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.

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. After your treatment, you can get back to your usual routine without the need for downtime. You will typically see results within 2 – 8 weeks, depending upon the region of the body that's treated. Results could last up to two years, but follow-up treatments are often needed 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.
