Thermi in the News

Dr. Buford chats with Aesthetic TV about how ThermiSmooth Body works

Dr. Buford featured in The Aesthetic Guide

As Gregory A. Buford, M.D., F.A.C.S., a plastic surgeon in Denver, Colo., pointed out, the aesthetic field has begun to embrace the total body makeover concept. “This is definitely the direction of aesthetic medicine, to look at the overall patient and come up with a ‘secret’ total makeover. The reason it is secret is that a lot of people don’t want it be known that they had some work done. At the same time they want results that are noticeable, but also natural looking.” Read the full article here. 

ThermiSmooth Body

Non-invasive cellulite reduction & body rejuvenation

Age, body changes, pregnancy…there is a long list of life events that can take a toll on the quality of our skin. Over time, a large number of people experience sagging tissues, pockets of stubborn fat, and cellulite dimples—and unfortunately many of these conditions are difficult to treat. Until now.

Using the patented Thermi heat technology, ThermiSmooth Body can improve skin tone, reduce small areas of fat, and even smooth away the dreaded “cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite, helping to improve the overall appearance of the treated area.

ThermiSmooth Body Before and After

ThermiSmooth Body is a great option for treating virtually anywhere on the body, including:

  • Chest, breasts, & arms
  • Abdomen, flanks, & back
  • Hips, buttocks, & thighs
  • Knees, calves, & ankles

Most of our patients are thrilled with their results after just three to six treatments—and they love that treatment is quick, gentle, and involves no downtime. Typically, patients are able to resume all normal activities right away, though it is normal to experience a bit of pinkness on the treated skin.

ThermiSmooth Body Before and After


Minimally invasive subdermal skin tightening


As you age, your skin begins to lose elasticity and stubborn pockets of localized fat begin accumulating in difficult to tone areas, leading to a sagging, aged appearance. ThermiTight is the first device to deliver temperature controlled radio frequency just under the skin (subcutaneously) to combat these signs of aging at the source. ThermiTight is a great option for treating lax skin and reducing small pockets of fat in the following areas:

  • Around the neck
  • Along the jawline (jowls & double chin)
  • Upper arms
  • Lower abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Flanks


During your treatment, a small probe will be inserted just under your skin. The treatment area will be numbed, and most of our patients report little-to-no discomfort. The probe will heat subdermal tissues to a specific temperature, which is monitored and regulated at all times to ensure a safe and successful result. Dr. Buford will carefully “sculpt” your desired results by moving the probe in small, precise motions, heating the targeted areas to achieve the optimal outcome. You will experience an immediate shrinkage of the tissues, with greater skin tightening results appearing gradually over the course of 6 months as collagen production in the treated area continues to increase.

Long-lasting lip rejuvenation for smoother, fuller lips

Combining non-surgical procedures often has a synergistic effect; this is certainly the case with Dr. Buford’s signature ThermiFill treatment. This two-step lip rejuvenation treatment begins with ThermiTight to stimulate collagen production for long-term smoothing and plumping, followed by Juvéderm Ultra XC injections to offer instantly fuller lips while the effects of ThermiTight get underway.

ThermiSmooth Face

Non-surgical & gentle dermal remodeling

thermi_smooth_face_0 (1)

To treat fine lines and moderate sagging in more delicate or hard-to-reach areas of the face, Dr. Buford often recommends ThermiSmooth. This device uses the same powerful ThermiRF technology, but applies it through the skin. The ThermiSmooth hand-piece delivers precise heat to the surface of the skin, triggering your body’s natural healing response to stimulate new collagen production over time and prompting your skin to “shrink” immediately. ThermiSmooth is a great option for:

  • Minimizing fine lines around the mouth
  • “Lifting” the corners of the mouth
  • Reducing wrinkles around the outer edges of the eyes
  • Improving sagging upper eyelids


During your ThermiSmooth treatment, the small applicator will be moved over your skin to heat up the target areas. Many patients report that it feels like a warm massage, and you will not experience any bruising or swelling after treatment. You’ll start to see positive benefits right away with final results appearing over the course of a few months.


Non-surgical feminine rejuvenation


It happens to many women, though it can feel uncomfortable to talk about: lax vaginal tissues and weakened muscles as a result of childbirth, aging, or genetics. Not only can this cause personal discomfort, it can also impact intimacy with your partner. If you feel self-conscious over weakened vaginal tissues, Dr. Buford now offers a nonsurgical way to safely and effectively rejuvenate the vulvovaginal area: ThermiVa. This minimally invasive and comfortable treatment provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Increasing vaginal tightness
  • Improving cosmetic appearance of external vulvovaginal area
  • Supporting natural lubrication

During your treatment, the same ThermiRF technology that helps firm sagging skin on the face and body is used to precisely heat up and tighten your underlying vaginal tissues until shrinkage occurs. After a series of two to three treatments spaced one month apart, you’ll notice your genital tissues are noticeably tighter. Treatment typically lasts around half an hour and is very comfortable—most of our patients report that it feels like a gentle, warm massage.

ThermiVa has also been shown to help treat other conditions and provide general improvement of vaginal and urinary function, including:

  • Alleviation of post-menopausal dryness
  • Reduction of urinary stress incontinence
  • Improvement in orgasm quality, even for those who are anorgasmic
