When it comes to the aging process, it can feel like you are waging a war against fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping skin that creates hollows in your cheeks or makes the skin under your chin hang down. You want to do something to recapture a more youthful appearance, but you don’t want to turn to a drastic alternative like a facelift. Fortunately, you have another option that does not involve an invasive procedure or injections of chemicals. ThermiTight™ and ThermiSmooth™ are two treatments that can help get the results you want.
What is ThermiTight™?
ThermiTight™ is recommended when you are experiencing drooping in the neck area, beneath your chin, and see jowls developing as the skin beneath your jaw begins to droop. It can also be used to treat drooping skin beneath your arms, on your thighs, and on your abdomen.
ThermiTight™ uses radio frequency energy to produce thermal energy, or heat, which is applied through a probe that is inserted below the skin in the area of concern. The temperature is carefully monitored to avoid any burning. As heat is applied to the fat, skin, and other tissues that are being treated, collagen production is stimulated.
Collagen makes the skin more elastic, producing a firming effect. Circulation increases as well. The result is smoother skin that is tighter as well.
As an outpatient procedure, the ThermiTight™ treatment can take an hour and does require the use of a sedative and local anesthesia before the probe is inserted. Application of cold compresses and pain relievers are effective in managing discomfort. You can return to your normal routine by the following day and will only miss a few days of work.
What is ThermiSmooth™?
ThermiSmooth™ uses radio frequency energy as well and a handheld device that is not inserted into the skin. It is used to address wrinkles and lines in the face. The device is applied to the face, running over the areas of concern, stimulating collagen production as heat is applied.
There is no need for any medication with ThermiSmooth™. Your visit can take a half hour, to an hour and you can immediately resume your normal routine. Over time, you will see a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face.
