One of the clearest signs of aging is loose, sagging skin, a result of the body’s collagen production slowing down as we get older. Some of the best skin tightening procedures address collagen reduction by utilizing the body’s healing mechanisms to kick-start production of collagen. Skin tightening procedures like ThermiTight® are quickly gaining popularity because they’re minimally invasive give lift and provide firmness to skin. With just a little push from advanced technology, the results from ThermiTight® come from your body’s own collagen production.
What is ThermiTight®?
ThermiTight® is skin tightening at its very cutting edge. Formally, ThermiTight® is “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening,” but to put in simpler terms, it’s a skin tightening procedure that delivers precise amounts of radiofrequency energy directly under the skin in order to stimulate collagen production.
ThermiTight® is truly state-of-the-art because of its multiple safeguards and efficient performance. The applicator provides constant feedback to your physician about the exact amount of energy being delivered by the device; at the same time, an infrared camera constantly monitors your skin to make sure it’s getting safe amounts of energy.
It’s that extra little innovation that allows the patient to get everything they want from the ThermiTight®: lowered risks, speedy recovery, a gentle procedure, and all you need is one treatment.
To make the procedure as comfortable as possible, a local anesthetic will be applied to the treatment site. ThermiRF SmartTip™ thermistor probe is then placed into the area underneath the skin, also known as the subdermal tissue. Once there, the probe will precisely distribute the radiofrequency energy that will then trigger an increase in collagen production in the skin and restore your skin’s youthful elasticity and firmness.
Skin Tightening Recovery
Thanks to the safety and precision of the procedure, ThermiTight® requires little to no downtime. The most that patients feel after the procedure is some temporary swelling.
Where Does Skin Tightening Work?
ThermiTight® is adaptable and effective enough to be used on the neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, thighs and knees—some of the areas the most vulnerable to signs of aging. ThermiTight® also has the added benefit of working on all skin types. Because ThermiTight® harnesses your body’s collagen production, the results will appear gradually but will last for years.
