What Is ThermiTight?
ThermiTight is an FDA-approved controlled sub dermal (beneath the skin) tissue heating procedure that allows tightening of the skin and destruction of fat in areas that are treated. It is based on radio frequency.
How Does ThermiTight Work?
A fine probe is inserted in the target area and radio frequency is applied to the probe under the skin or in the fat. The probe delivers the heat generated from the radio frequency. The temperature of the probe is monitored with a special screen and, as the temperature rises, the collagen fibers in the skin shrink resulting in tightening of the skin.
Where Can ThermiTight Be Used on the Body?
ThermiTight can be used on neck, abdomen, thighs, knees, arms and the breast.
Can ThermiTight Reduce Fat?
If you have a small amount of excess fat in the areas mentioned above, ThermiTight can destroy the fat too.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The procedure takes 30 min to 60 minutes for each area.
Is the Procedure Painful?
ThermiTight is performed under local anesthesia. Once the local anesthesia is injected the procedure is painless.
How Long Is the Downtime?
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and has minimal downtime of a few days.
Are There Any Incisions or Scars from the Treatment?
The incision to insert the probe is 2mm or 1/8 of an inch. There are no scars.
When Will I See Results?
You will see an immediate tightening of the skin that will continue to improve over the next few weeks and months.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Typically you will need one treatment only. Additional touch up may be necessary sometimes.
