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 had a great experience with Dr. O'Brien. I had skin cancer on my ear and Dr. O'Brien performed surgery to remove it. The surgery was performed on the day that there was a mobile lab at his office and Dr. O was able to test tissue samples on the spot to ensure all the cancer was removed. Dr. O'Brien not only removed the cancer but did a fantastic job with the appearance of my ear such that one would never even notice any evidence of a surgical procedure. I look great and am cancer free. Many thanks to Dr. O'Brien and his terrific staff. Highly recommended for any type of procedure. Absolutely first class!"- B. / Google / Jan 07, 2020

"Absolutely LOVE this office!!!! The PA Mary does my Dysport injections and she does an amazing job. She is very conscious of being conservative with it so I get the look that I want.I also get spa procedures done here with their esthetician, Dana. The Hydrafacial leaves your skin glowing right after!! She also does dermaplaning on my face, which I never had done, but I will definitely continue to do with her.The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about what they do. I recommend this office to anyone who is looking for cosmetic needs! FIVE stars all the way!"- B.J. / Google / Dec 18, 2019

"I can’t recommend this practice enough! Everyone from the back office staff, to the esthetician, to the PA and doctor are so kind and take such great care of you. I have gotten a few hydrafacials with Dana the esthetician and they are not only relaxing but also very effective. I have also gotten some dermaplaning done and love that it’s a quick add on but helps all my serums and skin care really soak in. The best part about Dana is that she really takes the time to understand your skin goals and adjusts your treatments to make sure everything is aligned. The PA Mary has done my Botox over the past year, over four treatments with varying units between the brows and on my forehead. I like to have expression in my face and not look too “done” or “frozen” and she helps me achieve the perfect look. I still have slight movement in my brows and show expression but without any wrinkling. People always say to me “you don’t need Botox!” so I know that means it’s working exactly as I want it to! I trust Mary completely - she is a perfectionist and cares about giving me the outcome I am looking for, which is so important for someone you are trusting with your face! The staff is so amazing, whether it’s squeezing me in for a last minute appointment or helping me figure out the best treatment plans, they always have a smile and a helpful attitude. I love this practice and can’t imagine going anywhere else for my treatments!"- C.M. / Google / Dec 17, 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.
