These are the frequently asked questions (FAQ) about ThermiTight.
HOW DOES THERMITIGHT WORK?
ThermiTight works by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy underneath the skin, heating the structural tissue and causing contraction and tightening, which improves laxity and sagging.
IS THERMITIGHT A LASER?
ThermiTight is not a laser. Unlike RF energy, Laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skin’s surface, the RF energy stimulates the production of collagen (which supports the skin) from within. ThermiRF can be used to tighten the skin of the face, neck, back, chest and arms. ThermiRF is the first aesthetic therapy with temperature control. This means the clinician can set the desired temperature and deliver the therapy reducing risk of burns to the patien
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED WITH THERMITIGHT?
Commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck, abdomen, love handle, upper arms, back, and more. The ThermiTight treatment is often combined with liposuction if excess fat is also a problem.
HOW MANY TREATMENT IS NEEDED?
ThermiTight is a single treatment solution for loose skin anywhere in the body. The treatment usually takes less than 1 hour.
HOW LONG DOES A THERMITIGHT TREATMENT TAKE?
The ThermiTight treatment typically takes less than one hour.
CAN I COMBINE IT WITH OTHER PROCEDURES?
ThermiTight can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as liposuction. Liposuction is frequently combined for the treatment of excess fat.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
There is often immediate visible tightening. Most of our patients will see a significant improvement within a few weeks, but maximal improvement can take three or four months.
ARE THERE ANY POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS?
Because of the built-in safety features of the ThermiTight RF system, side effects are very unlikely. The device monitors the actual beneath-the-skin temperature, which is kept below the threshold that can cause thermal damage. In addition, an external infrared camera is used to monitor the skin surface temperature.
WHO SHOULDN’T RECEIVE THERMITIGHT?
Although ThermiTight RF treatments can be used safely on nearly all patients, those with extremely loose skin or sagging of the deeper fascia layer may require surgery such as a face lift.
