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.

"I went for a consultation at John J. O'Brien's office and had a wonderful experience! I am looking into getting a breast augmentation and just went for a consultation to get an idea of how it all works and what sizing best suits me. The whole entire staff was very comforting and friendly and John O'Brien himself was incredibly knowledgeable about what he does for surgery in all aspects of plastic surgery. He made my boyfriend and I feel very comfortable by explaining his background and answering all of my question I had about breast augmentation surgery. You can tell he does whats best for the patient father than for himself. He is a little price and that is the only thing holding me up from actually moving forward with the surgery but other than that, I highly recommend putting him at the top of your list when trying to decide which sergeant to go with!"- CS / Solutionreach / Jan 31, 2019
"Dr. O’Brien performed a brow lift, lower face and neck lift, upper and lower blepharoplasty, fat grafting, and abdominal liposuction. Six weeks later I am very pleased and looking great! Dr. O’Brien explains procedures well and demonstrates a caring attitude towards his patients. I would use Dr. O’Brien again and highly recommend him. The office staff exhibits the same caring and concern for the patients."- C.M. / Healthgrades / Sep 16, 2020

We made a plan together that met my medical and cosmetic goals. His nurse and office staff are wonderful. All of my pre and post op appointments have started with minutes of my appointment time. From start to finish I felt well cared for and confident in Dr. O’Brien’s abilities."- D.F. / Google / Nov 21, 2023
Ideal Candidates for ThermiSmooth Face
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.
Procedure Techniques for ThermiSmooth Face
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 from ThermiSmooth Face
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 from ThermiSmooth Face
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?
