Helping patients in NYC prepare for wrinkle treatment with ThermiSmooth™

ThermiSmooth™ is a member of the ThermiAesthetics™ family of ThermiRF™ FDA cleared aesthetic devices. That’s a lot of “thermis,” but the important thing to remember about ThermiSmooth™ is it’s effectiveness as a non-surgical, non-invasive wrinkle treatment.

This system improves the appearance of wrinkles through controlled radiofrequency (RF) technology. Regulated, precise delivery of RF energy at the surface heats deep layers of skin, shrinking collagen and engaging the body’s natural healing processes – specifically the production of new collagen bundles. Skin becomes firmer right away, and wrinkles continue to smooth for several months.

There’s no downtime following treatment and no specific recovery protocol. However, I like to be sure my patients follow this simple pre-treatment advice for the most satisfying experience and results that are long lasting:

  • Please don’t smoke. Your skin responds better to any type of rejuvenation treatment when it has not been exposed to dehydration and toxic chemicals from smoke. A six week respite is ideal to speed healing from ThermiSmooth™ treatment, and your whole body will thank you for quitting completely.
  • Avoid anti-inflammatory drugs and supplements for two weeks. ThermiSmooth™ is very gentle treatment, but aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications and herbal remedies (including fish oil, vitamin D, capsaicin, glucosamine sulfate, and others) increase risk of undesirable side effects from treatment – temporary redness and swelling.
  • Tell me about other medications you are using. Even topical creams can influence the outcome of ThermiSmooth™, so it is important that we discuss any medications you are using, before treatment.
  • Hydrate! Plenty of plain, fresh water before and after treatment helps you feel great and provides hydration your body needs to rejuvenate efficiently.
  • TNS Essential Serum’s growth factors augment the ability of ThermiSmooth™ to stimulate collagen production. Don’t purchase this product from the internet as the source is not reliable. This company does not sell to third parties, and even on “trusted” sites the seller may have stored the product in a hot, non air-conditioned warehouse or truck which deactivates the fibroblast growth factor. Saving a few dollars will, in the end, cost more money if the product is counterfeit or rendered ineffective from inappropriate storage. Our practice dispenses only products that are obtained directly from the manufacturer.

Remember, call 212-561-5808 and ask for me by name – Dr. Ron Shelton.

Dr. Ron Shelton, formerly having practiced on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, NYC, is now located in Midtown Manhattan.

Do New York City patients really need Voluma™


Dermal fillers aren’t new. Soft tissue augmentation for cosmetic improvement was pioneered in the 1800s. The first FDA-approved injectable filler became commercially available in the United States in 1981. Today we use an assortment of safe, effective dermal fillers from a number of reputable manufacturers to lift, soften wrinkles, augment lips, and contour facial planes.

So you may be wondering why patients in New York City need Voluma™, yet another dermal filler. The answer is that no one product is right for every patient, every treatment area, or type of enhancement. Voluma™ is the first and only injectable filler approved by the FDA for a very specific purpose – instant correction of volume loss in the midcheek area. It has a longevity that may be double normal fillers – Voluma™ can last up to two years.

As we age our faces lose hydration, fat, muscle tone, and even bone. That causes youthful, smooth contours to become more angular, and allows hollows to develop beneath the cheek bones. Without supportive volume, skin sags into wrinkles and folds.

Voluma™ is a smooth, clear gel formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA). This substance occurs naturally in skin and binds to water to provide plumpness. But HA levels decrease as we age, and in response to UV exposure, environmental pollutants, and smoking.


Voluma™ replenishes HA at this precise area, providing instant uplift that softens the appearance of wrinkles and restores rounded contours. A treatment session takes only about 30 minutes, and there is essentially no downtime. Results are long-lasting – about two years in clinical studies.

Yes, as an experienced, Board certified dermatologist I already have a variety of weapons in my arsenal of non-surgical, minimally invasive rejuvenation techniques. And yes, there is room for one more. I use Voluma™ along with neuromodulators and other types of soft tissue fillers, in customized combination protocols specifically designed for each individual patient.

Voluma™ is a powerful tool for a younger looking you.

Patients in New York City ask how ThermiRF ™ is different


The U.S. News and World Report’s doctor finder service lists 1,197 dermatologists in New York City. The majority of those doctors offer a variety of non-surgical, minimally invasive devices and techniques for face and body rejuvenation. While treatment choice is ultimately the patients’, it is natural for them to rely on advice from the dermatologist on how to proceed. I find myself recommending ThermiRF ™ with increasing frequency. Here is more information for patients who want to know why.


What is ThermiRF ™ ?

This is a versatile FDA-cleared device that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to generate heat in deep layers of skin without harm to the surface. We apply the focused RF to induce metabolic changes that tighten skin, improve body contours, and soften wrinkles.


How is it used?

The ThermiRF ™system is a console with a hand piece and several application tips.

ThermiRase relaxes frown lines and tightens skin on the forehead, between the eyebrows. A micro-invasive tip delivers RF energy. It causes an interruption of impulses from nerves that tell muscles to contract. That softens the appearance of wrinkles in much the same way as Botox® Cosmetic, without the use of drugs.

ThermiTight can help lift the sagging lower face, including smile folds, jowls, jaw line, corners of the mouth, and the neck.

For fat reduction and body contouring, a very small probe is passed through the skin into the fatty tissue layer. The probe sends a controlled dose of RF energy to melt targeted fat cells, which are then flushed harmlessly from the body over the next few months.


What makes ThermiRF ™ different?

ThermiRF ™ is an “in between procedure” – in between non-invasive treatments such as Ultherapy®, Pellevé®, and Thermage®, and surgically invasive procedures like face or neck lift. The difference lies in the technology and the results. It is the only temperature controlled aesthetic therapy that penetrates to subdermal layers, with a thermal camera to monitor surface temperature and  an internal probe that records actual temperature achieved by the tissues that the physician intends to tighten. That allows deep heat for maximum collagen remodeling and fat reduction, without the limitation of temperature tolerance of surface skin. The difference is a high safety profile, precise application with effective outcomes.
