ThermiSmooth® Face: Facial Line and Wrinkle Treatment
Laxity or loose skin of the eyelid and surrounding periorbital area is a universal sign of aging. Our faces can also show our age in other ways including through the manifestation of perioral lines. If you’re suffering with any of these concerns, Dr. Carlton Scroggins is excited to offer a non-surgical treatment to address these facial lines and wrinkles without the downtime associated with a traditional Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). That’s why he’s proud to be the first Plastic Surgeon in Prince George’s County to offer ThermiSmooth Face!
ThermiSmooth® Face uses a unique temperature-controlled radiofrequency platform to harness the body’s own natural repair response to tighten, thicken, and rejuvenate skin. The procedure is done in the Plastic Surgery of Greater Washington office with a non-invasive handpiece to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy to the skin and heat the area to a therapeutic temperature allowing new collagen to develop.
