With all the procedures and treatments that can make your face look young again, how do you decide which one is right for you? The best way is to know what each procedure does, how it works and the results you can expect. For example, while a facelift might be very effective at erasing wrinkles and removing excess skin, it is an invasive procedure that many want to avoid. Further, not everyone who wants to look younger actually needs plastic surgery.

One treatment that is gaining more and more attention is called ThermiTight. This is a very simple, minimally invasive procedure that can treat everything from fine lines and wrinkles to sagging skin. ThermiTight uses advanced technology that makes it a single-treatment solution to erasing fine lines and wrinkles.

Further, ThermiTight can be used for all different skin types on people of all different ages. During your initial consultation, the doctor will examine the area that needs treatment and will tell you if you’re a good candidate for ThermiTight.

How Does ThermiTight Work?

ThermiTight uses the skin’s own collagen production to its advantage. After being injected with a small dose of anesthetic, a very small probe is inserted into the skin that’s being treated. The probe uses a radiofrequency to heat up to a pre-set temperature. But don’t worry, you won’t feel any burning sensations because the area under the skin where the probe goes is not as sensitive to heat as the skin’s surface is. Further, the doctor uses an infrared camera to monitor your skin temperature during the procedure to keep you safe and comfortable.

Most patients describe their ThermiTight treatment as painless. There might be some slight discomfort when the anesthetic is injected. But it will be minimal.

The heat from the probe will stimulate your skin’s collagen production. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks of our skin. Collagen is what gives our skin a firm look. After your ThermiTight procedure, your skin will start to produce its own collagen and over time, you’ll see the fine lines and wrinkles begin to disappear.

How Much Downtime Is There After The ThermiTight Treatment?

After the procedure is over, the doctor will place a soothing wrap over the treated area. You will then be given post-treatment instructions. Follow the doctor’s directions carefully so you can heal properly. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities the following day.
