About ThermiSmooth Face
The ThermiSmooth Face procedure at St. Petersburg Center for Plastic Surgery in St. Petersburg, FL is a nonsurgical treatment that may soften fine lines and wrinkles around the neck or face. The procedure works with radiofrequency technology that permeates the deep layers of skin to boost the natural production process of collagen. This enhances the welfare of the skin and works to fix problem areas. Thought to be a safe and efficient therapy, ThermiSmooth Face is suggested by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John J. O'Brien Jr. since it does not require the downtime that's necessary for surgical choices.

"Dr. O’Brien is an artist. I’ve witnessed his amazing work with trauma patients, emergency room patients and elective patients. He is also an incredible teacher and mentor! Highly recommend."- K.B. / Facebook / Aug 10, 2019
"Dr. O'Brien and his entire staff are the best, most professional, and kind people you could ever hope to find. From the initial consultation with the doctor himself, to each and every follow up appointment after my procedure, I left the office feeling exceptionally positive and very well cared for. I had a combined neck lift and ablative laser on my face. My friend had a face lift and tummy tuck (separate procedures) and we both feel that our expectations were exceeded. Both Anesthesiologists are MD's and the nursing specialists, KC and Katie are exceptional. Dr. O'Brien is one of the most personable doctors I have ever met, and his office has a family oriented vibe. I liked that he always took as much time during appointments to discuss each and every detail with me. Look no further if you want the best care!"- C.M. / Yelp / Jul 25, 2019
"I highly recommend Dr. O'Brien to anyone considering plastic surgery. I visited several doctors during my search and none of them compared to Dr. O'Brien. We were greeted warmly, listened to, treated with respect and dignity and I never felt pressured or rushed. Dr. O'Brien made me feel at ease and always went above and beyond to answer all of our questions. I had breast augmentation and could not be happier with the results! Dr. O'Brien is amazing! Thank you!"- M.R. / Google / Jul 15, 2019

A great candidate for ThermiSmooth Face is any individual seeking to minimize the look of dynamic wrinkles and folds without needing to undergo an operation. It's also ideal for those who display signs of aging or have light-to-medium skin laxity. During a private consultation, Dr. O'Brien will examine your complexion and discuss all your concerns to determine if this treatment is right for you.
During treatment, a small amount of gel will be placed on the targeted area(s), and a special handpiece is used to emit controlled radiofrequency energy to gently warm the treatment areas of skin. Temperature can be adjusted based on your skin type and reaction to the treatment. This gentle heat shrinks collagen under the skin for a smoother, more youthful facial appearance. The handpiece will be moved across the skin in a circular pattern, treating the targeted area(s). Treatments take about 20 – 30 minutes, depending on the size of the selected area.
What to Expect
Following your ThermiSmooth Face treatment, you may experience mild redness, which should dissipate quickly. Unlike surgical treatment options, there is no downtime required, so you are free to continue your everyday routine right away. While some results may be immediately visible, final results will develop over the course of 3 – 6 months. A series of 3 – 6 treatments are recommended spaced 10 – 14 days apart.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do ThermiSmooth treatments cost?
There are many factors that affect the cost of ThermiSmooth such as the severity of the areas being addressed, your personal goals, and the number of sessions that are needed to attain your desired look. During your first visit, we can help estimate your costs and review all your options.
Will I eventually need a more invasive procedure?
The ThermiSmooth technology will provide temporary results. Even with plastic surgery in the future, your skin will continue to age and sag. If you are looking for longer-lasting outcomes, you should discuss your concerns with Dr. O'Brien during your consultation. He will have great insight on which cosmetic procedures may work best for you.
Is the treatment painful?
No. As a nonsurgical and cutting-edge treatment, ThermiSmooth does not cause great discomfort. Your skin may be a little red afterward but this will dissipate and many of our patients enjoy their treatments. The system also utilizes a precise and controlled heating technology to ensure your skin will not be damaged or harmed during the treatment process.
