What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a minimally invasive, non-surgical method to tighten loose skin and deeper tissues by using radiofrequency technology. This radiofrequency energy gently heats and contracts the skin to stimulate collagen production. ThermiTight strengthens your skins underlying support system helping to tighten sagging and loose skin at low risk and painless way.
What are the targeted areas for ThermiTight?
ThermiTight can be used for skin tightening almost anywhere on the body. The most popular areas that our patients at Behr Laser & Skin Center desire are:
- Lower face to lift the jowls
What should I expect during my ThermiTight treatment?
Depending on the size of the area being treated, ThermiTight treatment typically takes less than 1 – 3 hours. An anesthetic will be injected into the area being treated. Once the patient is comfortable, our physician will insert the ThermiTight probe underneath the skin followed by back and forth movements throughout the treatment area. ThermiTight is performed through small incisions; Sutures are not necessary. You can expect slight swelling but should be able to return to your normal routine within three days.
Am I A candidate for ThermiTight?
Ideal candidates for the ThermiTight are patients who want to significantly tighten the lower face and/or neck without undergoing a large procedure or have small fat deposits around their mid-section and require further tightening in the treatment area. It can be an excellent option for someone who is interested in preventative, anti-aging treatments. This procedure is effective, comfortable for our patients, and minimally invasive. Our physicians at Behr Laser & Skin Center will take time during your consultation to determine your best options.
Will my ThermiTight Treatment Hurt?
Because ThermiTight uses local anesthetic some patients experience minimal discomfort during the numbing process. After the area is numbed, however, there is little-to-no discomfort. Patients may feel pressure or warmth, but not pain.
Will There Be Downtime After my ThermiTight Treatment?
Patients can experience some swelling and bruising lasting about 1 week. A compression garment is required for 24-48 hours after the procedure. Patients can return to normal activities 24 hours after the procedure.
How long before I see results?
Most patients start to see results in 2 – 3 months after the procedure but the results will continue over the next several months. In about 9-12 months most of the results are seen, but they can continue to improve for about one year after the procedure. ThermiTight causes permanent tightening to the areas being treated. While the results are permanent, the aging process is not stopped.
