Over time, the aging process and the effects of the sun, wind and pollutants in the air can wreak havoc on our skin. Unfortunately, our highly competitive society places a premium on a youthful look.
Now, our patients can enjoy tighter, smoother more youthful looking skin regardless of their skin type. Our doctor performs the THERMItight® procedure for patients in our region using radiofrequency (RF) energy through a temperature controlled headpiece to treat the early signs of aging. It is ideal for patients with loose or sagging skin; who would like to rejuvenate their skin without having a surgical procedure. THERMItight reduces wrinkles and smoothes skin without pain, anesthesia or surgery.
How is the THERMItight skin tightening different from laser procedures?
Unlike lasers, where the laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the skin’s surface, the THERMItight energy stimulates the production of collagen (which supports the skin) from within. THERMItight can be used to tighten the skin of the face, neck, chest and arms. THERMItight is the first aesthetic therapy with temperature control. This means the clinician can deliver the desired therapy without risk of burns.
What are THERMItight skin tightening treatments like?
First, we cleanse the area to be treated and apply a gel to the skin. THERMItight treatments are accomplished through a delicate headpiece attached to the ThermiGen™ system. When the handpiece is placed against the skin you will feel the cool tip. When the low energy radiofrequency is administered you will feel a comfortable, warming sensation. The clinician will adjust the temperature to insure the desired treatment dose and your comfort. Treatment time may vary depending on the treatment area and may take between twenty minutes to a half hour.
