Achieve a Firmer Face and Body with ThermiTight Treatments

ThermiTight Beverly Hills

Loose skin is expected as you get older or lose a significant amount of weight. Your tissues lose the ability to “bounce back” with age because your body produces less and less collagen and elastin. This process can happen faster with weight fluctuations, smoking, excessive UV exposure, and poor genetics. ThermiTight uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat sagging skin tissues and stimulate new collagen and elastin for better skin quality and a firmer face and body contour. Charles S. Lee, MD, offers ThermiTight in Beverly Hills at Enhance® Medical Center. 

The Benefits of Skin Tightening with ThermiTight

ThermiTight provides firmer skin by triggering your body’s natural healing response to inflammation in the treated area. This minimally invasive procedure improves loose, sagging skin in multiple locations, including: 

  • Lower face
  • Jowls
  • Neck 
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Thighs
  • Knees 

Treatments with ThermiTight tighten loose skin without scarring or downtime, unlike facial plastic surgeries and lift procedures. The heat employed by the device offers some fat reduction benefits because the radiofrequency energy induces adipolysis, which kills fat cells. 

What to Expect During ThermiTight Treatments

This skin-tightening technology typically takes about 60 minutes and uses local anesthesia for a comfortable procedure. Dr. Lee creates a small incision in the targeted area and inserts the ThermiTight probe. The small device delivers RF energy to the tissues, which may feel like a deep hot stone massage. When the probe is finished with the treatment, the small incision is left open to heal naturally without stitches, leaving a virtually undetectable mark in its place. The area is covered with dressings that must be changed every four to six hours. 

ThermiTight patients typically reach their desired results with a single treatment, an improvement upon other skin tightening technologies. The laser is safe to use on all skin tones and skin types. 

Does ThermiTight Require A Recovery Period?

Dr. Lee tells patients to rest for 12 to 24 hours after ThermiTight treatment and limit activities for several days. Patients may have soreness and swelling in their face or body, but ice can ease that discomfort. Apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area in 20-minute increments. Dr. Lee will provide instructions for cleaning and caring for the incision and treated area.
