Age, genetics and a prior history of being overweight can cause people to have excess skin and fat under their chin.
This often makes people appear heavier and makes them feel self-conscious. Fortunately, ThermiTight can help.
It’s a minimally invasive option for tightening the skin that doesn’t involve surgery or long recovery times.
Instead, it utilizes a small device that emits radiofrequency waves in a temperature-controlled fashion.
ThermiTight is typically used to address skin laxity of the face and neck, and it’s ideal for combating that stubborn “double chin” so many people struggle with.
Unlike other radiofrequency treatments that only work on the surface of the skin, ThermiTight delivers consistent heat through a probe inserted beneath the skin.
This probe both monitors and delivers radiofrequency energy to the deep tissues, making it particularly effective for double chins.
How Does It Work?
The controlled heat delivered through the ThermiTight probe targets the skin’s underlying collagen bundles and supporting fibers, denaturing them and causing them to shrink.
Afterward, the broken down collagen reassembles itself and new collagen is produced, which helps the deep layers of tissue to become firmer and tighter.
This helps patients achieve a younger, healthier and more toned appearance.
ThermiTight can also be used to target fat cells in the neck area, which will reduce the stubborn fat under the chin that typically fails to respond to diet and exercise.
The patented technology used in ThermiTight heats the fat tissue enough to destroy the cells, which helps to re-sculpt the neck and chin.
Who is a Good ThermiTight Candidate?
Good candidates for ThermiTight treatment are those who want to permanently eliminate their double chin and tighten their skin without having to deal with the risks, costs and recovery times associated with surgery.
Ideally, candidates have a small to moderate quantity of fat or loose skin in the neck area. The procedure can be performed safely on dark or light skin.
Potential candidates should also be in general good health and not under the care of a physician for bleeding disorders or other issues that could increase the risk of complications.
Are There Side Effects? How Long Does Recovery Take?
Mild side effects like bruising, swelling and tenderness should be expected, but these resolve within a week.
