Say goodbye to cellulite with Thermismooth Body with Thermi250.
Thermi250 is a skin remodelling system that is based on radiofrequency (RF) technology. Approved by FDA and Health Canada, it treats cellulite by doing two things: eliminate unwanted fat and remodel your skin to make it healthier and more youthful. The treatment is designed to release and destroy trapped fat bulges, as well as reshape the cellular structure of your skin. By doing these two things, you’ll finally get rid of that cellulite you’ve always tried to hide!
Why it’s so effective
The device emits controlled radiofrequency heat at 470 kHz. This amount of RF heat has been extensively examined by doctors and scientists to be optimum for tissue rejuvenation and fat elimination.
Thermi250 technology is used for Thermismooth Body, the treatment you’ll receive to get rid of your cellulite.
After a complimentary consultation to determine whether the treatment is right for you, you’ll begin your Thermi250 cellulite treatment.
Preparing for your treatment
You should remove all jewelry before you begin your session. This is because heat is involved and jewelry may conduct the heat administered, increasing your risk of burns.
It’s best to arrive at your appointment with the targeted area free of makeup and other skincare products. We’ll also cleanse the area with a mild soap, just in case. This improves the effectiveness of the technology.
Your session may be rescheduled if you have an infection or cut in the target area. This is because wounded skin may increase your risk of infection or other negative side effect.
Your treatment is a relatively comfortable one. A handpiece is used to deliver the RF energy to the target area, to a temperature of about 43C to 45C. You’ll feel warm but not excessively hot, and possibly tingly. Some describe the sensation to be like static electricity, or like light shocks that you would get a dry environment after rubbing your feet on carpet. The feeling isn’t very uncomfortable and so no anesthesia is necessary. Each part of the targeted area will be exposed to the handpiece for about 5-7 minutes, so your treatment session won’t take very long. It usually takes only about 30 minutes.
This procedure might not be suitable for you if you’re highly sensitive to heat or have an active infection or wound in the target area.
What should I expect after my treatment?
The Thermi250 cellulite treatment doesn’t involve any knives or injections, so you won’t require any downtime. You’ll be free to return to work or other regular activities right afterward. Some amount of warmth and pinkness may be felt, but these are temporary and should disappear within 2-3 days. You may also ache a bit in the treated area, a sensation that is similar to the day after a good workout at the gym. This should also resolve in a couple of days.
To improve your recovery, you should:
- Drink plenty of fresh water to help nourish your body and flush toxins. Drinking plenty of water before your session will also help.
- Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours after your session. This includes tanning beds. If you go out, make sure to cover up the treated area.
- Moisturize the treated area well with a non-irritating cream recommended by us.
- Don’t touch the treated area too much.
- If you’re particularly red or achey, try to avoid drinking alcohol and extreme temperatures.
Please contact us or your doctor if you experience too much pain and discomfort or develop a rash or bleeding in the treated area.
When will I see my results?
Each session can produce a visible improvement, however we recommend about 3 sessions to achieve the optimal results.
After each session, it will take about 3-6 months for your skin to remodel its collagen levels. This process, called collagenesis, will occur in the months following your treatment.
The improvement will last as long as the effects of aging and the environment don’t take their visible toll. You may want to get “touchups” done every 9 months to a year.
