 to 4 sessions.
- ThermiTight is minimally invasive. Your surgeon inserts a small probe through a tiny incision, delivering radiofrequency heat energy under the skin. The targeted area is numbed first, and your surgeon then uses the specialized cannula to heat tissue, simultaneously tightening and smoothing the skin while reducing small pockets of fat. Treatment areas include the face, jowls, neck, tummy, arms, and back — essentially any area where you’re concerned about the appearance of loose skin.
Who is a good candidate?
People who are concerned about sagging skin and facial lines who aren’t necessarily ready for plastic surgery make good candidates for these services. ThermiSmooth and ThermiTight treatments are ideal non-surgical alternatives for women and men considering eyelid surgery, a neck lift or neck liposuction, or a facelift.
Can treatments be combined?
Some patients can optimize their results by undergoing both treatments. A person can tighten jowls and loose neck skin with ThermiTight and minimize crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes with a series of ThermiSmooth treatments. During your consultation at West End Plastic Surgery, your surgeon creates a customized treatment plan designed to provide long-lasting results.

This is a revolutionary new procedure to treat the symptoms of vaginal atrophy, helping to restore self-confidence and improving interpersonal relationships. Having children comes with many wonderful blessings’ however, incontinence or leaking with laughing, sneezing and exercise is a frequent consequence of stretching the pelvic floor. Many women will avoid exercise because they are afraid of a leak spot on their clothes. Nearly 1 in 2 women that are peri-menopausal suffer from vaginal atrophy. Common symptoms are dryness, itching, painful intercourse, incontinence, and loss of orgasms during intercourse. These symptoms may have a significant impact on many areas of life including: relationships, feeling healthy and attractive, and participating in activities and travel. Until recently, discussion of these issues has been taboo.
ThermiVA uses temperature controlled radio frequency to stimulate new collagen formation which tones and tightens the tissues of the external and internal vaginal region. Patients often notice significant improvement after one treatment, but 2-3 treatments are recommended for optimal effect. In the pivotal study, all patients reported improvement in external appearance, incontinence, internal lubrication, and satisfaction during sexual intercourse. All patients completing the full course of treatment were very satisfied and strongly agreed that they would recommend the procedure.
As you can see, this truly a revolutionary treatment. The best candidates are women aged 25-55 who have finished having children and suffer from any of the symptoms of vulvovaginal atrophy. To learn more check out ThermiVA or Contact our office. Looking forward to hearing from you!
