THERMItight is a skin tightening procedure that, unlike other THERMI procedures, works by heating tissue under the skin instead of through the skin. This results in tighter skin in the face, neck, and body along with fewer wrinkles and younger looking skin.
If you have minimal to moderate loose, aging, or wrinkling skin on the lower face, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, or thighs and knees and are not ready or willing to undergo surgery, you may be a good candidate for THERMItight. Patients should be in good general health, as THERMItight does involve making a small incision under the skin to insert the probe.
During a THERMItight procedure, a small incision is made in the treatment area. The THERMItight probe is inserted under the skin and gently moved in a circular or sweeping motion to heat the tissue. The heat causes dermal shrinkage and stimulates collagen production. The entire procedure time varies, but usually takes about 90 minutes and can be performed in our office. Typically only one treatment is required.
After a THERMItight procedure a wrap is applied to the treatment area and patients can resume activities the following day. Patients may experience redness, bruising, or swelling and although rare, nerve damage is possible. Results are typically visible in 6-8 weeks and will last for several years.
