THERMITIGHT

Ageing is inevitable, which means there is no way to escape the loose and sagging skin that tends to appear along the jawline and neck. Stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge with diet and exercise also become more common with age. Fortunately, there are ways to reverse the common effects of ageing thanks to advancements in cosmetic technology.

ThermiTight is a revolutionary new skin rejuvenation system that’s designed to address skin laxity as well as stubborn pockets of unwanted fat. Developed by Dr Leonard Miller, the ThermiTight system uses radiofrequency technology to target the deepest layers of tissue in areas such as the neck, lower face, arms and stomach.

How ThermiTight Works

ThermiTight treatments are straightforward and with the help of a local anaesthetic, your session will be pain-free. To complete the treatment, a small probe is placed underneath the skin in the area where skin laxity is an issue.

This probe emits radiofrequency energy into the sub-dermal tissue layer, causing it to immediately become more compact and the skin to tighten. The temperature of the probe can be increased and decreased using a computer. The length of your ThermiTight session will depend on the size of the treatment area and how many areas you want to treat but you can expect your session to last about an hour.

Most patients will only require a single treatment to see results but this will be discussed with you during your consultation.

ThermiTight is a good option for anyone who wants to lift and smooth sagging skin on their face and neck without the need for surgery or a lengthy recovery period. Candidates should be in good physical health and not smoke as this can alter results.

The areas that are usually treated with the ThermiTight system include the neck, jowls, stomach, arms, thighs, buttocks and love handles.

What to Expect after Your ThermiTight Treatment

Following your ThermiTight treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort for a small period of time. There will also be some mild bruising and swelling but this will also subside within a day or so.

While the tissue underneath your skin will shrink immediately, the final results of your ThermiTight treatment can be seen after 6 – 8 weeks. The results of your treatment aren’t permanent but they will last several years.

Because ThermiTight treatments are simple in nature, most patients are able to return to work after a day or two. If you experience more swelling than usual, you may need to spend one or two additional days at home. Patients are free to return to their usual routine after a day or two.

In some instances, your clinician may advise you to wear a compression garment for a day or two, which will help with pain and swelling reduction. Even though side effects are minimal, there is a chance that you will experience some tingling and numbness in the area that was treated but your clinician will take you through everything you need to know before and after your treatment.
