ThermiSmooth- skin tightening treatment and Juvashape-Body Contouring treatment

Published on August 7, 2017


ThermiSmooth™ is a non-evasive procedure which uses radio frequency for improving skin laxity. ThermiSmooth™ is performed using a specially designed hand-piece, which delivers precise heating to the skin’s surface. The idea is to heat the cells and stimulate the body’s own collagen production.The procedure itself is really easy. Sarah told me that many patients compared it to getting a hot stone massage and I can confirm that now that I have been through five ThermiSmooth™ treatments. After applying a small amount of coupling gel to the area being treated, the ThermiSmooth™ hand piece is applied to the skin’s surface in that area.

The ThermiSmooth™ system is set to a specific temperature (anywhere between 42°C – 45°C depending on how much the patient can handle) and then the person doing the treatment will move the hand piece in a circular motion while gradually heating up the skin in the area being treated. The skin’s temperature will slowly rise during the treatment, which is reached after just a few minutes. Once the desired temperature is reached, the area will be treated for about 5-10 minutes depending on the size of the area. Treatments are then repeated several times to achieve the desired result. Many people use it for problem areas on their face (eyes, cheeks and around mouth) or their neck. It’s a very gentle procedure, it’s non invasive and best of all, there is no downtime.

Juvashape offers a permanent solution for fat reduction and body contouring. The Juvashape radio-frequency technology provides precise and optimal heating of the skin for reduction, contraction and body shaping which that results in permanent fat cell death, fat reduction and cellulite improvement. Best of all, it’s non-surgical!

The negative pressure massage applies gentle vacuum pressure allowing for maximal depth treatment. It can be preformed right in the doctor’s office and it requires no topical or local anesthesia. The Juvashape applicator is simply placed over the area of unwanted fat/cellulite and the treatment is begun.

It takes approximately 20 minutes to treat an area of unwanted fat and/or cellulite. Common areas treated include the lower or upper abdomen, buttocks, thighs, the bra line, the inner knees and the upper arms. There is no downtime after having a Juvashape ™ treatment and like the ThermiSmooth™ procedure, it will require multiple treatments to get the desired effect.
