Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Metro Detroit Michigan
What is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is a minimally invasice, non-surgical procedure to tighten loose and sagging skin on the face and body. ThermiTIght utilizes advanced RF technology to deliver controlled thermal energy under the skin to reverse the effects of aging. This is the perfect option for individuals that are looking for non-surgical skin tightening. ThermiTight is a more aggressive treatment than Thermi250, so less treatments are needed for optimal results! For those looking into liposuction, this procedure is the perfect pairing for tightening skin after removing fat.
What is Radiofrequency?
What Should I Anticipate About the Forehead Lift Recovery?
Surgery will remove excess skin, stretch the 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 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 radio waves that when contacting water containing substances 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. It does not happen immediately but over time, usually up to 18 months.
ThermiRF™ uses radiofrequency, but instead of ultrahigh frequencies as used in a microwave oven, ThermiRF™ uses low-frequency radio waves to heat tissue and cause contraction of that tissue.
What is involved in the micro-invasive procedure?
The micro-invasive treatment is only a break in the skin as small as a pinhole made by a needle. There is no need for stitches and no visible scarring. For the ThermiTight procedure, a 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. The local anesthetic can then be introduced under the skin to numb the area being treated. Next, a thin probe is placed through those same needle holes and injected 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. The technician then achieves the surface temperature goal at all times and prevents 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 handpiece. The handpiece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating to tighten and smooth skin of the face and eyes.
