How Does The ThermiTight Work?
The ThermiTight skin tightening system works by inserting a tiny probe under the skin that is used to heat the sub-dermal tissue through the use of radio frequency waves. The heating of the underlying sub-dermal tissue from the radio frequency waves promotes new collagen growth and improved skin laxity.
During your ThermiTight treatment, Dr. O’Neill is able to precisely monitor external temperatures so that the heating is extremely precise. We do this while maintaining a temperature that is safe for your skin. Watch the animation below to see what happens to the underlying tissue during a ThermiTight treatment!
Most patients see improved tightness in their skin in just a few weeks after their first treatment. We recommend two treatments, however this depends on the amount of skin laxity your skin has and your desired results!
As there is a small probe injected into the tissue, this procedure is micro-invasive performed under local anesthesia. This is an outpatient procedure, so patients can go home soon after their treatment. After treatment, patients can expect some swelling and bruising, but they are typically ready to get back to a light schedule within a few days.
