What is ThermiSmooth?
ThermiSmooth at Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta is a nonsurgical procedure that can lessen the look of cellulite and sagging skin on your body, and also works to soften fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and face, including forehead lines and under-eye bags. The treatment utilizes radiofrequency (RF) energy that permeates the skin to boost the natural production of collagen. This simultaneously enhances the health of the skin and works to fix areas of unevenness. Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta is pleased to offer this modern solution to help Norcross, GA patients achieve their goals with almost no downtime. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Gerry Sotomayor to learn more.

"I don’t have a reason to complain for the liposuction procedure at this clinic. The staff were friendly they didn’t share my procedure to anyone I was with. I simply brought myself with my lying roommate and he picked me up for the medical clinic after a couple hours. Healed just fine."- V. / Google / Dec 19, 2021
"(Translated by Google) Excellent doctor, I have known him since 97, he took care of my daughters' pregnancies, I love that he talks about God, great human being, it almost takes me 1 hour to get there, but it doesn't matter because doctor, like him, there is no where I live in covington, ga, what else can I say? God bless you always !!!! (Original) Excelente doctor lo conozco desde el 97 el atendió mis embarazos de mis hijas me encanta que habla d Dios gran ser humano casi me toma 1 hora para llegar pero no importa porque doctor como el no hay donde vivo en covington ga que mas puedo de decir d el k Dios lo Bendiga siempre!!!!"- T.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
"Love my Results but Scarring is Bad - I waited until I could do a real review. Now I’m over 3 months post-op. I first did a consultation the second week of March. Everything went well and told me I would be a candidate. The staff was really nice-A1. I met Dr Sotomayor briefly this day. I paid the deposit and scheduled for 2 weeks out for lower/upper ab and flanks (i wanted to do the back rolls as well but decided not to). I honestly booked on faith because the reviews were iffy. Day of surgery, I come in they take vitals and give me a “relaxation pill” and local anesthesia. Now here is where my problem lies but I was so out of it, I couldn’t respond at the time. I thought Dr Sotomayor was doing the surgery but it ended up being a lady named Dr. V. I feel she did me good but this def should’ve been communicated because I literally knew nothing about her. During the approx 2hr surgery, it was a bit painful but they acknowledged my pain and handled it great. I was sent home with instructions and meds.To sum this all up, I love my results considering I had a lot of fat-i think she said she got rid of 4000cc. After the lipo, i was not in a ton of pain but the itching and swelling is a beast. The scarring is bad. I have use Shea butter, Vitamin E oil and Bio Oil every single day, twice a day. The scarring has improved and hopefully will be non existent one day but only time and consistency will tell. If you are ok with scarring then go with them. The price was good considering I had a 35 BMI. My advice to Graceful Contours is to be up front about who will perform the surgery. I will add pics of my great outcome!"- C. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021

Our ThermiSmooth Technique
If you want to minimize the look of wrinkles, cellulite, or other signs of aging, you might be a good candidate for ThermiSmooth. The treatment is performed at our office near Norcross, GA, and usually takes less than an hour. Your technician will mark the treatment region and begin the process by gently moving the handheld device over the treatment areas. Most frequently, our patients describe the feeling of warmth during the treatment, but it should not be painful. For optimal results, it's suggested that you receive 3 – 6 treatments spaced about 1 – 2 weeks apart.
What To Expect After A ThermiSmooth Treatment
Following your ThermiSmooth treatment, you'll be able to resume your normal daily routine; however, you should limit sunlight exposure for a while as your skin may be sensitive. ThermiSmooth is a noninvasive procedure that does not cause any scarring, so you will usually be able to see noticeable results in about 2 – 8 weeks, depending on the region of the body that's treated. Results can last about two years, but touch-up sessions are recommended to maintain results.
How much do ThermiSmooth treatments cost?
How much your ThermiSmooth treatment will cost depends on how many sessions you'll need, what areas are being treated, how many areas are being treated, and the overall health of your skin. During your consultation with Dr. Sotomayor, he will assess your skin and listen to your aesthetic goals. Then he will be able to give you an estimate of how much your ThermiSmooth treatment will be.
I've lost a lot of weight. Will ThermiSmooth tighten up my skin?
While losing a lot of weight is a major accomplishment, it can leave both men and women with loose, sagging skin. Often the loss in skin elasticity from a dramatic weight change is too severe to be corrected without surgery. Dr. Sotomayor will assess your skin condition during your private consultation and will be able to tell you if ThermiSmooth or a plastic surgery procedure is better to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Will I eventually need a more invasive procedure?
Although the results from ThermiSmooth can be amazing, these are mostly temporary results. Even the results from plastic surgery are temporary as our skin and bodies are constantly changing as we age. If you're looking for longer-term results, talk to Dr. Sotomayor about your concerns during your consultation. He'll be able to help you decide if RF (radiofrequency) treatments or other procedures, including plastic surgeries, are best for you. Dr. Sotomayor may also have recommendations on the best treatments to achieve the results you want now instead of waiting until you're older.
Is the ThermiSmooth treatment painful?
No, ThermiSmooth doesn't hurt. Most patients say it feels more like a deep warming or slight tingling sensation. After the procedure, some patients may experience some redness in the treatment area. The ThermiSmooth platform has several safety features, including internal thermometers to regulate heat and a heat-mapping feature to monitor the procedure while it's in progress.
