Enjoy More Youthful Skin with ThermiSmooth Face™
Undergoing ThermiSmooth Face™ treatment at our Little Rock, AR, plastic surgery practice can help you enjoy firmer, younger-looking skin. This gentle, topical skin-smoothing treatment stimulates the generation of new collagen to soften facial wrinkles and lines. The versatile technique can also enhance the skin’s appearance in other regions of the body. Dr. Suzanne Yee often recommends ThermiSmooth Face™ as an alternative or complement to other more invasive plastic surgery procedures such as facelifts or liposuction. ThermiSmooth Face™ harnesses the power of radiofrequency to provide outstanding outcomes.

Determining Your Candidacy
ThermiSmooth Face™ is a multipurpose, minimally invasive treatment that can benefit many patients. You may be a good candidate for this procedure if:
- You want to address facial wrinkles, especially those in the periocular (around the eyes) region
- You are concerned with neck folds and jowls
- You have stretch marks in any area of the body
- You are in good overall health, without any medical conditions or allergies that could disrupt the safety or efficacy of your treatment
If you are interested in undergoing ThermiSmooth Face™ treatment, Dr. Yee will see you for an initial consultation. During this appointment, she will examine your body, go over your medical records, and talk to you about your concerns to help you decide if this treatment may be appropriate for you. It is also important that you have realistic expectations about the outcomes of this procedure. As a relatively noninvasive treatment, ThermiSmooth Face™ may not provide dramatic results. Dr. Yee will help you better understand what to anticipate before your treatment.
What to Expect During the Procedure
When you come in for your ThermiSmooth Face™ appointment, Dr. Yee will have you rest or lie down so you remain comfortable during treatment. Next, she will apply a special gel to your skin at the treatment site to facilitate the process. She will then calibrate our handheld radiofrequency tool to a specific temperature based on your needs and preferences. The computerized ThermiSmooth Face™ system will help to ensure that the radiofrequency energy remains consistent and controlled throughout the procedure.
Dr. Yee will then touch the instrument to your skin, moving it in a curving or circular pattern to administer the heat for about five minutes at a time per treatment area. This will help tighten your cells and encourage your body to produce more collagen, a form of protein that gives skin a tight, smooth appearance. Dr. Yee may repeat this process one or more times to achieve your desired results. Many patients find ThermiSmooth Face™ treatment comfortable and relaxing. This procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete. Patients will require a series of 3-4 treatments.
