How Long Does Swelling After ThermiTight Last?

Swelling After ThermiTight

Because the ThermiTight® procedure is non-surgical, patients experience minimal pain, swelling, and bruising. Typically, swelling is most noticeable 24 hoSwelling Last After ThermiTighturs after treatment. However, the amount and longevity of swelling does depend on the patient as well as the part of the body on which you had ThermiTight® treatment. For example, with treatment on the abdomen, swelling could be anywhere from none at all to lasting up to two weeks. However, if you have a ThermiSmooth® Face treatment, it is more likely that you will experience no swelling or bruising at all! Generally, there is very little swelling after ThermiTight.

For Optimal ThermiTight Results

To prepare for your treatment, it is a good idea to drink 3 liters of water daily in the 3 days leading up to your procedure. Hydrated cells are better at tolerating heat, and will therefore be more ready for the procedure than if you were dehydrated. You should continue drinking the 3 liters of water per day 3 days after your procedure as well. Make sure the area that is to be treated is not at all damaged by sun exposure. Additionally, cut, wounded, and infected skin cannot be treated because it could cause infection and discomfort. These few rules will ensure your treatment goes well and could help reduce any chance of swelling or bruising. Talk to Dr. O’Neill or one of his cosmetic experts with any other questions.
