ThermiSmooth 250: What to Expect?

ThermiSmooth 250 targets the area under the skin and is used to reduce the appearance of cellulite temporarily. ThermiSmooth® Body will also tighten and firm loose, sagging skin. ThermiSmooth 250 is performed using a handheld device that is applied directly to the skin’s surface. It is gently moved in a sweeping or circular fashion while gradually heating up the skin surface. This electrode uses controlled radiofrequency energy that targets areas under the skin to reduce the visibility of cellulite. As the targeted skin with the cellulite rises in temperature, the radiofrequency energy adjusts for precision heating. The targeted skin area is treated for about 20 minutes to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Our patients will undergo a series of these treatments over a 6 to 8 week period.* The number of treatments you receive will be determined based upon your personal cosmetic goals and body and degree of cellulite.


As we age and possibly go through multiple pregnancies, our skin and body change.

This all takes a significant toll on our skin. When your skin begins to look like it has dimples, depressions in the flesh, or lumps, that is known as cellulite. Cellulite is an embarrassing yet very common esthetic problem for many of our patients, mostly women. It is most common on the thighs and buttocks, but it can be found on the breasts, lower abdomen, and upper arms too. Cellulite in the thighs and buttocks can be unsightly and can cause embarrassment, especially during the summer when patients want to wear bikinis or shorts. Your heredity, skin thickness, gender, age, and how much fat and where it’s located on your body are all factors involved in whether you may get cellulite or not. Dr. Mariam Awada and the Staff at Michigan Cosmetic Surgery offers ThermiSmooth® Body for a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment to tighten loose skin and reduce cellulite on the chest, legs, arms, abdomen, and more.

What is Radiofrequency Energy?

RF (Radiofrequency) is a type of electrical energy that creates heat in the target tissue through resistance. Due to its controllable properties, the energy can be applied precisely for depth and temperature.

Is the ThermiSmooth™ 250 Body treatment painful?

Most people tolerate the treatment very well and have little or no discomfort. Patients often say it feels like receiving a warm hot stone massage and enjoy the treatment.

How many ThermiSmooth 250™ body treatments will I need?

Most people undergo a series of 6-8 treatments spaced approximately two weeks apart.

How long can I expect the ThermiSmooth 250™Body results to last?

Clinical studies have shown that the effects of the procedure can last 12 months or more. Results may vary and maintenance visits every year can keep your results looking their best.

How soon will I be able to see results from the ThermiSmooth 250™ body treatment?

This varies from person to person; however, you may see some results after just one treatment. For optimal results, a series of 6-8 treatments are recommended.

What pre and post-care do I need to follow?

Prior to treatment, all metal objects should be removed, including all jewelry and piercings. Patients should hydrate well before and after treatments for optimal results. You should avoid exposure to direct sunlight and tanning beds for 24 hours before and after treatments. Soothing, non-irritating creams and moisturizers may be used after treatments.

How soon can I return to my normal activities after the treatment?

This treatment has no downtime. You may immediately resume your normal daily activities following treatment.

What can I expect after the ThermiSmooth 250™ body treatment?

Patients can experience warmth and mild redness to skin that usually dissipates about 30 minutes after treatment, but can last up to 2-4 hours. Your treated area may be mildly swollen immediately after treatments. Depending on the area treated, you may experience some mild “aching” similar to a sore muscle after a workout. This should resolve in 24-48 hours. Heating of the skin promotes three different kinds of effect. Some of those effects are immediate, such as contraction of collagen, collagen remodeling, and increased elasticity. With time and a series of treatments, further tightening of the skin is apparent due to the stimulation of fibroblasts which leads to new collagen production over the long term. Continued improvements may be seen post-treatment over 6-8 months following your last treatment.

Am I a good candidate for the ThermiSmooth 250™ body treatment?

If you have cellulite, laxity and unwanted fat anywhere on the body- from head to toe, you are a good candidate. This treatment is good for all skin types.

Are there contraindications to the ThermiSmooth 250™ body treatment?

Some of the contraindications that will exclude you from being a good candidate are: Implanted devices such as, but not limited to, pacemakers, defibrillator, cochlear ear implant or any other implantable mechanical device affected by radiofrequency and pregnancy.

Non-Surgical Skin Tightening


ThermiTight Face, Neck, Arm Skin Tightening, and More!

ThermiTight is a non-surgical, minimally invasive radiofrequency skin tightening treatment that uses a tiny probe to deliver energy just beneath the surface of the skin. It is used to tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, tummy, breasts, arms, and thighs.

What is Radiofrequency?

What Should I Anticipate About the Forehead Lift Recovery?

Surgery will remove excess skin and stretched skin and will re-position skin, but it will not tighten skin unless heat is used. Perhaps it’s neck laxity, and you are not ready for a facelift, or maybe you just do not want a facelift? Or it’s that little extra skin on the abdomen or arms that bothers you, but you don’t want a scar?

How do we do achieve tightening of tissue without surgery? The secret is radiofrequency energy and Thermi-Tight!

Radiofrequency is like a microwave oven in how it heats food. Microwaves are ultra-high-frequency radio waves that when contacting water containing substances will result in the production of heat within the food. When applied to living tissue, the production of this heat will cause the tissue to tighten or shrink by stimulating collagen. This does not happen immediately but over a period of up to 18 months.

ThermiRF™ uses radiofrequency, but instead of ultrahigh frequencies as used in a microwave oven, ThermiRF™ uses low-frequency radio waves to heat tissue and cause contraction of that tissue.

What is involved in the micro-invasive procedure?

The micro-invasive treatment is when only a break in the skin as small as a pinhole, made by a needle is made. There is no need for stitches and no visible scarring. For Thermi Tight few tiny holes are made in the skin with a hypodermic needle. Next, a thin blunt-tipped hollow instrument called a cannula is placed through those tiny holes in the skin so that a local anesthetic can be introduced under the skin to numb the area being treated. Next, a thin probe is placed through those same needle holes and introduced under the skin being treated. The tip of the probe emits radiofrequency energy or heat while the probe also records the temperature inside the skin to the technician to ensure the optimal heating for skin tightening is achieved.

We utilize a special infrared camera that is aimed at the treatment area, and an infrared temperature map of the area is displayed on a monitor continually so that the technician achieves the surface temperature goal at all times and to prevent a burn from occurring.
