Cosmetic Laser MD is excited to offer one of the newest skin tightening treatments available: ThermiTight™. ThermiTight is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment for skin tightening. ThermiTight uses radio frequency to stimulate collagen production beneath the skin, which improves sagging and smooths out texture.
During the ThermiTight treatment, a tiny probe is used to gently heat specific tissues to a pre-determined therapeutic temperature. After the treatment you may resume normal activities the next day.
With ThermiTight, Dr. Tanne applies a controlled amount of thermal energy to targeted tissue. The tip of the tiny probe provides constant feedback of the actual temperature during treatment.
In addition, an infrared camera is used to monitor skin temperature to ensure that your treatment is both safe and effective.
ThermiTight™ is formally described as “thermistor-controlled subdermal skin tightening,”* which basically means that regulated heat is targeted at the collagen layer of the skin. To get under the skin, the ThermiRF™ system is used along with a tiny probe, called the SmartTip™ thermistor probe, which is inserted just below the surface. This area is injected with small amount of anesthetic solution prior to treatment.
Dr. Tanne delivers radio frequency energy into the area through gentle movements, which heats the subdermal tissue to a specific internal temperature. She uses the Thermal Image Guidance™ (see above) to monitor external temperatures and ensure the safety of the skin. Most procedures last last less than an hour. As for downtime post-ThermiTight treatment, you should be able to resume normal activities as early as the next day.
