ThermiTight is the latest minimally invasive technology to tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and body with little downtime. ThermiTight is a single treatment solution without surgery, and is a type of ThermiRF. We are the first practice to introduce it to Atlanta Georgia and have the most experience using this technology! Our office serves as the Thermi Center of Excellence where we train other doctors.
ThermiTight uses thermistor-regulated radio frequency (RF) energy to achieve desired cosmetic results. Radio frequency (RF) energy is a safe and effective way to heat body tissue. It safely heats body tissue to stimulate collagen and skin tightening.
WHERE IS THERMITIGHT EFFECTIVE
ThermiTight can be used on areas of the face or body that can benefit from skin tightening or lifting. These areas include the face, neck, breast, abdomen, back, upper arms, and thighs.
HOW IS IT DONE
ThermiTight is performed in our fully accredited office procedure room using local anesthesia. The area of loose skin or excess fat is numbed with local anesthesia. A micro-incision is made in the skin and the ThermiTight probe is inserted in the area. Our micro-incision is so tiny that stitches are not required. The ThermiTight electrode delivers RF energy to heat the tissue to a safe temperature while simultaneously measuring the real-time temperature at its tip. In addition to the internal temperature, we use an external video camera to measure the actual external temperature of the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENT ARE NEEDED
ThermiTight is a single treatment solution without surgery. Most our patients require only one treatment session. The treatment itself typically takes less than one hour, and poses minimal post-treatment redness and swelling—many patients resume their normal activities right away! In certain cases, additional ThermiTight treatments may be needed to achieve a patient’s desired improvement.
WHAT ABOUT RESULTS
Results with ThermiTight develop gradually and are long-lasting. Most of our patients see their results in a few weeks. We are the first practice to introduce it to Atlanta Georgia and have the most experience using this technology!
