What is ThermiTight®?
ThermiTight® is a micro-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that can be used to dramatically tighten loose skin and eliminate fat from nearly any area of the body. This procedure is an excellent option for patients interested in undergoing a cosmetic procedure to tighten skin and eliminate fat and who would like to achieve more dramatic results than those possible with a non-invasive procedure alone.
How Does ThermiTight® Work?
Before treatment begins, the target treatment area is thoroughly numbed with a local anesthetic. Once this process is complete, a tiny probe is inserted beneath the skin. Through this probe, radiofrequency energy is delivered directly to fat and skin tissues. The affected fat cells begin to rupture and are eventually flushed from the body entirely. Collagen, elastin, and other skin tissues are damaged, spurring the creation of stronger tissues. Over time, this eliminates fat and helps rejuvenate the skin of the treatment area, leaving patients with possibly a smoother, tighter, younger-looking physique.
The probe used during this procedure gives the treatment provider constant, real-time feedback of the temperature of the patient’s inner tissues. This ensures that the skin’s tissues don’t heat up too much, and is part of the reason why this treatment involves only a brief period of downtime.
What conditions does ThermiTight® treat?
Because ThermiTight® is a relatively gentle procedure, it can be used to tighten and tone skin on nearly any area of the body. This includes the:
What can I Expect from a ThermiTight® Treatment?
Typically, each ThermiTight® treatment takes less than one hour to complete. However, the length of each treatment can vary depending on the size of the desired treatment area and the amount of skin laxity and excess fat present. Swelling and redness are common side effects that patients experience after undergoing treatment.
