ThermiTight Face, Neck, Arm Skin Tightening, and More!
ThermiTight is a non-surgical, minimally invasive radio frequency skin tightening treatment that uses a tiny probe to deliver energy just beneath the surface of the skin. It is used to tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, tummy, breasts, arms and thighs.
What is Radiofrequency?
Surgery will remove excess skin, stretch skin, re-position skin, but it will not tighten skin unless heat is used. Perhaps it’s neck laxity and you are not ready for a facelift, or maybe you just do not want a facelift? Or it’s that little extra skin on the abdomen or arms that bothers you, but you don’t want a scar?
How do we do achieve tightening of tissue without surgery? The secret is radiofrequency energy and Thermi-Tight!
Radiofrequency is like a microwave oven in how it heats food. Microwaves are ultra high frequency radiowaves that when contacting a water containing substance will result in the production of heat within the food. When applied to living tissue, the production of this heat will cause the tissue to tighten or shrink by stimulating collagen. This does not happen immediately, but over a period of up to 18 months.
ThermiRF™ uses radiofrequency, but instead of ultrahigh frequencies as used in a microwave oven, ThermiRF™ uses low frequency radiowaves to heat tissue and cause contraction of that tissue.
What is involved in the microinvasive procedure?
The micro-invasive treatment is when only a break in the skin as small as a pinhole, made by a needle is made. There is no need for stitches and no visible scarring. For Thermi Tight few tiny holes are made in the skin with a hypodermic needle. Next, a thin blunt tipped hollow instrument called a cannula is placed through those tiny holes in the skin so that a local anesthetic can be introduced under the skin to numb the area being treated. Next, a thin probe is placed through those same needle holes and introduced under the skin being treated. The tip of the probe emits radiofrequency energy or heat while the probe also records the temperature inside the skin to the technician to ensure the optimal heating for skin tightening is achieved.
We utilize a special infrared camera that is aimed at the treatment area and an infrared temperature map of the area is displayed on a monitor continually, so that the technician achieves the surface temperature goal at all times and to prevent a burn from occurring.
ThermiSmooth Tissue Heating
ThermiSmooth - Controlled Non-Invasive Tissue Heating for skin tightening
ThermiSmooth® Face is performed using a specially designed temperature controlled hand piece. The hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating to tighten and smooth skin of the face and eyes.
