ThermiSmooth/iFine for Eyes [NonSurgical Eyelid Skin Tightening] Dark Circles + Drooping Eyelids Fix

ThermiSmooth and iFine are 2 non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that tighten and firm loose, crepey, and/or wrinkled skin around the eyes. Both use radiofrequency energy to heat the skin to the ideal temperature to remodel the collagen below the skin’s surface, to both tighten and firm the skin.

For a very long time, skin tightening could only be achieved through surgical means. Then, minimally invasive treatments began to appear that offered smaller incisions and shorter downtime than full surgery. Today, we have IFine and ThermiSmooth, two strong radiofrequency devices that offer impressive tightening, without surgery, downtime, needles, or anesthesia.

ThermiSmooth Quick Facts

  • ThermiSmooth is an FDA-cleared procedure
  • Radiofrequency concentrated below the skin to induce collagen rebuild
  • Results build naturally over time and last at least 3 years in clinical studies
  • Rebuild the collagen structure of the skin to lift, tighten, tone, and increase elasticity – repairing crepey skin, loose skin, sagging skin

ThermiSmooth Can Help Fight Against These Face and Neck Concerns

You will see ThermiSmooth advertised to treat many other areas of concern for the face and neck, including thinning neck skin, wrinkles on the cheeks and forehead, and brow sag. While ThermiSmooth can create some results for some patients in these areas, it is not our treatment of choice, because other technologies such as Sofwave, Ulthera, and even Thermage offer better results than ThermiSmooth for areas with heavier skin and deeper concerns, like muscle sagging, which does occur in the cheeks and down through the jawline and neck, with normal aging.

Here’s the best options that ThermiSmooth can help with:

Upper Eyelid Droop

Typically becomes a concern during the mid-30s to late 40s in most patients.especially of the upper eyelid can be difficult to treat with nonsurgical means. ThermiSmooth for Eyes is really the only effective nonsurgical treatment for this concern.

Undereye Bags

Undereye bags can be caused by a host of underlying causes, from excess fat to loss of normal fat pads to skin and muscle laxity. When loose and too-thin skin is the cause of undereye concerns, ThermiSmooth is an ideal solution. Not only does ThermiSmooth help to improve skin tone, texture, and tightness, but a thicker skin, supported by a good collagen net below will lay smoother over the area.

Crow’s Feet and Fine Lines Around The Eye

Are most frequently caused by repeated facial expressions which damage the collagen support below the skin. ThermiSmooth is a great treatment to help rebuild that collagen, creating plumper, more elastic skin that is better-suited to withstand the wear and tear of smiles and squints. Genuine smiles are shown by the crow’s feet, but overdone Botox can freeze away the genuineness of your expressions, including your smile. While our doctors are very attuned to this risk and believe in using Botox to soften, not freeze, expressions. This concern for natural movement in the face has led many patients to rely on ThermiSmooth to erase fine lines and wrinkles, with a natural result that doesn’t dull the sparkle in their eyes.

ThermiSmooth – An Easy, Gentle Series of Skin Treatments

ThermiSmooth Radio-Frequency For Skin Tightening

ThermiSmooth is both noninvasive and nonsurgical. Nonsurgical means there is very minimized surgical cutting, stitching, or incisions involved. Noninvasive means there is no surgery, needles, or other entry through the skin made. With ThermiSmooth, there are no needles, no anesthesia or numbing, and there is no downtime from work or social activities. Most patients describe the ThermiSmooth treatment as feeling like a warm massage.

ThermiSmooth works by sending radio-frequency from multiple angles to converging points below the skin to heat the skin’s deepest layers, activating the building of new collagen support structures, for thicker, tighter, more elastic and smooth skin. Because ThermiSmooth works by activating your body’s natural processes, the results are not immediate. It usually takes 3-6 months for your body to build the new collagen. However, these results were shown to last at least 3 years in clinical studies.

ThermiSmooth is recommended to be performed in a series of 2 to 6 treatments spaced weeks apart for the most dramatic results. Each treatment takes under an hour to perform and is performed without anesthesia in our comfortable treatment rooms.

  • Recovery & Downtime: Little to none
  • Numbing: Not needed
  • Cost: Schedule a consultation
  • Candidates: Patients looking to smooth and tighten skin without surgery
  • Duration: Up to 3 years
  • Why We Love It: Relaxing, comfortable treatment sessions

Why Choose Reflections Center
for ThermiSmooth Treatment?

Our specialized cosmetic physicians perform our ThermiSmooth procedures at Reflections – and have been for many years. In New Jersey, the medical board has stated that only physicians should perform radiofrequency treatments, and we have to agree. ThermiSmooth is a very comfortable and safe procedure in the hands of a skilled physician, but others may lack the knowledge of facial anatomy to perform the procedure safely and effectively. Our cosmetic physicians receive special hands-on training on ThermiSmooth and have the experience to ensure maximum results are achieved in each patient.

At Reflections, you’ll never be treated by a nurse, aesthetician, or physician assistant. Our cosmetic physicians practice only cosmetic medicine and have decades of experience in achieving our trademark stunning results. During a consultation, we’ll formulate a treatment plan and be completely honest about what kind of results you can expect. We’ll never push treatments or products you don’t need but we will help you explore alternatives if your chosen procedure isn’t the best route for your goals. We offer the widest selection of body contouring and skin tightening devices in the New Jersey area for that reason.

Frequently Asked Questions on ThermiSmooth Treatment

  • Am I a candidate for ThermiSmooth?

    Most patients are good candidates for ThermiSmooth. The few who are not, are those who have pacemakers (AICDs), and those who have had dermal fillers in the treatment area (under the eye) within the past 2 weeks (due to concerns that the ThermiSmooth could theoretically cause the dermal filler to dissolve faster).

  • What is recovery after ThermiSmooth like?

    ThermiSmooth does not require you to take time off from work or social engagements. It’s fairly rare, but some patients do see light swelling the day of their procedure. This swelling should resolve within 24 hours or sooner. Patients should expect to be a little red after the procedure, but this usually resolves in about an hour or so.

  • What anesthesia or numbing is used with ThermiSmooth?

    We are big fans of numbing cream and injections to make treatments more comfortable. But we’re happy to say, with ThermiSmooth, you won’t need, and you won’t want it. ThermiSmooth feels like a warm massage. It’s gentle and warm and relaxing. This is the perfect newbie aesthetic treatment because of that.

  • Is ThermiSmooth safe?

    ThermiSmooth is FDA-cleared for safety and efficacy in creating targeted injury and hemeostasis at precise points in the deep skin layers, a technique known to encourage the body’s immune response through the building of new collagen. The ThermiSmooth treatment has been performed for several years, with no significant complications (beyond swelling and redness). Reflections has been performing ThermiSmooth for over 2 years, and was one of the first offices in the country to receive this device.

  • Does ThermiSmooth hurt?

    No, ThermiSmooth feels a bit like a hot stone massage, but patients rarely say they find it painful. Were you to find it painful, we do offer pronox in our offices for comfort management in procedures like Ultherapy, and this would be an option available to you.

  • Does ThermiSmooth work for Cellulite?

    No, ThermiSmooth feels a bit like a hot stone massage, but patients rarely say they find it painful. Were you to find it painful, we do offer pronox in our offices for comfort management in procedures like Ultherapy, and this would be an option available to you.
