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.
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 may 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.
