Despite of all of your efforts to protect your skin, using moisturizer and sunblock for years, you cannot stop the hands of time from spinning round and round. You may not be able to stop the aging process, but there is something you can do about it. When you want to tighten your skin and you do not want to go through an invasive procedure like a facelift, skin tightening is an option. You can choose ThermiTight or ThermiSmooth, depending on the results that you want to see and the condition of your skin.
What is the ThermiTight Procedure?
The ThermiTight procedure is a non-surgical skin tightening alternative. It involves in the use of a handheld device. Thermal energy is applied to the skin through the device to stimulate the skin, using radiofrequency technology. The first step is to insert a probe under the skin in the area of concern. Radiofrequency energy is then applied through the ThermiTight device, providing heat, which causes the tissues to shrink. In addition to treating facial skin, the ThermiTight device is used on sagging skin in the abdomen, the waistline, the hips, and buttocks. You will see an immediate tightening of your skin and notice that the tissues continue to tighten over time. The procedure is performed in the office, and a local anesthetic is used to ensure there is minimal discomfort. Any redness or swelling should go down within a few days, and your results can last for years.
What is the ThermiSmooth Procedure?
The ThermiSmooth Procedure also uses radiofrequency energy and a handheld device. It is used mainly to treat sagging skin in the face. No probe is inserted under the skin as facial skin is treated, including the cheeks and eyelids. It takes three treatments, and these treatments are spread out in intervals of three weeks. After four months, you should begin to notice the results. This alternative is less involved than the ThermiTight procedure but does involve a longer period. Heat is applied to the surface of the skin, penetrating to deeper levels, and feels like a massage. This treatment is considered most effective when sagging is mild.
