ThermiTight for Skin Tightening - Charleston SC

Am I a Candidate for ThermiTight for Skin Tightening


When you’re looking to have a skin tightening procedure that looks natural and that will improve your appearance cosmetically, it’s important to know if you’re a good candidate for ThermiTight. Skin laxity is a common concern mainly for people who:


  • Are genetically disposed
  • Showing signs of aging
  • Have experienced drastic weight loss
  • Have suffered an accident or trauma


For people who are not comfortable with the idea of undergoing aggressive surgery to correct their skin laxity, ThermiTight is a painless micro-invasive alternative that doesn’t require a long recovery. Many patients prefer this alternative because they don’t have to worry about taking time away from their lives to recover.


How Does ThermiTight Work?


This modern procedure for facelifts and liposuction uses radiofrequency technology that stimulates your collagen production by heating your subdermal tissue with a probe that is placed underneath your skin. The results are most favorable for patients who are looking to smoothen, tighten and lift areas of their skin. It is an attractive alternative for patients who are aiming to look younger and do not want to have the standard surgical facelift procedure. Some patients choose ThermiTight to lessen areas of cellulite in various areas of their bodies.


ThermiTight can be useful on just about all parts of the body including the abdomen, neck, face, breast, and arms. Since tumescent anesthesia is used, you won’t need general anesthesia unless you prefer it. There is absolutely no downtime and the only post-treatment care that is required is the use of mild soap and sunscreen.


Will ThermiTight for Skin Tightening Work for Me?


The perfect candidate for a ThermiTight procedure are people who want to tighten any area of their skin that they would like to improve without having to undergo invasive surgery. It’s also ideal for individuals who want their results to last longer than using dermal fillers or who want additional skin tightening performed after a liposuction or CoolSculpting procedure done.
