Tighten Sagging Skin on the Face, Neck and Body With Minimal Downtime!
Introducing ThermiTight at The Langdon Center, the new way to tighten sagging skin on the face, neck, and body.
Candidates For ThermiTight
You could be a good candidate for ThermiTight if you are looking to tighten areas of skin without the need for a more invasive surgery.
ThermiTight uses safe, effective radio frequency (RF) energy to heat tissue underneath the surface of the skin, causing contraction and tightening of lax, loose skin. This procedure is minimally invasive, requires only local anesthesia and poses little to no downtime. In addition to the lower face and neck, ThermiTight is used on areas of the body that can benefit from tightening or lifting. These areas include the breasts (may be combined with breast lipo-reduction), abdomen (to reduce wrinkly skin), and upper arms.
After the skin is numbed with local anesthesia, a tiny incision is made in the skin and the ThermiTight electrode is introduced below the surface. The electrode is the size of a needle so no stitches are needed. The electrode provides RF energy while simultaneously measuring the real-time temperature at its tip. Only enough RF energy is delivered to heat the tissue to a safe temperature. For added safety, an external video camera is used to measure the actual surface temperature of the skin.
Results with ThermiTight develop gradually and are long-lasting. The treatment itself typically takes less than one hour, and poses minimal post-treatment redness and swelling—many patients resume their normal activities right away! For some, ThermiTight may put off surgical procedures such as a facelift or a necklift. In certain cases, two ThermiTight treatments may be needed to achieve a patient’s desired improvement.
Commonly Asked Questions about ThermiTight:
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening for the Face, Neck and Body
ThermiTight works by delivering radio frequency (RF) energy underneath the skin, heating the structural tissue and causing contraction and tightening, which improves laxity and sagging.
Commonly treated areas include the lower face and neck, the breasts (this treatment is often combined with No-Scar Breast Reduction), the abdomen, the upper arms (“bat wings”) and more. The ThermiTight treatment is often combined with liposuction if excess fat is also a problem.
The ThermiTight treatment typically takes less than one hour.
There is often immediate visible tightening, but maximal improvement can take three or four months.
Because of the built-in safety features of the ThermiTight RF system, side effects are very unlikely. The device monitors the actual beneath-the-skin temperature, which is kept below the threshold that can cause thermal damage. In addition, an external infrared camera is used to monitor the skin surface temperature.
Although ThermiTight RF treatments can be used safely on nearly all patients, those with extremely loose skin or sagging of the deeper fascial layer may require surgery such as a face lift.
