Understanding ThermiSmooth treatment
Many patients are intrigued by non-invasive solutions to aging skin.

How does ThermiSmooth work?
Dr. Vikram Khanna is a Board-certified dermatologist who has invested in the ThermiSmooth technology for patients in his practice to treat the unwanted signs of aging caused by natural skin laxity. This specialized handheld device uses a unique handpiece that delivers radiofrequency energy right where it is needed. While applied to the surface of the skin, it reaches deep within to stimulate collagen production in the treatment area. The collagen tightens skin and reduces the depth and appearance of troublesome lines and wrinkles. Radiofrequency energy is safe and effective in helping patients get the results they desire!
Many men and women describe the sensation of radiofrequency as a heated massage that is applied directly onto the skin. The radiofrequency treatment is tailored to the patient, as the special handheld device allows the dermatologist to adjust the temperature for improved patient comfort and safety. This is what sets ThermiSmooth apart from similar facial radiofrequency treatments available in other dermatology practices.

How many treatments of ThermiSmooth are required?
Every patient is different, so it can be difficult to determine at the initial consultation appointment how many treatments may need to be performed to achieve the results patients desire. However, we may find that patients will benefit from more than just one service. During the initial consultation appointment, our dermatological team may be able to give you a ballpark as to how many treatments can improve the skin as desired but understand that this is not a hard and fast rule and the situation could change depending on the skin’s natural response to radiofrequency treatments.
