What is a ThermiTight® Skin Treatment?
ThermiTight® is the first minimally invasive aesthetic procedure that helps reverse the effects of aging by delivering a dose of controlled thermal energy under the skin. This helps to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the body.
Am I a Candidate for a ThermiTight® Treatment?
This procedure is ideal for patients who would like to look younger, but who do not want to undergo having any form of actual surgery on their face, jowls, neck, abdomen or thighs. For optimal results, we typically combine this treatment with liposuction.
How is ThermiTight® Performed?
The skin tightening treatment is performed under local anesthesia, by inserting a tiny probe under the skin of the affected area. Radiofrequency energy is then applied through the probe to the target areas, resulting in prolonged stimulation of collagen production that makes the skin firmer. The ThermiTight® skin tightening treatment has a safety system in place, which helps ensure that the heat is applied evenly throughout the treated area. This helps prevent as much discomfort as possible, while also preventing the patient from being burned in any way. It also ensures that the treatment is evenly applied. The procedure takes less than an hour to complete. Patients may experience mild bruising or swelling to the area and are provided with a topical dressing. Patients can resume normal activities one day post procedure. ThermiTight® provides non-invasive skin tightening with continued improvement over a period of six months.
What is the Downtime Following the Procedure?
One of the main advantages of this form of skin tightening is that in most cases, patients are able to return to a completely normal level of activity within 24 hours of having the treatment administered. ThermiTight® usually takes less than an hour to perform on most patients, and the results thereof can be seen virtually immediately afterward. Added advantages are that the appearance of the results tends to improve over time as well, and only a single treatment session will be required.
How Long Will My ThermiTight® Skin Tightening Results Last?
Unlike many other forms of skin tightening treatment, the effects of ThermiTight® have been shown to last for many years. Clinical studies have shown that this treatment is completely safe as well; in fact, the only side effects reported by some patients have been slight swelling and bruising, both of which are easy to treat by means of a topical dressing that is applied to the treatment area afterward.
