ThermiTight is considered the first cosmetic procedure which delivers controlled thermal energy underneath the skin in order to reverse the negative effects of aging. ThermiTight uses a minimally invasive technique which tightens loose skin as well as deeper tissues. It is mostly used in areas such as the neck and lower face, helping to lift the neck and jowls.
No. ThermiTight is not a laser. While laser energy is absorbed by the pigment within the skin’s surface, RF (radio frequency) energy stimulates the production of collagen underneath the skin’s surface. ThermiTight, otherwise known as ThermiRF, is mostly used to tighten skin of the face, neck, arms, chest and back. ThermiRF is the first cosmetic treatment with temperature control. Thus, Dr. Friedman can set the exact desired temperature of the treatment, thereby reducing the patient’s risk of getting burns.
ThermiTight is ideally suited for patients who want better results than non-invasive procedures and DO NOT want surgery.
ThermiTight is a great treatment for problematic areas of the neck and lower face.
ThermiTight is quite innovative because it completely bypasses the skin’s outer portion and delivers the radio frequency energy from below. A tiny probe is inserted underneath the skin allowing the radiofrequency energy to be applied directly to the tissues being treated, causing immediate shrinkage. This procedure allows for optimal heating of the skin’s deep tissues, without causing damage to the overlying surrounding skin. This new technique allows for temperatures that were not possible with older technologies to be reached.
Since ThermiTight is performed by making small needle punctures near the ears and beneath the chin, no incisions are necessary. The ThermiTight probe is gently inserted through these areas and is easily threaded underneath the skin. Sutures are thus not necessary. This is the reason that ThermiTight is frequently referred to as injectable RF.
The procedure typically is completed in approximately one hour. The total amount of time depends on the protocol and the areas being treated.
Since ThermiTight is performed using local anesthesia, the procedure does NOT hurt. The area to be treated will be anesthetized and therefore, you should be comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Some patients take a mild sedative to relax before the procedure. Bruising is unlikely and mild swelling is likely following the procedure. Following Dr. Friedman’s aftercare instructions will help to minimize these effects.
After the procedure, most patients generally have minimal to no discomfort. If necessary, any discomfort can be treated with Acetaminophen (acamol). Stronger pain medications are rarely necessary..
Patients may experience a slight amount of swelling and some redness following the procedure. However, they are usually able to return to their regular, normal activity within 24 hours. Swelling generally lasts from 3 to 7 days following the procedure.
Results may be immediate and usually improve over time. By heating the skin as well as deeper tissues, ThermiTight causes your body to create tightening in the treated areas. Most patients begin to see results within 30 days following the procedure. However, the results will continue to improve over the next few months. Most of the results are seen in approximately 3 months time, but the results can continue to improve up until one year following the procedure.
Only one treatment is required using ThermiTight.
ThermiTight induces permanent tightening of the areas that are being treated. However, since the aging process is not stopped, the results are not permanent.
While undergoing the procedure, the ThermiTight device has an internal thermistor which monitors and maintains the temperature that is set by the doctor. The temperature varies according to the area being treated. An infrared thermal camera is also used to monitor the temperature of your skin, enacting as a safety mechanism. If the temperature begins to rise above the desired levels, the machine is then shut off. ThermiTight is thus very safe.
ThermiTight is considered a non-surgical alternative for a facelift or a necklift. However, there is no equivalent non-surgical substitute for having a facelift. The best treatment currently available to correct loose jowls as well as a hanging neck is a surgical facelift and necklift ThermiTight is a procedure that is performed for patients who are not ready to have a facelift or a necklift, in addition to patients who do not want to undergo surgery..ove the desired levels, the machine is then shut off. ThermiTight is thus very safe.
ThermiTight can safely be combined with other aesthetic procedures. For example, liposuction is often combined for the treatment of excess amounts of fat.
ThermiTight RF treatments can safely be used on almost all patients. However, individuals with extremely loose or sagging skin may require invasive surgery, such as a face lift.
ThermiTight’s cost varies according to the areas that are being treated. To learn more about the treatment, please call to request a consultation.
