What Is ThermiTight® Skin Tightening?
ThermiTight® is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical treatment designed to tighten loose skin and stimulate collagen production through the use of radiofrequency technology. This system works through the use of a small tube called a cannula that delivers precisely targeted radiofrequency energy to heat the subdermal tissue in the treatment area. Insertion of the cannula involves minimal incisions but does not require extensive preparation or downtime. This treatment poses low risks while providing you with effective skin tightening results.
What Does ThermiTight® Treat?
The purpose of ThermiTight® is to improve the appearance of sagging and loose skin. When you arrive at our Fresno center, Dr. Behr will provide you with a thorough evaluation. If this device is seen as a good fit for your specific skin needs, the procedure will be performed. The process takes less than 1-3 hours, depending on your treatment site, and causes minimal discomfort at best.
How Does ThermiTight® Work?
During the procedure, we will provide you with a local anesthetic to make sure you’re comfortable. Then, Dr. Behr will begin by inserting the ThermiTight® probe, or cannula, underneath your skin. This step will involve making small incisions; Sutures are not necessary. After numbing, the treatment will present little-to-no discomfort. At most, you may feel a bit of pressure or warmth throughout the process, but not pain.
What Results Can I Expect?
After your visit, you may experience some swelling and bruising that lasts for about a week. A compression garment is required for 24-48 hours after the procedure. Despite this, you can return to normal activities 24 hours after the procedure. Most of our clients start seeing results in 2-3 months after the procedure but the results will continue over the next several months. Best results are seen about 9-12 months, but they can continue to improve for about one year after the procedure. ThermiTight® offers permanent tightening to the areas being treated. While the results are permanent, the aging process is not stopped.
