Patients interested in having a cosmetic treatment seek versatility, safety and effectiveness when choosing which procedures they will have. Thermi radiofrequency treatments offer prospective patients all of these benefits. These safe, science-backed treatments give patients who desire skin tightening on the face or body long-lasting rejuvenation in a treatment that is as safe as it is convenient. Women seeking to improve vaginal and sexual health concerns can also benefit from this discrete and comfortable procedure that can give them greater satisfaction and peace of mind.

How do Thermi treatments work?

Thermi treatments use radiofrequency technology, abbreviated as RF, to achieve the deep-level skin rejuvenation that patients want. Radiofrequency energy, applied to the skin during your Thermi treatment, warms the underlying tissues of the skin in a gentle and controlled fashion. The body’s natural healing response is initiated by the heating of these tissues; as a result, your skin tissues will generate more collagen and elastin, the compounds responsible for sustaining the structures in the skin that promote healthy skin tone and hydration. In addition, existing collagen structures will tighten as a result of heating, further enhancing your results. Each Thermi treatment is designed specifically to treat the symptoms typically found in that body area, and the strength of the radiofrequency energy applied will vary accordingly.

Thermi — one treatment, many applications

Thermi technology allows your board-certified plastic surgeon to rejuvenate numerous body areas and concerns safely and effectively. Your specific concerns will guide the selection of your Thermi treatment. Dr. Odinet’s patients have four Thermi treatments available to them.


ThermiRF offers patients both skin-tightening and fat reduction in a single, convenient and comfortable treatment. The controlled heat that stimulates natural collagen production and tightens the skin can also heat and destroy fat cells, offering patients dual benefits that together give them maximum rejuvenation.

ThermiRF gives patients multiple benefits of treatment in addition to outstanding results. The advantages of having a ThermiRF treatment include:

  • An in-office procedure that takes around one hour to complete
  • Minimal discomfort after treatment
  • No downtime
  • Natural results that develop quickly
  • Minimal risks and side effects

ThermiRF can be performed as a non-invasive or minimally-invasive procedure, depending on a patient’s needs. When fat reduction is desired, Dr. Odinet will insert a small probe directly into the skin tissue that promotes skin constriction as well as eliminates fat. The non-invasive variant of ThermiRF is ideal for patients who can obtain their full results through skin tightening alone; during this form of treatment, a handheld applicator will be passed over the skin in areas requiring treatment to produce a patient’s desired results.


ThermiTight also uses radiofrequency energy to provide desired skin tightening throughout the body, including the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs and knees. This application of the procedure is typically performed as a minimally-invasive procedure requiring local anesthesia and produces significant skin tightening with visibly smoother skin after treatment. Collagen and elastin production that is naturally stimulated by the procedure will continue your long-lasting results. The probe is small enough such that scarring after treatment is not an issue for most patients but some patients may require a couple of days of downtime.


ThermiSmooth is a non-invasive form of Thermi treatment that provides skin-smoothing results for patients concerned about loose, sagging or crêpey-looking skin.

ThermiSmooth Face can help minimize skin laxity that appears in the forehead, eye, cheek, neck and mouth areas of the face. Appropriate levels of radiofrequency energy will be applied to these delicate-skin regions using a handheld applicator. Brief circular motions are used to ensure complete coverage of this skin during treatment, which visibly reduces wrinkles and fine lines. Patients having ThermiSmooth Face experience their results with no downtime.

ThermiSmooth Body has a dual effect in treated areas, reducing fat and also tightening the skin where radiofrequency energy is applied. While each treatment is short, the total length of your procedure will depend on the amount of skin being treated and patients may require several treatments to have their full results. However, there is no downtime associated with ThermiSmooth Body treatments. Your results will develop in the following weeks as your body eliminates treated fat cells and produces more skin-rejuvenating collagen and elastin.
