What does a supermodel do when she’s decided to pursue something new? She travels! New Zealand and American supermodel, Rachel Hunter, is embarking on a journey around the world to discover what beauty means to other people and the secrets of lasting beauty, great health, and long life on her television series “Rachel’s Tour of Beauty.”
When she met up with plastic surgeon, Dr. Honrado to discuss cosmetic surgery, he had some questions to ask her.
“What is it that bothers you?” Dr. Honrado asked. “When you look in the mirror, what do you see?”
“I’m 45. I guess the areas that have always been of great concern for me are the jowl areas,” Rachel replied. “I’m at the perfect age for this starting to wrinkle and sag. I mean, I’m not looking to be 30, but you just want to look fresh and lovely when you wake up, not, you know, 20.”
Dr. Honrado’s suggestion: ThermiSmooth. ThermiSmooth uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin. It is a relatively new procedure that doesn’t require any scalpels or anesthetics, and takes only 30 minutes.
During the treatment, a probe is used that delivers the radiofrequency energy. This energy causes a trauma to the skin, which results in the skin’s natural healing response, creating new collagen. As the body heals, patients begin to look refreshed and rejuvenated. Unlike liposuction, the fat dissolves, and your body absorbs it and then eliminates it.
The best part? There is no downtime associated. After treatment, patients can return to their everyday activities- perfect for the busy life of a supermodel!
Dr. Johnston has seen good results for those with minimally lax skin. If you are interested in ThermiSmooth, contact our office today to schedule a consultation!
