SmartSkin+ vs ThermiSmooth – Charleston, SC

There are several options available for smoothing wrinkles, removing fine lines, and giving the area around the eyes and face a more radiant, youthful look. ThermiSmooth uses the gentle application of heat to help tighten the skin and encourages collagen production over time. SmartSkin+ is a CO2 fractional laser that produces similar results. Each has unique attributes which make the procedures appropriate for different cases.

Which Treatment is Right for Me – Smartskin+ or ThermiSmooth?

Ultimately, the choice of treatment will be made between you and your doctor, but having some background information about each procedure will help inform your decision. If your skin shows damage from UV exposure, uneven coloring, acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles, the SmartSkin+ CO2 fractional laser might be the appropriate choice. 

If your concerns are centered around the most sensitive areas of the face, like sagging eyelids, bags under the eyes, or the sensitive skin around the brows, the ThermiSmooth treatment’s non-invasive, gentle thermal procedure might be for you. When you discuss the procedures with your doctor, be sure to consider the severity of the wrinkles, discoloration, or scarring, whether you prefer a more aggressive treatment for fast results or a gentle treatment that takes longer to see results, and how much recovery time you’re comfortable with.  ThermiSmooth

What About Downtime?

Both treatments are non-invasive, so there is very little downtime, no matter which procedure you choose. Each treatment is customizable to best suit your needs and desired results. The SmartSkin+ laser treatment my produce sensitivity in the treated area for several days to a week after treatment. Optimum results are achieved in a course of three treatments. The ThermiSmooth procedure has little to no downtime, but it may take 3-6 treatments to see full results.

The Benefits of ThermiVA – Charleston, SC

ThermiVA is a revolutionary treatment that helps tighten and tone the most delicate tissues of a woman’s body. Many women suffer from stress incontinence and may wish to recover what childbirth or menopause has taken away. The ThermiVA treatment is ideal for tightening areas that may have been stretched by childbirth or simply the changes that come with aging.

ThermiVA Charleston, SC

  • Women seek the treatment for a number of reasons, including:
  • Stress incontinence
  • Improving the shape of the labia
  • Enhancing comfort and pleasure during intercourse
  • Improved comfort during exercise
  • To alleviate dryness problems

Why Choose ThermiVa?

The ThermiVa treatment is safe, painless, and effective. A narrow wand emits radiofrequency energy, gently warming the tissue. The waves increase circulation, create nerve tension, and increase collagen production in the area, leading to long-term improvement. Although there are surgical options available to address the problems women face after childbirth and menopause, they require extensive recovery time and may come with further complications. 

The FDA-approved ThermiVA treatment is non-invasive and has been proven effective in many cases. It’s important to talk to your doctor, to determine which course of treatment is most appropriate to your situation and goals. Many women find that the ThermiVA treatment is an effective, safe alternative to surgery. 

What to Expect

Prior to treatment, you will discuss your concerns and goals with your doctor. Tests will determine that you’re not currently pregnant and that there is no UTI or other vaginal infection present that may complicate the treatment process. 

The treatment is administered in up to three sessions, lasting about 45-60 minutes each. There is no need for numbing agents or anesthesia, because ThermiVa is a non-invasive, painless procedure. Patient report little to no discomfort.  Improvement occurs after each session, so you’ll enjoy the benefits after just one session.
