What is ThermiTight™?

BY IN ThermiRF Comments Off on What is ThermiTight™?

ThermiTight is an aesthetic procedure that administers precise thermal energy under the skin, reversing the sagging effects of aging. This is a great alternative for patients who may not be ready for a cosmetic surgery, but still want younger, natural results. Overall, this simple procedure can give you a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

How ThermiTight Works


ThermiTight is a practically painless, non-invasive procedure that only takes one hour or less. During the procedure, a local anesthetic is given to the area being treated. By inserting the shutterstock_155299397tiny ThermiRF™ SmartTip™ probe under the skin, the surgeon makes gentle movements to heat the tissues with radiofrequency energy. This process causes shrinkage of tissue immediately and the results improve over the course of weeks. All the effects have been shown to last several years, improving the appearance of skin laxity for a younger presence.

Safety is the number one priority, so this procedure also utilizes Thermal Image Guidance™ that monitors heat precisely to the shrinking tissues. After the procedure, a wrap is gently applied to the treated area and the patient can return to regular activities the next day. Patients may experience slight swelling and redness, but there are no other complications associated with ThermiTight.
