Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It sustains muscles, tendons, cartilage, and internal organs and gives a supple, smooth texture and appearance to youthful skin. As we age, collagen production decreases and the skin gradually loses elasticity, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin.
At University Plastic Surgeons, we offer ThermiSmooth in Memphis, a noninvasive skin-tightening procedure that can restore a more youthful appearance to aging skin. Our acclaimed plastic surgeons perform reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, along with cutting-edge nonsurgical treatments, with artistry and a dedication to surgical excellence.
What Is ThermiSmooth?
ThermiSmooth is a nonsurgical, noninvasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to increase collagen and elastin production and tighten the skin over time. It uses a specially-designed, temperature controlled handpiece to gently heat the surface of the skin. This gentle therapy requires a series of three to six applications to achieve an optimal level of skin tightening and firming.
Can ThermiSmooth Be Used to Treat the Body?
ThermiSmooth can be used on the body to reduce the lumps and dimples of cellulite. This requires a series of four to six treatment sessions over a period of six to eight weeks. Patients describe this gentle therapy as similar to a warm massage.
When used on the body, ThermiSmooth stimulates collagen remodeling in a noninvasive procedure that requires no downtime. The temperature-controlled ThermiSmooth applicator can be used to treat:
- Breasts, chest, arms
- Back, flanks, abdomen
- Hips, buttocks, thighs
- Ankles, calves, knees

What Does a ThermiSmooth Treatment Feel Like?
ThermiSmooth in Memphis is a gentle, comfortable treatment using temperature-controlled radiofrequency energy. A small amount of gel is applied to the treatment area and the handpiece, set to a specific target temperature, is moved gently across the skin in a circular or sweeping motion for approximately five minutes in each area treated.
The ThermiSmooth system automatically adjusts the temperature of the device based on feedback from the patient’s skin. Most patients find the treatment both comfortable and relaxing. There is no downtime after a ThermiSmooth treatment session.
How Soon Will I See Results after a ThermiSmooth Treatments?
Most patients see results after their first ThermiSmooth treatment. However, a series of treatment sessions is usually required. Full results typically appear over a period of three to six months.
