ThermaCool Overview

ThermaCool is a non-surgical facelift treatment can take years off your face. ThermaCool helps smooth and tighten facial skin and redefines natural contours, with a single treatment and little to no downtime required. ThermaCool treats sagging skin, lack of jaw line definition, loose skin under the chin, wrinkles around the mouth, forehead and eyes, and creates more definition in the lips.

ThermaCool uses radiofrequency technology, which heats the deep layers of the skin and cools the surface of the skin. The heat stimulates skin renewal in the body and strengthens the collagen present in the body, producing more of it at the same time. This results in less wrinkled skin, an improvement in the tone and texture of the skin and a younger look that a patient desires.

When you use, you are assured of making an informed decision because all of our cosmetic surgeons are pre-screened and continually monitored. Our qualified patient coordinators at are prepared to help you find cosmetic surgeons in your area, who specialize in ThermaCool, or we can provide a background check on any plastic surgeon.
