How Does ThermiTight Work?


Anyone who is looking for a non-invasive or non-surgical solution to help reverse signs of aging will be able to benefit from having ThermiTight treatments done. Also referred to as subdermal skin tightening, this treatment can be administered on a few areas of the body such as the face, abdomen, jowls, and neck area or even on their thighs.

Controlled Thermal Energy

This procedure is the first of its kind and it works by having a tiny probe inserted into the skin of the area that is to be treated. Small doses of radiofrequency energy are then applied to the probe, which are immediately delivered to the target areas. Gentle movements are applied in order to heat the surrounding tissue to the desired temperature and this result in them shrinking virtually immediately. There is a safety system in place to help ensure that heat is evenly applied and distributed throughout the areas being treated, which not only prevents patients from being burned; it ensures that the entire surrounding area receives an equal amount of treatment.

A Fairly Quick Procedure

One of the main advantages of ThermiTight is that it can be performed relatively quickly – in most cases, it will take less than an hour. Before getting started, the surgeon will administer a local anesthetic to the patient to help minimize discomfort in the areas that will be treated, and in most cases, results will be visible almost immediately afterwards. In addition, continued improvement can be expected within a few months after it has been done as well. Upon completion, the treated areas will have topical dressings applied to them.

Downtime is Minimal

Patients who have this procedure will be pleased to know that in most cases, they will be able to resume their normal duties and routines a day or so after having it performed. Although there may be a small amount of bruising and discomfort in the treated areas for a few days, this will improve over time as well. However, it is not normally severe enough to have an effect on most day to day activities. In cases where discomfort doesn’t seem to improve or if bruising becomes worse after treatment, the surgeon should be notified immediately.

Long Lasting Results

Unlike the end results of many other forms of treatment that only last a few months, the effects of ThermiTight have been proven to last for quite a few years. In most cases, the worst side effects reported have been redness and slight swelling on the treatment areas, but these have been successfully addressed by means of topical treatments. Studies that have been done have shown that this is one of the safest treatment options for patients who want to reverse signs of aging on their bodies.
