Spotlight on ThermiTight!


IMG_6162What is ThermiTight?

ThermiTight can tighten loose skin without surgery, without downtime, and without the use of anesthesia. Skin can be tightened with the use of targeted and controlled, therapeutic heat application. ThermiTight can be performed on both the face and body and is frequently used for sagging knees, loose skin on the belly, sagging jowls, and hanging neck skin.

How does it work?

ThermiTIght uses regulated heat targeted under the surface of the skin at the collagen layer. To get under the skin, the targeted area is numbed and a tiny probe is inserted just below the skin surface. The doctor delivers radio frequency energy through gentle movements, which heats the tissue to a specific internal temperature. The doctor monitors external temperatures to ensure the safety of the skin. Most procedures are followed up with a gentle wrap.

What is a treatment like?

All ThermiTight treatments happen while the patient is awake and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. The treatment is comfortable and is said to feel like having a hot stone massage. Patients can resume normal activities as soon as the next day with no special aftercare instructions required. Patients typically achieve great results with just one treatment, but some may require up to 3 treatments to achieve optimal results for their problem area(s).
