ThermiTight is a painless, non-surgical procedure used to tighten the skin, shrink the fat, and support sagging structures in the neck. ThermiTight is ideal for patients who DO NOT want surgery, but desire more results than non-invasive procedures (such as Thermage, Pelleve, Ulthera) can deliver.
ThermiTight delivers controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. The ThermiTight offers many advantages to enhance beauty by:
• Removing or reducing the forehead lines on a long-term basis
• Tightening the skin, shrinking the fat, and supporting sagging structures
• Generating collagen: it may be used for stretch marks, cellulite, and other disorders
What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight a powerful, new technology utilizing radiofrequency for heating the tissue to alter the collagen matrix and other tissue elements.
Lines, wrinkles and sagging skin result from aging which alters collagen as well as decreasing volume. Collagen, the major structural protein of the body, is in every organ and is especially important in the skin. As the skin loses collagen, it thins and becomes inelastic. Although collagen is constantly remodeling, aging gradually reduces the collagen content in the skin. ThermiTight tightens the skin, and causes collagen regeneration by the body. Although precise, the laser heats the skin but generally does not heat deeper tissues very well, such as the stretched and distorted suspensory ligaments of the skin. Many technologies have been promoted for this but only cause skin problems and pain. ThermiTight directly targets the collagen in these ligaments and on the underside of the skin dramatically tightening it.
ThermiTight usually takes less than one hour, with little or no downtime. A tiny probe is inserted under the skin and radiofrequency energy is applied directly to the target tissues causing immediate shrinkage. Results are immediate and improve over time. Patients may experience slight swelling and redness and are usually able to return to normal activity within 24 hours.
Benefits of ThermiTight in Institute of Aesthetic Surgery:
- No Incisions – There are no incisions or sutures. The procedure is very precise in targeting small areas.
- Reduced Anesthesia – Treatment with the ThermiTight energy is relatively painless. Two or three skin entry points are numbed with local anesthetic and tumescent technique is used. Many times pain medicine is not needed in the postop period.
- Long lasting – The effects last a long time compared with other treatments, but duration is unknown. Although immediate results can be seen, full effects may take up to a year.
This new, exciting technology offers many benefits and represents another milestone in our effort to enhance the inner beauty.
