ThermiTight® in Phoenix, AZ
Most radiofrequency devices are placed on top of the skin with the energy directed below.
With ThermiTight®, a tiny probe is placed under the skin to target the deep layers of skin and trigger a dramatic collagen response.
Loose skin is a common issue that can affect several areas of the face and body. While most treatments were designed for the face and neck, ThermiTight® has the ability to tighten skin all over the body, including:
With only one treatment and practically no downtime, initial results will appear in about six weeks.
The skin will continue to improve for up to six months for a gradual but significant transformation that can last for years.
The side effects for ThermiTight® are very minimal, considering the excellent results the procedure offers.
Swelling and redness may occur, and the area may be sensitive following your treatment. Most patients feel great within three to five days and opt to return to work. Some patients experience swelling that lasts up to 10 days.
Treatment with ThermiTight® does not typically leave scars because there are no actual incisions, only tiny punctures for the needle to feed the ultra-thin probe beneath the skin.
If you opt to receive liposuction along with your ThermiTight® procedure, you can expect a two to three millimeter incision that should heal and be barely visible, if at all.
Patients may experience some results immediately, with effects improving over a period of one to six months as new collagen in your skin is produced. While your skin will continue to age, your results should last for years.
Generally, ThermiTight® does not require multiple treatments, but depending on the individual and the target area, an additional treatment session may be recommended to achieve the best results.
The cost of this procedure will depend on your location, the amount of skin being tightened, and the doctor’s expertise. You should receive an accurate quote during your consultation.
A surprising benefit of receiving treatment with ThermiTight® is that it only requires one session to achieve excellent results. Some other procedures that tighten skin require a strict regimen of up to six treatments.
This treatment can last many years depending on your health and how you take care of your skin. If you keep your skin healthy by eating right, drinking plenty of water, and maintaining a stable weight, your results can last five years. However, if you smoke, expose yourself to the sun regularly, and lose a significant amount of weight, your results may only last two to three years.
ThermiTight® sessions usually last for about an hour but can vary depending on the size and number of the areas being treated.
Results from ThermiTight® skin tightening appear gradually. You may notice subtle results within a week and then see more impressive results as early as three months with continued improvement for up to six months. Taking a closeup photo every month for six months is recommended to see the results clearly.
Women and men between 18 and 65 are the best candidates for treatment with this device. Your heart and lungs should be in good health, but the overall medical requirements aren't as strict as for more invasive surgical procedures.
You should also have realistic expectations about the treatment which treats loose but not excess skin.
You should not receive treatment with this device if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Avoid ThermiTight® if you have any metal in the area(s) to be treated.
