Facelifts are great. But not everyone wants to go under the knife. Whether it’s because they don’t want the long recovery process, or are just not ready to commit to surgery, many people are often looking for alternatives.

One of those alternatives is called ThermiTight. This treatment is gaining in popularity because it’s fast and easy, little or no downtime and painless. ThermiTight uses heat to treat skin that is wrinkled and/or sagging.

How does ThermiTight work?

During a ThermiTight treatment, a very small probe is inserted into the tissue being targeted. The probe heats up the tissue to a predetermined temperature using radio frequency. Don’t worry, though, the probe isn’t heating up the surface of your skin, where you’re more sensitive to heat. Rather, the probe heats up the layer of collagen where the pain threshold is much, much higher. You’ll also be injected with an anesthetic before the procedure to ensure your comfort.

To prevent your tissue from getting too hot, the doctor will use Thermal Image Guidance to monitor how hot the skin is. This will help the doctor monitor your skin temperature and keep the treatment as safe as possible. After the procedure is over, a gentle wrap will be placed over the treated area to soothe the skin. In many cases, patients are allowed to resume their normal daily activities as early as the next day. Carefully follow the doctor’s post-treatment instructions for the best possible healing time.

So how does heating up the collagen layer under your skin make your skin look so good? It achieves these great results by stimulating your skin’s own collagen production. Collagen is one of the main building blocks of the skin and when more collagen is produced, the skin firms up and wrinkles seem to melt away.

What conditions can ThermiTight treat?

ThermiTight in the greater Philadelphia area can treat a wide variety of conditions, from sagging skin to fine lines and wrinkles. Best of all, ThermiTight is effective on many different parts of the body, not just the face. And unlike many other cosmetic treatments, ThermiTight only requires a single treatment to be effective.

Who is a good candidate for ThermiTight?

Another great benefit of ThermiTight is that it can treat both men and women of all ages, with all types of different skin. Before the treatment, the doctor will thoroughly examine the area that the ThermiTight will be used on and ask for a brief medical history. While the vast majority of people are qualified candidates for this treatment, the doctor still must ensure it can be safely used on you.
